My Creations Board Book Mini Album

This little book of fabulosity documents an afternoon of fun at Coughton Court in the UK. My dear friend Victoria and I spent lots of time in the gardens and grounds as well as inside the beautiful house. We had so much fun playing hide and go seek in between the hedges and down the gravel paths :O)
 I love these hardboard books by CTMH. Instead of opening it in the usual fashion I turned it through 90 degrees and opened it top to bottom. I used the Lucky level 2 paper pack to decorate it. Along with lots of the new Chocolate strip ribbon.
 I added a Milepost star and squared shape to the 2 pages which I had inked on the flat side. The Bling buttons are great for a way of adding sparkle. I also used the Bingo alphabet. I love the grid that is included in the set.
 Here I added the bronze Glitz Gel Glue (okay I can never say this to abbreviated it to 'squidgy stuff' at a class I taught last week lol) to the ridges of the milepost shapes. and on the bottom page I inked the flat side then stamped on it to. I love the fact that both sides are so versatile. 
 Again more milepost shapes and on the bottom page I added a fold out page - you know how I like to make my pages, layouts and mini albums interactive.
 Lots more ribbon :O)
On the last page I added 2 photos but cut them so that they were very narrow - but they worked perfectly with the photo subject.
Hope you like this little book as much as I do :O)

Halloween Mini Album - My Creations Mix n Mingle

I loved the way this little mini album turned out.
The 'Label' paper in the Mischief Level 2 paper pack was just perfect to 
scrapbook the pictures of Elliott - who is also known as Pumpkin due to his beautiful
red hair.
I made an accordian style spine and then added foldout pages for  more areas for photos.

I threaded colonial white ribbon through the ribbon slide

Here I added the bronze Glitz Glitter Gel to the Milepost bracket shape
Hope you like it :O)

Halloween Inspired Mischief My Creations Card Box

Here is my Halloween inspired box of potions which I created for Extravaganza this year.
I love the Mischief Level 2 paper pack and used the 'Label' B&T on the box and on 
the contents. I used the Silver Glitz Gel to decorate the 'Rub-On' cobweb.
 I picked up mini samples from the pharmacy of soap, body lotion, hand sanitizer etc
and then used the paper to cover them.
It made a fun item which is so fun to leave out on the table at this time of year
Hope you like it :O)

Fanfare My Creations Card Box & Cards

Here is another box which I made using the My Creations Card Box and the Fanfare Level 2 paper pack.
I colored the box using Pacifica ink but it felt too dark so I brushed the Pearl paint over the top to soften the color and give a shimmer to the box. It added more interest. 
I added the Cranberry pleated ribbon and then a selection of the blue buttons which I threaded with the
white Embroidery Floss.
 I colored the cork Alphabet Letters with Honey and Pacifica and Cranberry ink and then heat embossed them with the clear embossing powder to really set the color. I used one of the Milepost shapes covered
with the B&T underneath the flower.
The matching cards are from the Originals and Wishes card confidence programs.
Lots of ribbon and ling assortment buttons added more interest.
Hope you like them :O)

My Creations Card Box Album

This is the new My Creations Card Box which I was lucky enough to receive as part of 
my class products for Extravaganza this year.
I decided to make an multi fold album to fit inside it and used the lovely Dreamin' Level 2
paper pack  & stickease, and the Honey Mini Medley accents to decorate it.
I also used C1365 - Unscripted stamp set.
 I inked all of the edges of the box and then added Goldrush cardstock which I had random stamped to the inside of the box.
 I scored 6 x 12 cardstock at 4" and added tabs so that I could form a
concertina fold album which would fold in and out of the box. I also
added an additional tab to the bottom which allowed me to actually
attach it to the inside of the box permanently. Then I added a ribbon 'pull tab' to the top
to make it easier to pull it out.
I added lots of embellishments and stamped images and the new copper Glitz Gel Glue.
 On some of the sections I added fold out sections which allowed me to add
more photos to the album.
The photos are from Christmas last year when my 2 sisters and their families came 
and stayed with us. Great photos and great memories :O)
Hope you like it :O)
