Fantabulous cricut mini album challenge
So, I am all about the challenges right now, seems like im doing one almost every day, their fun, and they really are helping me do things that I might not normally do, AND helping me use up lots of the paper that I really need to use before I can allow myself to buy more. :)
This week over at Fantabulous Cricut, animal shaped mini albums was the challenge. I dont really have any carts that are animal specific, so I improvised, I used an owl, giraffe, and frog from the paisley cart, and a cat from the mini monsters cart.
Uhm, I LOVE this frog! The paper is from a Halloween stack and is already glittered. The stripes are from a recylced paper group, and the dot of course is bazzill swiss dot. I used cheap satin ribbon from M's and a little bit of green ink. OH! and there are two teeny tiny star buttons up in the top.
The background of the owl if from a recylced paper stack, I havent a clue about the papers the owl is made from except the golden yellow is recollections cardstock from M's The bling actually came from a package I got at the dollar store. The stamp is one i am rather fond of, but not sure if i won't trade it out when i start adding pictures.
I doodled on all the little journaling tags, the cat is from and american crafts paper pack, and the yellow is once again bazzill swiss dots, (are you tired of that yet? Im not! ) The white and red are recollections from M's
This is the last page, similar idea with the journal tags, the giraffe I used a really cool pattern paper, from a recycled stack and some recollections cardstock. Tree ribbon from M's. I used a little yellow circle brad.
