WOOOOHOOOO - I have sold enough 'Cards for Kisses' to pay for another surgery for Operation Smile. Thanks to everyone who has bought cards from me. This is the 4th operation we have paid for - the 4th child whose life will be changed for ever by this surgery.

I decided to make one of these albums for my 2 friends who also eanred the NZ trip - plus one each for the other 4 ladies who earned both trips plus one for me and one for Jeanette Lynton as she gives us these amazing trips through CTMH.
I used the new Veranda level 2 paper packs and matching stickease along with colonial white and cocoa ribbons, antique copper mini medley and the new Spring blossom paper flowers.
On this 1st page I added a lift up flap - this way we can add a photo and journalling on the 2 inside panels.
I used Sparkles on this page for added bling.
Here I used the reverse side of the paper for a different look and added the stickease photo corners and ribbon for texture.
The left hand page has a fold out section for more photos
Here it is opened :O)
Here are the last 2 pages of the book and here I added the stickease to the center of the flower :O)Hope you like it :O)

We are using the Topstitch paper - there are 4 paper choices - I am just showing the stripe paper.We are ink distressing the edges of the card base.
Here are 3 more examples using this stamp set - I tried to us some different color combinations - not just the standard pink.So the top 6x6 card uses the You Rock paper, the right hand card uses black cardstock and spring iris cardstock - perfect for a wedding card. And the bottom 3x6 cad uses chocolate cardstock and the topstitch paper again.

Here are the contects of the Topstich basic kit.
And these are the upgrades - the Dinensional Element hearts, basic embroidery floss and sparkles :O)
The cards on the left are made with the basic kit and the cards on the right add the upgrades
Again the basic cards are on the left and the upgrades on the right. I have to say that this kit is so cute.
The paper is so fun and I love the accompanying stamp set. A set which can be used all year long.
Hope you like it too :O)
