A Sweet 16 Album Part 2

"We interrupt our regularly scheduled program... "
I know that on my to last post on the Die Cut Divas Blog I said that I would unveil the rest of this album on the 21st. But since we have a BLOG HOP on the 20th, Terry asked me to change my regularly scheduled post so that more people can enjoy our Thanksgiving & Christmas ideas next week!

So, here's the rest of my Sweet 16 Album. (I apologize in advance for the lighting in the photos. I did not realize how bad it was until after I had given the album to Terry!)

Here is the cover again. I used the Pennant Album in acetate. The great thing about ordering albums (or ANYTHING) Creative Cuts & More is that you can order in any color, material & number of pages you want!! For this, I ordered 6 clear pages to play with. Then I ordered tons of Birthday-related dies in the kraft color because I knew that I could always alter them with inks & Glimmer Mists!
(There are a ton of photos because I wanted to show you how you can see the layers through to each page...)

Can you see the shape it's taking when fully opened??

Ta Da! Instead of a traditional binding at the side, I punched my hole along the tips of the banner & used a binding post to attach them (this album come without any holes punched so that you can put them where you want them). It opens really easily into this flower. I tried not to make the pages too bulky so that it would open nicely!
Below, is just another look at each page individually & a listing of supplies I used...
Cover: Cupcake & Balloon
I cut apart 2 identical cupcakes for the above effect. I embossed & inked the lower part of the cupcake & Glimmer Misted the top portion to look like chocolate. Next I glimmered the balloon & used stickles to write the 16 & highlight the cupcake.
You can see this cute Shopping Bag (coming soon) through the front. 
I LOVE this little bag! I placed a couple of pieces of paper inside to resemble tissue, added a shipping tag to pull out for journaling & TINY jewelry tag that says "for you."
More balloons with Glimmer Mist

Party Hats & Gifts coming soon!
I used stickles to fill in the polka dots on the hats,
covered the presents with paper & stickled the bows.
Cake slice coming soon!
I covered the cake slice die with a couple different layers -
the one in the middle has strawberry paper surrounded by the other "chocolate" layers! YUM!
Thanks for looking & see you on the 20th for the
