http://dawnsinspirations.com. It worked for me when I recently made a Christmas flip Album for my friend, this is the page 1 and I used a Dyan Revealey stencil for the edges and a memory box stencil for the arrow and a stamp for the palm tree and a little cutting die from Quickutz for the van and trailer and some paper from my scrap pile as a mat behind the photo, I washed the paper with ranger distress re inker - tumbled glass. On page 2, I washed the page again and used a Tim Holtz stencil "stripes" and "clockwork" using "Vintage photo" for everything on the page, used scrap paper again for behind the photo, and more scrap paper to cut out the grass, which is with a Cheery Lynn flower, but it makes great grass, and the road sign was cut with a template that my friend Helen gave me and stamps are from Hero Arts Stamps "Past Times" set. and the arrow is from a Memory Box Stencil. Hope you like these photo's, I will have more in following days, Thanks for visiting

Hi there everyone, here is today's card, it started out with white cardstock for the base and I stamped a Stampendous stamp "Music" with Ranger's distress ink pad "chipped sapphire" and cut out Tim Holtz' bigz cutting die "writing desk" out of a cereal box and shaded that with Rangers ink pad "Vintage photo" and used a Memory Box cutting die and a Cheery lynn die for the "Thinking of you" which I cut out from a dark blue card stock. On the inside I used a Cheery Lynn die "Best Wishes" also cut from dark blue cardstock, I shaded around the edges with the Chipped Sapphire ink pad with a dauber. Hope you all like this card and thanks for visiting!!!

Tube, Dawns Inspirations, and on her 6" x 6" album instructions, she has very clear and understandable instructions, but I changed her 6" x 6" album to a 6" x 6" flip album, with pockets and tags and photo mats, I used 6" x 6" paper pad, a couple of different brands, they were left over from other projects, but I think they all worked out all right, there is room for 20 photo's, this number is not only pages but the photo mats, and there is room for journaling, and I closed the book with a green satin ribbon, I used red glitter paper for the Merry Christmas which was a die cut in "Jolly" die set from Quickutz, I have had this for a long time and the numbers were cut from No.48 Number Set also from Quickutz, I have also had this set for a very long time. I am happy with the finished album and hope my friend will also like it. Thanks for visiting.

Hello there, here is a card I made today to enter into the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #19, "For all that you do - Thank you", http://gloriadesignschallenge.blogspot.com.au, I used a cream cardstock for the card base and used a piece of card,, packaging from an ice cream box, it was the right colour that I wanted and I didn't have any card stock to hand that colour, I shaded the edges with Ranger "vintage photo" ink pad and used a Stabilo fine black pen to make the faux stitching around the edges, and an "On the Edge" Tim Holtz die "doily" and cut out some flags, paper found in my scrap drawer, and used a Spellbinder cutting die "Rose Creations" to make the flower with a centre cut with a paper punch, the flourish was cut with a Die-Namics die "Leafy Flourish" and the "Thanks" was cut with a Memory Box "Thank you" die, the doily was shaded with the "Vintage Photo" ink pad. Hope you all like this one!! The design is from a card map seen on Cheery Lynn email from 26/9/14, from Corina Finley. Thank you Corina for your inspiration!!! All the papers used for this card came out of my scrap drawer/left overs from other projects!
