Mini Album and Challenge Cards with my Counterfeit Kit

Here it is...the album reveal.  I used my May Counterfeit kit, with few additions to it.

 I chose the title "18 Years" because I used portraits of my son from the first one at 3 months old to the last one, at Graduation, at age 18.  I got this idea on Mother's day...It is amazing to look at these pictures, and at how much he has grown and changed.

 I used some of the pictures as "pockets" to house a tag from my kit.
 I made one flap out of my large tag from my kit to enable me to put two pictures on one page.



I didn't show all of the pictures/pages.  But you get the idea!


I also did some cards using the sketch challenge from Sketch Support that Counterfeit Kit Challenge posted for a mini challenge using the May Kit.  Here are a couple of cards I did with my kit.

 All I added to this one was the ruler ribbon bow and the plastic needle.  This one is the regular size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2".
 This is the inside of the card.  I added the pearls.
 This is going to be for my husband for Father's day.  SHHHHH!  Don't tell him!!!  I made the buttons with my Epiphany Button Maker.  I also used my Sew Easy on this card and hand sewed the stitching.  This one is 5x7".
For the inside I used another tag to write my message on.

Stay Crafty!

LOVE those sewing-themed cards!! Especially the tape measure ribbon! The bow you made is SO neat. I need to learn how to tie better bows. Great job on the mini-album too. :-)
