Tea Pot Box and Mini Album

Hello Everyone, a couple months ago my mom and I took my daughter's to a tea room for a fancy tea party.  The girls dressed up in their fancy dresses and all.  Naturally I took lots of pictures while we were there and I wanted to create something special to preserve those memories. 

 I created this Tea Pot box using two piece from a Clear Scraps Tea Pot shaped Chipboard album.  I covered all sides with patterned paper then created the box portion from a piece of chipboard. 
 Inside the box is a mini acrylic album shaped like a tea cup.  I embossed every other tea cup piece and added photos from our tea party.
I printed smaller photos so they are easy to add to a mini album.  I let the embossing be the main embellishment for the album and left it pretty simple as I didn't want to clutter the pictures. 
Thanks for looking!

St. Patrick's Day Card

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Are you wearing green today so you don't get pinched?  I am!
Today I'm sharing this simple card I made using some festive St. Patrick's Day paper. 
I fussy cut the "lucky me" shamrock from a piece of patterned paper and attached it with a pop up glue spot that I made using the Best Glue Ever.
For more details check out my post on the ScraPerfect blog.

Bonjour Acrylic Card

Hello, today I wanted to share with you this fun acrylic card I made using Clear Scraps Scallop Send it Clear Card
The card kit comes with two scalloped pieces but for this card I only used one. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny, I inked the edges of the paper and "inked" the acrylic with acrylic paint.  I then used my crop-a-dile to punch holes in the card base and scallop piece to create a unique closer using ribbon.  Add a little bling to the scallop edge and the center of the flower on the coffee cup and some thickers for a sentiment of choice.
Supplies used
Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny
Foam Letters - Thickers by American Crafts
Acrylic Paint

Paper Pieced Fairy Invitation

My oldest daughter recently turned 6 and had a fairy themed party.  And let me tell you that it was not easy finding fairy items, especially non Disney fairy items.  So I created these fairy invitations from a paper pieced fairy cut using my cricut.
Paper piecing is a breeze with ScraPerfect products.

Just use a little bit of the Best Glue Ever.  Then use Embellie Gellie to pick up the next piece.

Embellie Gellie picks up paper easily and releases when the paper is adhered to the paper.

 For more details check out my video slide show on the ScraPerfect blog here.
