Z Mini Album: Layouts 5 and 6

Hi guys. I'm back with the mini album I created for my son. Today's section has some interactive pages...as well as some half pages for some memorabilia or quotes/stats. 

So here's the left page....

  

It folds open to reveal more layouts:




This section has extra "half pages" between the two layouts....
...these are "pocket pages" and have an "insert". I haven't quite decided what exactly I'm gonna do with the inserts. But at least the decorating part is done. :)

Bold and Bright Birthday

Hi guys. Today's card took me out of my comfort zone. I have a lot of pattern papers in my stash, but I find myself reaching for cardstock and my Cuttlebug folders for backgrounds instead of using the papers!!!! Yeah, just hoard the patterned paper forever!!!! :p

So I challenged myself to use some patterned paper for a card.



I absolutely love this paper line -- very brilliant and bold!

I also reused some flowers from a card I had received. I find it very difficult to throw out any cards I receive ....but there's just too many....and so I have started taking embellishments off the cards, so I can at least reuse them a bit...and not throw everything away.

So the flowers are from a completely different collection, but the colors fit together nicely, I think.

Of course I also added lots of bling...cause I love to make my cards sparkle! :)


Challenge complete! I love everything about this card! :) I'm happy....and gonna be making more cards with this patterned paper for sure! Super easy...and pretty. :)

Tied with a Bow

Hi guys. Another very quick birthday card to showcase. I loved working with the Cuttlebug "Happy Birthday" folder. Embossing makes a card look elegant all on it's own...and you really don't need much else to "spruce it up'. So todays' card is very Clean and Simple - just the way I love them!

I simply added a ribbon from my stash and some tiny white bling all over the background.
