Macy's Basketball Album

My daughter, Macy, played summer basketball, and so I made this red, white, and blue basketball album with her very first photos playing basketball!

Wooden button by Maya Road that I pained to look like a basketball.  I also used a Tim Holtz acrylic piece on this page.

World Series Album I made for us...

I made this World Series book to house our Texas Rangers photos from last year.  I used a napkin to cover the Texas on this Heart of Texas album.  I came back from the some Collins Group classes in Houston in October, and Tim Holtz inspired me to make this album. , using some techniques I learned that weekend.

This spur page is super-cool, and I covered it with Ten Seconds metal...Love!
I stamped around this canvas star, stamped it, colored the stamps with copic markers, then put Glossy Accents on it.

I used Distress Stain on the pages, and they turned out awesome!
These pictures are of the jumbotron...the kids are dancing!!!

Isn't he cute?  He went to this game in full-Josh Hamilton garb...tattoos and all!  People were asking to have their pictures taken with him!  He obliged!  lol

Back of the album.

Ghoul Bus Album Class offered @ The Crafty Scrapper, Waxahachie, TX

This "Ghoul Bus" is more delightful than frightful, and it was a lot of fun to make.
The chipboard bus is by Maya Road.  It has these peek-a-boo windows that were oh-so-fun to embellish!  I chose a few of Tim Holtz embellishments to adorn the front of the album.
Fanciful stars and a little bit of Glossy Accents is about all we needed on these pages!

The scary crow was a die by Tim Holtz.
Maya Road trim and bingo piece helped finish off the back!

MACY'S CHEER ALBUM. Macy cheers for Upward--an organization sponsored by one of the churches in Mansfield. They have Dallas Cowboy colors! Woo hoo! So, anyway, I indulged myself a bit by decorating to my heart's desire!

"Boom, boom, dynamite!"  She's a firecracker, alright!  lol

Maya Road goodies throughout this one...check out the butterfly!

To achieve the distressed look on the canvas star, I first stamped the clean star, then I colored the pink and navy areas with copic markers, then I used Glossy Accents on the top.   I then placed a couple of chipboard stars on canvas and sprayed it lightly with Maya Mist.
I used quite few pieces of embellishments meant for homecoming mums...of course, I had to add a bit of Glossy Accents just to get my fix!  I love Glossy Accents like Lisa Pace loves glitter!  lol

Macy Scraps, too!
