Cuttlebug Challenge Mini Album

I'm finished with another Cuttlebug Blog Birthday Party Challenge or the Be Inspired Challenge #49 http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/2009/09/cuttlebug-challenge-be-inspired-49.html
You really need to go check the blog out this month because everyday there is more fun. All the Designers are doing a great job with projects and tutorials. It is a blast and I'm so happy that I got this challenge done in time this week. This was a lot of work but I love the way it turned out. Hope you do too.
The challenge this week is to make a mini album with the party theme that you chose. Of course mine is Cupcakes and girlie ones at that for Kylie's (my Niece)first birthday that is comeing up in November. To make this album I took a cupcake image that was 3"X3" and blew it up to 6"X6" and then cut pages from chipboard and clear acrylic. Might I just say here that I used my Tim Holtz sissors to cut the chipboard and acrylic and it cut through both like soft butter. The papers I used are Basic Grey and most of the images are Digital images by Mo over at Mo's Digital Pencil http://www.digitalpenciltoo.blogspot.com/ and a few from Queen kat Designshttp://www.katstamps.com/intro.htm.
This first photo is of the entire book all put together and standing up. It is so fat that you can't even lay it down. I used Cuttlebug Embossing folders and or cuttlebug die and some Spellbinders nesties for the frames. A lot of Stickles and Liquid pearls was used for this as well as a few rhinestones.

This is one of my favorite images by Mo and on of my fave pages in this book.

Love those little cupcakes. I honestly thing those are Studio G stamps.

This page will not be enough for all the guests. I think my sister said they were up to 40 +. We have a large family and so does Kylie's Daddy.

More photo spaces. Room for some journaling and photos.

Room for more photos.

Another Mo Image. This one is of a little girl but you can also get a boy one and male or female eating a cupcake and no #1 birthday candle in it. I love the large cupcake here. It matches the ones I did for the gift bag and card I made last week. I love working with the clear acrylic and using alcohol inks to add color and Cuttlebug Embossing folders to add texture.

Room for photos of Kylie with her first cake. I can't wait to see this.

The paper flower centers here were cut with a Cuttlebug die but I can't remember the name of it right now.

This will need some stickles and liquid pearls around the frames I'm thinking to finish it off. Love that little cupcake. It is from a set by Queen Kat Designs http://www.katstamps.com/intro.htm. They have wonderful stamps.

God I love this Mo Image. Bella and Bronte and a ton of presents.

Now that I'm looking at this while editing the photos I'm thinking I should have put Stickels and Liquid Pearls around the outer edge of the frames. Sentiment Queen Kat Designs

The back cover. I didn't really want to do anything with this because being on the back it might get all messed up but when I rethink this, the book will proably stand up all the time. I should maybe put a place for a photo of a sleeping Kylie after her big day. Good Idea!

For this post I'm just doing the album. I'm worn out and I still have things I want to work on so... enjoy this and I'll have to add all the cards I did last week tomorrow. Have a great week everyone.
