Team Shock Bag Album

My daughter, who is 7, plays softball.  Her team name is SHOCK!!  I designed this bag album for her team, then the mothers got together and made the albums for them.  For the front, I cut apart a softball, added ruffle trim around the edge, then glued it down.  I used twine and a funky button closure.
Here, I used a wide ribbon, wound it around a wooden bingo piece, then stuck a crystal star stick pin to embellish.
Here is a pic of the back of the album.  Team SHOCK sure is intimidating!
A simple crochet flower with a paper flower on top, along with a softball brad gets the job done.
On this page,  I sprayed a chipboard scroll with ink, then used a flower to adorn the edge.  Doesn't Macy look tough?
It IS true, that Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend!!

Paper flowers, ribbon, and little bling look great on this page!

This shot was after one of Macy's home runs!

I painted this baseball sticker yellow with Luminarte, a product by Creative Imaginations.

Here is another baseball made yellow with Luminarte!  Check out Creative Imagination's Blog at  I'm on their design team!

Same Product 3 Ways: Shelley Hamilton

Hi guys, Shelley, here!  I made this fun little hanging with the Song Birds collection.

I covered the chipboard bird with paper from the 6"x6" Song Bird pad.  I used leaf and vine diecuts from the Song Birds line.  I made the flowers by diecutting banana leaf paper, stamping them, then finishing them off with glass beads.


The banana leaf paper gives such an interesting texture for the flower petals.  This beautiful green color really brightens up the project!

On this page, I used the Debbie Mumm Songbirds diecuts with Sunburst Luminarte H20's on the yellow butterflies and Mediterrannean Luminarte H20's on the blue one.  The Luminarte makes them sparkle!  I also used Silks paints in Solar Gold on the small flower, and Sky Blue Silks on the little dots on the blue butterfly.  To finish out this "Peaceful" project, I used Swarovski eye candy crystals in several different colors. Thanks for letting me share this project with you!
