Card, mini album, tag...oh my!

Well, hello there!  Got a minute?!  I have a fun little project to share with you today!  I had so much fun making this and oh my goodness...the mess I left behind doing it!!  LOL   I know it sounds silly, but I can often correlate how happy I am with a project by the size of the chaotic mess I've left behind!  Anyone else feel that way?   Ok, want to see this cute little guy?

It is a card/mini album/tag book!!  I couldn't decide, so you feel free to choose! :)

Lots of fun details on the cover!

This is what it looks like open.  It has three mini treat bags layered one on top of the other!

Each of the three bags has a pull out tag that can be be used to journal, add pictures to or both!  You could even add pictures to both sides! I scored a channel into the cover to accommodate the thickness of the bags.

I only secured them to one another along the bottom edge so they would flop open accordion style!

Here are the 3 tags outside of their bags.

Here they are together!  

I thought this would make a cute Valentine's Day gift!  If you'd like to make one you can find all the of products I used here at my on line store!  Also, please feel free to zip me a quick email if you have any questions! 

Product List

Guess I better go and address the mess I've made!  LOL  Have a great day!  I'll be back soonest with more to share!

Happy birthday wishes!

Hello there!  Wow-ee wow wow,  did that weekend ever fly by?!  It was Friday and I blinked and now here it is Monday already!!  Time is such a funny thing sometimes! Hope your weekend was a good one!

I have been playing in my stamp room this morning and am just love, loving the new stamps Stampin' Up! has come out with in their new Occasions catalog!  Also, because it is Sale-A-Bration (the most wonderful time of the SU! year!!)  I have been playing with lots of my free goodies too!  

My card today uses a combination of catalog products and SAB (free, free and uh did I stuff!).  Want to see...?!

My card today is a little busier than I normally go for, but I was feeling a bit quirky and figured why not?! Live a little, be a wild woman, pile it on!  There is certainly a lot of visual interest here!  I stamped, I sponged, I die cut and I layered!  Go me!

The doily hiding under there was white when I started, but I shaded it Sweet Sugarplum by sponging it (Gently, they are delicate little things!).  The dragonfly is a double layer of cardstock and a glassine sheet.  I also glittered him up with my Wink of Stella pen. Sparkle for the win!! 

It's kind of a hodge podge of random things, but I like the way it came together! 

If you are curious about the items I used to create this little guy, you can find all of them in my online store.  Just click any of the pictures below and it will take you there!

Ok, I have a very full day ahead of me, but I wanted to stop by and visit!  Thank you for visiting with me!  You are one of my very favorite parts of my day!  Have a great one and I will be back soonest with more to share!

You are amazing!

Hello there!  Hope you are enjoying the weekend! I started it out in one of my favorite ways...I have been playing in my stamp room all morning!  It's such good therapy to be creative and usually puts me in the best mood! :)  I thought I would challenge myself to play with a few things I hadn't even opened up yet! (I've just been so behind lately!) Fun, fun, fun!!  Once I narrowed it down to the things I wanted to use, I got busy! I tried several different combos and layouts and finally decided on this:

Now if you know anything about me at all you know I am a pink girl!  Love it!!  Every shade, with polka dots, by itself, with any, love, love it!  It truly is my signature color!  It's my most common go to and usually makes its way onto most of my projects!  I just cannot say enough good things about it! LOL  My card today uses the beautiful Rose Red shade of pink! I paired it with gold, Very Vanilla and Basic Black.  I did all of the complimentary stamping in shades of Blushing Bride.

I'm really loving the Gold Foil sheets!  They just add so much to a project!  It's like a happy little pop of sunny goodness!  I used it to cut the cascadng dragonflies.  The new dragonfly die thinlits are absolutely beautiful!  I see lots of those in my future.

Here are the details and products I used to create this card.  The pictures link to my online store if you'd like to do some shopping!

Ok, I am off to weekend!! Hope yours is a great one! I will be back soonest with more to share!
