A mini scrapbook that I decorated (the window in the cover and the ribbon/cord to tie it together) for Kristin and Adam (my BIL who just got engaged to his girlfriend). I thought she could put their engagement pictures in the album and therefore included a little tin of photo corners. Terrible picture, but you get the idea. I used SU! Shimmer Cardstock and brayered a bit of Bashful Blue ink onto the piece of cardstock I put in the window, stamped the ring (retired SU! Mini Mates), added the rhinestone "diamond," and used a $1 stamp set from Michaels for the "Happily Ever After" and "Going to the Chapel" stamp sets. She loved it! :)

A glitter re-inker ornament for us, with a key tag that I stamped with Karen Foster Snap Stamps for the date. I used a snowflake charm that I have had in my scrap stash for years and two circle punches for the white and red circles (Riding Hood Red). Some retired SU! cord and organza ribbon rounded out the effect. HERE is a great tutorial with pictures that shows you how to make a glitter re-inker ornament. I used SU! Old Olive Classic re-inker for the green, Pretty in Pink for the pink one, and Bashful Blue for the blue one.

Again, for Kristin. The ring stamp is the same $1.00 acrylic set from Michaels, added rhinestone and year with Karen Foster Snap Stamps. Green CS is Green Galore. I had the pink beads in my stash, I believe from a purse handle of Gracie's that broke.

For my in-laws. "2008" stamped in Night of Navy, CS also Night of Navy.
