Graphic 45 baby boy card

Graphic 45 Little Darling paper is so sweet.  I can sit and create for hours without having to stop.
I created this card for our Vice Principle at school who's wife just had a new baby boy.
I fussy cut around some of the images, used Melissa Frances frame and Recollection flowers for embellishments.  The ribbon came from Etsy and the die cuts are Spellbinders and Marianne dies.
I used the front page of the pad for the front of the envelope box and a coordinating base.  I will hand it too him so I didn't need to worry about mailing it.

Graphic 45 Garden Album

Graphic 45 paper scrapbook for a dear friend.
I just love the Secret Garden papers from Graphic 45.  I wanted to create a memory book for a friend and these papers were just perfect.  I hand-made all the flowers and used the spellbinders nestabilities to help with the matting for the pictures.  I used liquid pearls for accents and Cheery Lynn flourish for the pages.
 I hope this album gives you ideas and enjoyment. :) 

First page of the book.  

2nd page.  A photo can be slipped under the band to help with size.
3rd page.
I embossed some lavender paper and sanded it lightly of the top.
Inside the pocket are places to add writing or pictures.

I thought the embossing plate looked like a basket weave.

I used the spellbinder rose die cuts with this paper.  Martha Stewart butterfly punches were also used throughout the album.

I decided to mod podge the back as it would wear better with time.
