My Mind's Eye Album

Love how this came out! This is for my daughter who "rushed" a sorority this fall, and all her pics up till this time. Tons of scrapbook pages and pics inside! Love the wooden frame on the front but it took tons of paint to cover it. FYI:  Use primer first next time!  Supplies: Bicycle is a Cricut cut. Prima Marketing flowers, and a Simple Stories Sn@p album.  Wooden frame from Michaels wood department painted with turquois acrylic paint in my stash.  My Mind's Eye Collectable collection, Notable series. Used label and chipboard stickers, and many papers including: Cute, Wonder, Silly, and many more.

I have linked up with a challenge on Red Carpet Studio, because my mini album, like The Breakfast Club movie depicts, is a warm, insightful, and very funny look into the inner life of my teenage daughter. Enjoy. Red Carpet Studio Challenge

Scraptique Winter Snowflake Layout

 After fussy cutting all of these gorgeous snowflakes out, I added ink and Splash of Color gold spray. I used several different colors of purples including, Brilliance Pearlescent Purple, Color Box Warm Violet, and Orchid Pastel to ink the edges of the pages, and each flake.  The beautiful papers are Scraptique's and is actually found here Winter Wonderland collection layout kit.  It makes a gorgeous winter layout that really captures the beautiful snowflakes and details of the papers.  I used 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives to pop each layer of snowflake up, as well. I am so happy with it!

Embossed Christmas cards

Well, I finished all my Christmas cards finally! It took me a long time, and I really enjoyed making them, but I HAVE to get started on next years way more earlier than I started this year!!! It always takes me way longer than I realize. Hope you love the embossing!! I was so happy to say I actually went through an entire bottle of silver and gold embossing powder, and an ink pad.  I love using up my stash! It makes it so much more fun to go shopping for more!!! As much ribbon as I used....I still have a TON
more Christmas ribbon, and others to make next years. Oh well, more reason to craft more, right?
