April Projects for Darling Divas

Darling Divas used papers from the Daydream collection by October Afternoon
in our kit for the month of April.
I absolutely LOVED this month's kit! The papers and embellishments to go with them were awesome! Go check out the blog for Darling Divas if you're interested in buying a kit :)

Here is a layout I made using a picture of my mom with her sisters and brother when they were kids. I hand stitched around the shaped paper, which I also traced and cut out by hand.

I made this card for my grandma using supplies from the kit, as well. The journaling card on the inside was also part of the kit. There were tons of awesome products to choose from!

Thanks for looking!! :)

Mini Album Challenge

Mandi challenged those of us on the design team for Darling Divas to create a mini album using a cereal box and the tutorial she posted on her blog. I didn't have an empty cereal box handy, but I did have a cheez-it box! :) Here is what I did!!

I traced a plastic cd that I had laying around, and then cut out the circles to use as my bases for the pages.

After cutting out the cardboard circles, I did the same thing with my patterned paper, then glued the paper circles onto my cardboard pieces.

Next, I used my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and punched holes in the "corners" of my pages. And I was finally ready to add my photos and embellishments! It was so much fun to make! I will put a list of the supplies I used at the end of this post.

Thanks for looking!! :-)
