Now for my project! I love this Box Album file, I have many ideas for using it to make more projects. On the outside of my box I used purple wood grain paper and used purple paisley for the inside. To decorate my Box Album I used the Flowers file, and Frannie's Fluttering Hearts, With the Flowers file I welded two of the flowers together to get a eight petal flower, I cut two of these to make the one flower. I used extra flourishes from Frannie's Fluttering Hearts behind the flowers, heart and beside the photo mats. I embellished the little nodes on the flourishes with black rhinestones, they do not show very well in the pictures. I put Frannie on the front of the accordian fold album. For the album I used one inch strips of the paisley paper to put four pieces of black cardstock together and put a one inch border on all edges and I put a mat of the purple wood grain paper in the center of the black cardstock.

Thank you so much for hopping with us this weekend. Don't miss out on the big sale advertised on both CK & CK2 at the beginning and end of our hop!!!

Thought I'd take a few minutes to post some of the things I've been making. I can't remember to post here on the blog, I'm always behind here.  

My card for the Creative Kuts' Build A Project.

                                                         Mother Goose Card

When I was working at school a few years ago, the ladies that I worked with started calling our boss Mother Goose. We found out that there was a Mother Goose Day, celebrated on May 1, so we made that the day we celebrated her putting up with all of us. Many of us have left the school and just last year she retired but we all still call her Mother Goose and I made this card for her. This is also my DT project for Creative Kuts for last week.

8th Birthday

My Grandson, is 8 years old! Time flies!!!  He loves playing Mario World with me! Mostly because I crack him up with my playing skills. I can only play the first 2 levels, after that, well he is just cracking up!! He got a room makeover just like his sister did, he went with a red, white and blue room. That was he party theme also. I didn't make him a red, white and blue card, I made him a Mario card and it has those colors on the card.

                                  My Little Artist Layout

                                                         I used the My Little Artist file

Easter Cards
These are the cards I made for my Grandchildren.
I used the Creative Kuts' Jelly Belly files.

Dressed Up Eggs
I was just playing around and came up with this idea to dress up eggs.
I just used pieces from cutting files to dress them up.

Well, that's it, I am now caught up.
Creative Kuts is having a Blog Hop

Creative Kut's Build A Project for the Week of March 26

This is my BAP for the week of March 26

My Baby is 12!!

My Granddaughter celebrated her 12th birthday last week! She is growing up SOOOO fast!! Her color scheme this year was purple, pink & zebra stripes. She got a bedroom makeover for her birthday and she chose dark purple for 3 walls and zebra stripes on the 4th. Her bedding and curtains are bright pink. So she wanted the same colors for her 2 parties (1 for family & the 2nd a sleepover)! I made her a 12 shaped card in her colors and I made larger extras for decorations. She is into peace signs so I decorated her gift bag with a peace sign and groovy flowers.

Happy Birthday, Mom!!

This is the card I made for my Mom's birthday. I usually make cards with flowers so I thought I'd do something different. I used the Nuttin' But Love file from Scrapping Bug Designs. My Mom really liked her card. I think it came out very cute, this is a really cute file!

Like No Udder

This is my layout for my posting day last week. I used the Like No Udder file from Creative Kuts.
I put it together to go with the chicken layout I made earlier. I think the cows came out pretty cute.

PS- I do know how to spell marvelous, I just thought the "A" would make it sound more cow like.
