baby onsie part 2

Hello all here is the second part of my onsie album. These are the last 6 months I used cereal weight chipboard for the front and back covers and heavy weight cardstock for the insides backing them back to back for more weight. I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the mats I used for the mother to be to put the photo's on but they slip right down the bottom part of the onsie. Thanks for stopping by.

Mini Baby Album (part 1)

I love mini albums and always say I am going to do more heck I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to mini albums. Well I got the chance to do one for my sister to give at a upcoming baby shower. The mini album is done in the shape of a onesie and decorated in girly fashion. Each of the onsies has a front pocket to hold mats for photos each mat has a month up to 12months.
Be sure to come back to see the rest of the album and more details along with the card. Alicia

Prima Doll Totes

Imitation is suppose to be the highest form of flattery well I hope my friend Ann agrees. The bag above was made by my friend Ann for my last birthday. I just loved it so much I wanted to make one for another friend who I thought would love one too. Ann's bag had such lovely details and a great shabby chic look and one of my favorite Prima dolls. My bag did not have quite the same details but not bad for first try. I used a Prima doll also along with some lace and I also was able to use my portrait cutting machine to cut fabric letters for the back. The new 2014 dolls are now available be sure to take a look at them. Thanks for stopping by

Julie Nutting Dolls

I am obsessed with the prima dolls by Julie Netting it is a perfect fix for the little girl in me that still wants to play with paper dolls. These two cards were done for milestone birthdays sweet 16 and 21 each has a unique look that I think fits each age. The card fold is a accordian which really helps to highlight the dolls accordion cards are 5.5 x 12 but I made mine 7x12 to accomodate the dolls height. I know a lot of people just use the dolls for tags but there are so many more possibilities which I hope to share  in the next few weeks with you. I think double sided paper works best with the accordion but any paper will work.
Thanks for dropping by Alicia

Scary Pop Up Cards

Boo !!! I have some fun Halloween projects to share with you today first up is a set of pop up cards I made using the silhouette and a design from the online store. This easy pop up card can easily be changed for any season or event. I altered my design cover and inside images from the original to make them a little more original.
Now what is Halloween without a trick or treat bag? This is a split personality bag the one side is your mild midnight scene while the flip side is your horror side. I used the silhouette to cut the house and grave yard, stamped the flying witch and sentiment. The horror side was done with clipart with some added 3-D effects and stickles.

Paint Chip Cards

 Hello
 
Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful fall weather. Today I am sharing two cards I did for my card club.
Our challenge was to make a card using paint chips from the paint section of the store. For those of you who can't quite figure out what I am talking about it is the paint swatches you get to take home to match your decor. I guess I should thank Walmart, Homedepot and Lowes 
for the contribution to our challenge (smile)
Now to my cards I used the circle paint chips for my card  the circles are already on the paper I just embossed over them for a more textured look. The scalloped circles are spellbinders and the stamped sentiment is from the $1 bin. The pink card has a store bought embellishmentand and the same spellbinder
scalloped circles. hope this inspires you to take a trip to the paint section for your next card.

100 Years

Today I am sharing one of my favorite images I just love this sweet senior couple by Mo Manning at digital pencil too she has the most adorable images. I have often used this couple for Valentines cards,Anniversary and this time for my husbands birthday last month. I paired it with a favorite verse, colored it with copics and added a sentiment inside. Masculine cards are my least favorite to do so I think I will make a few more to try to improve Thanks for dropping in Alicia
