I also used some of the pink and green tiny beads from my stash...I believe they are from a collection by Martha Stewart. Here is a closer look....
The flowers and crystals are from the Heaven Sent collection.
God's Blessings to all of you!

The Tropical Teal card stock (MFT) was embossed with a starry embossing folder and sprayed with Color Bloom Pearl White (Prima). The bottom card stock was embossed with a stripes folder.
Dies-->Vintage Labels Seven (JustRite)
The snow on the tree branches was created by a pen called Snow Marker (Marvy Uchida)...when you use a heat tool on it, the snow puffs up!
Here is a closer look at the pretty Christmas leaf and silver bead branch (stash).

The next card was made for a Power Poppy Challenge...it is one of their digital images. I called it Asters Abuzz....their images are perfect for Copic coloring.
Another card for the same challenges (different week) on Splitcoaststampers (SCS).
And finally...a card for a challenge prior to the Dare to Get Dirty week long challenge on SCS! For this particular challenge: anyone can join in. For the coming challenge that starts on July 30 and lasts for a week with many fun challenges...you must be a member of the SCS Fan Club. Come on and join in!
The purpose for this card was to finally use some products sitting in your "tool shed"...for me it was the circle Flower die and the Bow-it-All bow maker!

The paper used for the album came from Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime.
Next is the front of the album (6x6)...then the spine, the back and the front. For the most part, I followed the directions, however the peach roses were in my stash and I thought they would be pretty on the spine. The outside borders of the album were edged with brown paint and most of the pages and paper decor were also lightly edged with brown paint.
I have a few of the pages to show you (not all of them!)...obviously the blank areas will eventually have photos...some have enough room for a collage of photos.
The next picture shows one of the several pages that have flaps and can be flipped up or over a page.
Here is a picture showing the back of the flap seen above.
The springtime paper made a lovely, sweet album with lots of whimsical fairies. I'm thinking about using it to record an upcoming family birthday event.
If the bows look a little wonky to you, it's because I ran my heat tool over them to scrunch them.
The last picture shows the spine of the album by itself!
But before that....I don't know if you are familiar with Frank Garcia...he is a very talented designer with Prima and has his own mini album club that I recently joined. Sooo...look for some more albums to be coming my way and then your way! You can also find Frank on Facebook.
Bye for now...see you soon with my next project!

Aren't those vintage outfits the cutest?
The Sweet Baby message is a chipboard piece that comes with the paper ensemble and the Pat-A-Cake paper was cut with Spellbinders Labels 28 and mounted on #110 card stock.
The satin ribbon is some of the free ribbon everyone receives with an order from the Ellen Hutson store.
This card will be entered into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #228-229 (Anything Goes).

In the next picture, the card is lying down, so you can more clearly see the bead display....love the micro beads!
The emphasis is on GOLD...the background paper with gold, foil circles is from an old SSS kit and the message was die-cut from gold foil card stock. All dies are from MFT Blueprints #26. The card base is Neenah's Desert Storm.
Below is the inside with my grandson's new age...the numbers are puffy Heidi Swapp stickers colored with a Copic Marker to match the blue beads and a little Glossy Accents. The balloon is cut from SU Glimmer paper.
I'll be entering the card into the latest Seize the Birthday Challenge (Anything Goes) and Word Art Wednesday #228-229.
Enjoy your weekend!

You really don't need to do a whole lot when you have pretty paper (Lemoncraft...House of Roses) and a Prima flower! Agreed?
The sentiment is from a Verve stamp set called New Mercies (one of my favorite verses and most often repeated to myself when I wake up is the one about God's mercies being new every morning from Lamentations). It always erases any heaviness I felt the night before.
Sentiment frame--->Vintage Labels Seven (Justrite)
Leaf swirl---> Petite Vinery (Creative Expressions)
Ink...Antique Linen Distress Ink and Spray Stain (Ranger), Java Bean (Ranger)
I have to show you a picture from my class this morning that I thought was so funny! We were told to bring aprons to class because Mixed media is messy. The woman you see was wrapped in plastic protective covering that is sold in the hospital where she works because she didn't want to buy an apron! We all got a big kick out of this!
This card will be entered in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #224-225.
See you again soon!
