My Top Ten Posts of 2011

Hi Everyone – I hope you are having a wonderful time over the Holiday Season! I have jumped on the Top Ten bandwagon this year and am showing my ten most popular blogposts (by pageviews)from the year.
This has been my most popular post by a factor of 60! This year I am going to post a more detailed tutorial on how I created it.
I made these one afternoon for my mother-in-law and the illustrated tutorial has been really popular.
I created this project after I was selected as a monthly Guest Designer for Little Yellow Bicycle.
One of my favorite projects of the year – part of a large collection of items I created for Echo Park as part of their Fresh Face Design Team.

One of my few non-scrapbook posts but really popular with parents and teachers alike!
Such a fun way to upcycle jars and use scraps of scrapbook paper.
This really simple tutorial using a single sheet of paper has so many potential uses.

Another non-scrapbooking project, this idea is perfect for using up old scraps of crayons.
This project was a labor of love but so worth it!

This was so much fun to work on but I decided the pressure of completing it every day was too much so we gave it away in the shop as a prize at our Christmas event!

One of my personal favorites of the year was this post below.
I created the items for a lady named Jodi who won a custom card set. When she set she wanted one with a military theme to give to her son who was about to start training, I suggested a mini album and frame instead and she was so thrilled. I got a REAL kick out of that!

I look forward to bringing you some more paper crafting inspiration next year.

I would like to thank everyone who has become a follower this year and
everyone who has left a comment. I love to read them and I try and visit
your blog too! 
Please leave a comment with any questions.
Lowri 🙂

    Lowri, girl, you have some AMAZING talent! I just realized that YOU made that card mini that I have pinned on my board! LOL! I always love seeing what you'll come up with next! I hope 2012 is a good year for you and that you keep rockin' the paper, scissors, glue, and hybrid until it's socks fall off! Cheers, my friend!

    I made a "52 Reasons I Love You" deck for my boyfriend this year. He LOVED it.. plus it was so much fun to do!

    Have a great holiday!

    I of course love the 52 card album; love the patriotic frame, I could make one for my brother on his 3rd tour in Iraq (he's with the State Department so he's still there). I LOVE the folded flowers, I'm making some of those for myself (if I can), but I'm going to use the Internal Revenue Code — have I mentioned I'm a tax lawyer? 🙂

    Yes I see that Valentine's Deck of card all over the place on Pinterest which is awesome. I really like that project too but my faves are your crayon tutorials- can't wait till Lola is old enough to make those with me. The magnets are fantastic too- they made me go out and get some of those Little Yellow Bicycle papers because I finally saw how bright they were. Happy New Year to you and yours!!
