Royal Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to my castle. I would like to introduce you to the stamp set, Party Hearty.  I chose this stamp set, because it is a very versitale group of stamps.
To show you some of the things you can do with Party Hearty, I created a paper bag album using the mini lunch sacks in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I simply left them flat and bound them at the ends.  Also because the sacks are brown, I used white paint and painted all of their edges brown.
For the cover, I used the pieces of  chipboard that came with the lunch sacks, and covered them with card stock and designer paper.
I used the designer paper, Celebrations, to decorate the album, and I used the cupcake image from Party Hearty, as the main focal point on the cover.  It is hard to tell in the picture, but the icing in the cupcake is covered with glitter.
Below you can see the inside of the album.
The banner on the first page was created using the party hat stamp.  I simply cut them out and turned them upside down.



The red circles on these two pages are the inside circle on the b is for birthday stamp.  I used a real red marker to ink up just the circle and then cut it out with the 3/4 inch circle punch.

                                       
Below are  the tags I made to go inside the paper bags.  You can use them for more pictures and/or for journaling.
Notice the blue ribbon on the red tag.  Stampin' Up doesn't make that color ribbon, but they do make white ones.  Come back onTuesday the 9th, and I will show you how I changed the ribbon from white to pacific point.

Blog Candy!!!!!!

I am offering up this album as blog candy!  All you have to do is email me your name and email address and leave me a comment below.  I will let you know on Tuesday who the winner is.
Thanks for visiting my castle and enjoy the rest of the tour.

  10. Lovely little album, Patty. Mini scrapbooks are my favorite to make and favorite to fill. And they're such fun to show off, too. Today is my granddaughter's 3rd birthday, and the party is tomorrow. I could fill this little album up with her birthday pictures!
