I used Elle’s Studio Serendipity Collection to make two ‘scrappy’ type cards and an 8×8 chipboard ‘Smash Book’  type album.  Very fun to combine the two companies and create!

I started looking through the collection and the stamp set with the ‘pure joy’ sentiment made me think baby!  I stamped it on Technique Tuesday twill with Broken China Distress ink…it stamped perfectly…Elle’s Studio clear stamps are an excellent quality!  The 12×12 sheets of pattern paper in the collection have a coordinating border on each double sided sheet,  so I cut them off and used three of them for the diagonal border.  The text strip and banner are cut from one of the 12 x 12 papers.


The darling Baby Carriage is a Memory Box die cut from the Elle’s Studio papers.  So sweet!  Lasting Impressions for Paper buttons and Doodlebug flowers. I used the Perfect Layers Rulers for the blue green mat and to cut the diagonal layers.   The pink border  piece, makes me think of the old springs that used to be in the old, old carriages!  They were so cool and big!  After stitching, I stuck it to an A2 card base with the ATG gun. I’m linking this card to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge


Loll mentioned my baby card in the SCS CAS Favorite thread at SCS this week!  Thank you Loll!


The next card is a #10 business envelope size…


I used ‘parts’ from the collection again.. tags, labels, cut and matted with the Perfect Layers Rulers… adhered the front to an 8.5 x 11 inch  folded in half the tall way, piece of card-stock by measuring 1/16th inch on the fold with an Omnigrid ruler and then adhered the card to it and cut the other three sides with the 1/16th inch Perfect Layers Ruler.  The tab under the sentiment pulls out.  I thought this would make a neat ‘congrats’ card for that special graduate!

Here’s the chipboard album!  I cut the 12 x 12 sheets down to 8 x 8 and had 4 x 8 pieces to use too!  Lots of Elle’s tags, circle tags and labels on the pages.  I ran around the edges of each page with the cutter bee piercing tool, pulling it on the 1/8th inch line of the Martha Stewart scoreboard.  The album is bound with 1 inch Bind it All wires.

    1. thanks Ruth Ann! It was challenging! lol I’m hoping our youngest daughter will take the book and put pics in it of their kids and their dog. It just died yesterday and of course they are all heartbroken. : ( They have not had good luck with dogs. They tend to run off and then come back in bad shape they built a house 3 miles north of town and hate keeping the dog penned but haven’t had good luck training them to stay either. Tim says it’s why we don’t have a dog! lol I say it’s because I don’t like animals! lol happy Spring Ruth Ann!

  1. These are lovely. Great colors and you embellishments are fun and fresh. What a great gift with card for someone. You always have beautiful and practical ideas.
    Have a good day,

  2. Your art work (and yes it is art) is always so original and well done. I love those papers – so pretty – the baby card is really outstanding. The papers made a beautiful memory book and of course your design talent made it sing. Animals are a lot of hard work — I am beginning to think Art and I are crazy!!!

  3. Could not love this chipboard album more. Oh my! LOVE the colors, the patterns and the placement. I’m a sucker for albums but this one is really really sweet!

  4. A wonderful selection of cards. The business size card inspires me to try that fold. Baby carriage is adorable.

  5. I love blue, lemon and pink together in the mini book. I haven’t used my bind-it-all in ages. Must get it out and dust it off. Like the stamping on twill, what a gr8 idea, might borrow that,

  6. I have to say, memory box dies are my favorite…and so easy to find here. I’ve purchased the silhouette and will be leaning in that direction going forward. You did an awesome job…haven’t used the Bind It All yet…but been thinking about it for awhile now! Great Blog Hop
