My Geli Print Papers In A New Album

I just put the finishing touches on this new Mini Album. This album is made from three 5 x 7" envelopes and three 5 x 7"cards.  I followed Kathy Orta's instructions for making  this album.

I'm entering this in the Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge, Week 152.

This is the album's front cover. The heart tabs on the top of all the photo mats were made using scraps of leftover card stock. The album is kept closed with a ribbon that was left over from  my birthday gift wrapping.   All the papers used in this project were printed on my geli plate.

This is a pic of page two and three.

The two photo mats fit in pages two and three.

This is pages four and five with more photo mats.

This picture shows the photo mat that tucks into the side of page five.

This is a picture of page six, the last page.

I made two cards using bits and pieces of paper from projects made long ago. Sent one of the cards to a special someone who likes ladybugs. Now that she's received her card I can show & tell this one.

The digital image is from "A Day For Daisies". Papers were all leftovers and I had lots of fun making all those little dots to place randomly on the card. The sentiment is a die  from Elizabeth Craft. The string was part of a blog candy giveaway that I won a couple of weeks ago. Used my new set of colored pencils on the image.

This curious  little girl is going to join all the fun over at Pixie's Playground.

I hope you are having a good day and hope you"ll come back and visit my blog again soon.

A Happy Little Bluebird

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for the current challenge at "A Day For Daisies". This digi  image is from the ADFD blog.

  I ordered a new set of  Prisma colored pencils  last week and this is the first digital image that I colored using them. I can't tell you how much I love these new pencils.

This is also the first time that I used the  Spellbinders "Filigree Delight"  die and I promise that you will be seeing it used on  lots of my cards  in the near future. I think it is my (new)  favorite background. I used Kraft for the Filigree and placed it on a cream colored card stock card base.

Last week I  wasn't able to join the group playing at Pixie's Playground but my card qualifies this week for the 150 Challenge. I used a little snippet of rayon ribbon left over from a sewing project and the sentiment tag was also a leftover from cards that were made last summer.

Thanks for visiting today. I appreciate your comments and hope you will become a new follower.
