Bridal Shower Card

My second post for today is a Bridal Shower card for a friend.
A very quick & simple card to make, but I'm happy with the result.

The bride is a digital image, (sorry, can't remember where I got it from) coloured with Copic markers

I used a straight border punch for the black edging around the circle, another way to to use your punches. There are lots of online tutorials for this....
Here's one of them.
I added tiny pearls for earrings and also in her bouquet.

Thanks again for stopping by today.

*Modern Chic* Gatefold Album

Hello there, welcome to my blog!
Today I have another mini album to share with you.

The 8.5" x 11" black, white & grey papers I used are from Michaels.

This is a gatefold album that measures 9 x 7.5" and is just 1" thick.  This time I haven't used any embellishments on the inside pages to leave lots of room for photo's.
You can click on the photo's for a bigger version.

Front cover
I used my Cricut *Sophisticated* cartridge to cut out *Memories* and the butterfly.

Inside covers & first pages.
These are a waterfall, with 3 on each side.... room here for 6 photo's, plus the inside covers

On each side is a pocket with a photo mat, In the middle there are side pockets, each with a photo mat.  Room here for 12 pictures.

Back of album

The beauty of this album is that you can add as many pages as you like.
For the covers, cut chipboard or cereal box if you like, (I used chipboard) 9 x 7.5" for the back and 2 pieces at 4.5 x 7.5" for the fronts.  For the 2 spines, measure the thickness of the pages + 1/4" and cut that measurement x 7.5"  Mine is only 1" thick.
This album design is by Tewtami and her video instructions for the pages can be found *here*

Hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.  
Hope you have a wonderful day & come back soon.

*Pretty in Pink & Green*

I have another album to share with you today.

Here's the papers I used.... very pretty and a *Hot Buy* from Michaels.

There's a video tutorial on youtube for this album.  Here is the link to it.
I did tweak mine a bit.

Okay, here's my pictures..... 
You can click on the pictures to see a larger version.

This album measures about 5.5" x 7.25" and has tons of space for pictures.
The chandelier is a wood die cut from Michaels, I painted it black.

You can see here just how many pages are in this album, It has 6 separate sections and each of the tabs is an insert with a photo mat.

The first page of the first section.
This is a pocket page with a photo mat

On the left page is a pocket with a photo mat, the right side has two pockets, each with a photo mat insert

Pretty papers!

I used the *hidden hinge* binding, designed by Kathy Orta, reinforced with Tyvek.  The instructions for the binding can be found here

Have a wonderful day!
