Archivist Mini Album

Hello! I have made a mini album using Prima's Archivist collection.  Such a beautiful collection, and I see myself making more projects.

When making the cover, I was inspired by Prima's Product Picks for October.

Here are some more close ups:

I also have a video if you're interested in seeing the inside:

Christmas Shaker Card

Hello all!  This is my first attempt at making a shaker card.  It really was a lot of fun to make.

It was inspired by the picture for the Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop.
The designer paper is by My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the background with sentiments from the Inside & Out: Holiday stamp set.  The ornament was die cut using the Tag Sale #4 die.  The opening was cut using a Spellbinders circle die.
The main sentiment is from the Stylish Sentiments Holiday stamp set.  I rounded the corners and popped it up.  I also used the Scarlet Jewel Satin ribbon tied in a bow, added some bells and greenery from a Martha Stewart punch.  The sequins I purchased from the local craft store.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

CAS Christmas Card

Getting a head start in making Christmas cards.  I used Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #226: Creating with Stripes as my starting point.

Not having any stripe stamps, I looked hard into my PTI stash.  I found a stamp in the Button Boutique that kind of fit the bill.  Unconventional, but you gotta work with what you've got, right?  I made this relatively simple so I can mass produce and mail for the holidays.

Here are the supplies that I used for this card:
Stamps: (All Papertrey Ink) Button Boutique, Stylish Sentiments: Holiday, Countdown Details, Love Lives Here: Holiday
Dies: Wonderful Words: Holiday Die Collection.
Ink: Memento
Paper: Paper Studio Heavy Weight Holiday Cardstock

This card is also for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Clean and Simple Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
