Sneak Peak Friday

Hi All...I am linking up with Sneak Peak Friday this week I've been waiting all week to post these creations... mainly because they were a gift that I sent with my Pastor and his wife to give to a friend this week... I hope they didn't forget... and if they do, I guess the friend gets a sneak peak at her gift!

Anyhoo, I made two more photo albums, one for a friend and one for her daughter's birthday. The first is in orange because that is said friend's favorite color :) I also experimented with a glitter stamp kit that she gave me on her photo album, so I hope she likes it!!! Her daughter's photo album has a more tropical flare to it as her room is a beachy/surf board theme.

Necessity is the mother of invention - I used the flower instead of an "A" because I didn't have any more "A"s!!! Thankfully it seemed to come out pretty cute :)

Paper: cardstock, I believe the patterned paper for the second photo album came from a My Mind's Eye set, the papers in the first set I believe came from either K and Company or DWCW
Embellishments: Ribbon for both albums from Target dollar aisle, Glitter leaves on first album from a Martha Stewart glitter stamp kit; Gems on second album from Hero Arts, Flower in outside of second album from Memento, flower brad from Secret Pal
Sentiments: Sentiment on outside of first album came from the same paper pack: K and Company/DWCW Set; I used alphabet stickers for the name on the inside; for the second album, the name on the outside was created with alphabet stamps from American Crafts; Happy Birthday sentiment inside from alphabet stickers and a flower from my Secret Pal

...and I think that's it.... Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!!!


  1. I totally love the flower/flourish in place of a vowel...a happy accident! Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed my visit!


  2. Thank you, what a beautiful surprise! Thank you from both of us!

  3. I am glad you liked :) I tried to make Rebekah's bright and cheerful without a lot of frills :) I hope she enjoys :)

  4. They are fantastic! I love the glitter stamp! And using a flower for the A was a great idea. It looks so neat! So happy you joined us on (in)courage for 'studio sneak peek' this week! :)
