Mojo Monday 485

Happy Friday! I finally had a break from midterms , so I wanted to get crafty. I decided to play along with this week's sketch challenge at Mojo Monday for some inspiration. Here is the current sketch:

I decided to make a shaker banner for my card...

I used an older paper collection from Basic Grey called  Konichiwa. I love the Japanese inspired florals and the colour combo. I stitched an piece of acetate to a banner made from the collection and added sequins ad glitter before sealing it up. The bakers twine is from October Afternoon. The sentiment and birthday cake are from Verve Stamps Big Wish stamp set. I colored the cake with my Prisma pencils and added a few dimensionals to make it pop a little, with a few Prima mini flowers for a little something extra.
Omigosh, I really enjoyed making this card... it's been so long since I've had time to do any sort of crafting!!! I'm already looking for another challenge to get my creative mojo going!!!

Go check out Mojo Monday for this great sketch and to see the awesome entries for this week's sketch! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!!

G45 Raining Cats and Dogs mini album

Hi all! I have a mini album to share with you today. I haven't  had much time to do much crafting since I went back to college, but during the break between semesters I did manage to finish a few minis. For tis mini I used a tutorial from Ginger at My Sister's Scrapper. She has a ton of great tutorials on her blog and YouTube channel for mini albums and other awesome papercrafts...make sure you visit her blog and channel!. I've made a few of hers so far and I love how quick they come together! This mini made following her Trifold tutorial ( click here to go to her tutorial). I used Graphic 45 raining Cats& Dogs paper collection and ephemera. I only had a few sheets of this collection, but it was enough to make a super cute mini.

I decorated the cover with a 4X6 cutout and chipboard elements from the collection and some flowers from my stash.

Here's a close up of the front cover.

There are only two pages but they hold a bunch of photos! I love the angled pocket on the inside cover.

I made an envelope from WRMK Punch Board for the "Cats Meow" insert.. it's perfect for holding loose photos.

The inside...

..with pics of my cats!

This is the other page and back inside cover.

Each page has a top loading this pic my  dog "graduating" from puppy school"! The paw is from a Cricut cartridge ( can't remember which one!) that I had cut long ago , just waiting to be used!

The back cover. The album is held together with an elastic band.

I have a few more albums finished... I hope to share them soon!
Thanks for stopping by blog today!
