Papertrey Ink May 2014 Blog Hop

I made a card for my niece who turned 1 this month.

The papers and stickers to spell out her name are from Prima.  The stamp set is from Papertrey Ink:  Birthday Style and Big Birthday Wishes.  Added flowers, satin ribbon, and some crochet trim to complete the card.  The inspiration from the Papertrey Ink blog is to use Aqua and Melon:

Mother's Day 2014

Happy Mother's Day!  I made a card for my mom last week so I can mail it out to her.  I used one of my favorite Graphic 45 paper collection:  A Ladies Diary.  The banner tag, doily, and stamped/die cut flower are made from Papertrey Ink. 

I stamped the inside as well and added a border sticker.

I used Sketch#98 from Cardabilities:

Prima Wedding Mini Album

Happy National Scrapbook Day!  I'd like to share a project I've been working on using some Accucut dies.  It's a mini album using the Prima Something Blue collection.  It has 6 pages made of medium weight chipboard. 

For the cover, I used a 3x4 ATC card, wood icon piece of the wedding couple, chipboard piece below and behind the flowers, flowers from the collection, and a Graphic 45 ornate key.

The pages normally measure 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, but some of the pages were shortened lengthwise to create a "side step" effect so you can have a peek of all of the pages at once. 

I also used an Accucut circle die to create a "peek through" window to the next page.  When creating the pages, I plan what the circle will show when you turn the page.  The page behind also creates a window, and I wanted to make that nice to peek through too.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  Happy creating!!
