Hello My Friend

I bought a plain mini album with a paper machet cover at Michaels.  I covered it coordinating paper and ribbon.  I used pink, green and brown as my main colors.  I was inspired to create this for the My Pink Stamper design team call after I saw the picture below:

This is an advertisment for BoBunny in Creating Keepsakes.

The challenge was to use my favorite Cricut Cartridge, but I have so many favorites.....

I used Songbird for the tag, Walk in My Garden and Accent Essentials for the flowers.  The leaves are from Walk in My Garden as well.  I used the Hide Contour feature to hide some of the flower cuts.

I inked the edges of the flowers, leaves, tag and album with my Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink pad.  I used gems for the centers of the flowers and pearls to tie the flowers together.

I had the perfect shade of brown ribbon, but it was 1" thick.  In order to make it thinner and add some texture, I knotted it and glued it down.  I put a layer of pink crystals under it.  I put hot pink ribbon going up the side and replaced the creme ribbon that binded the album with a green that matched the green paper.

I stamped Hello my friend (My Pink Stamper of course) on the tag and added a flower.

Here is another shot of my finished Mini Album cover.  This will make a wonderful gift for one of my friends!!  One of my resolutions is to put myself out there on other awesome blogs, and this is my first of 2011 ~ I am submitting to My Pink Stamper.  Wish me luck!!!
