Damask Divas For Always Blog Hop

Welcome to my Creating Fun Crafts Blog!
If you came from Sandra Rosario's blog, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

With the For Always paper pack, I made a fun and chunky Love Story mini album.  I used the chipboard pages that came with my Artiste collection, the *For Always Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit (item # G1055) and some other accessories.   

        I decorated each page leaving room for journaling and small pictures.  

 I used liquid glass to add shine and texture to the yellow stamped flowers. 

The items used to make this album are:
*For Always paper packet (x7165b)
*For Always assortment (z1811)
*Shimmer Trim in black (z1809) and silver
Exclusive ink stamp pads in Honey, Slate, White daisy

I hope you like my album!

Make It From Your Heart

Yesterday, I finally decided to get crackin' on putting together my sons scrapbook.  And it's about time because he is almost 4 months old!  I did a one page layout using a pattern from the Close To My Heart book - Make It From Your Heart


This affordable how-to publication features 16 two-page layout patterns, 2 single-page patterns, as well as 12 different card patterns.  There are so many great ideas in here that it is a must-have for every crafter :)  And it is only $7.95!

For this page I used a retired paper pack called Fanfare as well as cranberry bakers twine, burlap ribbon, bitty brads, embroidery floss, Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artiste, exclusive inks stamp pad in Honey, and My Acrylix stamp - Kudos- which is a part of the Cricut collection you receive when ordering the Artiste Cart.

There are so many great paper packs offered by Close To My Heart that you are sure to find one (or more) that is perfect for your pictures.  Visit my website HERE and get started.
