"All Girl" Mixed Media Scrapbooking

I'm down to the next to the last page.  It has been so much fun I've been tempted to purchase another record album-album to alter!

The next challenge was to use scraps and stamp, stamp, stamp.  At this point it was getting to hard to stamp directly onto the record album sleeve.  I decided to pull out my blank ATC cards and stamp on them and adhere them to the album sleeve.  Then have a bit of fun embellishing and stamping on top that the base card.

Main Ingredients:  ATC cards; Inkadinkdoo Carousel stamp; Tim Holtz Distress Stains and Inks; Ranger Embossing Ink and Clear Embossing Powder; Other Ingredients: Fiskars Humming Bird squeeze punch; Making Memories tiny alphas; Tim Holtz Idea-ology, number, spinner, small gears, paper tape, and words; Fiskars Asian Inspired and Midnight Kisses stamps; Bo Bunny Serenity; K&Co. letters; Tim Holtz music score stamp.

To get the base I just stamped the carousel horse on the each ATC card and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I went back over each one with a different color Distress Ink.  I wiped the ink off the embossed image.  I layered the cards between newspaper and ironed them to melt down the embossing powders.  I really love the detailed image that came through.

I tried to all the little embellishment or word that created a positive and encouraging word back to my granddaughter.

I started on the right and added the ATC cards to the album sleeves, layered a piece of Bo Bunny Serenity on the far left, and added an accent of Tim Hotlz paper tape to bring the two elements together.

Another page I had a grand time doing.

I want to thank everyone for the great response and encouraging comments on the last page. 

REMEMBER that your comments add you to the drawing at the end of the month for a $20.00 gift box of product from Jenni Bowlin Studios.  I totally love Jenni's collections.  I am working on getting my hands on her new Wren line. BUT  Have you seen this?  Connie Mercer did an awesome job altering it.  Leave Connie some encouraging words on Jenni's site and let me know you did for an extra entry into the drawing.  That means you can leave TWO comments today here ... one for today's post and one letting me know you left a comment for Connie at Jenni's post.  Update:  the magic comment number hasn't been left yet.  I'll let you know immediately when someone is the "lucky" commenter.  That person will receive a new Jenni Bowlin punch. 

Have a Crafty Day!
