Damask Divas - Chantilly Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Damask Divas blog hop featuring the Chantilly paper pack.   If you came from Ashley Greaux, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at the Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of participants.

My project is a 6x6 accordion album.  

I purchased three of these online so I could decorate one for each of my little ones.  The Chantilly paper was perfect for this.  I made each of the shapes on the pages in the craft room to fit how I wanted in the 6x6 space, making them large enough for photos and embellishments.  I made a small tag for journaling because I am not a very good writer :(. The flowers are from Art Philosophy and they range in size from 1 1/4 to 2 1/4.  The branches were cut at 2.5 and I scored the leaves down the middle so I could bend them.  I also added an envelope for any keepsake items we may want to save - that was cut at about 5in.  I added chocolate ink to all of my edges and added some glitter paper, shimmer trim, and sparkles to finish.


Items Used:
Chantilly paper pack
Chantilly card making kit (ribbon, wooden badge buttons, Kraft cardstock)
Pear and Sunset cardstock
LagoonSunsetChocolate ink pad
Cricut Artiste
Cricut Art Philosophy
Silver shimmer trim
Glitter paper
Hook and loop dots
Stamp sets Frame Flair and Princess Wings
Baker's Twine Paradise assortment
Sparkles, foam dots, twine

The next blog on the list is Teri Hanson. We hope you have a great time on our hop and checking out all the creations using the Chantilly paper pack.  If you happen to get lost, just hop on over to the Damask Divas blog for the full list.

Scrapbook layout using Clementine paper pack

While going through all of my paper, I found a few pieces of Clementine paper and wanted to use them for something, anything!  I have tons of pictures of my girls that don't have a home so I went online and found a template that I thought would be perfect.  Check it out.

All of the cuts were made with the Art Philosophy cartridge with the exception of the tag.  I think I cut that from the Treat Boxes cartridge a while back when it was free in the craft room.  I embellished with Opaques Mocha gems, Bitty Opaques Pearls, edge anchors and ribbon from the Cocoa collection.  I also used the Chocolate stamp pad to ink the edges.

Let me know what you think :)

Flirty Mini Book

Hello and Happy Presidents' Day!
I wanted to share a mini book that I created using the Close to my Heart Flirty paper pack.  I love mini albums and this one looked fun and easy.  I was inspired by a video that I saw on the Close to my Heart YouTube channel and the Flirty paper was only $1.75 in the While Supplies Last section on my website!  But, sadly it is gone now.  Make sure you check this section often so you don't miss a great deal!

This is the Project Inspirations: Mini Album video

Here is my book

I used the stamp set Love Blooms for the cover sentiment, flowers, leaves and on the inside papers -
It coordinates perfectly with this paper pack.  I used more shapes inside so I could add more pics and journaling.  It made it a little harder to sew in the spine but i made it happen :)

Check out the video and create a fun mini book of your own!
