Papercraft Star - Anything Goes

Hi! I hope your week is off to a great start. Today kicks off a new challenge at Papercraft Star and it's a fun one! Anything Goes for our challenge this week!

Rilly has some great new digi sheets in her shop theHouseAcrosstheBay including some fun Alice in Wonderland tags. When I saw them, I instantly thought of Graphic 45's Halloween in Wonderland collection. I bought the collection last year and haven't used it! I have to admit that beautiful paper like that tends to intimidate me a bit, but I dug right in and started cutting. Once I started it was easy and the mini album came together quickly. I used several different digi sheets from THATB; you can find a complete supply list at the bottom of this post.

OK, enough of my rambling, let's get to the mini album already!

For the pages with the inset baroque frame, like on the page below, I used Jann's tutorial.

The bottle tag on the page above is a template from House of Stir Fry. The metal edge grunge tag on the bottle tag is by Kraft Outlet.

And just in case you want to know more, here is the video.....

It was such a fun project to create! I hope you will join us at Papercraft Star this week for our Anything Goes challenge and your chance to win some goodies from theHouseAcrosstheBay! Visit the PCS blog to see what the other design team members and this weeks guest designer, Becky Garrison, have created.

Regan you ROCKED this mini! I love how well the images from the paper matched perfectly with THATB digi images! Love it!

Oh my goodness! Miss Regan, Queen of Mini Albums. It always looks like you enjoy creating minis. I can tell because of all the little details and care you put into them. I love the Alice images. They are perfect for a vintage Halloween look.

Regan your mini album is Spectacular! Wow! I loved the pictures but was totally wowed by the video! It's a true piece of art! I think all the Graphic 45 papers are fantastic just as they are and have also been a bit intimidated to even think about cutting the paper! Now I need it because I have to make a mini album too! You have totally rocked it!!!
Kindest regards,

I think I said it before about this book, maybe on your you tube video - my most favorite of yours ever, very inspired, and so detailed. Another excellent reason why we love you so at Papercraft Star !!
