365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

Create a Book Blog Hop

Hello everyone welcome to the CREATE A BOOK today - March 2nd is Read Across America Day and in honor of the day we are creating books! This wonderful hop Blog Hop hosted by JOY Joy's Life if you are here from TAMMY http://tammyjennings.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please click HERE
Page 1-Here is a mini album book I made in honor of my son and his name Aidan. All of the papers and some of the embellishments are from a Me and My Big Ideas Kit. I stamped the sentiment with an Autumn Leaves stamp (Michael's) and added bling and a heart/flower embellishment chipboard sticker.

Here's a pull out tag that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and did some journaling about our day.

Page 2-The monkey tag is a die cut from K & CO I am giving the monkey tag away as Blog Candy....see below. I layered 2 layers of cereal box chipboard under the monkey. The sentiment is from CLOUD 9 stamps (Joann's).

Page3- I also stamped this beautiful sentiment from CLOUD 9 stamps (boy stamp set Joann's) and sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist and added buttons.

Page 4- This is my favorite page of the book because I love the way this photo looks. I was sitting on the grass at the park watching Aidan play and he started running to me and I captured this picture, it's what I call picture perfect! I love how it shows him, the grass, the playground, the sand, some trees and sky! I added green bling to the grass with a "Fun" embellishment and a star.

For this tag I was originally going to place it on the front cover but it didn't look right to me so I found the perfect spot for it on this page! This stamp is also CLOUD 9 stamps (it's a baby stamp set), after I stamped the sent. I embossed with my Cuttlebug.

Page 5- For this page I really wanted it to look word-y is that a word!?! LOL! The Happy Kid stickers were part of the kit, I added word stickers that describe my son next to each letter of his name. He is Awesome, Incredible, Delicate, Adorable, and Nutty!! 

I added some bling next to each letter of his name on the stickers. I also added a frog "LOL" sticker next to Nutty!! His name letters are fuzzy flocked chipboard stickers.

For the back cover I sprayed the green paper with turqoise Glimmer Mist and stamped the "This Belongs To" stamp with a Recollections stamp and wrote his name Aidan James. I did this because it reminds me of when I was in school and everyone always used to right that in their books and notebooks!

BLOG CANDY!! I will be giving away ALL 27 of these cute K & CO. animal die cuts to one lucky follower the sizes range from 1- 5 inches!! I will announce the winner on Sunday.
