Congratulations Graduates!

Congratulations Graduates!
Here's another project I was working on for my co-worker's niece. Her main colors were burgundy, white and black.  The High School stack by Die Cut With A View was the perfect choice to compliment the pages in this 6x6 mini album.  This is a first....Acetate sheets were added to the front and back. I really like the look of it. It's the next best thing to acrylic!
Can't you see the acetate paper on the left?  I used her invitation which has her photo on the inside.

Notice the Sizzix film strip die? So proud I'm not letting my tools collect dust.  On the right is an open heart page to place photos.  The balloons are from Jolee that I've had for years...and I mean years. lol

Notice my Sizzix camera die? A brad was added to the locker so it would look like a combination lock.  It also opens for photos.
This is the back page.  The stack has lots of cute pages.   See the acetate paper on the right?  Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak.
My co-worker was pleased and so was her niece.  She was the only one with a scrapbook and was envied by all her friends.  As the saying goes, "A scrapbook is a present you open again and again and again!

A Work in Progress

This card was created for a co-workers birthday whose favorite color is green. She wears braids so I thought this cute little Brat Kids image was the perfect one to use. I feel I'm getting better with Spectrum Noir markers especially after viewing a tutorial by Summer Hills-Painters coloring green using Palette Blending, but its still a work in progress.  I used Mojo Monday 291 sketch.

April cards bring May layouts

Although I love creating cards, I miss designing layouts so you will see more this month.  My play niece Morgan just celebrated her Sweet Sixteen.  These were the colors of her party.  This layout was framed and put on a table easel to commemorate her early years.  Look how cute she's blossomed.  Morgan is a focused honor student at Hutchison , who enjoys golf, dance, track and choir.  Her love for debating has inspired her to become an attorney. 

Recipe ingredients:
McGill tab punch
Stampin Up banner punch
Martha Stewart edge punch
Making Memories & Paper Studio brads
Teresa Collins chipboard frame & measuring tape
Prima, Michaels  & Recollection flowers
Recollection bling
