Slice Elite and Zootopia

I have been working on a gift album for a friend lately and have finally finished it! I can't wait to give it to her this Sunday. The album is of her grandson and he is adorable. I can't show you actual pages from the album because it's not mine to share but I did want to share some of the cute little designs that I cut using my Slice Elite and the Zoo-topia design card.
There are even some words included on this design card and I am so in love with the shadow feature! It just adds so much to the designs.

Here is the little frog that I cut and I am loving the layering feature. I normally wouldn't have used the polka dot paper but I was trying to tie in the papers from the album. I adhered him with dimensional adhesive too.
I love clouds on layouts and these clouds are so easy to do because you can quickly change the size and it even has a layering feature for them but I just wanted basic white fluffy clouds. I used dimensional adhesive for the little ones to define them a little more from the big one.

I have to tell you how much I am in love with this tree! It was so easy to do and I even used this wood grain paper from AC. I used the same polka dot paper that I did with the frog to tie it in once again. Please excuse my horrible zig zag stitching here... sometimes my sewing machine does this and I don't know why. The back always looks perfect so it must be something with the tension in the top thread? I have no idea what I'm talking about!
Here is my absolute favorite! This sweet little boy was a lion for Halloween last year so this was perfect for the page. I cut his face out of kraft paper and I some how got a smudge of sharpie on his face from when I colored his nose ( I didn't want to have to cut the face again in black just to get his nose) so I re-cut his face in the kraft and then adhered it with foam adhesive so now he is dimensional and I like it even more! I love how fixing little mistakes can make things even better. As the saying goes...
"There are no mistakes, only the opportunity to embellish!"
