Hello Crafty Friends! It's been a while. I thought with the arrival of Spring it was adios to cold & flu season. Boy, was I wrong! I came down with a nasty bug and was down & out the whole week. Thankfully it was just me that got sick and not my entire clan. And, even though I was sick it was sure nice to catch up on some much needed rest. So, just in case anyone was wondering that's what happened to me and why I was M.I.A..
Any-who... I got a few crafty projects I wanted to share.
The first is a
Hindi inspired accordion style photo album.
Believe it or not... This was by far one of the easiest projects I made.
What made it so easy was I purchase a pre-made accordion style photo album. This album held photos that measure 4"x 6". So, I just cut out an assortment of papers into 4"x6" rectangles and slid them into the pockets.
I used the elephant from the Lil' Wild Thing from Design on Cloud 9. I also used tags from the More Artisan Labels file to dress the elephants.
The frame is a retired Sizzix Bigz frame die called Frame Ornate#2.
See... Easy-Peasy! You can transform any thing from plain to adorable in a matter of minutes.
My next project is a super cute
Bunny Card & Gift Box Set.
To create this gift set I used the Bunny Cuties File from DC9 for the sitting bunny and peeker
Martha Stewart's Around the Page Eyelet Lace Border Punch for the lacy paper trim
And Accucut's Box- Gable.
I used the bunny from the basket
I thought the bunny would be extra cute holding onto the bow instead of just peeking over the border.
I just love this little bunny holding her feet!
OK... Last project... promise
I finally did a double layout... I don't think I've done one within the last few months. In fact I think the last double layout I made was in November of last year. Wow!
I call this one...
I used DC9's Egg-stra Cute Ewe set for the sheep. And Snowman Skaters for the trees. Sorry, the eyes do not come with the Egg-stra Cute Ewe file set. It is a svg file I personally created. I call them my "pretty eyes".
For the picture frames I used Sizzix's Wavy Frame Bigz Die
and Accucut's Frame & Background- Wavy Die
I also used Martha Stewart's Around the Page Wild Flowers Border Punch and EK Success' Scalloped Scallop Edger Punch for the border trims.
I hope you enjoyed looking at all my creations because I enjoyed making them.
And, as always HAPPY CRAFTING everyone!!
