Here is the Youtube video for the Mini Album for the Nativity Project. The video will give you all the dimensions, etc. you will need to create your album. There is no written tutorial, though I may write one in the future. Enjoy!
I have added more of the Nativity Kits to my website. These kits do NOT include the Fabscraps paper and other materials needed for the Mini Album.The price has been revised for these latest kits to reflect the reduced materials. Everything needed to create the stable and the Nativity figures IS included.
We will be starting the Nativity project during Friday’s show instead of Wednesday. This will allow people to receive their kits and for me to get the pattern done. We will still finish on the same date as I added an additional day. The pattern is about 3/4 done, but I still need to finish the Wisemen. I will have more photo’s of the Angel and other elements later this evening. The pattern SHOULD be up on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. Keep on eye on the Kit and Pattern Status and the Ustream Schedule tabs for any further changes.
Both the Silent Night Nativity and the November Birdhouse – Home Tweet Home patterns are up on my website. The patterns for both projects have been emailed or released to all who order kits. Only two more videos….Double Envelope and Home Tweet Home and I will be up to date!!! Yippee Skippee!
First, thank you all for your kind comments and positive feedback on the Nativity project both here on the blog and on Facebook. I am so glad you all are loving the project as much as I do! The kits have sold out but I have been in contact with Bo Bunny and have another batch of the papers on the way. The new batch of kits will be for the stable and nativity only. The stable can hold either a mini album or it can store all of the Nativity elements.The Fabscraps paper I am using for the mini album is sold out . The newest batch will be reduced accordingly in price. These latest kits will be available to ship sometime mid-week next week. The Mini Album for the project is slated as one of my 12 projects of Christmas so will be a free project video and download.
I am sending the Nativity pattern off to my web person in just a few minutes. My website will be down for a few hours this afternoon for routine security updates and to fix a few glitches. She will be taking it off line at about 3pm PST and it will be down for up to 3 hours (but most likely less). If possible, the pattern will be available before it goes off line but it will definitely be available afterwards. The November Birdhouse pattern will be done by tonight and I will be emailing to those who order the entire set. It should be up on the Website tonight as well.
I teach locally on Saturday so my Ustream class for Saturday will be an evening class. (I will be ready to sleep in on Sunday!) The remaining Saturday Ustream classes before Christmas will be back to my regular 9am.
Also, all kits (including sale kits) should be on their way to you by tomorrow or Saturday.
The Nativity is finished…..just needs a couple of finishing touches. The pattern will be finished tonight and will be available on my website tomorrow. I am ecstatic with how this has come out!!!
The October Bird Abode is now live over on Youtube. The November bird house pattern is on the docket for tomorrow and should be available by late Thursday or early Friday. The December pattern will be done early next week – a week EARLY for a change!!
See you Friday for the start of the Nativity!
I spent the day prepping videos (5 hours alone for one 45 minute video!) and working on the Nativity project. Some days the hours tick by as fast as minutes! I need the time tomorrow to finish the videos and the Nativity pattern so I am going to cancel the Ustream class tomorrow. So sorry for the late notice!
Got the critters all done….here is the camel. Love how he came out!!!

Have an awesome week!
…the October Bird Abode pattern is finally done and off to be uploaded. It should be up sometime Friday morning. The video will go up when the pattern is available. The pattern will be emailed out to all who ordered kits to the email you have on my website. Thank you all for your patience! November will go up over the weekend and then I will be finally caught up and on track with all of the upcoming projects. Here is a peek at the owl pages….
As long as I survive the time between now and Thanksgiving…..it’s going to be an INSANE two weeks! The Wee Village kits are shipping, The last of the Wizard House stuff arrives on Monday and then those ship put. The Nativity Paper arrives on Saturday, so they go out next week as well. The schedule may juggle around a bit (watch the schedule button here on the blog for details) but the project completion dates will remain the same.
After Thanksgiving, the insanity is over and it will settle into an easier schedule and I can take a breath…just in time for the CHA push….. Aauuuggghhh!
I just keep swimming!
I love when a project is coming out better than I envisioned it….. Here is a sneak peek at Mary and Joseph from the upcoming Nativity project. Tomorrow I hopt to work on the 3D manger….
I had originally thought that this project would be out of solid card stock….until I started playing with patterned paper for it…MUCH better. This makes the kits a bit more expensive but I feel the difference will be soooo much more effective . This project involves some detail cutting , but the final look is worth the effort. I have had so much fun drawing and designing these images. As I have worked on these, I wish I had started sooner, as they will make great stamps. A bit too late for this year but I will pursue having them made for next year. The kits for this project will go up in two batches on Wednesday, Nov 13: the first batch at 10 am PST and the second batch at 7pm PDT. There will be a pattern with templates available before the Ustream class begins on November 29. The pattern will give suggested colors, etc. for the project, but I won’t be listing out the specific papers used as that is the benefit reserved for those who purchase the kits.
On tomorrow’s Ustream show, we will continue with the Back Flip Album.
The Nativity Sample is still in process. I will continue to work on it tomorrow…
Today I have been working on a backlog of emails, packing new kits, get things ready for shipping….and I just wanted to work on this project! LOL! Kits will go up on wednesday instead of Tuesday as planned…
Thank you to all of the men and women who have served or currently serve in our Armed Forces. Thank you as well to the families who make sacrifices while their loved ones are in harms way. There is no way to repay the debt we owe you…we can only give you a heartfelt THANK YOU!
I am proud to say my father served 23 years in the US Air Force and my paternal grandfather fought with honor in WW1. I miss them both…
On Saturday, we had a fun Ustream class making the ToothFairy House as an Elf house….the Tooth Fairy had moved into her new digs and sold this one to one of Santa’s elves and he was redecorating….or so the story goes….
I was able to secure the needed products for a small number of kits. I will have them up on my blog at 2pm PST today. The kits should be able to ship by weeks end.
Today I am working on the Silent Night Nativity project and will have a sneak peek by tonight. The kits will be going up tomorrow and are expected to ship next week. the Ustream class will begin on the day after Thanksgiving (Nov 29).
