Pink Birthday Somethings!


This is for the Stamp Something Challenge Blog. Design Team member Melissa's term is up, and she loves pink, so everyone is doing a pink sendoff for her! I used Bazzil and Crate paper, an Inkadinkado stamp, K&Co sentiment, and lots of Stickles! I punched pattern tissue and Crate paper to make the flowers. The centers are mm brads, and there's a large Prima under one.

I thought I'd show you a couple more pictures of my Creative Cuts and More mini album. I used pictures from my wedding shower, which was in December of 1988! The entire mini album, plus the rings come cut and ready to go from CC&M. I just added pics, designer paper and embellies. I used a making memories alphabet rubon book to form the word loot. They work really well, and are surprisingly easy to get straight. The punches are all  from SU! I used Cotton Candy Stickles on every page, and added dots with my American Crafts pen. All the vintage images are from Crafty Secrets. I embossed them all with clear. On some pages I used my Basic Hearts Spellbinders die, which is on sale now! I love this die, and use it all the time!!

YUMMMMM!!! what a great pink gift ensemble, Carla. listen, I have to confess -- in the last few days, I've been actually going to everything you link in your posts, but then I get distracted or interrupted or whatever, and I never make it BACK to your post to leave a comment. So I may have to just IGNORE your links or you will never hear a peep from me, I fear! (in the case of links to stamp sites, I will also save a bundle o'cash!! ha!)

I was going to say you have the most beautiful embellies and you punched these flowers yourself. Gorgeous choice. I love what Amy said. Everything is put together with so much detail. And it seems natural. Why aren't you teaching art instead of English? Never mind. We all have our passiion. My dream was to become an English teacher and sadly I got sidetracked. Ah well. Next life. Your mini book is fab! 1988 eh. I was married the first time in 84. What a mistake. Too young is too young. I'm blabbering.
