~* Butterfly Garden Mini Album *~

Aloha Everyone!

Here is a mini album I made for my Mom using the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection. I love the papers, they are so pretty! I started off with combining pages from two Maya Road Scallop Square albums. I used Acrylic pages for my front and back covers and then I used the Kraft and Chipboard pieces in between. There are a total of 6 pieces. I distressed the edges of all the designer papers and inked them up with Distress Inks. The interior pages are also inked up. I used a lot of trims, laces, a couple of my stickpins, buttons, burlap twine and trim, Prima baby roses and fabric roses, Dear Lizzy metal embellishments, Prima butterfly, trinket pearls, a Glitz frame stamp, and the beautiful images from the Collection.

I am entering this project into the Pixie Dust Paperie July Challenge, which is all about Butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely week!

*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

~* Bundle of Love ~ Baby Boy D Mini Album *~

Hi Everyone!

Just stopping in to say hi to you lovely ladies!

I made this little baby boy mini for my bloggie friend, Rose, from Rose's World. She recently had a baby boy and I wanted to send her a little something. I created this little 4"x4" mini from 130# white cardstock, which I covered with K&Company Itsy Bitsy Baby Boy designer paper. This is one of my fave little boy paper stacks...finally got to dive into it and use some :)! The book is bound using my Cinch.

I embellished the cover with a button, white Epoxy Accents, Glossy Accents, and also cut out the "Baby," "Boy," and "D" from the designer paper and popped it up on dimensional tape and added Glossy Accents and Epoxy Accents. The pages are lightly accented. Babies like to play with ribbon loops so I added some on the pages. I added some buttons, layered buttons, themed buttons, and Glossy Accents. I had a lot of fun creating this little mini. I hope you like it, Rose :)!

Hope you all have a wonderful week! This week is one of my most hectic weeks so far! Hope everything goes smoothly ;p'.

BIG *hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

~* Baby Girl Dress Mini Album *~

Aloha Everyone!

Here is the Baby Girl Dress Mini Album that I mentioned to you about in my other post. I made it for my friend who is expecting a baby girl in a month or so. I used the Sizzix Dress die and the paper collection is K&Company's Itsy Bitsy Baby Girl.

On the cover, sorry, the photo doesn't clearly show the two mini diaper pins hanging from the ribbon binding. I added ribbon and bows at the top of the dress along with buttons. The flower is part of the die, I colored it in with Copics (it was cut from patterned paper, but I wanted to fill in the white area to add more color), added Stickles and a flower bling. There are two pretty trims along with white enamel accents that I used to make a design. The letters are Thickers.

The other pages consist of trims, images I fuss-cut and added glossy accents to, a butterfly and satin flower embellie, giraffe button, little flowers with enamel accent centers, and designs I drew with enamel accents.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

~* Mimi at the Cafe *~

Happy Saturday!

Was super inspired to create this card for the Penny Black challenge using Circles. I used my new stamp set called Mimi in Paris. Isn't she a cutie :)? Love the French culture~wish I remembered my French ;p'.

I created this circle card with my Nesties. The blue circle was colored using Distress Ink and I added Stickles in Frosted Lace to tone it down a little. I then edged the next circle with Distress Ink and added the pretty pink trim. The last circle, I inked up with two different Distress Inks and then popped up the image that I colored with my Copics on it. The little sign is also from the set. I added a little pink polka dot bow to Mimi's hat and some tiny Primas that I added Gold Stickles to. I also edge the circle with Gold Stickles. Last, I added a little butterfly that I cut from a trim.

I had a lot of fun playing this morning! Hope I squeeze in some more time to play this weekend! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!

~* Princess "R" Altered Wood Mirror *~

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're having a great week! Yay, it's almost Friday (or it is in some places already)! Happy Aloha Friday :)!

Here is an altered wood mirror that I made for a friend last month. I painted it with Metallic Pearl White paint and embellished away. I added some paper flowers that I had added Stickles to the edges and my homemade stickpins. I also added dew drops that I added Stickles behind, some plastic flowers, trim, and lots of pearls and bling.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend! I will be posting my baby girl dress mini album that I finished last weekend soon!

*hugs* and Much aloha to you always~!
