Party cards

As I mentioned in last weeks post, I have a few cards to share using the Authentique "Party" paper along with some cardstock stickers. The 2 pages of cut aparts are both feminine and masculine.

Kraft card stock for the base and I layered pattern paper and Kraft cardstock, a cut apart adhered to Kraft card stock with a piece of twine tied around it; finished it off with a couple of buttons in the lower left corner.

Kraft card stock for the base, layered Kraft and pattern paper and made some tags, layered on to the front of the card. Cut an oval out of one of the cut aparts and adhered it, off centered, to an oval die cut. Popped it up with some Stamping Up dimensionals. Tucked in some black twine made into bows to the right side of the cut apart.
Same thing for the top and bottom cards except I switched to black card stock and layered pattern paper along with layering a cut apart to black card stock. Using Stamping Up dimensions, adhered it to front of card. Added bows made from ribbon and twine from my stash
This last card was actually made from a piece of the 12 x 12 pattern paper. I cut it to size, added some  glossy accents to the balloons and the speakers on his radio.

Below is a close up of the speakers and balloons. Hope you can see the shine of the glossy accents.

I have been busy in my craft space. Once you get the mojo back, you just can't quit!! Next week I will share another mini album I made from another wonderful crafter I discovered while carousing You Tube again!
Have a great week ahead -

Gate fold mini album

I'm sharing another album I finished following the amazing Frances Long's tutorials on You Tube.
This one is her Gate Fold mini album, version 1. I used Carta Bella's paper line "Summer Splash".

 The two doors are held closed by a magnet closure on the right side of the cut apart.

There is a mini waterfall folio on inside of left door that holds 3x4 pictures. You will see quite a few stickers from the collection that I reinforced with cardstock on the backs and used as 'tuck spots' throughout the album.

This is an expanding pocket that holds a ton of cut parts and photo mats/booklets (see photo below).

 Inside flap that holds a large tag and opposite side has a belly band that holds more cut aparts

 More photo spots

 Inside front right door has 2 pockets that holds 1 large and 1 small tag

A large waterfall folio that holds 4x6 photos.

That is it from me. Working on a few cards using Authentique "Party" paper line that I will share with you next week.

I haven't shared any pics of the baby lately - he'll be 2 next month! Where does the time go?

My little Target shopper!
