Upcycle Chipboard Mini Album

Upcycle Chipboard Mini Album

Happy Wednesday! Here’s a video of a chipboard mini album I made using Cosmo Cricket’s Upcycle line. I made this mini during my fabulous fun National Scrapbooking Day Crop. I kept the mini album pretty simple. I used a Sizzix XL Scalloped Rectangle die to cut the chipboard.

Sew Nice Card

Sew Nice Card

Hello everyone, I just wanted to share a card I made while at my sister’s house for the weekend. My niece was making all of these amazing cards, so I had to make a card too. Here’s what I came up with.

Sew Nice Card

My card measures 5-1/2 x 4-1/14 inches. I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder on the front then inked the top with vintage photo distress ink. I used the Nifty Fiftes Cricut cartridge to cut the dress form. The spools and buttons were cut out with the Tim Holtz Sewing Room Die.

Love this die, it’s one of my favorites. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket Upcycle line. I added a small clothespin and covered the spools with twine from The Twinery.

Fabulous Weekend

Fabulous Weekend

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I know I did! I spent National Scrapbooking Day with my sister and niece. We had the best time cropping all day long! It was tons of fun. My niece, Jackie, is the person who got me started scrapbooking so I thought I would share a card that she made.

She loves challenges, so she decided to participate in the My Pink Stamper challenge that Robyn was hosting on her blog for National Scrapbooking Day. The challenge was to make a project using kraft paper. Here is what she came up with.

Fabulous Weekend 1
Isn’t it stunning! She cut the bird cage out using the Cricut Serenade cartridge and the little hummingbird is from the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge. The background paper is from October Afternoon Thrift Shoppe Collection.

She used a stamp on the inside of the card and distressed all of the edges. I loved this card so much that she gave it to me! Yea!
