Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide Hop

I am so excited to be participating for the first time in this hop!  We are showcasing new product from our Holiday Gift Guide which is available TODAY - view the guide online by clicking the link at the side or contact me to get your copy! 

I have put together an envelope mini album that I originally thought I would use to store Christmas gift tags, but have decided it is too pretty and plan to add some photos instead!  The envelopes were made with Kraft card stock and Liquid Glass, the cover is Kraft c/s as well.  After assembling the envelopes,  I bound them all together using my Zutter (had to brush the dust off that puppy!!)  Then the fun part - decorating with the gorgeous papers from our Sparkle and Shine paper collection.  I just love the prints and the shimmer of the silver in some of the papers - just a note though, the silver doesn't take ink well as you may notice with one of my stamped images.  Here are the pics of what I made, starting with the cover:

 I added a small Sparkle Clear Flourish as well as a corduroy flower from our Ruby Mini Medley Collection and a bit of organza ribbon to tie on the binding.  Some twine from our Frosted Card Making kit tied in a bow holds the mini album together.  Here are the inside pages:
 Notice the stamped image in the top left corner of the silver houndstooth - the silver resists the ink!
 Zip Strips from the tops of our papers are great for embellishing.....don't throw them away.  Tree image is from the stamp set from our Frosted Card Making kit, stamped with Slate ink.
 Added a little sparkle with our Ruby Shimmer Trim....
 Back cover.  All paper was sponge distressed with Ruby ink before adhering.
 View of the completed album from above.  Lots of room for photos and space to tuck more inside, or add mementos, notes, etc.
If you  would like the template for the envelope and cover, let me know.  I'd be happy to send it to you!!

The Brae-ers October Blog Hop - Give Thanks


Welcome to our October Hop featuring Team Brae-er that focuses on "Giving Thanks" in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday.  We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do. To purchase any of the items featured in our blog hop, kindly contact your local consultant. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog at
http://thebrae-er.blogspot.com for a full list of participants. If you came from Carol's blog, then you are in the right place!

Our theme this month is "Give Thanks" and I have created three items to show you today.  The first is a layout that I was inspired to do from a layout by Carolyn Burch.  I used "Artbooking" to create the tree and the photo mats, title and pumpkin.  The base paper is from "Sarita" and there is a little "Huntington" in there too.  I love our new jute ribbon and the Rosewood Embellishments! A little glitter gel on the leaves in the title and some glitter & shimmer paper along with cardstock for the tree leaves added that little bit of sparkle to the layout. Now I just need to add some photos!


Next, I have a couple of cards I created for recent classes.  Both feature Huntington papers and again, I used the burlap ribbon.  The stampset on the first card is "Always Grateful", one of my favourite new stamp sets.  The second card was stamped with "Poster Tidings" which was our Stamp of the Month for September. 


Your next stop on the Team Braer hop is Brae's blog .  

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in November when we will be featuring gifts to make for the Holidays.  See you next month!!
