This photo album was put together for a lovely couple soon to be married.
It is constructed out of white paper bags. My lighting was terrible and the colors
were not as vivid as in real life. The Brides colors were used Purple and Silver.
The front and back covers are made using a glittery card stock.  The border is
solid pearls. The flower is handmade. Ribbons and lace are tied to the binding
and a string of pearls dangles from one of the rings.
This album was so much fun to put together. I hope they enjoy filling it up
with their Wedding photos.

The tag in the pocket is removeable and a photo can be placed inside.

I just love these pearls! Again handmade flowers.

This is the Bridal page. Inside the pocket are two tags for photos . The veil is used to
cover the circle where the Brides photo goes.

Another journaling spot.

A nice size photo can be added to this page and across the page a place for journaling.

This page has a pull out accordian tag at the top where pics can be added.
The flowers are handmade.

Lots of silver on this page.

The Top tier of the cake pulls out and a photo can be added.  Also a phot above the
sparkling cider glasses. There are pearls adorning the cake. Again the lighting doesn't show the sparkly.

Add a photo. The lighting does not do this page any justice. The silver flower and embelishments are pretty!

Away they go on their Honeymoon! Best Wishes for a Fruitful and Blessed Marriage!
May God Bless you, Mr. & Mrs. Jared McFarlin.

This is the back cover of the album.

This is the first of five tags that fit into the pockets of the paper bag.
They will hold one-two photos inside.

Another tag.

Love the silver flower!

Again I apologize for the lighting.

The last tag. I am sorry that the lighting wan not good. The purple is just gorgeous.
Another great challenge over at TSOT!

Today was my Embossing Class.
There were six ladies who came, just perfect for my house.
They all seemed to enjoy themselves and had fun!
Some of the projects were a little intimidating at first, but everyone got
right in there and  it was a great time!

This card I think was the messiest and the most fun! It is called Cracked Glass.
The stamp set is Stampin' Up!  Beautiful Season. We stamped the bird using Mellow Moss
ink and then colored it in with Watercolor Pencils. Next, we inked it all over with the
Versa Mark ink pad and coated it with the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and heat set it.
We did this process 2-3 times. As it melts it looks like a pool of water. Then just place it
in the freezer tor 1-2 minutes. Pull it out and started cracking! As the piece is bent,  and
folded it cracks.

With this card we used the Big Shot Embossing Machine.  The card base is
Daffodil Delight. It is embossed using the "Manhattan Flower" folder.  Next,
is the light beige CS which has been embossed using the "Petals-A-Plenty folder.
Then we used a brayer rolled in Versa Mark and rolled it over the entire piece.
Next we sprinkled Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel powder over it and heat set it.
The brown and white pieces were cut out of CS and run through the Big Shot Machine
die-cutting with the Labels Collection Framelits.  Finally, the butterflies were stamped
using the Papillon Potpourri Stamp set.

This one was fun! The Base is Marina Mist CS, love that color! We used a piece
of  printed CS and a piece of Regal Rose. The Regal Rose was punched randomly
using various hole punches. Then a piece of box tape was applied to the back.
We turned it back over and  sprinkled fine glitter over the holes which are sticky
from the tape. Tape this piece to the printed paper, tie a few ribbons on and adhere
to card base.

White Card Stock was used for the base.  The Stamp set was Stampin' Up!
"Christmas Lodge".  We stamped the tree with Versa Mark then sprinkled
Snowflake Embossing powder over it and heat set it.  The sentiment was
stamped with Versa Mark and gold embossing powder was sprinkled
over it and heat set also. The tree really sparkles!
