Accordion Flip Album Card

I thought I'd better schedule this post before our electricity goes out... We are expecting a tropical storm Flossie soon and everyone's kinda bracing themselves for the worst.  Normally, the Hilo seems to somehow escape all the bad storms and other civil defense emergencies untouched, but I think this time we might be feeling some effects.  So thought I'd better get this ready in case that happens.  Oh, and in the event there is no post tomorrow, you'll know why!

Before I share my project, I just wanted to remind everyone to check out our guest DT's blog... Kerry! Thanks Kerry for helping us out this month!  Go check her out here...

And don't forget!  We also have all the Zodiac girls back this time for some all new release samples.  Check them out here:


LindaDebi, Eva, will also share their sea creature projects with you!  I'm so excited to see what everyone does this month!

As for me, I was inspired by Eunice's card featured here... I finally got my hands on that die by Sizzix called the Accordion flip album  or something like that.  Anyway, I love acetate cards and am always intrigued by them.  When I saw Eunice's card, I knew I wanted to try doing the same with the new sea creatures set.  


Remember what I said about the sea creatures being the perfect friends for our mermaids?  Well, I decided to add Eliana to the project so she could hang out with some of them.  Here she is!  Talking to one of the turtles...


I didn't have anything that looked like seaweed, so I just used some of my yellow stickles and made my own.


Here's one of the starfish...


And everyone's favorite Puffer fish...


And the dolphin talking to the...

Octopus!


And here's the other starfish.. decided to color him yellow.


And one more turtle...

Hope you guys are enjoying all the projects so far!  Wish me luck in getting one more post up!

  6. I SO love this card with all the creatures suspended in air (or should I say the sea). I keep staring at it wondering how you did it!
