I covered the chipboard book pages with scraps of paper and then layered the star Intricacy on the front. I chose chipboard pieces that were different sizes so you could see the interior patterend paper peeking through the front. I joined the two pages using black brads and added a sentiment with my Dymo label maker.
This card is for our Little Brother Tristan, who is about to turn 14 and thinks he is a rock-star ladies man!

I am in love with the new Basic Grey Kioshi Line and when I was looking for ideas I found a MOSD Friendship Collection Topper that matched the Kioshi paper perfectly. The card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. All the the pattern papers are Basic Grey. The Cardstock and edge strip are both by Bazzill. I added some stickles and BLING to jazz up the papers just a little. I added the MOSD "Best Friends" topper. I used mini glue dots to stick it down and then staples for a decorative touch. Hope you enjoy it!

This is daddy's page. I had so much fun dressing these little dolls to fit each of our personalities. Daddy is wearing his Army uniform with custom dog tags. I even gave him a wedding ring ;)
This is me, mom, mommy, Amy. I am wearing my favorite leather jacket, and little Doc Martens. And of course a pretty little rhinestone diamond ring! OK, OK, I admit, I really thought the rings were adorable!
Kayla. She helped design her outfit. If you couldn't tell she really loves leopard print, black and pink right now! And the little tulle peeking out of her skirt is something she also loves in real life!
Kyrsten is 5, she loves sparkles and pretty dresses. I don't know how well you can see it in the picture, but she is wearing a pair of black glitter ballet flats :) These are her 'I have to have those or I'm going to die shoes'
And last but not least here is Koen, my wonderful little man. He is starting to get himself dressed at 2 years old, and he always picks out Khakis and a t-shirt. He is also really into Motorcycles right now, so I thought his outfit was perfect!
Well there you have it, my 'Us in 2010' mini album. I really had SO much fun working on this one, I think it's going to be a yearly project. Thanks to MOSD Build a Book pages I can create a custom album every year! Thank for stopping in today to check out what I have been up to. Make sure to keep checking back to see what the rest of the DT has been up to!
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather!

I love using acrylic pieces for different uses. I had used the flipped out acrylic album recently but didn't use all the pieces, I had one sheet left. So I decided to use it on a layout. I stamped flourishes using Staz-on ink added some pearls and put my photos underneath the acrylic as a cover. I loved the end result, I didn't want to add pattern papers because I felt it would take away from the acrylic and the design of the layout. Oh and I love big titles on a layout too.

So for this layout I used the MOSD Baseball Intricacy and to have the intricacy have a "dirty baseball field" feel to it I sprayed it with Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist and then after a minute I blotted and rubbed the mist into the paper for subtle yet "grungy" look to the paper. Next I used a MOSD Perfectly Shaped Home Plate page and I inked the edges of it with My Mind's Eye ink using a lighter and darker brown. I used some Basic Gray paper and naked chipboard as well as some Thickers and had this layout done quickly!
If you too have special baseball pictures that you want to scrap a GREAT purchase would be the MOSD Baseball collection! It comes with the baseball intricacy, play ball topper, baseball monogram, and a baseball edger! Add a couple of the Perfectly shaped home plate pages and you can create a couple layouts of your own! So now go grab up some of these fun MOSD products and create your own pages today!

I created a 'school days' card using MOSD Perfectly Shaped - Pudgy Rectangle and School Days Edger.
I started with a pre-made card, covered it with patterned paper.
Trimmed the MOSD Perfectly Shaped - Pudgy Rectangle to 5.25 wide by 4; I added patterned paper and then attached it to the pre-made card using pop dots.
I trimmed the MOSD School Days Edger to fit on the MOSD Perfectly Shaped - Pudgy Rectangle; I added pop dots under the apple die cuts and then outlined the School Days Edger.
I trimmed the transparency words from the School Days Edger kit and attached them to the MOSD Perfectly Shaped - Pudgy Rectangle using Making Memories green staples.
Finally, I added a Quickutz die cut owl, two Fancy Pants pins tied with black sheer ribbon.
With the end of the school year rapidly approaching, I think this would be a great card for my DS's third great teacher!
Thanks for stoppin' by the MOSD Blog!
