Acrylic Album

I'm fascinated with Acrylic Albums. It is a whole new scrapbooking challenge because you can see through one page to the next and to the next. It's lots of fun to plan and assemble.

The star of this album is my niece Ellie during her 1st year! Isn't she adorable? She's a very spirited young girl and keeps her mom and dad on their toes each and every day!

Here's the front cover. Notice the inside pages from this view - they contain tags, stamping, flowers, ribbon, and floss. The whole album is bound with Zutter's Bind-it-All and binding wire. (Did you know you can purchase the Bind-It-All for half price when you have a $100 workshop, a book party, or an order?)

Here the album is opened to a couple of the inside pages. The designer paper, cardstock, and tags are from the Lilly Anna Collection. The photos serve two purposes. First, of course, is to show off my niece! And, the second, is to serve as a pocket for the journaling tag that is tucked into it from either the top or the side.

Her name which is stamped with the FancyBet Alphabet . I used Moonlight White Brilliance Ink. Brilliance inks are perfect for stamping on vellum, acetate, photo paper, acrylic, and more.

And one more picture of Ellie -like I said, she's adorable!!

Little Cupcake Matchbook Card

This Little Cupcake stamp set from The Angel Company is absolutely adorable with its cupcakes, cakes, candles, and birthday greetings! The Matchbook Card is made with the Miss Moxie paper collection.
The finer touches were created with scalloped punches, Tombow Gel Pen, Stickles, and Aqua Crayons.

A Matchbook Card is made from a 4 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. Score it at 4 5/8 and 10 inches. The Scor-Pal is great for this! The one inch end of the cardstock forms the flap to tuck the card top into!

Finish off the flap by setting some jumbo eyelets and threading ribbon through them!

Life is Good with Mimi

I went to a Cricut Swarm this past weekend and had a blast! Here's my first creation using vinyl and the Cricut. The cartridge is Graphically Speaking. The paper and ribbon are from The Angel Company's Mimi Paper Collection! I am definitely hooked.
Does it need any bling or other embellishments?
