SU Brag Book

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have another scrapbook to share with you.  This is one that I made for myself! Check out this fun little mini album I created.......
I used the Stampin' UP! Mini Memories Simply Created Album Kit (Page 31 of the Celebrate the Everyday Catalog). 
The album is held together with two binder rings.........And I added LOTS of Stampin' UP! Ribbon to those rings to really pretty up my album.
My cover was embellished with the help of my Cricut Machine........This title says it all!
And on the inside of my album, there are ENDLESS pictures of the guys I LOVE!
The kit comes with all the Chipboard Covers, double-sided papers, vellum sheets, envelopes, bags, doilies, and embellishments that I needed to create this SERIOUS work-of-art.
I added my pictures.......
Some Ribbon......
LOTS of journaling......
Simple photo mats for my ADORABLE pictures.....
And the rest was left up to my imagination!
There are pages of my (adult) kids......
And speaking of kids......Aren't these some GREAT looking kids!
And the greatness didn't stop at the adult kids......
My grandkids are the ones who really steal this album!
I created some hidden pockets from the bags that were included in this kit.
And all I needed to do was add some ribbon to the ends of the photo and that ribbon acts like a pull for the pictures.
I love everything about this album.
I'm especially loving all the different ways I was able to create hidden journal cards.
Here's one that just flips up to reveal the message for that page.
And one of my favorite pages.......
Was adding this "pull here" tab........
And the journal card is tucked inside this pocket.
There is also another photo/journal card that is tucked inside this envelope.
And it pulls out to reveal a picture of Twoie!
And speaking of Twoie........
Here he is ready for his photo-shoot for the pizza ad.
This page of Twoie is special.......
And it deserved a special little journal card that flapped down to somewhat hide the journaling.
Each page captured a photo......
And some type of journal message about that photo.
And what would my album be if it didn't include a picture of me.....along with.....
My Jack.
And the very last page of my album was completely a journaling page.  
I'm blessed beyond words to have such a loving and caring family......And there isn't a day that goes by that I don't count my blessings......EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a Christmas Flip Book that I made.............Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Soccer Album for Hailey

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have a special scrapbooking project to share with you.  It's a Soccer Album I created for my granddaughter Hailey.  She is a BIG soccer player and I just knew this would be the perfect album to make for her.  I plan to give her this album in August when I go back to Wisconsin to visit.

Here is the album I made........
Seriously has the shape and texture of a real soccer ball.
The inside pages are all decorated with soccer appropriate paper......
And embellishments.......
To make it the perfect keepsake treasure for Hailey.
There is plenty of space for her to use as a scrapbook......
Or if she wants to use it as a keepsake book for her team......
There's plenty of space for her team to sign the book and jot down notes for Hailey.
I think this is the perfect spot for a team photo......Or a picture of Hailey scoring one of those MANY goals that she has completed for her team.
Just know Hailey is going to flip-out when she sees this book......and know it will be something she will treasure for a long long time.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a fun little SU Brag Book I made............Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

3x3 Purse

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have a darling little purse to share with you........One that I also created for my May Stamp Camp door prize.
This purse was made with Real Red Cardstock and decorated with the flower from the new "So Very Happy" stamp set.  I used white embossing powder for each of the flowers.......creating a gorgeous DSP pattern for the front and the back of my purse.

I used a retired punch from Stampin' UP! to create the decorative element for the ribbon handles to hang from.
Inside my purse I made six matching 3x3 cards.........
And used the new "Work of Art" stamp set for each of the 3x3 cards.  I used coordinating Stampin' UP! embossing powder for each of the cards......and added a coordinating 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon for the front of each of my cards.
Here's all six notecards tucked inside my pretty red purse.
This little purse will make the perfect gift for that someone special this summer!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a Soccer Album I made for Hailey.............Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
