she Loves you more . . .

Just in case you were wondering I did scrap photos this month not just pages for the guys. I'm using
Page Set 1 from my August Counterfeit Kit which had the Stampin' Up Paper I've been hoarding.


I trimmed the paper down to mat on the Kraft cardstock, added the photos across the top.


The digital image is a Dearie Doll which I colored with sharpies.

 
I used the silhouette to cut out the sprinkler and have Zots behind to raise it up. The water drops are punched out with the Stampin' Up mini circle punch.




 Thanks for stopping by.

DIY Mini Album Finished

I finally put my DIY Mini albums together. I stamped a card and a tag for the bag. These are also colored in with Sharpies.



I divided the pages into two piles and made a couple of covers using more left over pattern paper, punched the holes and bound them together.


There is plenty of room for her to add photo's, journal and memorabilia that she wants to. They were delivered today so hopefully she likes them. 

I had a lot of fun putting this one together. I did a lot of stamping and coloring, added quite a few quotes from the Quote Stacks and a lot of pages.

 Thanks for stopping by.

Fold out pages inside my DIY Mini

Here's a few more pictures of my DIY Mini Album.
Instead of cutting down some of the paper and cardstock I scored it and made a couple of fold out pages. The first is scored so that it opens on the left.


I used a paperclip  on the front of the page and a tag is behind it. I used foam tape so the tag slides in and out nicely.


The second one is just a regular pocket with a little mini inside.



I had a piece of DCWV yellow scalloped cardstock that I trimmed to make the bottom even then scored in three places so it would fold up nicely.  I didn't measure just eyeballed it.



I used one of the Friends rub ons on the inside matt.


I did a little bit of stamping on the inside and kept the colors and matts the same color.



It's really simple but adds a nice touch to the mini album.

Stamped and Embossed layout

I'm again using  Page Set 5 from my August Counterfeit Kit  for a double page layout.


The Unity Stamps August Kit of the Month {open your soul} had the perfect flower and butterfly stamps to go with the paper from Colorbok. I stamped on vellum and used white embossing powder twice, fussy cut the images and layered them on each side of the photo mats.


A little bit of ribbon on one of the mats and a journaling spot to finish off the layouts.

DIY Mini Album - a few more pages

I snapped a few more pages from my DIY Mini album.   I made an accordion pocket for right side. I have a folded gusset on the pocket part on the right side to give it a little bit more room.


I have various sizes of pages inside along with an envelope. I've stamped and colored them and used the Quote stack on a page.


I had a scrap piece of acetate that I made a pocket out of,
 
 
then made a quick page to put inside it.  I kind of messed up on this one, I had punched the holes for my binding at the beginning of the month and had to add a piece because of the acetate.
 
 
 
So I have a little bit of a gusset on the outside of the page, but it works. Besides only I know that I messed this one up (now you do too).
