Butterflies All Around!

Now how sweet is the new Beautiful Wings embosslit from Stampin' Up? I love love it and if you haven't already bought it, do it now!! It's been on backorder for over a month now so get your order in and wait in line! Here's a few projects we made at the last two workshops I held. 
This photo album is super easy. Cut out 2 sheets of card stock for the base (7 1/4" x 5") and score the top sheet at 1" in for the spine of the album. The cover white sheet on the cover is 6" x 4 3/4". The rest is up to you! I opted for brads to hold everything in place on the side but I wouldn't use anything less than sticky strip! The inside I used some translucent medium envelopes from Stampin' Up. 

Can you tell how much I love Rich Razzleberry? This pop-up card tutorial can be found on Splitcoaststampers. Instead of cutting a slit along the middle of the card for the "pop-up" section, I saw on someone's blog a couple years ago to use the word window punch and punched out a slot so my "pop-up" piece didn't have to be flat. Alrighty, off to bed!

Love both of your cards, especially the second! The touch of green peeking out behind the butterflies is amazing. I just was able to work with this die this past weekend and was amazed at the details of the embossing, but surprised too on how tiny they were!
