Teddy Zipperz Rocker Card

Hi! Today I am on the Digital Delights by Louby Loo blog sharing how I made this cute little Halloween rocker card.


All DD files used:Teddy ZipperzGhoulish Sentiment Set, and Rocker Card SVG cut file.

Ghoulish sentiments set 
  Rocker Card SVG Cut file  Teddy Zipperz
Papers & Cardstock: "Spooky Delight Stack" by DCWV, "Glitter Paper" by COLORBOK

Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils

Acc./Embellishments: 4 small black rhinestones, foam tape, glue runner , glue


     I made my rocker card over-sized with the base 7 inches in diameter. I made the wavy trim slightly smaller. I folded the card base and wavy circle in half, centered the wavy piece over the base and glued them together.

The circle mat and decorative mat were enlarged to 5 inches. (I used a Halloween mat, but the included mat will work just as well.)
The white decorative circle was glued on top of the black circle. Since it's hard to glue together glitter cardstock, I used glue runner and lots of glue, then paper clipped the layers together until they dried.

Once dry, I centered this piece over the curved area of the base, centering it from behind, as shown.

The image is 3 1/2 inches tall and was colored with Prismacolor markers. The image was attached with foam tape. The color palette can be found here.

Prismacolor Pencil Palette

Bear: 937 Tuscan Red, 1031 Henna, 943 Burnt Ochre, 1034 Goldenrod
Patch: 946 dark Brown, 1082 Chocolate
Inner Ear: 929 Pink, 994 Process Red
Mouth/ Stomach: 1067 Cool Grey 90%,  1063 50%, 1060 20%
Cloak: 1030 Raspberry, 925 Crimson Lake, 924 Crimson Red, 1078 Black Cherry
Accents with a gold gel pen and yellow Wink of Stella

The sentiment is 1 by 2 3/8 inches and is double matted with orange and black glitter paper, and is attached with foam tape to the bottom of the card base.

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial. Happy crafting!

Summer Watermelon Photo Album

Hi! Today I am sharing a little album I made for some of those summer photos I'd like to share with my family. I made this album using Summer Melon Word Album and Watermelon Girls Digi Stamps and Watermelon Boys Digi Stamps.

The finished album is about 13 inches by 3 3/4 inches. I used papers from "Melon Patch" by Craft Smith and "Joie De Vivre" by DCWV for my pages. I colored the images, which are about 2 1/2 inches tall with my Spectrum Noir and Colorista Markers.
Here are close-ups of each page.

I bound it all together using my Your Story.

This was such a fun, easy project! 
I'd love to hear what you think.

Camera Mini Album Set


Hi! With all those vacation photos we are all taking, I thought I'd make a mini album set to share with you. For my set I used Camera Trio and Filmstrip Frames from My Scrap Chick.

Film Strip Frames: click to enlarge
Camera Trio

My Scrap Chick files: Camera Trio and Filmstrip Frames 
Papers & Cardstock: "Dots, Stripes and Plaids" by DCWV, colored cardstock by Recollections
Orange raffia
7/8 inch button
Glue & adhesive runner
Hot glue gun
Your Story machine

Following the included instructions for assembly, I made the camera box 5 3/4 inches long by 4 1/2 inches wide.

I used pieces from the Camera Box file to make the mini album. I welded two camera background pieces together with a one inch strip between them. I added four score lines along the center strip. This piece is 3 1/2 inches by 10 1/2 inches. Decorate the front of this piece, when folded in half.

I made four double sided filmstrip pages using the double opening filmstrip. I glued the black frames to the front and back of the white bases, along the bottom and both side, leaving the tops open so photos would be easy to add. I ran four strips of hot glue down the spine, then put the four filmstrip pages in pushed up as far as they will go into the spine. Making sure they were straight, I heated the spine in my Your Story machine.The mini album measures 5 1/4 by 3 1/2 inches.

The box is large enough to fit three or four mini albums, so you could fit a who;e summer's worth of memories in one box.

I love how this project turned out! If you love mini albums give this project a try. If you like my camera mini album set please leave a comment. I love to hear from you!

Happy Crafting! ~ Shirley
