4 cards one design

 Add some flowers in the same color scheme to give it a cheerful look.
 My favorite butterfly stamp.  I stamped this image then cut it out.  Using some foam squares I lifted the wings to pop it off the page.  A few Chrystal accents and done.  (so I don't have to cut the antenna I stamp them on the card stock before attaching the cut butterfly)

 This umbrella is a fun one to make.  I stamped the umbrella shape on colored paper.  Then using my clear stamp pad (yep I have a clear Close To My Heart stamp pad) add some clear embossing powder and heat it until it shimmers like a plastic umbrella.  Pop it off the page with some foam squares and add a black rhinestone to the top.

Paper Bag Albums

Two ways to make these albums.  The first is with the middle pages shorter as seen above.
Need 6 lunch sacks

3 Cardstock strips 1 ½ inch x 5 ½ inches
Scrap paper
Fold the long part of the bag behind the bag bottom keeping the edges even

Repeat with remaining 5 bags
Glue Bottoms to Bottoms (Make sure you really get the edges to stick)
Using the cardstock strips (1 ½ inch x 5 ½ inches(width of bag) fold each strip in half (hotdog fold)
Attach each strip to the Side B
Make Binding:

Using a piece of Cardstock cut 4 inches x (Width of bag) 5 ½ inches
Fold 1 ½ inches from each end (This gives a 1 inch binding)
Cover Front and back cover with paper then attach the binding
Decorate Each page as you’d like!

Both can be made as follows

Pretty in Orange and Green

I used various papers on this layout and it was replicated from the sophia layout in the spring summer 2011 close to my heart idea book pg. 6.  I used stamp set c1456 Heartfelt treasures for the stamped images.
