Mini Album

I got this mini chipboard album at Michaels in the $1.50 bin a few weeks ago. I'm not sure what possessed me to work on this, when I had a million other things to do...but I like how it turned out. I used Cosmo Cricket paper called Honey Pie for all the pages. There are 10 pages in total. I didn't "fruff" it up much so it could be used for a boy or girl album, although maybe the butterflies and flowers might make it more girlie. I am going to try to sell it at the Farmers Market next week! Wish me luck!!!

Anyway, here are a few of the pages.

The other pages I didn't take pictures of are decorated in a similar fashion!!! I traced the shape, cut out the paper, glued it down using Tombow Mono Multi glue, sanded the edges then distressed them with Chocolate Chip ink. I did that for ALL 10 pages!!! Completely destroyed my sanding block.....oops!!! LOL Ahhh well, it was worth it!!! What do you think??
THANKS for popping by!! Have a great week!!

Inky Impressions Challenge - MASK IT!!!

This weeks challenge over at Inky Impressions Blog is to MASK IT! We are to make a scene using the masking technique. I think masking was one of the first techniques I ever learned. I started out using post it notes then I broke down and bought some Eclipse Masking Tape which I like using - I just don't use it enough! So this challenge was perfect for dusting it off and putting it to good use!!!

We would love it if you would join us in this challenge so head on over to the INKY IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGE BLOG and check out what the other Inspirational Inkettes have created for you to see & join us! If you don't have any Inky Impressions stamps, head to the STORE to get yourself some!!!! You will be happy you did!!!!!

I masked Angelica onto the swing - I think she looks so cute sitting here waiting for her friend to meet her at the park. After I took this photo, I realized it needed some sky in the background so I chalked in some sky and clouds. I love her little pink sneakers!!!!

Paper: Kiwi Kiss; Green Tea DP

You are special to me....

Somehow, I thought this sketch was from last week but apparently I am about 10 sketches behind!!! LOL I am not sure how that happened, but I like this sketch regardless!!!! I made this card using SC224 from SCS. I used Pink Pirouette for my base and EVA paper from Basic Grey (my 2 fave colours!!!) and they coincidentally matched LiLi which I had coloured a few days before making this! This is LiLi's Prayer from Inky Impressions. Isn't she ADORABLE? I think she is in my TOP 10 faves!!! LOL

So, click on the INKY IMPRESSIONS blinky and head over to the store to see the rest of the LiLi and Angelica stamps that are available...they are to die for!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute!!!!!

I added a little charm I picked up at Michael's in the wedding section (I got a TON of great things in that area!!!) and some rhinestones from my stash!!! I coloured her with my Koh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol - my favourite way to colour these little cuties!!!
