Technique Tuesday Iris

This is a new beautiful stamp I got while I was on vacation.  It is colored in Watercolor pencils and inked distress inks, The iris and sentiment are from the stampset GSIris by Technique Tuesday and I bought it at a craft store in Astoria.  Black 1/8" satin ribbon and tiny rhinestones as well as Nuvo's Glitter Gloss finish the card

Crafting on Vacation has been VERY challenging but I am pleased with most of my projects.

Little Flip-Out Photo Album

I am so excited about how a little Photo Folio Flip UP Album is turning out.  I am using Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe designer papers for it, and am inspired by the tutorial by Bo Bunny

This picture is looking down from the top at the double flip out construction

And this is inside when the Album is first opened---a waterfall for journaling and images on the right and the first (of a dozen) matted flip pages matted for journaling an image placement
