Bridal Shower Mini Album

This is the most ambitious project I have done (although stayed tuned for a future entry).  My sister-in-law is getting married (you may remember I recently posted the invitations I made for her) and I decided to make an album of her bridal shower for her.  I am not a scrapbooker.  Cards are what I spend most of my time working on.  That being said – I really had fun putting this together!  It took a long time but I want to make another one.

Materials:

1)Shaped chipboard album (can’t remember who it’s by)

2)Cricut

3)Gypsy Font, Lyrical letters, Home decor, Plantin Schoolbook and Sweet Treats cartridges

4)Stampin’ UP Stamps, punches, inks, paper and pearls

5)K & Co Best of Barbara Walton paper, Bazzil Bling paper, My Minds Eye Lost and Found Collection, Making Memories Je t’adore collection, open stock paper, Bo Bunny Double Dot

I thought this paper was perfect for listing the attendees of the shower and maybe the gift they gave:

Purple Music card

As I mentioned in my previous post, it is my sisters birthdays this month.  My middle sister is very different from my youngest sister and myself (not always in a bad way ;)).  She loves purple and white (a holdover from sorority life) and she is more modern in her tastes than I am.  So coming up with an appropriate card design could have been challenging.  Thankfully, Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge came to my rescue. 

I thought this unique design would be perfect.  Of course, I used purple and white (Stampin Up Concord Grape paper and ink).  I decided to use the WM Musical Backgrounds stamps.  First, I stamped the grape paper with the musical bars in coordinating ink. Then I used the treble clef and bass clef to make a random design on the white paper with the grape ink.  Next, I cut off a corner and layered it over the concord grape so the music bars are visible.  The tag was made using Nesties fancy tags.  After being stamped with a Stampin Up tiny sentiment, I sponged over the tag with the concord ink and added a little bling (what girl doesn’t like bling).  Then I tied some embroidery floss around it on one side, and popped it up.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking, your comments are always appreciated.

Bountiful Basket

Both of my “little” sisters birthdays are this month, right after Thanksgiving.  I decided to use the Stamping 411 sketch this week as my template for my youngest sister’s card.

I used patterned paper and colored paper from K and i.  Ink and markers from Stampin Up and Copic.  Stamps from Waltzing Mouse and Inkadinkado.  Ribbon from JoAnn’s and the diecuts are Nesties.

Hope you like it.  I was very productive yesterday so I will be back with more soon.

Thanks for stopping by, comments are always appreciated!

Birthday card

This card was made for my Mother’s birthday on Saturday.  I used Peachy Keen Stamp – Natalie.  Also, Stamp’n Up stamp – bee happy.  It’s hard to see, but I used faux stitching around the “Natalie” frame.  The lace punch is by Martha Stewart.  I utilized a discarded thread to hang the tag from the ribbon and button.  The tag cut is from Tags, Bags, boxes and more cart.  The paper is from The Best of K & Company.

Hope you like it!
