Album or Fancy Card?

Back in June, I posted some paper and a sample album on my blog in this post. I'm a little delayed getting the final product posted. Sorry!

It can be used as an elaborate card or a mini album, or even both! It makes a great gift.
I took the basic idea from Heather's album and stepped it up a notch or two by adding more panels for photos or journaling and adding a super-mini album in the middle.

The above photo shows a close-up of the super-mini album in the middle.
I hope you like the way it turned out. I'm really pleased with the extras and with how the Angelee paper changes the whole feel of the project.

Wedding Book

Back in June another gal and I were putting on a bridal shower for a girl at church. Her outdoor wedding was to have a country western theme, with the bride wearing a plaid shirt, jeans and cowboy boots! We found some great tablewear to go with the theme. That same evening I found the perfect sheet of paper at a garage sale for 10 cents! It matched the tablewear almost EXACTLY!!!

That's how the card below came about...

I already had the "denim" looking paper at home so the card came together pretty fast. I was stumped by the advice book I was going to make until I saw this post by my Angel buddy Seleise. The book couldn't be assembled until AFTER the shower, though, since we were going to pass the pages around and let the ladies offer words of advice, humor, Scripture, etc. That's why it's not bound yet...

We also used a few pages at the beginning to write the list of gifts she received that day. I really wish I would have pix of the finished book because I added fun ribbon to the binding. It turned out really cute, and should be something she can hang onto for years to come. ;-)

Black/White Wedding Card

If I need to make a wedding card and have no idea what color the bride is using, I generally go with black/white. I needed one for June 5, and went with the card below. Guess what color the bridesmaids were wearing?!?!? Gray! Yippee--I nailed it without even knowing! ;-)

I really like the huge bow, and it worked because we were hand-delivering the card the day of the wedding. Unfortunately the cardstock strips I used at the bottom are now retired from The Angel Company. :-(
I didn't do any coloring at all--just used Stickles to glamour it up a bit. It looked really pretty in person.

Supplies: white ultrasmooth cardstock, black Bazzill mono pack (retired), cardstock strip (retired), scalloped punches, Nesties Labels 1 die, Palette Noir ink, ribbon, Swiss Dots embossing folder.
