Just wanted to pop in to say Hi! I've had a great "scrappy" week and have been quite productive. It has been so cold out that other than the work and gym, I have been staying inside. That means time well spent in my scrap room :) I made 2 mini albums this week and a couple pages.
For quite sometime now I've been eyeing the Bo Bunny word albums at my LSS and finally decided to give one a try. I chose the "LOVE" album because I thought it would be quick and simple. And..... actually it did come together very quickly. I received this colorful kit from CROP ADDICT which included the gorgeous, colorful Scenic Route V-day papers. I knew it was going to be the perfect fit for this book. The only tedious part in working on this book was tracing the letters and cutting them out and gluing them to the album. It honestly took me 2 hours..lol---only because I was watching TV at the same time ;-) But, once that part was finished I got to dig into my stash and embellish like a mad women..lol. As you can see I used plenty of rhinestones and Stickles to cover a house, but it's so pretty in the sunlight. Thinking back now......i'ts funny how I used to cringe at the thought of putting glitter or "puffy" paint on my pages.......and now I absolutely *LOVE* it. Funny how your ideas and likes change over time.
I wasn't able to take any pictures at Christmas this year. I thought I had a fully charged battery, but when I arrived and tried to start taking pics....the camera was dead :( My mom let me borrow the card from her camera so I could upload her pics.....so that was good.
To create this fun little book, I cut 2 pieces of 12x12 cardstock in half twice to create a nice 6x6 mini book. I added pages using Hambly transparencies in between each chipboard page...just for fun ;-) I used Scenic Route papers and stickers, along with KI Memories epoxy stickers, rhinestones and buttons and tons of other goodies I had in my stash. This was SUCH a fun little book to create to remember our fun Christmas day.
This layout is using the pics of Steve I took the day he built our giant snow man :) Sadly the bottom part only remains on this snowman, but at least we have the memory captured..right?! To create this page I used last winter KI Memories and some other fun goodies.
The last page I have here I made last night. I invited my mom over to scrap with me. We totally cranked the tunes up and got our groove on while creating. In addition to finishing up the Christmas album, I created this fun page of my sis and I.
Off to watch some movies with my sweetie. I hope everyone has a wonderful night and a great week ahead.
