Hi Everyone!
 I hope you are having a wonderful week and ready for the weekend!
I attended a baby shower this past Wednesday for two ladies in our church.
One mom already had her beautiful baby girl and the other was/is still a mom-to-be.
She doesn't know what she is having (by choice.)
 I made each one of them a mini album as part of our group gift.
This is the Baby Girl Mini Album.

Pages 1 and 2

Pages 3 and 4

 Pages 5 and 6

Pages 7 and 8
 Pages 9 and 10
 Side of the Album
I was surprised that it really didn't end up thick at all. :)

 The front and back pages.
I was so happy to finally be able to use my Cinch!
I used tons of different embellishments on this book.
The "baby" on the front cover is from
The paper is K and Co. Itsy Bitsy baby girl stack.
If you want to know anything that I used, don't be afraid to ask :)
These are paper bag albums. I used this Tutorial and it was really easy and fun to make.

Hi Friends! 
Last Tuesday, My hubby and I celebrated our 10 year wedding Anniversary.
This is the card I made to give him with his gift.
The past couple of year that I have been a cardmaker/paper crafter, I try to make his card with the gift that goes along with that anniversary.
Last year was wood and this year was Tin/ Aluminum.
So of course I had to cut up an aluminum can to use as an embellishment! 
He has a mustache and beard that he grew just for me because I love the look on him and I think its super sexy ( on him that is ;) )
So I knew I had to include a mustache on his card and it helps with the "I'm terrible with Masculine cards!"
The sentiment reads "To my 'Stache-tastic Man".

-Card Recipe-
Cartridge- Paperdoll dress up
Die- Spellbinders Classic Hearts
Embossing Folder- Distressed Stripes (cuttlebug)

Stamps- Martha Stewart San Serif Alphabet
Ink- Chocolate Chip (Su!)
Paper- Echo Park Times & Seasons, Old Olive(Su!), Kraft (Recollections)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and maybe even Crafty day! ;)
