Cardztv 3D Design Team Challenge - It's a baby!

It seems that nothing brings as
much joy to use females as a new baby!
As the manager of medical office,
I can tell you we all turn to mush when a 
newborn comes in for their first weight 
check!  We all come in to look at that sweet
thing and comment how "cute" they are --
seriously we are nuts!

Today we are celebrating babies
by creating a 3D project with babies
in mind.

Today I'm going to share with you my
Skinny Mini album perfect for capturing
my new granddaughter's 1st summer.


I picked cute pink paper and teamed
it up with soft green and delicate purple.


The idea for this Skinny Mini came from My Sister's 
Scrapper YouTube channel.  Search Youtube and you
will find a wealth of information on Ginger's
awesome mini albums.


I used a die from My Creative Time to make
the photo and journal cards.
I LOVE THIS DIE!
For anyone who makes mini albums
or scrapbooks, it's a must!


Lots of real estate for those summer pics!


I used a Stampin Up embossing folder to 
cut out the butterflies and then added some 
rhinestones for sparkle.

Here's a video giving you a better
look at the album.



I used three sets of Cardztv stamps for the perfect
addition to my album.

FUN IN THE SUN
THINK SPRING

I hope you enjoyed my project!  Head back to
Cardztv to join in on the challenge!

It's a 3D St. Patrick's Day Challenge for Cardztv!

Welcome to my blog!
Today we have the fun assignment
from Mary at Cardztv to create a
3D project.  I love making 3D projects
and am thrilled to be on this team.

If you are a follower of my blog, you
know I like to make treats!  What better
treat for St. Patrick's day than chocolate?


I love using the nuggets!  I have them all the
time in my home because they make an easy treat
bag look awesome!  Cute a slip of paper 1x3 inches
and tape on the bottom of your nugget.  Mix and match
your papers and you won't believe how easy this
is to do.  I LOVE Trendy Twine and the last time
I purchased twine, I saw they had these GREAT tubes
just perfect for the nuggets.  Of course, they needed
to be added to my order.

I used the Cameo print and cut feature to create
the two little bears.  The bears are popped up and layered
on two pieces of card stock, using the darker green for
for a background.  Trendy Twine is used at the top
of the shape for a nice pop of color.
I used Cardztv St Patrick's
Day stamps to finish off my sentiments.

Didn't this come out cute???



Head on over to Cardztv to join in the fun!
The winner, drawn by random.org will win
a set of Mary's stamps.



Good Luck!

Mimi
