Fall Mini Album

Good Morning! Rashida here today sharing a few pages from my fall mini album. The album
features shapes from Gina’s Fall Shape set and various other shape sets from Gina’s Designs.

For the cover:

The cover was made using two pieces of chipboard that I cover with painted canvas. I painted Gina’s Trees and the fall banner from Gina’s fall shape set with brown paint and added gold leaf foil to the pieces. Next I layered up the painted chipboard with a few fall colored flowers from my stash.

This page was made using Gina’s Hinges shape set and Gina’s fall shape set. Once again I painted the chipboard and added fall flowers to the corner. The glittered chipboard piece is from Gina’s Fall set. The Hinges double as a holder for the pull out journal/photo card.
For these pages I used Gina's Chicken Wire, Gina's Fall Shape Set, and Gina's Banner Builder Dovetail Minis. You can find the entire album on my blog. Thanks so much for looking!

House Mini Display Frame

Hi everyone Monica here with a newer piece from Gina's Designs.  This is a mini display frame and they come in: House, Balloon, Camera, Butterfly and Birdhouse.  I used some G45 papers to decorate it with and some chippies from GD's  Spooky Shape Set, Lamppost 2, and Grass & Foliage set.

 I left open spots so I could add some Halloween photos.

 I backed it with corrugated cardboard and I used some Crackle Paste and glimmer mist...
...then I stamped it with a scroll type stamp all over the frame.
I stamped the Boo chippie as well and I love - love how it came out.  Well I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by....Simply Monica

Flying Heart Wall Hanging Kit

This is one of the new wall hanging kits from Gina's Designs and it was a pleasure to assemble and decorate.

The kit comes with the following:
  • 6 x 6 chipboard square with a small hole punched in each corner (I used my cropodile to insert eyelets into each hole).  This square piece is intended to be at the top
  • 6 x 7.5 chipboard rectangle with two holes punched at the top and one hole punched in the center of the bottom.  This piece is intended to connect to the square at the top, and to hang the large key from the center of the bottom.
  • A large heart and a smaller heart
  • A pair of wings
  • A crown
  • Large key (to hang from the bottom of the chipboard rectangle) and also a smaller key
  • Corrugated cardboard lazer cut shape (I used this on the top piece)
  • Corrugated cardboard strip (fits the length of the bottom piece, and I chose to cut mine in half)
  • Three words (Dream, Inspire, and Create)

Please see the bottom of this post for a list of the other items from Gina's Designs that I added to my hanging.  This piece looked gorgeous just as it was without the extras I added, but that's just me, I can't stop once I get my hands on my chippies :)

Garden fairies layout

Kathi here again to share a layout I created for you. The garden fairy layout.  Products I used from Gina's for this layout include, Lamppost 1, Garden Fairies (lg) and Cottage Windows (lg). Soft green's, blue's and peach/pink was blended on this altered canvas.

 Kathi created a double matted frame around the photo. The double mat was created so that the photo could be exchanged for other photo's.

 Two fairies sitting around a bird house enjoying the flowers.

A garden fairy is leaning on the lamp post overlooking the babies photo.

Be sure to check out these chipboard cutouts as well as others in Gina's store.
