Ok, well you all saw the last two presents I made for my SIL's 30th b'day party. This was the last gift I made her. She is a new scrapper and loves the new word books. The last time she was over she was looking at my friend album and said, "God, I love these books." Knowing I was already finished with her gifts I still had to make her one. This is the PARTY chipboard word book from BO BUNNY! I am a really gigantic fan of these albums as you are all aware. I used all Junkitz Salsa Celebrations papers. What I loved about these papers are the colors are so much fun and they are double sided. One side has a cool design while the other has a lighter design in a solid color which is what I used on every other page. Two additional papers were used, Pink Bazzill and Creative Imaginisce bodacious flowers pp. Also used were loads of ribbon, lots of rub ons, Junkitz Birthday Quotes from the Salsa Celebration Line, Flowers with bling from Target dollar bin. Bling from Prima, Bling from cell phone bling (Walmart), Queen & Co Felt Flowers, Karen Foster Brads, prima flowers, heart brad, love side kick thing I punched out years ago, ribbon slide on the back cover, Junkitz chipboard flowers, Jolees 30th birthday 3d stickers, stickles, fancy pants flower chipboard, photo corner by basic grey, pebbles my mom got me at a yard sale with sayings on them, cloud 9 quotes, signo pen and there you have it! xoxoxoxo Nicole ENJOY! My sister in law LOVED IT! I was thrilled, always makes me so happy seeing my creations opened as gifts. Makes all the work so worth it!

Oh Nicole! I love this! The Salsa line was one of my favorites. I still have a couple pieces of that paper. The colors are so juicy aren't they?

I love what you do with the word books. I still haven't opened my 'family' book yet. Mostly because I haven't even begun thinking about the pictures I'm going to use for it.

I've been scrapping and in a scrapping mentality all day. I'll post a couple things lata!

Looks great - per usual!
I wish I could say more, but I have a HUGE headache and can hardly see straight!

PS: I love that you list who makes everything you use. That makes things so much easier when I see something I realllly like!

And you are right, seeing someone receive your handmade item as a gift does make it all worth it.

Thank you, forgot one thing, the paper on the back of the R and Y is around the block birthday paper. xoxo

What's so funny? said...

I'm so glad I saw this post. I just made the exact same one last night. And how funny, although I used different lines, our colors are the SAME, sista! I'm going to scrap lift a few of your great ideas. I really liked how you outlined where the photo needs to go in bling. Dug that! And I have the same birthday tags! Ric rac looks superb on the rings. Whoever thought you could alter/scrapbook with black? But it really makes everything POP. The throwdown of bling and embellish are fab-u!
