More Amore Scrapbook Album

Good Morning Friends, 

Here's a sneak peek of a scrapbook album I'm working on featuring the More Amore Specialty DSP from the Spring Catalog (129309). It started out as an on-line class I was going to film until I realized it would take few hours of video and would take way too much time.

 This page is a simple cross over that I heat embossed and added a tag for a photo and journaling:

These two pages have a pop-up heart in the center, photo mats, pockets and tags:

 This page has a mini album with a pocket for a tag:

There's a pocket in the inside flap for a tag and each page flips open for photos and journaling:

 The left page flips opens and will hold 12 photos and the right is a pocket page that contains tags:

Inside view:

I would like to add a couple more pages and I will show it again after I finish it and complete the binding.

Hope Today Finds You...

Happy Friday Friends!

Today's card is full of layers & feminine details. I'm surprising my sister with this card for Valentine's Day...but if she sees this post it really won't be much of a surprise = )
  • The card base is Very Vanilla card stock  4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and rounded the corners
  • Layer Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock (129322 - Spring Catalog) that measures 4" x 5-1/4" and embossed using the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (129378 - Spring Catalog) and lightly sand the surface with the Stampin' Sanding System (129367 - Spring Catalog).
  • Next, cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using the Scallop Circle Bigz Die (113468) and cut in half using  Stampin Trimmer (126889). Pierce each scallop with the Paper Piercing Tool (126189) and Stampin Pierce Mat (126199).
  • On top of scallop circle, add half of a Very Vanilla Doily cut using the Paper Doily Sizzlit L Die (125592)
  • Adhere the new 5/8" Vanilla Flower Trim (126869 - Spring Catalog) These gorgeous, dimensional flowers come on a strip of tulle for a girly, vintage look.

Cut out using the smallest die from the Labels Framelits Collection (125598). Layer onto Primrose Petals card stock (126841) cut, using the 2nd to smallest Labels Framelit die.

Real Men Build Cards!

Dude, You're Welcome! is Stampin' Up!'s latest product for men who need a quick and easy way to tell that special someone they care ...and feel like a man the whole time.

My hubby is getting one for Valentines Day, so he can experience my love for stamping, firsthand, with his own products. He's always checking out my "cool tools" and borrowing something for a non-paper crafting project. I hope this doesn't lead to him wanting his own craft room = ) 

I just had to share with you this cute video from Stampin' Up!
