Baby Shower Album

Happy Hump Day!  Friday is just around the corner.  Wanted to post this baby shower album I made last month.  The person who requested was going to give it as a gift to her daughter-in-law who is having twin girls.

Here are a couple of close up pics.

Vinyl Letters

I made this a while back ago and never posted it.  I've always loved inspirational messages and thought this would be a cute idea for the playroom.  I LOVE to exhibit the artwork the boys come home with. (yes, to me everything they do is better than Picasso)  I was a little scared to use vinyl (not sure why, it's not like it was going to bite me!  :)  So I kept putting it off.  Then one day after watching the Cricut infomercial of the lady using the vinyl I got inspired.  I must have seen that show a million times.  Here's what I made.  Sweet and simple.  They're placed over the boys' artwork. I used the "Tear Drop" font cartridge for the word "Create"  and I used the Home Accents solutions cartridge for the others.  I highly recommend using the transfer tape.  I don't think I would've been able to place one letter at a time.  It would have taken forever.  :)

Sneak Peek!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Hope you're all having a wonderful day.  Just a quick note to show you a sneak peek of a wedding/honeymoon album I'm making.  I can't wait to show you the rest!!  I used the sweethearts cart.  The swirl is from Tim Holtz.  I misted it to give it that nice copper shimmer.  Have a great day and Happy Scrappin"
