My Acrylic Album and A Sneak

Can I tell you that I have been scrapping my booty off! I received some goodies in the mail that lit a fire under my mojo; in just a few days I have created 6 layouts, 2 cards, and 2 acrylic minis, sans the photos. Unfortunately I can only share a portion of what I have created- the rest has to do with some good news on the scrap front...stay tuned! LOL!

My Acrylic Album ROCKS!!!!! That all I have to say!

I made this LO around the gears that were part of my DT shipment this month. I actually ventured into heat embossing on acrylic- I think I'm hooked! These gears are so fun, especially for boy layouts and you can order them in different colors. Just plain clever, I tell ya!

I had to use up some of my huge stash of Basic Grey papers before I start buying the new stuff- LOL!

here's a close-up of the gears- I used Ranger's distressed embossing powders on the edges

This winged heart is just an all around fun album and I loved working with it because I was able to combine 2 of my favorite products, acrylic and lace cardstock! Adhering lace cardstock to each page allows you to see through each page and gives each wing very intricate detailing! I then used a sponge brush to apply acrylic paint around the edges of each wing.

I left the photos out because this is going to be an "in progress" album and I will add photos of my sons as they grow throughout the year.

How cute is this engraved leaf album? I used an embossing pen to trace the detail and then heat embossed- told ya I was hooked!

I added some Autumn quotes to the pages and I plan to add this year's fall photos to the opposite pages.

MAA doesn't only carry albums, you can find acrylic stamps and this awesome ribbon ring set. This holds a TON of ribbon! I wish I had this before I spent hours putting all of my ribbon on ribbon wraps.

Here's a little sneaky of 1 of the projects that I can't show until the 1st.

Thanks for stopping by!! HUGS!
