Baby album

I made an album for my niece and her parents to put pictures in. It was supposed to be a christening/name giving gift but they got it a bit earlier since I didn’t want them to forget to take pictures and write down memories each month. It’s my first big album, with 20 12×12 pages. I mostly used the collection Let’s polka, mon amie by Lawnfawn and some other pieces that matched the colors in the collection.

Anna 55

Another aunt of mine celebrated her birthday this year, she turned 55! I made this card for her after spending some time on pinterest looking for inspiration!

Lennart 84

My grandfather turned 84 this year and I made him a birthday card. He loves classy things and gold so I made sure to add a lot of that and some bling

Cilla 50

One of my aunts turned 50 this year and she got this glittery golden card! I know she likes gold and pearls so I think it fit her pretty well. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the party so I never got to see how it was received.

Glittery birthday card

My mother’s husband celebrated his birthday last weekend and I made him a glittery birthday card. I just love these glitter papers eventhough they are quite tricky to punch or die cut through. They are from DCWV and I think the glittery layer is of some sort of plastic which makes it harder to get through. As you can see on the closup the edges aren’t all that pretty and even but it is what it is, the card was appreciated!

I created the card based on the layout challenge this week at clean & simple stamping and I got several ideas for other variations for that layout, I’m just waiting for my vacation to start so I have some time to make them!

Birthday box

Me and Jennie made a birthday card for Malin. Her birthday is in April but they threw a birthday moving in together party this weekend. We made one box each and put them together so they fall out on each other. I got to make the smaller inside box. Here’s all the different pages/sides!
