Well, here are a few more photos of that 4x4 chipboard album I did with die cuts from Creative Cuts & More. The album is a die cut that will be available from CC&M. The flourish on the lower right, (one of my own dies by Sizzix) was cut from vellum that had been stamped with a flourish. I used that same flourish (from Hero Arts) on the upper left of the left hand page. The pink flower on the bottom of the left page is done with a punch (by Fiskars) out of velvet paper. The sentiment? Well, "That's Amore", is from Prickley Pear Rubber stamps.

The lettering on the left pages is the Dragonfly font from Quickutz. I die cut it out of vellum, ran it through my "X" and then used my Basic Grey Rub-on roller over it to make sure it stuck down "good". It also gave a really neat affect...kind of like white chalk ink. On the right page, I used the flourish stamp from Hero Arts, the big sun dial background stamp is from Fancy Pants "In the Garden". Ummm...and I bet you can't tell I like chocolate. Just a little.

Some of you are old enough to remember when the top 10 list was quite the rage on the David Letterman show. (Showin' my age??) Well, I created my own. I used a stamp from Little Yellow Bicycle. On the right side, the flowers were punched using my Fiskars flower punch. The slide mount is a die I picked up from Creative Cuts and More. I stamped on the die cut, giving it a bit of extra punch. The small rectangle in the middle is a Tim Holtz Fragment. A dear friend of mine gave me a sampling at Christmas and I have been having a blast!!! I used my sanding block to scuff up one side and make it look frosted. Then I actually used Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and embossed on it. (I stole that idea from Tim Holtz. He did a tutorial during his 12 Tags of Christmas posts over at his blog. Thanks Tim!!!! I love that technique!) Here is a close up:

Lots of layers going on here. But I love that, can you tell!?

Well, I have an appointment that I must hurry off to! Word from Terry at Creative Cuts and More is that she is posting the albums on her sight so she will be having some of those for sale this week. Really, hop on over there and check her stuff out!!! She has a ton of die cuts and you can get the designs in almost any paper, chipboard, velvet, metallic and acrylic you can think of!! It's all very reasonably priced too!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
