Happy Father's Day!
Oh man.... I'm THE worst at last minute stuff. Good thing my husband had to work today.. not that it was good he had to work, but good that I had more time to put something together for him. We had a nice dinner yesterday at the lake with my parents and family for Father's Day, but my husband needs something special so that he knows how much we appreciate and love him. He really is "DA BOMB" of Dads... just ask the kids, they still think he's cool!
This whole little card/album is made with the new designer paper out of the Fall Pre-view brochure from Stampin'Up! I used some Chocolate Chip and River Rock card stock to layer, but the rest is all the DS Paper.
You can find the instructions at Maria's blog... it's amazing. It's her ATC Accordion Holder Tutorial. I just glued the inside pieces together and added photos instead of ATC. She has lots of different versions. Thanks Maria!!! AWESBOMB tutorial!!!
The letters on the front are done with my Cricut cutting machine. I did double up the front and back flaps with another layer of DS Paper, and then sewed the sides. I really didn't need to, but it added that extra
shazam.... and not just because I CAN sew! *giggle*. Okay... I did it just because I have to sew on everything because I can. LOL I'm busted. I can't believe I almost didn't order the paper..... I LOVE this paper.
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Stamp of Authenticity, Baroque Motifs, That's Nice, Snap Stamps
Paper: Brocade Background DS Paper, Chocolate Chip, River Rock
Ink: Timber Brown Stazon, Wild Wasabi
Other: Round Tab Punch, Vintage Brads, Cricut, Janome Sew Mini Sewing Machine.
I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day weekend. The weekends go by way too fast don't they? Happy Father's Day to you Dads out there!!!
