Close to My Heart Flip Stand Album Project Reveal!

Hi everyone!  I am still on a HUGE high after the release of the brand new Spring and Summer Idea Book, and boy, do I have a LOT of projects in store to share with you!

The first reveal I have is a page from a fantastic product that I had not had an opportunity to use yet.  This project is serving two purposes for me: 1.)  I am using the random pictures that I LOVE, but have fallen out of my timeline of pics for some reason or another, and 2.)  I am using the Designed Decor Flip Stand Album as a business tool, making the pages out of the new papers and embellishments to use as a display at my workshops and gatherings!

This is my favorite page so far, and one that I created with a little wallet-size pic of my niece, Abbie, using the fantastic sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #121 this week!

Let's take a peek at some of the details...
This is my favorite frame in the Dimensional Elements Framework Pack.  It is one of three chipboard shape packs that are included with the Cricut Artbooking Collection.  I left it white and trimmed out my niece's darling little face with the silver shimmer trim because, let's face it, I LOVE IT!!!

I actually stumbled on a brand new use for my washi tape while attaching the picture to the fame...I used the Honey Triangles so you could see it really well...

This beautiful little cluster in the corner is a combination of embellishments.  I trimmed out the leaves from the beautiful floral print from my Ariana Paper Packet.  That gorgeous shade of grey in the background is one of the shades of CS exclusively included with the packet and is already a favorite of mine.  I sprinkled some sparkles from the Black and Grey Sparkles Assortment for just the right amount of bling.  The flower is from the Ariana Complements, and the dainty little bow is from the Ariana Assortment.  Thanks to Shelly for the help in my decision-making here!  :)  Do you ever use your "phone-a-friend" lifeline when crafting for a second opinion?

This entire project is becoming a fast favorite!  I am enjoying making a smaller 6 x 5.5 inch page for a change.  It is inherently limiting in what you can add because of the smaller size, but also less of a time commitment.  I really encourage you to check out the Close to My Heart Designed Decor Flip Stand Album and give it a try!  I will be posting more pages soon, so stay tuned!  Follow me on FB to always get the latest news and updates.  :)

Don't forget about this month's specials, including one that is JUST from ME!  
Embossing is Boss!
