Thinking of You! Embossing on Vellum

Hi Everyone:

Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday so far.  It's is hot here in Colorado, 91 degrees!!  Summer is definitely here and that is why I'm staying inside and being creative!

Today's card I used the technique of embossing on vellum.  I used my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Embossing folder and ran it through causing this great effect.

The color inspiration came from the designer paper I used as the background.  I used the Posy Punch stamp set from Stampin' Up for the flower in the corner with my Fried Brick distressing ink from Tim Holtz.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it!

Talk to you soon!

WISH!!! Paper Bag Mini Album

So after watching tons of tutorials on youtube for the Paper Bag Mini Album, I actually couldn't find just one I liked.  So after taking some notes of what I liked and disliked, I finally came up with a version of my own.

I used the paper from a clearance Melody Ross 8X8 paper pad that I had been hoarding for something special and I guess today was the day to use it.  I think it turned out pretty well.  I would do my own video tutorial on this, but it literally took me almost 5 hours to put this together the way I liked!!  Maybe one day......

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great weekend!!

P.S.  Here is the link to the video for the album.  It's not a tutorial, but it shows what I used and the inside of the album.  Enjoy!!
