Let's Party Mini } Nikki Sivils It's Your Day

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by today. So as many of you who follow my blog know I LOVE Nikki Sivils imagine my excitement when I saw the post I had been waiting all year for....her DT call!!!! (you can check out Nikki's DT call HERE) After reading through the post probably 5 times so that I didn't miss a thing I knew I had to create something new for this one. I had this project planned but had not started it yet, so I thought well there is no better time than now to start.

I created this fun mini album that is going to be a class at The Scrapbooking Studio in February to help celebrate the store being open for 2 years. I have everything pulled for the class for probably 3 weeks now :) Ok so enough babbling with excitement how about I just show you the project.

Here is the view of the cover. I created this album using different shapes from the Accu-Cut machine at the store. I love to create mini albums especially using different shapes.

After applying all the base paper to the album it was time to embellish it. I love all of the elements that you can cut and use from the It's Your Day Line. I also inked all of the edges using Ranger Distress Ink (vintage photo)

Here are the inside pages along with some photos of the fun little tags I created for all of the pockets in this album.

Supplies used: Nikki Sivils It's You Day Line, burlap buttons, corduroy brads; Ranger Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), Bazzill ribbon, Maya Road Stick Pin, Xyron Adhesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you have enjoyed this fun little birthday mini album. Don't forget to stop by Nikki's Blog and get all the info you need to submit for the DT call, and good luck :)

A little Echo Park Christmas Fun

Hey there everyone, well i've been working on another mini album. This time I used the Season's Greetings from Echo Park. Love the vintage feel to this line, and the chipboard embellies and brads are fabulous!! You will find lots of photo mats and hidden pockets in this album as well.

So lets start with the cover. I used some Tim Holzt goodies, along with his new ornament die. One of the ornaments is covered with crackel paint.

Now for the inside pages. They are all ready to go for the pictures we will take this Chrsitmas.

Here is the inside of the last page. Perfect for a picture in the center, then a little journaling on the tag on the inside pocket.

US } Teresa Collins & Xyron

Good Monday morning to you all. I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. Today i'm sharing a mini album with you created using the new Teresa Collins Carolina Breeze & lots of Xyron adhesive!!! Thanks to The Scrapbooking Studio for carrying all of these FABULOUS goodies to create this beauty!!

There a 6 pages in this album along with 2 half pocket pages. Using my Xyron Creatopia made this so much quicker to adhere the base pages down, so I could get to the fun parts of decorating :)

As you will see in the pictures, there are lots of hidden ares for journaling to go along with places to slide in photo mats. I loved making this album with all of the fun little tabs. I used the Stampin' Up punch to create the tabs, which fit perfectly in my Xyron 150 sticker maker. I know those tabs are NOT coming undone!!

Here are a few more picture of the inside of this album.

Some of the yummy embellies I used on this one are from Teresa Collins: Notations Tags, Taylor's Clips, Amber's Jewels, Brooke's Flower. From Prima I used a crystal swirl, My Mind's Eye Sunshire Forever Brads from the Lost & Found 2. Xyron Creatopia, 150 sticker maker, and the mega runner.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

PDCC 106 } Birthday Tag

Hello everyone, today i'm sharing my creation for The Play Date Cafe challenge 106. The colors are so fun for this one....gray, yellow, and pink.

This weeks sponsor for the challenge is Practicing Creativity.

For this challenge I created a birthday tag. You can use it to tie on a gift bag, or simply place it on the front of a card. On the background of this tag I used the Summer line from Nikki Sivils, then stamped the banners across the paper. For all of the fun little embellies I also used another line from Nikki called It's Your Day (one of my favorite lines)!!! I placed some fun little glitter candy dots from Pebbles around the tag and also some fun little dots from Kaiser Craft. To place these dots on my tag I used the Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect to make this job super easy.

Well that's it for today, thanks for stopping by. Make sure you head over to The Play Date Cafe and enter your take on this weeks fabulous color challenge.
