Mini Album Swaps (FB Group) Chipboard Swap

Hi Everyone,

WOW has a month gone by already?  Well I am 34 weeks along and counting down to her arrival. I have been afflicted with every illness that has gone around in the last 8 months and have been feeling miserable.  Just got finished with the flu and I am glad to see it go.  This kid will be immune to everything under the sun!!

Anywho.  I joined in a partner swap over at Mini Album Swaps Group on FB and this was a chipboard mini swap.  So today I am sharing with you the album I made for my partner.  I pray she likes it.  She didn't have anything in particular that she wanted, it was my choice, but she did same she loves pinks of all shades; so here is the mini.

Lots of Photos: You have been warned!!

Post Valentines Card

Hi Everyone,

I was asked to make some Valentine's card for a woman at my church for her little girl's class party.  She attends a Christian schooland the theme of this Valentine's Day was God's Perfect Love.  She wanted a card that of course uses the theme but would have stars by her daughter's name.  So I made some prototypes and her daughter picked out the one she liked.  Here is the finished card that her daughter chose.



Now I have to admit, this card was not my first choice but she loved the sparkle on the heart!!

I stamped some hearts on the inside of the card where she (the daughter) would write her name.  I did go back and add some stars around the hearts but I took these pics before the stars and I forgot to snap a pic after.  Chalk it up to baby brain ;) .

All in all I think it is really simple, and cute, and I do love the glitter star!!

I printed the sentiment in gray ink on the computer and then stamped the hearts around the die cut glitter heart.  Quick and Easy!

A Bit of Drama:   Now if any of you remember I am sticking to my challenge of not buying anything new.  Well I didnt have enough of this pink color for the card base so I had to buy some more of the Recollections paper pack.  Well the stack I had and the stack that I bought with the same name did not contain the same pick card stock as it had before.  So I wound up buying 3 card stock packs to try and find the correct pink shade. (I was not happy).  So now I am finding ways to use it up.


So there you have it.  Thanks everyone for sharing your time with me.  I will blog with you all again soon.

Kelli
