Did You Say Mini???

Yes, that is what they said. Over at Pages of the Heart, one of our DT projects this month was to create a mini album. Well if you know me at all, you know that this was a real challenge for me. I usually only do 12x12 albums, but I have to say that I really like the way this one turned out. Take a look...

This was created from the October Afternoon 5 and dime collection. I am really loving this paper. You can buy it at Pages from the Heart.

Sassy Lil' Card Sketches ~ June 21 Reveal

It is that time again for another reveal over at Sassy Lil' Card Sketches. My life has been really crazy the past two months so I missed the first reveal this month, but I was able to get this one done for today's reveal.

Here is Cherie's sketch:

I used this sketch doing a mirror image:

For this card I used my scraps of the October Afternoon 5 & Dime collection. I just love this paper and really like the rosette flowers made with the Tim Holtz Mini Rosette die topped with a button made from the Epiphany Round 25. I also accented along the strip with Recollections Mini Round Gems. I also used one of my Ippity stamps from Unity.

Today is my first project reveal over at Pages From The Heart I was given paper from October Afternoon 5 & Dime Collection. This layout was a lot of fun to do using one of the sketches out of Sketches for Scrapbooking by Scrapbook Generation Vol. 7. I made lots of the rosette flowers from the Tim Holtz mini rosettes die. These flowers can also be made from scratch by using a scor-pal, they were a lot of fun to make and I love the Epiphany Round 14 and 25 that I used to make the tops for them using coordinating paper. I also used the Sew Easy Stitch Piercer for the first time on this project. I will be back to post the mini-album that I made with this fun paperline a little later. Be sure to check out the Pages blog to see more fun projects from the design team.
