Mini Album Monday: Exploding Envelope

| exploding envelope, Graphic 45, Heart Broken Designs, reverse mini album

Hi Everyone!

Today’s Mini Album Monday is an Exploding Envelope or Reverse Mini Album! The inspiration for this project was a challenge that Ana over at Lace Boutique 1 on YouTube is doing.

This Exploding Envelope/Reverse Mini Album is so cute. I love how the pages are not attached like in a regular mini album and there is so much room! I am sure I will stuff it even more once I start adding pictures and journaling!

The paper I used was the Couture Collection from Graphic 45 and it is just gorgeous. The size is 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 and there are 5 tags and two envelopes.

Mother’s Day Cards with La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit

| CTMH, greeting card, La Vie En Rose, mother's day, Z-card

Hi Everyone,

Today’s project share are two Mother’s Day cards that I created with the La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit. The stamp I used was My Mother.

I really love this scrabooking kit. The paper is gorgeous and very versatile plus it comes with a bunch of goodies.

20160406_125103359_ios
 
My first card is a Z card and is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches when closed and a full 15 inches when open. 

I used the “Mum” my Mother Stamp but there is also a “Mom” stamp as well. I added some La Vie En Rose Flair on the front as well as a little black with gold ribbon.

The side of the card shows how dimensional it is and because it folds up so nicely and flat it is easy to mail. 
 
I added a stamped message on the inside but there is additional space on the inside for a special message or even to add a picture.

The second card I created is an A2 size card (4 in x 5 1/2).

This time on the front I created a bit of interest by using the designer paper in a different way by matting each strip. I also added the little gold hearts that are so cute.

I left the inside blank on this card so there is lots of room for a special message.

Craft Your Passion Design Team Project- Blushing Bride Card

| Alicia Bel, Close To My Heart, craft your passion, Heart Broken Designs

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is my Design Team project for Craft Your Passion Challenge #308. 

Our sponsor this week is Alicia Bel and the image I selected was Emily (Zombie). 

This is my Blushing Bride Card! 

20160417_144337476_ios

I love this image! I didn’t color her up like a zombie even though I love zombie movies…but I am going to be coloring her up like a zombie the next time I use this image. The image is great and reminds me of a Tim Burton movie. 

20160417_144416961_ios

The paper collection I used was DCWV Happy Day stack. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noirs and added lace, doily, fabric covered buttons and a small bow for embellishment. 
20160417_144409890_ios

 
I did pop dot both my image and the second layer for more dimension. And of course I added some Wink of Stella and stickles for bling. 
 
The card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches and I left the inside blank so lots of room for a message.

Mini Album Monday- Wallet Mini Album

| Uncategorized

Hi Everyone!

SO excited to be back with Mini Album Monday!! Today’s mini is a 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 wallet mini album.

This mini would make a great gift especially if you fill it with pictures and memories. 

The paper I used is the CTMH Charlotte Workshops Your Way Kit. These are actually the remaining pieces I had after I created another mini album. 


I love this paper pack and am going to get one more before the new catalog comes out on 5/1. You need to get one also. This paper and the embellishments that come with it in Workshops Your Way are fantastic. I have made 2 mini albums and a few cards with it. 

This mini even though it is small has 4 spaces for 4×6 photos and 4 spaces for 3×4 photos. It is adorable!

Here is a video that will show you more of this wallet mini:

EASY PEASEY SCRAPBOOKING SERIES- PROJECT TWO: PICTURE MY LIFE

| Uncategorized

Hi Everyone!

Today is Project 2 of the Easy Peasey Scrapbooking Series and today we are scrapping with Picture My Life! 

I know you have probably seen the big box at your local store that you can buy with a ton of cards but Picture My Life is so much better. 

Why, you ask? Well, first the quality is fantastic but not only are each of the cards adorable you also don’t get a bunch of duplicates like you would in the big box. 

Scrapbooking is so much easier when have such a great selection to choose from and don’t have to worry about duplicate layouts!


This scrapbook is going to be for my sister. She lives in France right now and just had my sweet little niece in January. I am going to build pages throughout the year and mail them to her so she can add them to her scrapbook! Fun, right!

The supplies I used today are-
Memory Protectors Design 3- Z1950 $9.95 for 10
Memory Protectors Design 4- Z1951 $9.95 for 10
Memory Protectors Design 5- Z1952 $9.95 for 10

Picture My Life– Our Story Scrapbooking Program- Z3195 $8.95 for 20 (4×6) cards and 36 (3×4) cards.


Here is the tutorial for my Picture My Life Project:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project!
