Cute Card Thursday - Banish the Blues

*FOR SALE - email me (found under my complete profile). 
** Albums of same design can be made to order - all themes considered.

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Banish the Blues'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 


I have caught the 'mini album' bug recently and am loving watching all the youtube videos and trying out the different design. I love this design for a mini album and would like to thank My Sister's Scrapper for the tutorial on this - her video can be found here:

This album measures 6" x 6" with a 3" spine. The cover is made from medium weight chipboard. 
I used Echo Park's 'Bundle of Joy A New Addition' and 'Sweet Baby Boy' collection packs along with ribbon from my stash.




The first double page spread consists of lots of areas to journal and add pictures. The flaps are magnetized so stay closed and the stickers on the edges of the photo mats have been left open so that you are able to slide your photos behind them.


The second page has a spot for journaling and some cut apart cards for adding photos behind a belly band. More photos can fit behind this band.




The next page has another magnetized flap which opens to reveal another photo mat and journal spot. The following page is made up of 2 pocket flaps, containing 2 pull outs for journaling and photos, with another photo mat opposite.



There is another magnetized flap which opens to reveal a photo mat and journal spot. The opposite page has a twine fastening to a cute flap booklet. 



 There is another belly band with cut apart cards for photos and journalling, with more room to add photos behind the band. The small flap on the opposite page is magnetized and open to reveal a small pocket.



The final page consists of a flap containing 2 tags, a photo mat and journalling spot. A pocket and tick spot completes the album on the final page.




All pages contain a pocket to the side, containing a pull out for more memories. 


There is plenty of room in this album to add photographs and journalling to cherish all of those precious memories of your special addition to the family.

We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps, a great prize as always! 

Hope you can join us!


Thanks for looking.
Happy crafting x

Without further ado, let me share a couple more projects I created with this amazing kit. There are some fun sentiments in this kit and I must admit to playing 'guess the movie' with my daughter for some of these. Madagascar is one of my favorites and I just love this saying! I decided I wanted the penguins to stand out on this card and so did some partial die cutting.

I stamped the penguins onto a white panel measuring 4.25" x 5.5" and only partially die cut them, allowing them to stand up from the 'snowbank'. I used my craft knife to cut in between them and finish off the hill.

I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock using Versamark Watermark ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then hand cut this into a banner shape. I adhered this onto the front of the card and added some snowflakes from the stamp set using grey ink.


I adhered some of the patterned paper from the 'Chilly' paper pack inside the card so it highlighted the penguins on the front of the card.


A simple but fun design.


And my last card:


A super quick and easy card to make. I die cut a stitched square using an MFT die and then cut out a hole in the centre. I used the patterned paper for the kit to back the hole and added the sentiment to a banner. I added a little color to the penguin and ice, die cut them using the coordinating dies and then added them to the square panel. This was all adhered to a square white card base!

There are so many fun possibilities with these stamps, dies, papers and goodies!
Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!

Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit. The 'Chilly' paper collection included in the kit is full of bright, fun papers. I loved the penguin papers and wanted these to be the focus of my card.

I made a standard A2 card base from white cardstock (4.25" x 5.5") and added a black panel onto the top. I cut the patterned paper down to 3.75" x 5" and added this on top. I die cut the word 'special' from the kit and added it to a strip of black cardstock. I used a white gel pen to write 'you are' and then adhered this strip onto some vellum. I added this to the front of the card and voila! Finished!

There are so many fun possibilities with these stamps, dies, papers and goodies!
Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!
