My Current Project

is my DD's 2nd Year Album. Here are the layouts I have completed so far, but was too lazy to post. The last 6 are the ones completed in the last two days...I'll point those out just to make sure.

Also, since I am trying to use my stash...I am very foggy on some of the paper. I have literally had some of them for years and years. Nothing new was purchased for this album.

Title Page:
I plan to place two pictures in the middle of the from the beginning of 1 and one from the end of 1. Circles were cut using the Curvy Cutter and letters cut with Cricut. I also added Stickles.

I used a sketch from the CTMH Idea book. Letters for title were cut with Cricut.

Walking - First Steps Layout
The paper is CM (can't remember the name of it). Letter for the title were cut with Cricut. The footsteps are hers...I used the MM paint and let her walk across the paper. Then I cut out each footstep.

Eating -
Have no idea wat paper this was, but I liked the pattern. I did cut around the pattern so that only what is showing was left. Word strips were from the same paper. Boy was she a mess!

Splash Pad -
Again, paper is unknown. However, the blue paper is CM. I used Grunge Board (bottom right and bottom left). To color the Grunge Board I used Cat's Eye Chalks. I also inkedthe edges of the yellow paper.

UF vs. UM -
I can't even blame this one a sketch! This one was all me...LOL! I stamped gators onto the orange paper and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. The bottom green part is from one of the Shortcuts packs...see, I am using my stash! This is pure Orange and Blue hell! Go Gators!

Scarf Diva -
One her favorite activities at the time. The more the better! Velum "Sassy" from one of the vellum packs. Diva cut with Cricut. I also used various ribbons to embellish. And just to prove I am useing my stash...check out that paper. That's purely vintage from a "stack" that I would never even consider buying today!

Ducks - caught me in the lie. Those flowers are the new CM flowers (I had to make my order to stay active). Again, vellum from one of the vellum packs. Title cut with Cricut. All papers are CM.

Swimming Lessons -
Some of the paper is CM...not sure about the rest. Ribbon was used along the green paper. Used the Circle Maker to punch the circles..then they were cut in half. Title was cut with Cricut (I think that is Tear Drop).

St. Thomas Vacation -
I guess it warranted a DPS in her own album. Paper was from a Summer Glitter Stack by DCWV. Blue Paper is CM. Title cut with Cricut. Used Cat's Eye Chalk to ink the edges of the blue paper.

Road Trip to Orlando -
Paper and Title (stickers) is CTMH. Ribbon was used on the tags.

Tallahassee -
Patterned paper unknown. Solids are CM. Title cut with Cricut. Various ribbons used to embellish bottom circles.

Warning: The following layouts were completed this weekend. I absolutely refused to unearth the Cricut. I actually used stickers to spell out the titles...Hark! Seriously trying to use the stash! Cyn would be proud!

Hair Bow -
I don't do single photo layouts very often. This one is very simple and lots of unused space...which is very uncharacteristic of my style. CM flowers were used. Paper is Lily Kate (Wow! I remembered one). Letter for title are CM stickers. I also stamped the lines around the paper and used Glossy accents over the stamping.

Little Farm -
I bought this paper years ago just in case we ever went to a petting farm. So I finally got to use it. Title is CM stickers adhered to circle made with the CM Circle Maker.

Halloween -
No Cricut used...was absolutely determined! All the shapes along the left hand side were cut with the CM makers and the CCS. Of idea on the patterned paper. Chipboard letter used for the H in Halloween.

Bubble Bath -
Solid paper is CTMH...patterned paper is from one of those "stacks" from way back! Bubbles and duck stickers used from a random and old sticker pack. I used Cat's Eye Chalks to ink to edges of the torn paper. Vellum was from a baby girl stack...don't remember which one.

So there you have it...The beginning of her 2nd year. Only November 2008 - July 2009 to do now! Lots to do!
