Frank Garcia Mini Album Parcel Club - Home Again

Hello, crafty friends!!!

I have been wanting to share this mini album with you all! It is a kit provided by the amazing Frank Garcia as part of his Mini Album Parcel Club. I love that he provides step-by step instructions on how to complete the album and the materials are also included. You can either follow the step-by-step directions, or simply use the guide as inspiration and make it your own. Because the ephemera and the Home Again papers didn't really go with my plan to use the album for my travel photos, I have decided to do my own page designs.

My new crafty friend, Kristianne, has leftover papers and ephemera from the Home Again collection and she sent me beautiful handmade embellishments. She is so amazing, very creative and talented. She also has a YouTube channel where she shows how to make embellishments and other craft ideas. So, thank you very much, Kristianne. You are very generous and so kind to make all the paper pretties for my album. You've definitely helped me finish this album in no time! xoxo!!!

Okay guys, here are some photos:

 Look how chunky this album is!!! I love it so much!

Back of the album:

Here are the pages:

I made a cascading feature so that I can add a lot of photos.

Kristianne even sent me extra ephemera and a roll of washi tape, which I used to tape down some of the photos. Isn't she the best?! You have to see all the goodies she made for me - click here.

Another cascading layout, this time I used a paperclip to keep the pages together:

I made a pocket for all the extra photos and journaling that I wasn't able to fit in the album. I think it makes for a fun, interactive element. 

Here is the album again. I hope you enjoyed it! Big thank you, once again, to Frank Garcia for making this beautiful album kit available... and Kristianne for the gorgeous embellishments!!!

With my leftover papers and ephemera from the kit, I made some cards for a friend.

I hope you enjoy my crafts and you are inspired to create today!!!

Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy  9th birthday, PPP!  Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.  For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for inter

Pretty Pink Posh March 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started with a 4.5” square white cardstock and I ink blended through the Layered Carrots Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks.  Layer A: Dried Marigold Layer B: Spiced Marmalade Layer C: Twisted Citron I then matted this stenciled panel on a 5” square cardstock that I ink blended with Spiced Marmalade. For added interest, I sprayed this larger panel with water that has a bit of white ink.  Next, I cut the dies from the Winter Mug Dies and the new Easter Mug Additions Dies in white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and Distress Oxide Inks. The blue bunny mug also got a print from the Mini Grid Stencil . Before foam mounting the mug, I placed a sheet of vellum to soften the carrot background and I also stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink.  Here are the Copic markers I used for the mini eggs: BG70, R00, V000, Y11, YG61, YR000 I embellished the card with Pi
