Rebecca's Birthday Present

This is a cute banner I did for my liitle friend Rebeecca's birthday tomorrow. It's for her bedroom wall and I used the colors in her room. I cut the chipboard points from a pack of Colobok chipsheets. All papers were Little Yellow Bicycle except for the blue floral which is K and Co. The scallop across the top of each point is Martha Stewart punch....I think It's called lace doily.{ got it at Walmart}. butterfly punch is also Martha. Letters were cut with Storybook cartridge from cricut and decorated with a little pink cardstock and some bling.I haven't got a pic of it totally finished but I used eyelets on each and tied them together with a pink and green ribbon. { I'll try to get a pic tomorrow before I give it to her}. Hope she likes it...thanks for dropping by!

Butterflies and Bathing Beauties

Well...after my little hissie fit with my new Kodak printer {which God love Staples they replaced on the spot no questions asked} I finally got around to this little mini album that was my original project of that night...mind you, I didn't go about it the way I had planned. Go figure!!!! My ORIGINAL plan was to cut out a butterfly shape from chipboard with my Cricut... that just caused another machine SNAFU... btw did ya know it's hard on the Cricut blade to try and cut chipboard ??? Take my advice and invest in the deeper blade made for that purpose... anyhoo{ yes I know I have random thought patterns!} I stumbled across these cute little PRECUT chipboard albums at Michael's for only $1 !!! almost as good as hitting the easy button at Staples! The albums { I did one for the lady who hosted us too} came together in a snap. How do you guys adhere paper to your chipboard? I'm a fan of Modge Podge myself tho my friend Lisa uses her Zyron...lucky for her, she has a ginormous one where as I have a little one only suitable for making 1" stickers. I'd love to hear any suggestions for adhering!I used all 2x2 pics on this mini album. The paper is all DCWV Citrus collection ...made the embellies from same paper. Thanks for dropping by!
