B is for birthday

Morning all! I made this birthday card for my dad a few weeks ago. I love these chipboard shapes from making memories whimsy collection. I was in target a few weeks ago and they had a lot of scrapbook things on clearance and so I picked up these sets. One set was all chipboard shpaes and frames and one set was diecuts, buttons, flowers and chipboard letters. I am really into distressing right now as you can tell. I like the way it adds dimension to a project. Hope you all enjoy and have a good rest of the week.

Manila file folder album

Hi blog readers! Friday night we had card club and Nancy had some wonderful ideas that we made. One of the ideas she showed us to make later was a file folder album. You use a manila office file and fold it and then add papers, embellishments and pictures to it to make a little album. It looked like it wold take quiet sometime to put together but was amazingly quick to put together. I made a christmas one to start and loved the way it turned out so I decided to share so pictures of the almost finished product. I do still need to add photos but will do that at a later date when I decide who to give it to. Have a wonderful day!!!!
