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:

Haunted Bird House

Last week on BBTB2 they had a challenge to use make a haunted house.  Well, not to many people entered so they are extending it AND offering blog candy!  And this week Polkadoodles is asking us make something spooky.

I decided to participate, but did not want to make your typical haunted house.  So, I made a spooky bird house instead.

The bird house is cut from the Stretch Your Imagination cart, the birds from the Home Decor cart, the witches hat and cape form Paper Doll Dress Up and I can’t figure out which cart I used for the moon and stars.

I used a web stamp stamped with white ink and embossed with sparkle powder.  The Moon was sent through my Xyron wrong side up and sprinkled with Martha Stewart Glitter.  Crystal Stickles was used on the stars and I used a stardust pen on the hat, cape and bird house.

I hope you like it!

Witches Head treat box

I found this super cute template at Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  I’ve been meaning to make it for a Halloween decoration and this weeks Polka Doodle challenge gave me the excuse.  We were to make something that contained something hidden.  The witches hat opens up to put a treat in!  I  love it!  I used Bazzill paper, a spider web stamp from Stampabilities, ribbon from Joann’s, pattern paper for the buckle from Cloud 9 Design and the fuzzy ribbon on the hat came in a Bo Bunny Halloween Kit.  I used my Cricut to cut the circles and scallop for the hat, Plantin Schoolbook and Home Accents carts.  Unfortunately, I forgot to draw the face on until after I put together the box, so it doesn’t look the best.  But she’s a witch so I guess she’s not supposed to be stunning, right?!

Thanks for looking!

I appreciate your comments and feedback!
