A Welcome Creative Haven

Welcome to Kaymin Kreations - A Creative Haven for Ideas & Inspiration
I've had such a great time with our 'family' blog, I decided it's only fitting to create our Kaymin Kreations 'crafty' blog - my own little Kreative Paradise.
So, no more babble - Let the creativity begin!

This was a wedding shower gift I created for my girlfriend Sue who got married last weekend. The Shadow Box was done in colors that matched her wedding color scheme. It has a place for a 5x7 wedding photo of the bride and groom on their special day.
My mom who owns an Embroidery Store in Ann Arbor, MI (Unique-A-Peel Embroidery), embroidered the hankies with Sue & Kris' name and their wedding date. The hankies were given to special family and friends at the wedding. The Bride and Groom both carried one as well.
Lastly, my most recent favorite creations - CHIPBOARD ALBUMS!
This Bridal Shower Album was purchased through Debbie Gillett, owner of She's a pleasure to work with and I LOVE the albums she creates.
Page by Page photos are below. I'm addicted to my Cricut, and anyone who is a Cricut fanatic like I am knows I used a TON of Cricut cuts! Here's a quick Laundry List of 'stuff' I used on this album, I'm sure there's something I left out, but you get the idea.
Carts used: Walk in My Garden (for flowers/wheel barrow), George (for hearts), Tear Drop (for text - with multiple features used. . . . ), Jasmine (for Photo Corners), Christmas Cheer (for gifts & swirls) MM for Scalloped square
Sizzix die for some add'l swirls
Also used Primas, misc. buttons, skittles, pearls, inks, stamps & cuttlebug embossing folders(Dvine Swirls & Swiss Dots) for photo mats. The photo mats are for either 3x4 photos or 2x3 photos. Because she had 2 bridal showers, I did 2 separate sets of pages for each shower and in between the adjoining pages, I shrunk down the invite and laminated it so she would have it in this album, but it wouldn't take up precious photo space. There are a lot of little places where I have pull tags for additional photos and journaling as she LOVES photos.
Thanks so much for stopping by, feel free to comment, or just say hi.
I'm not quite sure which direction this blog will go, but I'll figure that out as we go along!
Tonight includes working on a little creation for a contest entry on the Bitten by The Bug site.
Hope your day is filled with Sunshine & Rainbows and LOTS of Creativity!!
