Artful Mail Groupies Mini Album Swap

Hi Everybody,

Just sharing the mini album I made for swap at Artful Mail Groupies on Facebook.  Because I had to mail this off internationally and was in a bit of a rush to make the PO, I forgot to take up-close pictures but I did manage to pull together this video of the album.

To watch Directly on YouTube click here

I cut my bags in half and trimmed them down so that from one bag I have two 4.25" x 4.75" pieces.

My large photo mats were cut at 4.25" x 4 5/8"
Designer paper was cut at 4" x 4 3/8"
Small tags cut at 2.75" x 4 5/8"
Small tag designer paper 2.75" x 4.5"

I used a method similar to the "hidden hinge" method by Kathy Orta

Practical Scrapper Shaped Card Project

Hi Everybody,

Today I want to share with you a project for Practical Scrappers.  The challenge was to create a shaped card.  So I Decided to try something a little different.  For my shaped card project I chose a digital stamp from Melonheadz, colored it up with my Copics, cut it out and then traced the shape and cut out the bigger size onto card stock.  Now I know those who are savvy enough can cut this using their die cutter, I just haven't tried it out on mine yet.

I also turned my card into an easel card so that it can stand on its own.  Now I know this is an Earth Day stamp but I just loved the image and thought it would be perfectly paired with Scripture verse John 3:16.  “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life."

Isn't it cute!!  So thats all for today. I had such a blast making this card and I love how any stamp can be turned into a card super easily!!

Be sure to check out the other project for some great ideas and inspiration.

Okay everyone, I will see you all next time.
