Girl Scouts Mini Album

Check out my latest post at Scrappin Sports Stuff . I made this adorable Girl Scout mini album. This mini book was really fun to make and would be a perfect gift for the girl scout in your life or perhaps the scout leader. This K&Co. Girl Scout pad was the perfect choice because it has everything necessary to create this one of a kind mini album.












It was a little hard to choose the papers I wanted to work with because each pattern paper would have worked out beautifully. Once I decided which papers to use, I cut each page to fit my album, adding cardstock for the photo mats, and added titles and phrases.

Once completed, I punched holes in the edges and added the binder rings.

Supplies:

Cardstock: Bazzill, Cardstock Warehouse
Pattern Paper: K&Co.

Dream

I altered these wooden letters with assorted pattern papers and assorted chipboard elements.

I traced the letters onto the back of assorted pattern papers and cut them out. I mixed and matched the colors and designs, tearing each piece for dimension. After adhering the papers, I chose elements I wanted to add about my dream for traveling.



All the chipboard elements were inked and added to the letters using my Xyron Sticker Maker and 5" Model. Rub-ons were then strategically placed, along with several stickers. Ribbon were tied as a finishing touch.

Pattern paper: MyMindsEye, Provocraft
Ink: Clearsnap
Chipboard Elements: Provocraft, Basic Grey

Love

Love is in the air when using Kreaxion punches. Did you know they work really well on glitter paper when used in conjunction with the Punch Mate. The Punch Mate really helps punch through some of the thicker papers on the market.



Using punch 303, I punched along edge of white glitter paper, then sewed it onto the bottom of my card, creating a really fun border.



Supplies:
Punch, glitter paper: Kreaxions
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Cardstock: Bazzill
Die cut machine: Cricut

Thanks

I have always loved this Stampin Up Stamp and since I needed a Thank you card for a friend, I thought it would be perfect to use with Clearsnap Chalk Ink. I stamped the background with The Stamps of Life and Clearsnap Chestnut Roan Ink, reinking the sentiment to fit my background paper. I die cut the image with Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Ovals and stamped a seperate sentiment to place on top. Before assembling the card, I inked the edges of the background with Clearsnap Dark Brown Ink.

Give Thanks

This month's challenge at Scor-Pal is to create a project giving Thanks.

I apologize for the poor quality of my photos this morning. I will try to fix them later.

Using my Scor-Pal, I created a tri fold card, then added elements in keeping with the theme. The lace pattern and cornucopia were die cut with my Cricut. I placed a mat under the lace, then cut it in half to fit the card front. I then cut a flap to fit the card from brown cardstock, then cut a smaller piece of orange to fit on top. I scored 3/8" around this piece and lightly inked it before adding it to the card. The cornucopia layer was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and also lightly inked before adding it to it's base with foam adhesives. Using Clearsnap's Glue Gloss, I added some raffia to the center of the cornucopia.



For the interior sentiment, I used Justrite stamps.



Supplies:
Cardstock: Worldwin Paper; GCD Studios
Die cuts: Cricut Expression, Paper Lace and Thanksgiving cartridges
Embossing: Cuttlebug
Ink: Clearsnap Chestnut Roan
Stamps: Justrite
Scoring tool: Scor-Pal
Adhesive: Clearsnap; Helmar

You Make My Heart Smile

Today's post at JustImagine Crafts shows how I used punch # 903.

Using this punch along the bottom edge of a card really adds a nice impact. I just added a strip of black cardstock behind the punched design to help it stand out.



I then used the wonderful Circle Cutter to cut 2 circles upon which I added a beautiful K&Co. flower and leaf. The sentiment was placed under the circles.

Scor Pal and Bo Bunny

This week is a joint venture between Scor Pal and Bo Bunny. I hope you've been following along and seeing all the wonderful projects being created. There are prizes involved if you follow along!

I had the privilege of working with Bo Bunny's Garden Girl line in conjuction with my Scor Pal this month. Since Bo Bunny was very generous with their supplies, I decided to make a party ensemble.



The Party banner was cut at 5" and 5 1/2" with my Cricut Expression and the Sports Mania Cartridge. The smaller piece was inked with Clearsnap's Mix'd Media Leather Inx and adhered on the larger piece. A small piece of pink cardstock was cut for the top of the banner headers and 2 score lines were made with my Scor-Pal. Ink was added to the score lines to help them stand out a bit. The letters were cut using the Plantin Cartridge and attached to a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle.






The candy bag uses a Bo Bunny die cut that was scored in half with my Scor-Pal then adhered to the top of the bag. A second Bo Bunny die cut and the owl were added on top.



The gift bag uses Bo Bunny cardstock and pattern paper. - score lines were added across the bag just above the pearl accents. Don't you love that owl?




The card was cut 5 1/2" x 11" and then folded to create a center opening. A Bo Bunny die cut was used on the card's front and rub-ons were added. Inside, I added additional Bo Bunny die cuts. The edges were then inked.



Supplies:
Scoring tool: Scor-Pal
Cardstock, pattern paper, die cuts, brads, buttons: Bo Bunny Garden Girl Collection
Ink: Clearsnap
Die cuts: Spellbinders, Nestabilities; Cricut Expression
