Clearly We can Create with Stampendous, ClearScraps and Tsukineko

Today is a fantastic blog hop day collaboration with ClearScraps and Tsukineko! I'm sure you have already been inspired throughout this week but I'm so glad that we are all together today. I love a good hop, don't you?

Grab your breakfast, snack or other meal (I always think second breakfast when the words "other meal" are said, LOL) and snatch up a pen and paper to take some notes on what you'll be doing next with your new
Remember, you have a chance to win some of the goodies you've seen all week and
 all the details can be found on our sponsor blogs (Stampendous Blog and ClearScraps Blog).

Now let's get to my Sassy Album.

Garden Background and filigree from Jumbo Peony
I started out with a bunch of inspiration from our talented Stampendous designers who are always on the ball with their projects. Thank you talented best designer friends! My original idea was for a scrapbook with a few adorable photos of my kids, but then my scrapbook turned a sort of Smash Book. I decided though that I have spaces for the photographs and they can be added at any time.

It has been a great week of creating with products from
Stampendous • ClearScraps • Tsukineko

This Mixable Sassy Album consists of three acrylic sheets separated by two chipboards. They are the coolest shapes and I really wanted to show off the peek-a-boo effect. So here goes.

A three pocket page for photos and journaling. 

A few leaf journal inserts glitzed with
Vintage Lilac Tinsel Embossing Powder

Create a see through thought or quote.
Even add a photo...

because the Jumbo Dogwood was stamped on the clear page!

Basic pages... but eveyone needs a place to just write.

And the back cover! Thanks for taking the page by page tour of my project today. I had so much fun! Come back in a few days and I'll tell you the techniques I used on all of my pages. Of course, one day and one page at a time.
