I love the colors on this album!

The color teal, that deep greenish one, is sooo popular now! It seems almost every brand has a this deep teal going on right now. I do so love the color, but I've been finding it a little hard to find flowers and ribbons to go with each one just right.
It features the mixed shaped pages that I have been so hooked on. They are so unique, and since I cut most of my own shapes from my own patterns, they are just a little different from everyone else's. I do get inspiration from those awesome brand name albums, but I just love pulling it off for a lot cheaper!
My mother in law found this paper in a LSS in Oklahoma, and knew that I would just love i!
As usual I didn't hold back on the sanding and sewing on this baby. I mixed cricut cut flowers and primas to make up some really pretty flowers combinations.
And what is a chipboard album without a little bit of acrylic somewhere?! I added a heart shape that rests over an extra special picture.

Two posts in one night???
Well I can't go away tonight without sharing the project that has had me busy most of this month! As a sort of grand finally, my Accent Scrapbooking design team owner gave us the opportunity to choose our final project. I picked an album I have had my eye on for months, knowing it may very well be the most challenging project I have done for them. I could have picked a no-brainer, but *nooo*, I had to choose the acrylic accordion fold train album! I was a blast to make, but it really brought me out of my creative box. So many times I was unsure of just where i was going with it, but I think it came out pretty darn good :) The hardest part I think, was coming up with some sort of theme and choosing the right papers. Once I got past that... I used my trusty cricut machine, and made my own little cardstock embellishments. I get easily overwhelmed with all the embellishments out there! And for the wheels and photo mats... it worked great so that the main page elements could be duplicated on the other side of the page. My acrylic album tip of the evening: wash your hands constantly! LOL um seriously though! I also found that the little swifer dust cloths work great for pulling any dust and finger prints right off. They disappear like magic.

Lemonade anyone?
Hey, remember me? LOL I sooo need to catch up! We are all moved, well we have been for a couple weeks--or so ;) I needed to "squeeze" a post in last week, for Making Lemonade Design Teams 2nd anniversary challenge, but I just never did. We did a "FRESH SQUEEZED" challenge, and came up with our most summery/refreshing/lemonade paper crafts. It was fun seeing all the variety of all our work , starting with a common theme, but completely done up in our own crafty ways! Here is a sneak peek of two of the three albums I made, but I can't for the life of me figure out where I've put the pictures of the third one! AH!
Anyway, both of these feature a handmade glass of lemonade! I cut some left over thin acrylic from accent scrapbooking --of course!-- made some glass shapes, put a couple basic grey rub-ons on, cut a piece of yellow vellum just a tiny bit smaller than the glass and then glued it on where the rub-ons where. Got to be creative when using them acrylics! LOL Then I used the itty bitty pop dots on the back side of the vellum where the rub-ons where too, so they didn't show either. Lastly I cut a strip of doubled cardstock for the straw(again I only glued where those lil' rub-ons were!) and there you have it, a nice cool glass of lemonade!
