You all know I love some layers! this card is packed full of a ton of fun layers. I used the in-color background dip of the pattern paper and the flourishing phrases stamp set and thinlits for the accents. There’s a complete supply list at the bottom of this post.

Of course, I couldn’t resist spritzing my card with shimmer spray. You may remember that I broke a wink of stella pen, so I added some alcohol and put it in a mini mister to create my own shimmer spray.

Next, I made a sweet album using the mini treat bag framelits for the pages. I actually cut 2 of the smaller pieces, to create a pocket on the front of the mini treat bag. Each treat bag has a tag inside too. I tore strands of the burlap ribbon to use to easily pull the tags out.Stampin Up, album, diy, mini treat bags, flourishing phrases

If you open up the album, all the bags are similarly designed using the in-color DSP background papers.Stampin Up, album, diy, mini treat bags, flourishing phrases

  1. Your card is beautiful! Love all the layering! And I definitely want to make one of those albums, such a good idea!

    • Thanks Lana! The album is super easy too! the hardest part is probably cutting all the teat bags, which isn’t that hard at all 🙂

  2. I love the mini album using the mini treat bags! Clever!! And I’m always loving layered cards! Great projects!

  3. Wait, what? You can make an album out of the mini treat bag die thinlits?? Thanks for sharing this idea- I can’t wait to try it and definitely will be hanging on to this when it retires next month! Thanks for organizing this awesome blog hop every month Elizabeth- it must be a TON of hours for you, and I for one am truly thankful! hope you have a great day! 🙂
