Good day everyone!! Hope you are having a fantastic Friday! I know I am! Our challenge this time on Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog was to challenge yourself to do something you normally don't do. I have really been wanting to try making a mini album using the toilet tissue roll tubes (don't know the correct name but that's what I've been calling it hee hee) Since I've seen this I have been saving our's for awhile and got a nice supply so I could have plenty in case I really got into making them! This was a real challenge for me working on something this small and making mini albums is something I really struggle with. But I have to say I had a ball and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out! I didn't write anything down when I was making it so I hope I can remember the supplies I used! On the cover I made this flower using my stamping up scallop punch and added a gem brad (which you can't see in the picture but its there!!). The leaves were punched with my Martha Stewart punch. I used my cricut for the word Family and the little frame but I'm sorry I can't remember which carts I used. I will have to start getting better on remembering this stuff!! Since I've gotten my Gyspy it seems like I don't pay much attention which cart. I'm using I just find what I want and cut!!
This page I wanted to add a picture of me and hubby on our wedding day. I used a template (Hot Off The Press) to hand cut the little file folder. I cut the wedding bands from the Sweethearts cartridge (yay!! I remembered that one hee hee) and embossed with Gold Stampin Up Embossing powder. I added a heart gem for the diamond. The rub on is from K & Co. and the flower is a prima flower.
Here I made a little fold out page. I used a Studio G stamp for the Happy Meter. I cut a heart out and ran it thru backwards so I could add some gold glitter. I then stamped the word love and attached it with some brads then glued in onto the side of the front flap.
