Anniversary Belli Challenge

I made a mini album out of my cake ingredients. I thought for a day as it was difficult to come up with ideas for what my ingredients ended up being. Well at least I thought it was difficult until I got started. Then the fun began.
My Ingredients:
Designer Paper
I started out with a mini chipboard album I purchased at a dollar store. I hated the front of it so this is where the fun began was to change the front of my mini album. I traced around my chipboard front and back and cut out designer paper and glued to the front and back of my album. Inside the front to and inside the back cover to match. I think took a die cut flower and die cut our 3 pieces of cereal box and glued them together to make another piece of chipboard and decorated that with the designer paper that I also used the flower die cut on. Glued them to the chipboard flower and took black ink and inked around the edges to make it stand out from the same designer paper album. Put a two pop dots on the back of it and added it to the front of my album. Added a pink button to that with some hemp tied on the button which I figured would look good for a flower center.
So now that is the designer paper, the button and the chipboard down. All that is left is the brads and ribbon. See much easier than you was thinking huh?
I dug out a Celebration Clear Embellishment and added Rhinestone brads to this and put adhesive on the back and added in the bottom right hand corner.
Lastly I added black and red ribbon on the rings of the book to complete it.
I hope you all like the book. I will be finishing up the pages and will share with you throughout the rest of the week. I am excited to get it done. Thinking I will be putting my daughters graduation samples of pictures we took in this book. We took many of them but picked a few favorites. This could be her little memory book of the fun we had taking the pictures.
Please take some time to check out the other Belli Challenge Girls projects from this Challenge
What will you make with yours? Here is what you need to do to be entered in the CB Challenge this week. It's Anniversary cake week. Go to Chrissy's Blog and read and play along. This was a lot of fun. You know you want to do it so go and check it out.

Super Deluxe Tuckbox Template Maker

Wanda has this link on her site that is so helpful. I wanted to make sure that you all knew about it too. If you love to make boxes for your projects, then this is the site for you. All you need to do is put in the measurements you want and it will create a PDF file for you. How cool is that? I know for me I am going to start using it. Then we can just print that puppy out and make our own boxes. You can go to the site here to put in your measurements for your boxes. Thanks Wanda for the heads up on this site it will really come in handy for many of us.
Sunday my two sisters and I got together again and did more background pages. I got another 13 of them done so can start my pages soon. I will share more of those background pages with you though out the week.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

CBC50 Neglected Stamps

I used the set A New Little Someone for this challenge it has been a while since I used it. I love this stamp set and really wish we still had it. Works for many things, not just for baby cards.

On this card I used pop dots and I had stamped my image twice and cut out the arms and ears and pop dotted them and layered them on top in the right places. Don't think by the scan you can see that though. I also stamped him on the same designer paper and cut out his pads for his feet, ears and ribbon for around his neck to match.

I stamped my images in Chocolate Chip and also the upper half of the background of this card. Lower half is designer paper which I am not sure where I got it from. I stamped hugs and kisses on it so it can be used as a Get Well Card or a Baby Card. I then cut the designer paper so it went most of the way up just a little over 1/2 way. Then I added chocolate chip ribbon and tied it on the side. I used a large scalloped circle punch I believe it was a 3" punch. Then with Whisper White I added that to the Chocolate chip scallop piece for layering my bunny on. The bunny is cut out and I used pot dots to mount him to the scalloped circle. I also used a chocolate chip marker and went around and put dots on each scallop. And that is pretty much it. It is a basic card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. When mailing a card like this that is popped out or thicker with ribbons ect. It is best to turn the card inside out so it don't get caught when going though the mail and ruining your card.

Please take some time to check out the other girls on the Belli Challenge, they have done some wonderful artwork too.

More Heritage Pages

Here are two more Heritage pages I did. I will share the other two I got done tomorrow. Hope these help you get ideas. Both of these pages have the same stamps on them but they look so different. Think I will add some white craft ink to the sides to make them look more older and worn. I really like how these two turned out. The white craft ink on these make them look silver at times and white at others, depending on the lighting an how it is help.

You can also do up pages like this and cut them in quarters and use them for cards. Or cut them in many pieces and and use them as accents on pages.

I am really enjoying being back to stamping I missed it. I had lost my mojo when I was doing so much for Mom and just didn't have the desire to do any stamping let alone any other craft. Now that she is feeling somewhat better I am back to stamping and think I have my mojo back.

Anyway my sisters and I are getting together every Sunday after noon to stamp so we can get a bunch of pages done. Hoping this works out for all of us.

I'm back!.....Heritage Background Pages

Bet you thought I was never coming back. I have been down with sinus headaches and taking care of my Mom. In and out of the hospital. I think this time they finally got her feeling good enough that she will do better now.
My sisters and myself are doing some heritage scrapbooks. We are just doing background pages right now and will add the rest as we get more done. Going to get information from my parents while they are still her on a lot of the pictures. I am doing more pages that look like old wallpaper like my parents used to have and aunts and uncles. I love the old fashioned look. Today I will share a page or two with you and you can see how I do my background pages for heritage pages. Tomorrow I will share more and also getting back into the Belli Challenges. So for today here are two pages, hope you enjoy and get some ideas from these. When they are finished with pictures and stuff I will share again.
Do any of these look like wallpaper from the olden days?
