Hello Penny's Happy love home! Video Tour


This is similar to my Master Detective Secret Room BriefcaseThis project here is Penny's house and her shop (yes that is my dream too and coming soon!) I like to make dollhouses, but I also like to carry something cute, so I asked to my husband’s friend who makes movie sets as a carpenter to make me this case. I am so happy with it that I am going to have a class for this. Whoever thinks “Penny's Family Hello Happy Love Home” is interesting is invited to come to my class.

Thank you so much!!

My Family Album

By Clare Charvill

"Penny's Paper Doll Family is the perfect paper collection to create a fun vintage styled family memory book.  I've gone for an 7 3/4" x 7 3/4" album base, the perfect size for the 8 x 8 paper pad.  The framed family picture from the signature paper was just perfect for my cover, and layered on a black frame and foam tape sets the theme for the album perfectly.  Inside the album are three 7 1/2" square pages, each with pockets, photo mats, photo frames made from the ephemera cards, pull out journaling spots and of course members of the family too.  It was a fun little album to create and one that really did take me on a trip down memory lane.
