TeddyBo Tuesday!! Challenge Card

Hello Everyone! Im Back!!! After taken a little time off to get my son off to college and pull myself together from it all....just im time for this weeks Teddybo Challenge! Our challenge was to do a black and white card with another color! I chose RED.  I used this new teddybo image, isnt she so cute!? I used a combination of a red promarker and then my colored pencils and OMS for the black/grey in the image!
I am recovering from the fact that my heart is broken that i had to take my son 6 hours from here and drop him off....its just against a mothers nature to do that! It will take some time to get used to it! Thank goodness for text and facebook! I dont think i could survive if not for them! LOL Thanks for stopping by!

Remembering These Special Times With You.....

 Vintage themed album, using Prima Printery Collection...love that paper.  I got on a kick after getting an order for a wedding album of making up a few more albums to have on hand. I love vintage style the best and i wanted to make another one ! I used the words on the paper saying REmembering Theses Special Times With You....then Our Life in chipboard, i mod podged on the paper so it would be coordinated.  Aged the edges and pages with some Distress Ink, and Machine stitched through out, i love the way it makes an album feel. It seems more substantial and real. I took some toule and aged it with some of my glimmer mists and then used a heat gun to dry them...it melted in a few places but i love that...gives it more of an old feel.  Lots of lace and ribbon as well.
 Pocket pages and large tags for pictures and journaling, or picture placements with journaling areas...how fun...accented with ric rack and prima flowers and stickles for some sparkle...
 I have this pretty velvet ribbon, i ordered by the yard from A Cherry On Top...its so cute, dont you think...? i had to use it as trim to these placements...
 lots of toule, hope im spelling that right....lage picture placement here all jazzed up, and then a huge pocket page that i cut out along one of the papers with a flower boarder...i added stickles to it and some toule and few brads and made a big pocket for a large tag.  Another picture placement and a little journaling tag too!
 2 large pockets that can be accessed top or side...great to tuck a few pictures in behind the tags..tags have places for pictures and journaling as well.

large picture placement with a journaling back ground, and 2 other journaling places on the last page. If you noticed i didnt fill this album with words..., sentiments, sayings...what have you..i thought that it didnt need it...i also thought, it would be a great way for someone to make it their own by adding what ever they want...finish it up..what ever or leave it like it is with your own pics and journaling.. 2 more pull out pages in the side pockets for more journaling and pics!
Thanks for stopping by! i have 2 baby albums i will be starting now and will post when im through! Also Darcy Diaries is coming up ......be back for that too!

U & Me Special Order Album

 Had fun with this album , love using chipboard letters for more demention and adding the coordinating papers to them to make them more personalized for the album. I used some modeling compound on the chipboard key to add some texure and some stickles for some shine!This paper set is one of my favorites, i just love it, the creams, golds, browns and blacks and auqa blue is so pretty. It is Lost and Found 2 from My Minds Eye. I had some vintage velvet ribbon in the gold color , ffound at the local thrift store, some toule and some pretty check with auqa and browns in it.  Cant see in this phoot but there are some prima flowers with buttons, gems and pearls. The tab can be where the couples name can go or the date of their wedding.
 A picture page with a tab adorned with some pearls, prima flower with matching button, together sticker. All through the album is machine sewn, and each layout has an outline with my gellyroll pen, clear star . Second page has a pocket page with a large tag, big enough for a picture and journaling on the back , pretty lace flowers in the front of the pocket and a chipboard butterfly in matching papers adorns the tag.
 2 large picture pages with handmade photo tabs, and cute strips with toule and prima flowers with jems to hold the picture in as well. a rub on adorns the page, you make my love overflow.
 2 large pocket pages with large tags, the pockets are adorned with the pretty flower lace again...and pearls here and there with 2 rub ons , Forever and all my love on the other page. The tags have room for pics and journaling 2 more chipboard butterflies in matching papers on each tag.
 love these 2 pages , there is a little flap for journaling and it says Soulmate when you open it up, just undo the string from around the brad to open it up. page also decorated with prima flower and flatbacked pearls. The next page is a little placement for a picture with 2 handmade tabs machine sew in for sturdiness and charm...a tag pulls out from behind to journal on. more pearls and a prima flower to this page as well.
Love this shapes with the scalloped edge, I dont have many die cuts so i make do with what i do have, this shape was the shape of the package that the chipboard butterflies came in..i used it to trace the shape for something different ! prima flowers , buttons, jems and flatbacked pearls on both pages, a forever stick on the left and a love rubon on the last. Large tag with some pearls and pretty toule.
I had so much fun doing this album. When you love the papers your working with it really helps!
Thanks for stopping by!
