Back again

Sorry for such a long delay in my posts I've been a little busy. Mom and I really enjoyed spark I will post some of the projects we made shortly. I also finished my quilt since my last post and will have some photos for you soon. Today's creative inspiration is a father's day gift that Mike and I made for his dad. Its a hybrid scrapbook, the kit I used is from house of three called the we love dad kit. I decided to post half of the photos today and the rest in my next post. So let's get started. Once you buy the kit from house of three you need to unzip it and then you can just pick the scrapbook papers you want to use on print out the pages. I decided to use a mix of scrapbook and transparency papers. The first page is a bazzil clear plastic page from

The photo that you can see if from our trip to Kenya in January, it was taken when we stopped at the equator. The brown sign says reasons we love dad its just printed on brown cardstock and distressed with Tim Holtz distress tool and inks. If you don't know who Tim Holtz is he is an amazing guy who changed the scrapbook world with his great ideas and tools. If you want to learn more about him you can check out his blog here For all you HSN shoppers yes mom I am referring to you, he sells some of his products there.

The giant numbers were part of the kit from house of three and they are printed on cardstock. Hope you enjoy the album so far, I will post the last part of it in my next post. I made a similar scrapbook for my dad for father's day this year too, but I didn't take any photos before I mailed it off, but I used another house of three kit worlds greatest. The inspiration for both of these albums came from Heidi Swapp, you can see both of her albums on her blog here Hope you enjoyed the post and start getting crafty, I am off to bed soon I had an early start this morning had to be at work at 5:00am, eww.
