First I have a photo of the mini album that I made for my sister. I figured with all the celebrating this weekend, she would have alot of photo's. What better way to store them than in a cute mini?
It's actually a small photo album that I have had since I was like 5, I just covered it in PP. I still have to put some ribbon around the edges to cover the paper tear on the top right side. When it tore, my BF asked me what I was going to do now and I told him "It's not a mistake, it's an oppertunity to embellish." He thought it was the funniest thing he ever hear! My co-worker and I found that quote online at a scrapbooking tee store. Anywho.Now I have a few cards to share with you. This is a simple Valentines Day card that I made folowing an example I saw in the Feb 2009 CK. It's from Becky's Sketch. I simply punched a few circles out of some PP scraps that I had in my scrapbox. Then I diecut the word love using my cricut. The rest of the card I did freehand using a black marker. To make the lines semi-straight (because I am a perfectionist) I used a ruler to show me what a straight line would be, then drew it freehand next to the ruler.
This next card is another really simple card using the George and the Jasmine cartridges for the cricut.
