Let Your Heart Sing Album

This month for our Susan K Weckesser team we were asked to create Mixed Media. Now we all have a different definition of that technique or style.
I decided to alter a plain white album using paper and stamps.

Here is my plain white album and how I added strong white tape to attach my designer paper from Susan K Weckesser.
I used one side of the paper for part of the cover and the backside for the other portion.
 When I stamp an image sometimes I like to use the image in  reverse, that is when my mirror image stamp comes in handy. A hint is to practice a few times, sometimes it can smear and I have realized the image isn't as crisp as a straight on stamped image.
Here is my two stamped images attached together.

Isn't this a fun image? I love the whimsical style of this set, Sing your Song.
 I used the sun and cloud stamp from Fly Away

The ribbon on my project is from Really Reasonable Ribbon... I love how the colors work with the Susan K Weckesser design paper.

Sweet Baby Cube Gift Box & Album

 Core'dinations Colorcore paper made this cube album look like a million bucks! I am so fortunate as a design team member at Susan K Weckesser to receive so many extra supplies from very generous companies. I received so many wonderful paper from Core'dinations.
It looks so pretty all nested together.

Each layer was cut from core paper and then accented with Graphic 45 paper- I had a few pieces of this baby design from a few years ago. I just love the sweet images.
The couple I am giving this to is having twins, I tried to use versatile colors that would work for either.
A gift certificate goes in the middle and then it can have pictures added or used to decorate in the babies room.

I even put pearls on the bottom box so it had feet to protect the paper.
That yummy yellow satin ribbon is one of my very favorite from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 This is the bag I put together to place the box inside.
 I had this Stampin Up set of a rubber ducky and loved how it stamped out and fussy cut them.
 Thanks for popping in today and checking out my baby post.

Unity has the challenge up for September and I wanted to make sure I got a card posted. I usually make a project when I see challenges but I forget about posting it till after the challenge is over.
I used the card template as my guide to make a quick Halloween card.
 I stamped and fussy cut the ribbon out and pop dotted the dial with the date. 
I used my Faber Castell big markers to color the ribbon.
I really like adding stitching it always adds a little extra dimension.

The paper was a two sided design from Authentique "Lustrous" collection.
