Photo Album

I did not make this photo mom did :) It holds 100 4x6 photos and is completely customizable!

She made this for me to give as a gift to a family Packer fan. She has done so many different styles\themes from weddings, graduations, babies, holidays\seasons, everyday, etc. She has also done different size albums as well. Each one is truly OOAK because she refuses to make the same one twice, unless specifically asked.

I'm trying to get her product out there because she is doing an arts and crafts show in September and would LOVE to open her own Etsy shop. In fact, keep an eye on my Etsy shop because I will be listing some of her albums for a trial run in the near future!

Thank You Card

With an upcoming baby shower, I wanted to make my own thank you notes. I recently bought some block 'thank you' stamps and used the cards and paper I had on hand. For some reason, I did not want to go with a baby theme, or even the theme of the shower (rubber duckies). Spring is on the way and I thought some nice bright colors would be fun to look at.

I cut the scallop shape from my cricut (accent essentials)on white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in black. Before I attached the scallop to the card, I thought it looked a little blah, so I colored the scallop with some of the colors that are in the card itself. With this one, I used three colors, but I'm thinking for the rest of them, I will just use one color. If I had matching inks or markers, I most likely would have done the stamp in a coordinating color.

I attached the scallop with puffy adhesive dots so it stands out a bit from the card. And because I've been having issues with glues lately, even the tiniest bit causes my paper\cardstock to curl. I have glue that is specifically stated for scrapbooking and papercrafting, too. Anywho. The scallop doesn't stand too far out from the card itself and now that I'm thinking of it, I should probably take a side picture to show the dimension....

The inside has another stamped phrase. Sometimes a completely blank inside can be daunting!

And of course, the back is stamped with my Little Princess 'brand' :)

Here is the one card that is 100% completed. I'll post again when I have them all done, since there are a few different pattern\color styles to the cards :)
