Morning peeps !!

Here is what I have made with my Molly, a mini 6" x 6" album made using two 12" x 12" sheets of kraft card.  The flower and bow is a pull out small tag and the flowers have been made using a Cheery Lyn die.

 It has a fold out concertina piece inside.

 Why on earth I can't make something easy to photograph,  I just don't know.....

This is the first side with a hidden tag which is double sided

   This is the flip side.

The papers are by Docrafts called Kraft Notes and I have distressed the edges and cut out some of the elements to decorate my album adding frantage embossing powder here there and everywhere.

..........but I love Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium !!
 Had my first play with it a couple of weeks ago and love it !!

 I hate loose glitter because it gets everywhere and sheds.

Sparkle medium adds texture and is soooooooooooooooooo sparkly, my photo's don't show this very well !! Anyway after making loads of test pieces I decided to make a couple of cards with them.

With this first one I just made a cloud effect behind the flowers raising the middle panel with the sentiment. The flower stencil is also by Imagination Crafts called "Gerbra"

What a simple card to cheer anyone who is feeling under the weather. As I said,  I can't stress how sparkly this card is in real life !!

The second card was made using "Butterfly Blossom Border" another stencil by Imagination Carfts

 Not perfect, but a really sweet pretty card. Both my sentiments are by stampin Up. Not bad for a first attempt I don't think !!
