Mother's Day Mini Albums 2011

This year I made mini albums for the mom's. I just a Sizzix die to cut the shape of the books. The paper is from Stampin Up. The ribbon is also Stampin Up in Very Vanilla and Basic Black. I used the We Are Memory Keepers corner chomper (Stub) to cut the corners of the tags. I used Martha Stewart punched on the edges of the pockets that hold the tags. I hope the moms like them!

Thanksgiving Treat Bags




I made these treat bags using the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. I then inked the edges and stamped the speckle design with a retired SU background stamp. I made the turkey with the scallop circle punch, the Boho Blossoms punch, 3/4" punch, and the 1 3/8" punch....isn't he cute?
To make the body of the turkey punch one brown 1 3/8" circle and one 3/4" circle, Ink the edges (I used Stampin Up's Close to Cocoa.) and glue the head to the body. The beak, waddle, and feet are make from the boho blossoms punch. You will need to punch one set out of orangish and one out of red. I used SU More Mustard and SU Ruby Red. To make the feet, trim the pointy blossoms into turkey feet shapes. For the beak, use one of the points left over for the beak. The waddle is made from the scalloped blossom. Trim it down to just 4 scallops. Ink the edges of the beak, waddle, and feet and glue to the turkey. The tail is the trickiest part. You will need to punch three scallped circles out of double sided paper. Ink the edges. Now you will need to fold 5 scallops up. Then flip and fold the two corners to the center. For a visual, please watch Dawn make one:http://www.5min.com/Video/How-to-make-a-Turkey-With-Punches-77392853
I used a marker to make the eyes.
I did not make the Pilgrim hat for my turkey....
Hope you enjoy!

I used the circle Nestabilities, a Cuttlebug Combo (Love Language), the stamp is from Stampin' Up (my demonstrator sent it to me as a surprise!), the cardstock came from HL, and ribbon I got at Wal-mart.

Wish me luck~
