Flippin' Out with Tellen's Place

As soon as I saw these bathing beauties digi stamps at Tellen's Place, I knew I had to make something with them for my nieces. My sister-in-law recently posted a video of them jumping into the pool for the first time, and I decided to make my life really complicated and make a flip-book out of it.

Flips-books are a pretty simple concept, but getting photos to line up isn't so easy. Since this was a movie, I ended up creating the images from screenshots. Yes, it took me forever. Yes, it was worth it!

I made a fold-out envelope to keep it in:

Thank you TLC Creations for the gorgeous digi paper that I used for the flip-book cover, name plate, and punch-flowers.
The ribbon is from very first Stampin' Dymonz blog candy!
It was a huge hit -- we received the best thank-you call from the sweet recipients (ages 4 & 5).
