As I was surfing the net the other day, I came across this cool little album. Shaped like a star, it really caught my eye. I was amazed at how it all folded together into a square, tied together with ribbon. From the top, it's shape is a six-pointed star. The patterned papers coordinate nicely from all sides. The album can be folded, tied and put on a shelf or mailed to a loved one. It can also be displayed on a table top. So many ideas shot into my head when I saw this album. It would make a wonderful keepsake of a special birthday party. It could be made with Halloween papers and used to show six years of costumes. It could showcase six Christmases or six famkily members at Christmas. The possibilities with this one are endless. I'm planning to look through the paper we're ordering for the store so I can pick something yummy and make a sample for everyone to look at. How would you use the star album? Would you be interested in coming to a class and making one? Maybe with some of our newest Christmas papers?

Hi there, welcome to the Whimzee's Girls Online blog! We wanted to start a blog to keep up on what all of you are up to. We want the blog to be a place to share ideas. We'd love to see your newest layouts & papercrafting ideas. Be sure to share links to any cool sites or blogs you find here too! Just to go along with today's newsletter, I want to share a cool idea using Creative Imaginations' Candles & Cakes collection papers. These papers are from Art Warehouse, designed by Danelle Johnson. I checked out her blog last night and found a ton of cool ideas. She used this birthday paper to create an acrylic birthday album. Each page has a photo of her child with her birthday cake. There is a page for each year. Danelle has so many great ideas, be sure to surf around her blog a bit before you go! Let us know what you think about the blog, newsletter and our store. We're working on a website too, and we'll fill you in on all the developments as they happen! We can't wait to hear from you!
