Customized 6x6 Album

Hey everyone! I finally got a chance to get some pictures of a project I finished a while ago uploaded to my computer. One of my niece's who is also my Goddaughter was confirmed recently and I didn't want to just make a card for her. I had a couple of these cheap 6x6 scrapbook albums that I had bought a while ago that had kind of a fall design on the cover. I got this wonderful idea to take some of my Recollections Animal Printed Cardstock and cover the album with it. My niece's favorite color is bright/neon green so that is the main color I went with.

I decided to add some pink ribbon, a pink flower and a pink "S" which is the first letter of my niece's name to personalize it a little bit for her. I also added a handwritten note on the inside.

I added some faux stitching to the "S" with my white jelly roll pen to match the white stitching on the pink ribbon.

I added some stickles to the center of the flower and some diamond bling to the corners of the front cover.

I cut down and inserted scrapbook papers to the inside of the album so she can just stick her favorite pictures on the pages.

I really like how it turned out. I will be making a matching card to go with it and I'll take a picture of that too and post it later. I need to get this sent off to her soon! Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Thankful Thursday Design Team ~ Summer Movie

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been MIA since our last Thankful Thursday challenge, but I've been dealing with a lot at home. Anyway, it's that time again. Todays challenge is to make a project about your favorite family movie. This challenge was extremely difficult for me. Everytime I thought of a movie, I couldn't think of a project to make to go with it. I thought of lots of projects to make, but couldn't figure out how to incorporate a movie theme into it. Well, I called on some friends for help and finally came up with something. Thanks guys!

I went with the movie Cars and since my boys are all older and not really into Cars (the movies) anymore, I decided to make this project for a friends son. Surprise Gunnar! This is a decoration for him to hang on his bedroom door or wall. He loves Cars so I knew I had to make it for him. I made the sign in the shape of a highway sign and cut it out of foam board which is really hard to cut with scissors so I had to carefully use my X-acto knife. I used my Cricut to cut out his name and the word "room" and my eleven year old colored the words, McQueen, and Mater.

I used Mod Podge over the sign and words and used pop dots to pop up the Mater and McQueen. I also used ribbon to be able to hang it up. I hope he likes it. Ben and I put our hearts and souls into it. :)

Thanks for stopping by everyone and I hope you go back to Crazy About Cricut's blog and check out the other design team members projects and also make a project of your own and link it back to Crazy About Cricut's blog. Leave me a comment if you'd like and if you aren't a follower yet, I love getting new followers. Leave me a link back to your blog so I can follow you too! Have a great Thursday!

Thankful Thursday Design Team ~ Red/White/Blue

Hey everyone! Welcome back! It's that time again. Thankful Thursday Design Team Day. Today we were suppose to do a project with red, white and blue and since my original planned project failed miserably, I decided to throw together a quick card using a size I've never made before. This card fits in a business size envelope. I think it turned out pretty good. I still plan to finish up the failed project (I'm determined) and get it posted on here eventually so keep checking back. I also have a couple of other projects in the works that I will be posting soon. Thanks for stopping by.
