Hello and Welcome to my blog and Week 4 of Our Daily Bread Designs Scrapbook  Challenges. Our challenge this month is to create a scrapbook page with this sketch!

This week, I actually have several pages done using the BEAUTIFUL Our Daily Bread Designs stamps... These stamps lend themselves beautifully to every paper crafting venue! When you play with us...This sketch can be used for any page size, and you can add as many or as few embellishments as you want. Use your creative imagination. Here are a few more ideas for you....Turn this sketch on the side, make those rectangles into circles  or ovals! 

This little sneak peek that I posted on my blog last week is an album cover for a scrapbook that I am creating for my mother-in-law's birthday gift. I will be creating pages for this album and sharing them with you over the next few months! 

I used the gorgeous Butterfly Single and Die and Faith from Our Daily Bread Designs
I also used the Ecstasy Crafts Small Template

This chipboard album comes from Creative Cuts and More and is called the Heart Shaped Window 6 x 6 AlbumThe leaf ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used Creative Inspiration Paints Aquamarine and Light Purple. This paint adds just the right amount of accent and shimmer!

 The second page of our album is this picture of my husband and I! As soon as you pull a camera out, his eyes close or he grimaces!

On this page, I used the Large Butterfly Background from Our Daily Bread Designs. 
From Creative Cuts and More, I used the Petite Heart die cut in double sided adhesive and added Martha Stewart glitter to it!

On my third page, I tried to incorporate the sketch here, too! I created a pocket with a 4" x 4 1/2" card stock and scoring at a half of an inch of three sides. I mitered the edges and using Killer Red Tacky Tape adhered it to the album. I had three of my children write a note of things they love to do with Grandma and added a punch tab to them.

The stamps that I used the stamp set called Don't Worry and the ZVA Pearls Double Flourishes.

On the final page for this post, I flipped the sketch a bit and used the With Heartfelt Sympathy and the Faith from Our Daily Bread Designs and the ZVA Pearls Double Flourishes.

I painted the Making Memories chipboard with Making Memories Paint. I also used a corner rounder and a sponge with Chocolate Ink.

Oh Chris,

These are so beautiful, and will make such a wonderful gift! I love how you incorporated your children's love and thoughts onto the pages. Those ODBD butterflies look stunning anywhere, don't they?

Your pages are really wonderful! And, your album is on it's way to being done! I love the album itself, also, thanks for sharing the albums of what type of paint your used on different materials and such, also. It is very helpful to some of us!

Chrissy these are ALL fabulous! I just love the card and your pages are great! I think it's funny that your hubby has the blinking eye thing... my grandkids have that too! I have so few good pics of them at certain ages, but hopefully they are getting better about it! Happy memories here and a great job with all!
