Halloween Boo Album pics

I had some requests to see the rest of my Boo album from my last post, so here are pictures of the inside. It holds 11 pictures and has several places for journaling. I am selling this album for $35 if you don't want to make your own. It's the only one like it. I'm in love with making little Mini Albums! They are so much fun and quicker than big 12 x 12 layouts. What is your preference and why? I'm interested to see what others think about scrapbooking and mini albums.

Halloween Projects and Tutorial!!

A Quick Fun Post and then I have to Run!! Stampin' Up! Demo Only Retreat is this weekend and I'm late for the party?! I know I owe you a tutorial for the little gift box from the Anniversary Party, but I just haven't had the time to put it together. I do however have a tutorial for my favorite holiday season....Halloween!! I hope you like it! If you would like to order supplies through my Stampin' Up! Website, please click HERE.

I wanted to demonstrate another way to use the Bitty Box and decided on one of my Peek A Boo characters! I just love using Peek A Boo characters around frames, so why not use with candy and the Bitty Box die cut.
TUTORIAL is at the bottom of this post.

I'm sharing projects from Die Cut Diva class. Last month we made an entire Halloween Album from chipboard and Stampin' Up!'s wonderful punches and coordinating paper pack.

In class I teach several different ways to use your Big Shot and the dies. Check out Frankie made with the Top Note die and the Fancy Favor Box!

Then I used the Top Note as a cookie holder and embellished with Felt Leaves cut with my Big Shot. Wrap a belly band around the Top Note with Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous Spice Cake paper and you have the perfect Fall Treat! I used the Gently Falling stamp set to stamp veins on my felt leaf. Clever, isn't it!? ;-)

Another example of using the Bitty Box die. It holds 4 of the Hershey's nuggets or 2 Ghirardelli wrapped squares. I just love the Stocking Punch by Stampin' Up! They make it so easy to whip out a bunch of cute of embellishments in no time.

And now for the Witch Peek A Boo tutorial using Stampin' Up!'s Ornament Punch! Leave a comment if you have any questions about the tutorial.

Which project is your favorite??

Cheers! Elizabeth
