Gnome doubt about it!

This set is adorable! I am not generally a huge fan of Gnomes, but when I saw this set, I just knew I had to have it!

Do gnomes live in trees? I don't know if they do or not, but this one is hiding out in one anyway!

Along with the Gnome sweet Gnome set (126537) I also used the wood grain back ground stamp. (117100) I really like this background stamp but don't get to use it as often as I would like so this was the perfect opportunity to be able to use it! For the leaves of the tree, I used the scallop circle punch (119854) and layered them on top of each other and cut the excess off the sides and top. For the saying, I used Gnomenclature (127059) and the Decorative label punch (120907) which I reinserted into the punch and cut in half to make a punch that fit my words. I used the Heart to Heart punch (119881) to give you a sneak peak at some designer series paper that will be offered in the sale a bration catalog at the end of this month!

And here you can see the little fella on the inside of the card holding a heart just for that someone special!

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do!

Until next time,

Double-Triple shutter album

A friend of mine asked me to do a class for her and some of her friends. I was excited to be able to use our new Framelets Dies, Labels collection (125598). It is so pretty and I am finding out that it is very versatile! This is the outside of the album. How it would look when it is closed. Normally, it would have a ribbon tied around it but I took it off to take the pictures and forgot to put it back on. (oops!)

  • This is what the album looks like completely open. In the next few photos, you will be able to see the different layers.

This is the first layer as you open the album. I did not add any pictures to my album. For one reason, this album is on the feminine side and my house is over run with boys... wont quite fit with the design Im afraid. lol

This is a close up of the inner flaps. I wanted you to be able to see the designer series paper and ribbon. This is going to be offered in the sale a bration catalog at the end of this month. Isn't the paper soooo pretty! I have used just about my whole pack already so I will be anxious to get some more!

again, just some more of the details.

The class went very well and everyone was able to complete the album with no problems.

It looks like a very complicated album to make but honestly it is not! I am working on a video tutorial for this album and will post it here and on youtube in the next several days so be watching for it!

Until next time,
