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

Ooops Magnolia Birthday Card

This Birthday card was inspired by this invite http://ascrappersmusings.blogspot.com/2013/05/mini-monday-by-not-mamas-and-papas.html I loved the shape of that card and the use of the silverware as embellishments was so clever. I hope the recipient of my card is pleased with this case .
until next time Alicia

Happy New Year 2015!



Happy New Year and hopefully that means I will also keep up with my blog in 2015
Todays card is a simple print and cut from the silhouette site. The New Year sentiment was a free file and the New Year mouse was purchased. I printed two images of the mouse and one mouse outline as just a basic die cut. The basic cut was just a outline that I used for shadow layering instead of printing the image I just cut it like a regular die cut. My little mouse then has three layers two printed and one solid. I used foam dots to pop the images and some glitter boarder stickers to add a festive look.
 Hope you all have a creative 2015.

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.

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.
