Gold Mini Album using Stampin' Up! Project Life Collection.

I have been having the best time making this Stampin' Up! Project Life mini album for my gorgeous friend. Last weekend we had a weekend of merriment at Rewind Scone where we had a great time, despite, or because of, the raining on the Saturday.

I have used the mini album I made a while ago and using an app on my iPad I sized my photos then printed them out.  You can check out my previous blog showing the making of the album here.

This is gold velum from Stampin' Up!, a Tim Holtz binder ring and washi tape from Stampin' Up! also.

The wood element is from Stampin' Up!

My friend loves Snoopy so characters from Snoopy have been included throughout.  Here I have used the Itty Bitty stamps.

This is a Unity Company stamp.

I love these pages.

These are my favourite pages, lots of layering and embellishments using stickers from the additional pack which goes with this PL collection.

I love the umbrella stamp.  This is from Stampin' Up! too.

Tim Holtz Ideology stickers and # stamps from a Stampers Anonymous have been used throughout.

What's great about Stampin' Up! is that everything coordinates so I have used the same colour ink as the opposite page for stamping.

You can see here how I have used the Ticket Builder punch to make the tabs.  I used Stampin' Up! kraft paper, which is extremely durable so minimises the risk of it tearing as people turn the pages.

Yip it rained, a lot!

The Boomtown Rats were amazing!

My mate is a huge Hall & Oats fan so was in her element watching them.

I have loved making and embellishing this album.  I hope my friend loves it as much as I have enjoyed making it.

I hope you are all having a great summer break.  Take care of you.

Turquoise Summer Notelets.

I have been making some Notelets this weekend inspired by another card I saw on Instagram and have altered the idea and made my own versions.

The stamps are A Mixed Bunch and I used the coordinating punch to punch them out.  I love having all the goodies to make life simpler.  I also used Banner Blast and coordinating punch to make the wee banners.

Tonight I made some boxes for them using The Crafty Owls box builder.  You can find this on the tabs above this blog.  She is so clever!

I added some daffodil delight and silver ribbon, flowers using Petite Petals and yes the coordinating punch, and bling from my stash with adhesive dots.  I am loving turquoise right now, it is so summery.

Hope you all have a fab week.  Take care of you.

Gorgeous Mini Album

This is a new mini album I have made using Couture paper collection from Graphic 45, a Tim Holtz binder and easel using the easel die from his Ideology collection.

I have used my Sizzix Eclips to cut this frame then embossed it using an embossing folder.  

The background paper is from DCWV the Alphabet Stack.

The vellum is from Stampin' Up!

Lots of fussy cutting and glossing accents.

I love making these frames.  Family photos look amazing in them.
