"Blast Off" Mini Album

Happy Monday to you all. I hope those of you who are mommies had a wonderful stress-free Mother's Day yesterday. I did! No cooking or cleaning for this mommy.

Today I am sharing a mini album I created using the Bo Bunny "Blast Off" 6x6 paper pad. It's an oldie, but a goodie. I was so inspired by all the photo frame cards, from the NSD blog hop, that I created this photo frame mini album.

Here's a quick video showing this album all put together.

NSD Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pumpkin Spice Blog hop. We are celebrating National Scrapbooking Day with a Pumpkin Spice Blog hop all day long. Each stop has a challenge and a coupon code. See all the details below.

Today my post is all about WASHI TAPE. The amazing stuff that is versatile and colorful and decorative and useful and sticky but not too sticky. Yup, I love me some washi tape.

I created two projects to share with you. The first is a 3D paper box that I cut with my Cricut and decorated with washi tape.

The second are these are two cards I made using the washi tape as both decorative and functional. The bottom layer of tape is holding the pocket together to create the envelope.

 Here is a video showing how I created these projects!
