BFF Birthday Presents

Happy Thursday, fantab followers! Sorry that we have not been keeping up with posting lately, Life has just been crazy busy for everyone. Hopefully, it will slow down soon and we can get back to crafting!

Yesterday was Laurie's birthday and, as promised, here are a couple of goodies that I made for her to celebrate.

This easel card is a Lori Whitlock file that I got in the online Silhouette store. The paper is about 100 years old from my stash (I think it was a very old Spring Stack?) and the flowers were actually a present to me from Laurie last year! The sentiment is a Bazzill chip topper, also from my stash. There are two brads (although you can't see one of them here) that hold the card in standing up position when it is opened.

This mini chipboard album is also by Lori Whitlock and is from the Silhouette online store. I was super excited to find out that Silhouette had their own chipboard to cut! It is just a little thicker that cereal box cardboard, so I doubled up on it for the covers. I used papers from my stash and a Tim Holtz clock on the front cover. Each page is actually a pocket page with a tag, so there are lots of surfaces for pics and embellies. I kept the embellies to a minimum, so Laurie can choose the theme of her album.

These were lots of fun to make and give to a great scrappy friend!
