Cuttlebug Inspiration Wednesday

Hello...hope all is well.

My kids have been sick with sinus and eye infections. They are both on antibiotics now and doing much better. YAY! That makes momma happy.

Well, on to today's inspiration. We are so fortunate to have Teresa Collins and Jamie Harper as our guest designers today! So cool!!

The design team also received some fun Teresa Collins products to play with....Great Fun!!

I decided to create a mini album. I love the way it turned out. I didn't follow the kit instructions to a T but, instead made it my own creation. I love how it all coordinates so well and helps tell your story of gratitude.

Here is my album...

Here I used the Houndstooth Cuttlebug embossing folder on some red cardstock.

Here I used the Journaling Card Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the background for my Title.

I used some metal rings to bind my album. I love all the folders and envelopes this little album has. As well as the theme of being grateful. So wonderful and inspiring on its own.
I created the paperclips to hold the envelopes closed. So easy just take a paperclip of any size. I used the Jumbo size for my project. Then I cut paper of the same size and attached them together over the end of the paperclip. You can also fold a piece of paper over the end of the paperclip and attach. Quick and easy.

I hope you take some time to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog. I am sure the rest of the design team will have some great projects to share with you. And don't forget Teresa Collins and Jamie Harper are guest designing for us. They are sure to knock the socks off all of us.

Till next time Happy Craftin' and thanks for stopping by, Jenn K
