May Art Freckles Creations

Here are my May Art Freckles kit creations. You can still pick up the kit right here, but sadly the Chatterbox die cut addons are all sold out. :(

I did a bunch of altering this month.

I just loved the birds, butterflies, funky little houses and stretchy ribbon in this kit.
And let me tell you the June kit is my favourite so far! Super cute! Only 6 days til it releases. Here is a little sneak peek:

Let's Make Some Cards!

I have been really productive this week making layouts, so now I am going crazy this weekend making cards!! I have posted a challenge on Art Freckles for the weekend... post any card you make by Sunday night and I will do a random draw for a scrappy RAK Monday! You can check the challenge out here.

Yesterday I got 8 cards done, though I haven't started any yet today. I am hoping to get a good 20 or so done over the weekend! Here are a few of them:

Coffee Sleeve Album How To

This is a very easy album to make with the sleeves you get on coffee at Starbucks etc.

First gather your supplies: 2-3 coffee sleeves, matching paper, ribbon, stickers etc. For mine I used the Art Freckles 'Cuz It's My Birthday Kit. I only used 2 coffee sleeves.

Cut each of your coffee sleeves along the right hand seam and open up. Punch 2 holes with a Cropodile or hole punch along the centre seam to tie your ribbon. Line each of your other sleeves over top of your first, so all of your punched holes line up.

Embellish your pages as desired. You may need to trim a little off the ends of your middle pages so they don't stick out when the album is put together. I liked the look of the cardboard, so I left it, but you can trace around the sleeve and cut your paper to totally cover the sleeves if you like.

To tie your album together, put your album in order, open it up to the centre, thread your ribbon through the punched holes, fold closed and tie a tight knot and bow on the outside of the album.
Here are my inside pages:

Hope you like my little how to! Enjoy your NSD and keep on scrapping!!
