Are You Ready For a Blog Hop of Album ideas?

Welcome Everyone!
If you are just arriving from The Die Cut Diva blog you are in the right place.
Now if all the links are not active please be patient, the hop is set to go live at 6 AM MST.
If at any time you get lost or a link isn't working- just pop back to the Die Cut Diva Blog and get the line up.
Today we are sharing some fun Album ideas to show you what is available in our wonderful Creative Cuts and More on-line store.
There are several album shapes and sizes available- the possibilities are endless- check out a few examples this month in our blog hop ,then go check out many more at the store.

 I started with the Rectangle Accordion Mini Album with Layers & Tin Set. Now you know I wouldn't make a project without my Killer White Tearable Tacky Tape.

 Now I always suggest using a bone folder to have a nice crisp crease when folding.I decided to distress my tin with some crackle paint from Tim Holtz- I believe it is Lettuce. I also used Mod Podge to put a coat over the paint so it wouldn't peel off.

 Used some killer white tearable Tape to attach some ribbon around the base.
 I stamped various flower stamps and fussy cut and added various sizes and levels to every other panel and then chose fun sentiments to add on the other panels.
Thought this would make a fun little gift for someone needing some positive words.

The finished album has a fun sentiment -Listen to Your Heart! Prima text flowers and leaf
seemed to really blend with the theme - the only thing I added was the triple pearl stick pin from Pizzaz APlenty.

 Did you know that Creative Cuts and More carries many supplies ???
