Mini Accordian Album

I had a whole different post planned out in my head for this morning, but realized that the pictures aren't on this computer - they are on the "family" one that I was using until my laptop was fixed. So instead it'll be a quick review of some things I worked on this week...More from the Monster Squad stamp set released on Wednesday from My Favorite Things.
I wanted this to look like a rustic picture frame so I sponged it, cuttlugged the edges and added even more distressing to it. The sign was made by stamping it on white paper first, then stamping on a piece of mica and cutting it out.


By the way I'm still working on getting some mica chips for everyone. I just keep forgetting to bring a bag to work and bring them home with me!! How about the winner from this post will recieve a baggie full of mica chips to work with? Just leave me a comment and you'll be entered to win!

Wow! Both of these are WAY cool! Love the how you did that ribbon on the first one, the whole layout of it is awesome. And the cb-ing and distressing looks like log cabin! Wonderful creations!

Very cute cards {as usual Michelle}. Your style is fab!! Wondering if you'll be doing an ATC swap again ... school will be starting in September here and I'll find some time to stamp and get creative {actually I'm itchin to get creative this summer has kept me busy with other things and I am missing my art studio so much} *wink* Anyway I figure a fun swap with you and friends would be a great challenge - a kick start of sorts.

OOohhh good stuff - love the tent card!!! I haven't worked with mica chips in awhile - I know I have a couple stashed somewhere (but it took me 2 days to find the 2 cigar boxes I wanted to play with this week so maybe I will look next week :)

neat cards! what is cuttlugged? Is that a term I'm not familiar with yet? I'm new to cardmaking so I'm still learning the terminology. And I'm curious about the mica chips too.. interesting indeed!
