Make it Monday Challenge

This week over on Nichole Heady's Blog- Capture the Moment Betsy Veldman has a video on a great stamping technique, that I just had to try. I love Betsy creative style, she is just amazing.
The technique was second generation stamping, where you ink up your stamp image, then stamp it off twice before stamping on your project. It creates a beautiful background for your card projects, brings a whole new use for all your stamps. Watch the video and you'll see what beautiful results you can get. Here is my card.

The stamp set I used was  Snowflake Serenade  . I used Pure Poppy and Antique linen card stock, Dark Chocolate ink, Pure Poppy bakers twine, and my Tim Holtz Christmas dies, love these !!! I posted this card over at Two Peas in the stamping gallery and it was chosen as Featured Porject of the day!! First time ever, that I have had one of my projects highlighted, very exciting. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

My First Acrylic Album

     I attempted  something that I had wanted to try for a while, making an acrylic album. This has intimitated me for some time...I have had the album sitting in a basket for a while, but was not sure just how to go about it.

     My Daughter turned 16 last month and I wanted to make her a keepsake about her life right now. So I thought what better than a mini album, and when I was looking through my stash, I came across my acrylic mini just sitting there...and thought well why not. I am so glad I did, I am really pleased with how it turned out, she loves the color aqua, so this paper from Bo Bunny-Gabrielle  collection was the perfect choice, so pretty, I added lots of butterflies and Tim Holtz goodies, and photos of her friends and family, I also added some really great quotes I found on Pinterest.  I still have a few pictures I want to add, and a few other things to finish up. Here are a few photos of it.

If you would like to see more of this album, you can go to my gallery at "Two Peas in Bucket" see my left sidebar . Thanks for stopping by, Have a Great Day!!
