Baby Boy Mini Album

I am so completely addicted to these little mini albums!! Seriously, I love them and cannot stop making them. See here is an everyday one and I have one for an older boy that I am planning on having up on the blog soon, I promise. Today, however, I am going to show you one that I made for a baby boy's first years.

This lovely album uses the Bundle of Joy Paper line from Echo Park (plus a few things from my stash sprinkled in.) I received one of these from the original designer, over at My Sister Scrapper, and I loved it because I can keep up with my first year memories. Yes, even though I design everyday I still have trouble keeping those scrapbooks updated.

To get the full affect of this beautiful album I made a video. So sit back, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy.

Didn't you just love that paper line and the sturdy design of the album. We use chipboard for the covers and I can't get over all the flips, flaps, tags, and pockets!! I am still working out the kinks of video-ography (is that even a word?!!) but it's getting so much closer!! :)

If you loved that album as much as I do then make sure to connect with me I always have fun and exciting things going on and I love to post projects, tips, and tutorials so trust me following along is totally worth it.

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Monday.

Live it Up! Happy Birthday Card

I went through a whole "no buy July" and while it was nice and very thrifty, I have since been dying to get my hands on some new paper.. I mean who doesn't Love, need, desire new paper. So off I went, to shop around for paper, when all of a sudden I came across this lovely paper pack called "Birthday Wishes" from Echo Park. By the way, I love Echo Park and this really fun paper line.

So everything on this card (except the gems) came from the paper pack. This pack was tailored for a boy's birthday but as you can see it can be used for anyone's birthday. 

The inspiration for this card came from a Split Coast Stampers sketch challenge that looks something like this.

Christmas Wishes Holiday Card

Today's card came together in no time flat because I used a kit to piece it all together. I saw this paper line and knew that I just had to have it to start the Holiday Season out just right. The paper line I am talking about is called Carta Bella Collection Kit - Christmas Wonderland and it's so pretty and so much fun to work with.

Carta Bella - Christmas Wonderland Collection - 12 x 12 Collection Kit

I really enjoyed the classic red and green, almost rustic/vintage, theme that this line goes with so I figured I would give it a try. Then when I got it I immediately pulled out the paper from today's card and got to work.

I absolutely love how that blue ties in with the whole card. I'm not going to lie, it was a little hard to see this card passed along to a new sender :) Ahh...bittersweet. Well good thing I bought the whole pack and can bring you more from this beautiful Carta Bella line.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying these last few beautiful days of summer!
