Graduation Mini Album Peony Blooms

My heart just can’t handle all the growing up and milestones my babies are going through this year! ¬†My BABY girl Sadie is starting middle school in a couple of weeks. Be still my heart!!! Sadie graduated fifth grade in June and I’m so behind on my scrapbooking that I’ve decided mini albums for the BIG events are on the way to go for now!

I fell in love with a card from justgivemestamps.typepad.com that had six circle images and I had to give it a try with this cute mini! All products used are from Fun Stampers Journey. ¬†Peony Blooms is the first new stamp set I ordered from the new annual catalog that went live on July 1 and I’ve certainly been giving it a workout! ¬†The flowers are colored using the Journey Watercolor Splash pencils, which are divine! ¬†Album is cut at ¬†6 1/4″x 5″ I scored at 3/4″ and punched 2 holes and used the black licorice ribbon to bind the pages together.

Hope you enjoy this project and hope you have a blessed day!

My Sweet Brooke’s Prom Album (part 1)

I hope ya’ll are ready to get bombarded with senior year projects as my sweet baby girl (my middle child) Brooke is graduating this coming year! She is dual enrolled in high school and college for the fall. She finishes high school in January 2018 but will walk the stage in June 2018. ¬†My 21 year old son Britt graduated in 2015 and my baby girl Sadie starts middle school this week and my step son Tyler just turned 29 and is MARRIED!! ¬†I’m officially getting old. ¬†I’m so not ready for Brooke to graduate! She is so full of plans and is excited about college and leaving the nest all while I’m crying don’t grow up so fast! It’s tradition in my family and with my church family to have a big graduation party in honor of our graduates. ¬†I went all out for my son’s and plan to with my baby girl too. ¬†I’m doing a four part series of albums for her as a gift and to display at the party. This first one is her prom album, the second will be her senior portraits and the third will be the actual graduation day pictures. ¬†I’ll also be doing one for her to add her own pictures and thoughts to with her and her friends.

She fell in love with this Romantic Journey Prints paper pack from Fun Stampers Journey and I was shocked as my girl is usually not into florals.  She loved the vintage vibe to this collection and ADORED the vintage map print. She even liked the flowers because she said they were BOLD and not too girly pink LOL.

I found a fantastic youtube video showing a waterfall folio album constructed ONLY from chipboard and card stock and I knew that was the direction I wanted to go in. ¬†I had to modify to accomodate 4×6 photos because I refuse to shrink my pictures! ¬†The cover measures 7″x9″x1″.

I hope you enjoy this project and be on the lookout for the finished album as I’m not done with the cover (have to order some black satin FSJ ribbon). ¬†Hope you have a blessed day!

Peony Blooms Thinking of You

I’m in love with the Peony Blooms stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey 2017-2018 catalog and the smallest flower is quickly becoming my favorite stamp! This is another one layer card. ¬†I made the back ground with random stamping. The flowers are die cut with circle dies and just crumpled up and sponged with black licorice ink. ¬†I used my scissors to flag the end of the banner and the leaves are die cut with a new host exclusive die called Mystic Vine (ask me how to earn it!!)

I created this card in response to a challenge with the Great Outdoors @  The Paper Players Challenge Blog. Make sure to drop in there and play along! This challenge runs through Friday, August 11th, noon PST time!
