Saturdays With LeAnn

Hello all my crafty friends, and a happy Saturday to you all!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend and are ready to enjoy some fun projects!  These wonderful projects were created by some very wonderful crafters and I know they will give you tons of creative inspiration!  So sit back and enjoy each one I have to share with you!

Coptic Mini Album By Lisa Fonseca

How many of you have purchased boxed cards because you fell in love with the cute pattern on the cards?  I know I have a few sets sitting in one of my drawers in my craft room.  When I came upon this amazing and fun mini album, I knew I had hit a treasure and a way to finally use some of them in a creative way.  You all know how much I appreciate a unique mini album, and this one is no exception.  Just think of all the possibilities!  I’m thinking this is definitely one of those you need to give a try.

This mini album is very creative and has so many fun details.  You can use all sorts of cute embellishments to add to the binding of the book.  Lisa added mini tassels, heart charms, and sequins.  Inserting some of the envelopes will give you pockets to add memorabilia or extra photos.   You can click here and I will be more than happy to escort you on over to Pink Paislee’s blog where you will see the steps that Lisa has taken to create this fabulous mini album.  Take some time to look around Pink Paislee’s blog to see many more wonderful projects by Lisa, along with more outstanding design team members projects.  I promise you will leave very inspired!

Tropical Backgrounds By Marge Yoon

When creating a card, adding a beautiful background really gives the card that beautiful artsy look with minimal effort.  Your card will be quick and yet showy, not to mention very impressive.  I am a huge fan of using stencils; it is such a great way to add a beautiful patterned background to your cards.  With summer upon us, the tropical theme of the stamps and stencils are perfect for summertime crafting.

Word dies are very popular right now; try stacking several words on top of each other for some added visual interest.  As you can see, the words “happy summer” really pop against the gorgeous tropical background.


I hope you have been inspired to bring out your distress inks and your favorite stencils to begin creating some beautiful backgrounds.  Make several of them up at one time and you will have them ready when you need a quick card.  If you would like to see some of the materials and steps to create these darling cards, click here and I will be happy to escort you on over to Pretty Pink Posh blog.  You will certainly get excited to create some beautiful backgrounds.  Have fun creating!

Mini Suitcase Box By Beatriz Jennings

What a darling box to set out for a home decor piece or to use as a gift box.  Can you imagine being the receiver of this darling box with a special trinket inside?  What a great way to present a gift to a special person.  The box alone would be a perfect gift!   Don’t you just love the feminine touch of the perfectly placed embellishments on top of the box?  So many fun uses for this!

You will enjoy putting this together using your favorite papers and embellishments.  Not only is this fun to create but very easy to put together as well.  I love the fun shape and it is the perfect size for any number of small treats or gifts.  Add a personal sentiment to accent your box.  You will put smiles on so many faces!  Come with me on over to Iralamija’s blog where you can see pictures of the inside as well. You will have so much fun creating that you won’t know when to stop!

Spring Tea Party Cookies By Glory Albin

What’s a tea party without delicious treats on a platter?  This delicate cookie will be the best of the season and will take you right into summer to your back yard parties.  These cookies are sweet, petite, and so fun to eat!  They make the perfect cookie to serve!

These beautifully decorated cookies would be perfect for so many occasions.  Making these by hand will give each cookie it’s own unique look.  If you are looking for a yummy cookie recipe that you can make up at a moment’s notice for any occasion,  this is the cookie for you.  Let’s pop on over to Glorious Treats where Glory will take you step-by-step in making these delicious cookies.  Enjoy baking!

Thank you, my friends, for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing week ahead of you!  I highly recommend taking a few minutes to visit the individual blogs I have shared with you today.  You will be able to check out all the fine details on how these wonderful projects were created.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs to all,
