'Dream Pop' Cricut Flower Mini Album

This paper and cardstock  is so much fun  - it screams Summer and Popsicles and Sunshine and I LOVE IT !!!
The fun patterned paper and glossy embossed cardstocks have been specifically designed for National Scrapbooking Month and just for this one collection 
- you can't help but smile when you look at it :O).

There is NO STAMPING on this fun mini album which I designed - just paper, cardstock and embellishments. I saw a fabulous butterfly shaped album designed by the super creative Wendy Coffman over at Stamping Rules and loved it so much that I decided to make one of my own.
I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cruict cartridge to cut the page shapes out - I cut them at 11 1/2" inches and the overlays were cut at either 11 1/4" or 10 1/2".
 I cut flowers from 2 of the cardstock colors for the front to cover the words on this panel.
The words My Favorite were from the Zip Strip. 
I added the Black and Grey Glitter Paper to accent the pages and to form the base of the middle pages.  I gathered the Slate Polka Dot ribbon to cover the spine of the pages and to tie the album together.
 I added Z1754 Black & Grey sparkles in the center of the flowers
 I also added Z1807 Pink Glitter Gems.
 The words Beautiful were cut from the side of one of the sheets of paper.
On the layout above I cut the right hand page from the left hand side of the sheet of patterned paper and the left hand page from the right hand side of the paper.
 I cut the flowers out of another sheet of paper.
 Another Zip Strip saying was used on the page above.

The collection includes 12 sheets of fun double sided patterned B&T Paper and 12 sheets of embossed cardstock (embossed one side and plain the other) and is valued at $19.95.
You can receive one packet of Dream Pop  for just $10* for every $35 you spend.
Hostesses will receive one paper packet free with a qualifying May Gathering sales total of $400 or more and is available between May 1st-31 2013 only - while supplies last.

(* Shipping/handling and tax apply. Not available for purchase at full retail price).
