Tri-Shutter Baby Card

Susie here today sharing a tri-shutter baby card featuring some lovely white pearl bling from Want2Scrap.  I really love fancy fold cards and this particular style is probably my all time favorite. I enjoy decorating all the different surfaces!  

I used the Cuddle Girl Collection from Authentique Papers.  The front of the card features an element I trimmed out of one of the pages and decorated with a single white pearl.  See it in the upper right?  A perfect center for that sweet flower!  I love the 72 Count White Pearl package because it comes with an assortment of sizes: 8mm, 6mm, and 3mm.

I decorated the back panel of the card with Swirls Finesse in White Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie

Coffee Steam with Rhinestone Swirls Finesse!

Susie here today with a coffee themed layout featuring rhinestone steam using Swirls Finesse from Want2Scrap!  My daughter got a really cute owl coffee mug as a gift from one of her best girlfriends and just I had to snap some pictures!  Grid style layouts are really popular right now and I had a lot of fun putting this one together.

Yes, she was less than enthusiastic about my photo shoot, but this little bit of bling from Swirls Finesse really brightened up this first square!

I embellished this sentiment using 72 Count Dark Green Rhinestones.

The centerpiece of the layout - and the part I love the best - is this lovely, shiney burst of steam created with Brown Rhinestone Swirls Finesse!

Just a touch here and there using more of the Dark Green 72 Count rhinestones...

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie

Baby Album with Bling!

Susie here today with the perfect gift for a new mom: a baby album with bling!

My niece recently had a beautiful, brand new baby gift!  As a gift, I created an 8"x8" album using the Cuddle Girl Collection from Authentique.  Realizing that she is an exhausted new mommy, I made it super simple by putting a blank photo mat on each page.  All she has to do is print out a 4"x6"  and adhere it in place.  And then I made it super special by adding little bits of Want2Scrap bling to each page!  Have a look!

I tucked a piece of Swirls Finesse behind the tag on this page:

I used a tiny 3mm Light Blue Pearl in the center of flowers on this page:

12" Sleek Strip Pearls in Light Pink embellish the tag on this page:

Another Light Pink Pearl adorns the upper right corner of the card on this page:

More Light Pink Pearls provide a sweet detail on the little cameo tag on this page:

More of the 12" Sleek Strip Pearls jazz up the tab on this page:

Here are some pics of the rest of the album:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie

St. Patrick's Day Mini Album

Susie here today with a mini-album full of pictures from our St. Patrick's Day celebration!

 I started with a 6x6 chipboard album and the Charmed Collection from Authentique Papers.

St. Patrick's Day celebrations are always special with our clan because we are celebrating my niece's birthday!  She was all decked out in green - clothes, jewelery and tattoos - so she was absolutely pinch proof! 
The Charmed Collection has all kinds of super cute embellishments that are perfect for a mini-album! I dressed up the shamrocks on this card with 3mm gems from the 72 Count Light Green Self Adhesive Rhinestones.  The pack contains 3 different sizes: 8mm, 6mm and 3mm.

I used the 72 Count Dark Green 3mm Rhinestones to accent this tab...
I used 72 Count Orange Rhinestones to add dimension to this little pot o' gold!
Love this picture of my daughter and I - she is my lucky charm!

There was much merry making, shenanigans and malarky!


And my husband is the gold at the end of my rainbow!

I love the 6x6 album size because I can cover 4 pages with one sheet of 12" scrapbook paper!  The Charmed Collection was fun to play with and provided me with all kinds of opportunities to layer on the bling!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
