Meow Mini Album

I've been on an album/folio kick lately.  Here's one of my latest.  The paper line(s) I used are from Bella Blvd and are called "Riley" and "Rover".

There are 6 interior pages.  Each one has a flap that opens up for more photo space.

This was really fun to create.  I used a bunch of cuts from the Silhouette store to decorate the inside of the album.  

If you're interested in seeing the entire album, there's a video over on Youtube.

Roses & Pearls

It's time again for another challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.  This week our OPTIONAL twist is to include June's flower and/or gemstone (roses and pearls) in your design. 

We have a couple of great sponsors this week , and I was able to work with the lovely Crafty Secrets designs.  The image on my card was from the Flowers printable sheet

I used Pink Paislee "London Market" papers.  All of the papers were edged in Black Soot Distress Ink.   A bit of cardboard (rubbed with some gesso), a paper doily, pearls, and lace were from my stash.

Be sure to stop by to visit us at 613 Avenue Create, and check out the gorgeous things my teamies have created.

All of the details of the products I used, will be in the July/August issue of the magazine.

Loved more than you know

When I made my last wall hanging, I had shown a photo to a coworker who said it reminded her of her daughter.  She has two daughters at home, so, I gave her the first wall hanging and made this one for the other daughter.  This daughter apparently loves to talk and refers to herself as a social butterfly, so the butterflies that I punched from the dictionary paper have words just for her.

I used the "Fairy Magic" stamp from All Dressed Up Stamps.  I created the word art on my computer.  The background paper is from Authentique, and the key and heart shaped padlock are from Michael's.  Everything else is the same materials as were used in the previous wall hanging - Prima stencil; Shimmerz Sprays and Dazzlerz (I think stenciling with this shiny dimensional paste is my new favorite thing ever!); buttons, flowers, pearls, and lace from my stash.
