The Cut Shoppe & Clique Kits Blog Hop

Hello!! You should have arrived here from Danielle's blog! Welcome to the Clique Kits & The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop!

Today's Line up!
Lacey Gasper (You are here)
Gina Lideros (Your Next Stop)

Today I'm going to share pieces of a mini album. This is a works in progress and the whole album will be shared next week at the Clique Kits Blog Share on Wednesday, September 24. But I really wanted to show how I used the die cuts in this album!

Lets start with the cover. I layered on a layer of the chalkboard paint and using a chalkboard bistro marker I wrote the word happenings.
 The inside cover I covered with specialty paper I had in my stash and then layered on top a die cut from the Cut Shoppe! I love the texture and visual interest it gives.
 I also love the notebook doodle hearts from the Cut Shoppe. I cut these out multiple times and used them throughout the album.
 This is one of my favorite journal cards I added to this album! I cut the Today Word Bubble from the Cut Shoppe's - Just Sayin' cut file. I cut this in vellum, placed it on one of my favorite journal cards from the kit and splattered it with white paint.
 This last page I have added those doodle hearts again (Told you I LOVE them!!)
Lets not stop there! We have prizes!! Don't forget to comment on each blog during the hop for a chance to win ONE of TWO great prizes!!

Prizes
