Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a mini album from Want2Scrap featuring a beautiful new collection from Quick Quotes called Winter Bliss. First, these papers are gorgeous and fun. The colors are great for a winter theme, but I'm sure you will find reasons to use them all year long.




This mini album is shaped like a camera, so I had some fun turning the cover into a shaker window that looks like a real camera, check out the video below.



I also used my Xyron Creative Station to make the adhering the paper easier and neater, this was a fun album to make and I hope it gives you some ideas for a mini of your own.  Thanks for stopping by.

Give Thanks for the Little Things

Hi everyone, Gabriela here as part of the Want2Scrap blog hop! I did a project that you can use for you Thanksgiving table or have in your house all year long. This took me about an hour and a half to finish and it was very simple to make. I used a mirror for this, but you could use an old frame or a shadow box.

 

I started with the 12" round mirror, a chipboard die cut from Want2Scrap, Honeycomb 102, and Mahogany ink.


I inked "The little things" with Mahogany ink and then cut out "Give Thanks for" on my Cricut from the Honeycomb paper.





While I let the chipboard dry, I put Want2Scrap bling around the edge of the mirror for a decorative effect.  This part took the longest, but I put on some music and I was done in about 30 minutes.




To make attaching the letters easy, I used my Xyron to put adhesive on the back of the paper and the chipboard.



Finally, I attached the words using a ruler and my cutting mat to line everything up; here's the finished project.



The first picture was taken with nothing in the reflection and the second was taken to show how the words look with a reflection of something.  I am planning on getting a plate stand for this so I can display it for Thanksgiving! If you use a frame or shadow box, you can hang it on the wall as decor for the whole year.  I hope you liked this project and you give it a try, thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today and I finally made a page I've been thinking about for a while. I thought it would be fun to make a page with a shaker window, so I tried it out. I used a chipboard cutout from Want2Scrap along with some of their bling and of course paper and ink from Quick Quotes. I scrapped a picture of my husband and I on vacation in New Orleans a few years ago, it's one of my favorite pictures of us and it seemed like a good fit for this page.
