More on West Palm Beach Mission Trip (Album in a Box mini-album)

I'm sharing photos of what I have, so far on the Album in A Box mini-album ... the project is not finished as I have to order some cardstock, but here is what I've done:

Please excuse the mess under the table :-)  This is the top/front cover of the Album in a Box mini-album.  I will be adding either seashells for embellishing, or a baby size flip flop to the right side corner.

This is the back side of the cover.  I printed the flip flop onto watercolor (lightweight, almost like the texture scrapbook paper you find  online or at craft stores).  Trimmed to size, and before I glued it down, I inserted the posts w/screws to each corner for legs to stand on.

This is the inside of the Album in a Box.  I decided I wanted the waterfall effect for photos and decided to make as a doubled side waterfall,  Inside there is a flap that will be matted that folds down to put photos on each side and the inside (I will take pictures later when finished)

The inside of the bottom cover I will use the hidden binding system and add four or five pages that will have flaps and/or pockets for more photos, etc.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today.  And every father out there have a Happy Father's Day.

More coloring pages

A coloring page I completed and framed; and hung in my bathroom.  I used my Stampin Up Ink markers to color this page.

I am working on two more coloring projects for the walls in my apartment.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and have a blessed week.

Album in a Box

This will a long blog of photos of a Album in a Box project I am making; and unfortunately I had to halt the work as I ran out of adhesive but soon will go to Hobby Lobby and purchase some.  I love Scor-tape but I don't quite have all the money to order (Hobby Lobby does not carry it!!).

The inspiration for this Album in a Box came from a live tutorial on Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations.  Once a week she has a tutorial of a album to share  where she gives the measurements, etc in the video.  I love this Facebook page, and she also has a store Country Craft Creations where she sells the supplies for the albums, i.e.: chipboard, adhesive, paper, etc.

So now onto the photos of this project:

Thank you so much for visiting with me today, and hope this gives you all some inspiration to create this Album in a Box.  Have a blessed weekend.

A Mother's Day Card

Good morning everybody.  I would like to share a Mother's Day Card I made for my  daughter-in-law last month, using a file from Creative called 'Rose Punch Out Card' part of a set of  Punch Out Cards by Cheryl Scrappinmini ... i.e. Cheryl Walton of Creative Kuts.

This is the front of the card, using what I have available in my stash of paper/cardstock.  I added three gemstones, and a butterfly for decorations.

And this the inside of the card.  The title 'Happy Mother's Day' I printed it white and than colored with my gel pens.  The Rose I cut and sponge the edges with distressed ink 'Tea'.  Added a bee and couple of gemstones.

I edited my photos in Adobe Photoshop Elements and created a framed picture using a weathered frame from (I believe) Creative Market.

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have a blessed day.
