Raining Cats & Dogs

This is my twist on the Garden Journal album by Terri Burnette.   I added my side pockets using a binding strip to make the  pockets larger so the photo matts slide a little
easier.  I used the same hidden hinge binding system to adhere the pages.  For me this is the fastest and easiest way to put an album together. 

I used the Raining Cats & Dogs paper collection by Graphic 45I love the bold colors used in this collection.
The album itself is built using black card 
stock, the patterned paper is inked using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy.  I use this color to distress most of the pages in my mini albums.  It is a favorite. 

 I used the chip board pieces from the collection for my embellishments and did some fussy cutting of the pattern sheets to layer.  The tags are cut a parts from the collection.   

On the cover I colored paper flowers with watercolor markers.  These I hot glued on when dry.  I am pleased with the outcome.  Comments are appreciated.  Enjoy!

Garden Journal

This album was designed by Terri Burnette at Scrappn'Savvy in Spring, Texas, and offered as a class several months ago.  Terri has amazing talent and her albums are always beautiful.  

The cover has hand crafted and hand painted flowers and uses a feather die with dry embossing folder by Tim Holtz.  The enclosure has charms and ribbons.    
The picture does not do justice to the cover.  I am not much on using flowers or a lot of embellishments but this combo really makes the cover pop.  I loved painting the paper flowers,  something new for me.
 The name of the paper collection is Garden Journal by Bo Bunny.  The colors are soft and fresh, worked perfectly for a Spring album.  The frames and die cuts are also by Bo Bunny and are used throughout the
 album.  The majority of the tags are cut from the paper collection as well.   The album has only three pages but many pockets and flaps that will hold a lot of photographs and journal spots.  Magnets are used to keep these flaps closed.  

This album would be perfect for a mini wedding album or a destination album to display on a table.  Enjoy!

Newest Cards

It's been quite awhile since my last post.  Life gets in the way sometimes and posting is put on the back burner.  I have been busy with my StampinUp! business, doctors appointments and two very active grandsons.  There is still some time for card making, album making and classes at my favorite scrap store, Scrappn'Savvy.

The cards shown are my latest ones, they were fun to do but not the easiest cards to make in my humble opinion.  I was going to offer these as a class but after making them decided it would be too stressful.  All products used are Stampin'Up!  Great cards for our military!  Enjoy!
