Today I have a little project I made just for fun. I created this little album for my daughter Jazmine. She even help pick out some of the things I added to her album and she inked the edges of the papers. She wanted to help her mommy make something.
I used my new Basic Grey album die by Sizzix that I just purchased at Joann's for 70 % off, it was $49.95 and I got it for $14.95. It has on the die and album page, flowers in 2 sizes( I used the flower die). the label die that I added to some of the pages, and a heart die, all on one BIG long die. It also came with to embossing folders, but I didn't use it on this . I used one of my Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing folders instead. I got the die so cheap because it was a Christmas die and was marked down 70% off.
I used this sweet digi image by Saturated Canary called " Whispy, a Fairy". I just love all of Krista Smith's sweet images and I think I now have all of them.
Here are the insides of the pages and all they need now is some pictures of my sweet girl Jazmine and maybe some extra embellishments to finish it off after the pictures are added.
I tied the pages together with some rope twine that you can get in any hardware store or Jewelry store. It's a
lot cheaper than the one in the scrapbooking craft area. I also used some Echo Park paper called "Victorian Garden" and some light and dark pink Card Stock. I also added some Distressing ink in "Tea Dye" around the edges and on some of the embossed parts to age it. I also distressed it with a distressing tool by Making Memories.
The last page.
Here is a pic to show some of the sparkle from the glitter glue I added to her, the Spellbinder crown and to the flowers. The rose in the middle is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Here is a list of copics I used to color her.

I am hoping to be able to share more with you this week as I set down today well Saturday and tried to get some of the images I had colored made into cards. I also finished some of my Christmas cards that I didn't get finished in time and believe me I have more to still do. I am still hoping to get them done and then I will have a good start for my 2012 Christmas cards.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful 2012. I am trying to get back to regular posting and commenting.
This week I am way behind as I worked a lot of 12 hr days this week.
Have a great rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by I appreciate it so much.
