TRD: mini pocket album

hey all.
this week i decided to make a "pocket mini album",
using Tsunami Rose Design's "Mechanical Error" digi kit.

using my Sil Cameo,
i cut out the mini pocket album out of black card stock.

i then glued all the tabs together.
(i used and ATG gun)

 next i took the 4 sheets of the "Mechanical Error"
papers and cut them to fit all the surfaces.

then i added some embellishments to the cover, 
 used black/white bakers twine to bind it, and
a small velcro tab to attach the flap.

there are 4 pockets in all.

 with a tag in each pocket.

 using the leftover papers and ephemera

from the digi papers.

i think it came out super cute and i can't wait to give it away.
thanks for stopping by.

hugs :)

TRD: challenge #32 - anything but a card

this week's challenge for Tsunami Rose Designs,
is to create something that IS NOT a card...
using the NEW digital printable kit "Mechanical Error"

so, i made a Sticky Note holder/cover.

using my Silhouette Cameo,
 i cut the base out of black card stock.
then using the digital papers i cut the cover
pieces to fit the flap and the front.
i used a bling button for the closure,
and added some bling to the flap.
i also used a rosette flower w/ a button for the center.
the pen is a Hello Kitty pen from Target
(what i had avail for the pic).

this is the inside w/ a small stack of sticky notes included.

i think this came out super cute,
and would be an awesome teacher gift.

thanks for stopping by.

TRD: 8 1/2x11 "Grunge Planks" card

i made a card using a 8 1/2 x 11
digital paper "Grunge Planks".

i used kraft card stock for the base.
i cut the "grunge planks" into 5x5.
using the Tim Holts movers and shapers heart die, 
i cut a heart out of the paper.
then wrote "love" inside the heart cut out.
i wrapped black twine around the card, added a button, 
and 2 mini clothes pins holding a heart that says "u" on it, 
and attached them to the twine.

all in all i think this card came out cute.
could be a masculine card too.

thanks for stopping by.
