Birthday and Bachelorette gifts

So I've been slacking lately when it comes to crafting. Just haven't been too motivated for some reason. But, this weekend I had a bachelorette party to go to. Yay! Fun! Well, it also just happened to be the bride's birthday too, so I wanted to make 2 separate gifts. As anyone whose birthday is right around Christmas knows, it's much more fun to get 2 gifts, then 1 combined one. Get ready for a picture heavy post!

For the bachelorette gift, I decided to do a cute mini album. I've made one very similar to this before for another bachelorette party. It has a very girly theme and it's a perfect album to have ready for any pics taken at the party. I surprisingly did not use my cricut or any stamps on this project! Crazy. Most of the stuff was either part of the album kit or in my stash of embellishments. The hardest part to this, was cutting the paper with the scalloped edge of the chipboard.

Here's the front page. There are 3 different sizes of pages and you can see them all from the front.

Ok, now on to the birthday gift. One of my very first craft projects ever, about a year ago, was a few plain photo cubes that I covered. Well, I managed to find a few more awhile back. I decided to make another one for her birthday gift. The next 5 pictures are each of the sides and then the top. You can use the inside for small storage.


See, I told you there would be a lot of pictures in this post! Only 2 more to go. 
The first card I made to go with the bachelorette gift. I used another Bombshell stamp. This one is from their "Bombshell Angel" set. I still just adore these sets. I used my Stampin write markers to color them in. And of course had to use some stickles to add some bling.
The birthday card is one that I've had in my stash. I made it a few months ago at a Stampin Up class. It's using the "On a Pedestal" stamp set. And again, had to add some stickles! It's not a card w/o some glitter!!

Hope you enjoyed these projects! Sorry it was such a long post but I thought it would be easier than making 4 separate posts. Let me know if you have any questions about how anything was made. :)
