In addition, I am entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge titled Simon Says ... Emboss It; my project has several embossings, including dry embossing on the flowers using some of Tim Holtz's Texture Fades embossing folders and heat embossing using stamps and some gold embossing powder.
Below: check out the cool Cheery Lynn Design Lace Corner Deco I. It is in a pack of three that I can see myself using a LOT!
I also used my Cricut Expression 2 to make the beautiful flowers. I am so happy that I purchased the Flower Shoppe cartridge. It has come in handy many times, as is evident from this album.
Below: don't you just love the flower? I used Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die along with grungeboard and a lot of doodads.
Below: the English Tea Party Doily was cut and fan folded to make a little design under the flower. Don't you love that flower? My sister made it ... is it okay to regift something back to the person who gave it to you?
Below: I just love this butterfly! It's another Cheery Lynn Designs die from a set of three titled Small Exotic Butterflies #1 with Angel Wings. Check out the deco corner, too!
Below: the letter press is a grunge block that is a Tim Holtz creation. Check out his post with a video tutorial to see how to make one for yourself!
Below: this is how the mini album looks when it's fanned out from the front and back.
Below: don't you just love all of the goodies that I used on the ring?
Finally, I would be remiss not to mention the paper that I used. It's K&Company's Julianne 12x12 paper pack. I couldn't find it online anywhere ... waaaahhhh ... I love this paper, and my stash of it is rapidly being depleted.
