My 39 & Glamorous Blog Hop - April 15-17

Happy Birthday Bonnie!!!! This weekend we are celebrating Bonnie's birthday and every birthday should be celebrated BIG!!!! Bonnie is hosting a blog hop with 39 designers to celebrate with her. I am sure if you just popped in here to see what I am doing today you will want to go over to Bonnie's at A Scrap Above and participate in the celebration hop and if you came from Cori's Bug Lovers than you are hopping in the right direction. There are so many talented designers, there will be wonderful giveaways, projects and tutorials. Bonnie asked us to make a project that would include some of her favorite colors which are black, purple, hop pink and white along with her favorite things which are skulls, keys, butterflies, distress grunge, bling and of course ribbon. I incorporated all in my 6 x 6 Grungeboard Mini Birthday Album.
I used already embossed grunge paper for the covers, painted over it with the Tim Holtz White Paint Dabber and wiped it some of it off before it dried. Once it dried I took my Tim Holtz Concord Grape and Fired Brick Stains and rubbed them lightly over the top of my book. The skulls are from Stripes Element Grunge collection, I just painted the large one with the Tim Holtz Black Paint Dabber. I glued random tags, metals, key, bling, etc to the front of the book keeping in mind what Bonnie likes.

I found these fabulous vellum stickers in my sticker collection so I thought they were perfect for my birthday project. Some are included on the front cover as well. My border is the EK Abstract Flower Punch. I took a piece of white card stock and ran it through my Sizzix Boutique using the Time Patchwork Texture Fade Embossing Folder after I had placed my sticker on. I inked again with my Tim Holtz Concord Grape Distress Stain. Love, love that stain, so very easy to use and a must to have. *NOTE: when you are embossing make sure to add your stickers or stamped images first before you emboss.

My paper is Basic Grey Cauldron and Witches Brew for this page. I used my Ek Bracket Punch for my borderand did some stitch lines with my black Zig pen.

I matted pink and black card stock, did some line work with using my black Zig pen to do my stitch linesand added some fussy cut skulls from the Halloween Silhouette to the page on the left. the page on the right is the K&Company Halloween Silhouette that I cut to fit over my pink card base.

This page and the next are the Prima Rebellious Collection along with the Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage Ribbon Pleats. Again my grudge label and key are from the Stripes Elements Grudge collection.

I just did random size circles using my George & Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge and layered them on top of each other, did some more stitching using my black Zig pen.

These two pages are using the American Craft Amplified Die Cuts with the Rebellion Collection from Prima.

I hope you enjoyed my altered album and would love if you would leave a comment telling me one of your favorite things you enjoy scrapbooking with, would love for you to follow my blog if you feel like it. I will be giving a birthday gift away on this hop, don't you think birthday gifts should be a surprise, and would love for you to share on your facebook I am hoping to reach 500 followers soon.
