Wedding Album

After finishing the Paris Album I had to tackle my next project which was a wedding gift for my brother who is getting married at the end of the month.  They're actually getting married in Ochos Rios Jamaica (sadly I do not get to go) and then having a wedding reception after they come back.  So I got to work and surprisingly to me I got it done pretty fast.  I have to admit it is pretty much back to basics scrapbook album style but it was fun making it.

And of course to share it I did my next favourite thing - I made a video. View my youtube video here.  I have to say that it is fun to see the views going up on my video and I have my first subscriber!!  I definately plan to share lots more.

Here's a couple of pictures.  I really need to get a photo box made up and use a real camera, I apologize for the quality - I'm just using my webcam on my computer for now.

The patterned paper is from bo-bunny and then various cardstock.  All the bling is dollarstore and then prima flowers used all over.
Enjoy!!  Oh and if David or Jessica are seeing this - SURPRISE!!!

Happy Stamping!

Paris Album

I've been working on this album for a bit.  My mom wanted an album for my cousin Sarah who went to Paris this summer.  We found the super cute box at HomeSense and just knew we had to make an album to go inside of it. 
You'll have to go over to YouTube to see the full album.  In the debut of my 2nd youtube video :-)  Make sure you leave a comment to let me know what you think.  I took a close up of the inside of the box, you can't really see it that well in the video.  It was mom's idea to add some stuff on the inside - and especially a feather!
I'm sad to give this one away but I'm sure Sarah will love it.

Happy Stamping!

Happy National Card Making Day

Happy National Card Making day!  I told myself I HAD to make a card today of all days and it only took about 8 hours between hanging out with the kids, making dinner and going to the fair. I'm very happy with it though.  I have been wanting to try a 3D image ever since I saw Mariska's work on the Whiff of Joy blog.

And oh boy it was fun.  Take a look...

Here's some extra photos to show the how to and a close up.  Any section that had another layer on top was coloured in black.  I also used my flower forming stylus to round the edges and help the 3D effect.  I have to say that it really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and I will definately be doing it again.

 Hope you all had a great card making day.

Happy Stamping!
