Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop -- Day 3!!

Hey y'all!! Welcome to the last day of our hops for this month...and its a GOOD ONE!!


The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.



Today we are showcasing the brand spanking new StampTV kit...and ooooh my goodness!! You are gonna LOVE it! Ive been on a box kick for some reason lately...and today is showing the same...but wait! One of the boxes has SIX cards in it! Here it is:


It's a little drawer box that will hold six cards...and probably a couple of more if you make the cards flatter than I did. This was also a tutorial over on SCS, called a Drawer Box (I checked this time to maker sure I was saying the right name!) I also made matching envelopes for my cards. You can see them behind there a bit. Here is the box with it slid open:



I LOVE this little drawer! Wouldnt it make a fantastic gift to someone too? Here are a few of the cards I made too:







Can you tell I am totally loving this kit? It is such a fantastic bargain too! You get sooo much in the kit!

Alrighty then...here is my MAJOR project I did...I designed this little mini album...Im not much of a scrapbook-er, but I have all of these old photos and I wanted to try to use them some way...and this is what I came up with( I will have a pictorial next week up on how to make the signatures for this album for you too!)


This is the album cover. Not much stamping from the kit on this, the sentiment only...this is my thankful for my family album, is what I call it. Each member of my family has a signature in it. Each page is made the same...with a tags and such...I will show each of the pages without alot of my yakking, lol!

Here is the front of one of the pages:


Here is how the page looks opened:


The back side of the page:


My Dad's page:


My Mom's page:


My oldest brother Joe's page:


My next to oldest brother Steve's page:


My little sister Kelli's page: (she said she gonna kill me for using this picture of her! LOL)


AND last, but not least by a long shot...MY page, haha!


Im not the baby, Kelli is, but wasnt gonna show mine, but then decided it wouldnt be complete if I didnt, lol!

The album has so much going on...it has acetate pages that I stamped on and used Spellbinders dies on it too. Each signature has glassine envelope that has been made into a pocket to store pictures in it...like this:




I hope I havent bored you too much with all of my photos!! I wanted to show how you can used the stamps, not just for Fall stuffs, but so many other ways! I really love this little album..and my sister has already laid claim to it, LOL!

ok, ready for more totally awesome eye candy? just follow these links!!
