Holiday SAS

Yesterday I had a wonderful group of ladies attend my Holiday Stamp a Stack. They were a delight to have. They loved my stamp room, but so do I. My DH is very good to me. He told me I need a small refrigerator in my room, yeah! So I will post a couple of the cards today. Most you can figure out, but if you need any specifics, send me an email. I have to say thanks to Dawn at Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts for my version of her Frankie card.  The tree is embossed with gold and I used the new ribbon in the Holiday Mini. The last card with Jocelyn’s (my granddaughter) photo in is  12 x 3 7/8 c/s scored at 3″.

Clear Album

I’ve been wanting to make one of those acrylic photo albums for a while now, but SU doesn’t sell them and the ones I’ve seen are at least $14.99 each. So I was talking to a friend, (thanks Elisa) and she said that she’s made them using our Paper Holders that are found on page 195 in the catalog. I found these photos in an envelope in my craft room when I was purging. I was going to make my Uncle a little album from the photos of my niece’s high school graduation and our time together, last year. I know, I do have the best intentions, just don’t always follow through with them. 

Back to the album. I must say it was a little tricky doing each page so the adhesive doesn’t show on the next page.  But I think it turned out pretty cute!
I used the Maine Blueberry DSP, On Board Lower Case Alphabet left over from convention, the Hidden Garden bulk rub-ons, Bigz, Top Note die & Circles, Scallop #2 die, Birds & Blooms Scallop Circles die, and my Bind-it-All.
I embossed the letters with clear embossing powder and added ribbon to several of them, and also on the binding.       
I can’t seem to get my photos to appear in the right order. And I can’t get the last 2 photos to load onto my blog. If anyone has any tips for me, I would love to hear from you. It’s times like this that I think I will NEVER get this computer stuff……….

Bigz Scallop Envelope Box

Checkout the box I just made with the Bigz Scallop Envelope Die. I found this on Fireflies and Flutterbyes blog, (thanks to my Sister). I ended up using adhesive to hold down the envelope flaps, she didn’t adhere her flaps. This was so simple. You use 4 envelopes and adhere the side flaps together. Check out her blog she has a tutorial. I used:

Riding Hood Red c/s
Holiday Treasures DSP
Cute & Curly stamp set, stamped in RH Red & Kiwi Kiss
Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon
Curly Label & Small Oval Punches
