I can't tell you how much fun I have using Want2Scrap bling! I truly enjoy using awesome products for my projects, it just makes it a lot more fun!
Yesterday, I was totally inspired by Marion Smith's tutorial on her binding album. I was instantly inspired to create my own mini album. So, yes I love bling, I love flowers, buttons, and mini albums. These things are just a few things that really describes me.
My album is 4 x 6 and I used chipboard. I covered the chipboard with Donna Salazar Denim Sheets that can be purchased at Want2Scrap online store www.want2scrap.com. Now, I don't get paid by Want2Scrap, I don't work for them, nor do I design for them, but I can tell you this much about their products, they are AWESOME! The best thing is that their Nestabling goes perfect with Spellbinder Nestabilities, and they come in various colors and designs!!!! So if you haven't done so yet, go check them out.
Now, let's get back to that album, I used Scor Tape to adhere the denim sheets to the covers. My pages are actually Canson watercolor paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I cut the water color pages to 6 x 8" and scored each page at 4" I had a total of 7 cut. I then cut my favorite cardstock ever Kraft paper to 3 3/4" x 5 3/4" and a pieces of Wild Roses by Colorbok to fit the Kraft paper which were 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". I sewed these onto the Kraft paper and then glued onto the watercolor pages that I had already cut and scored.
I pierced 4 holes on the pages and used hemp string to bind the pages together. Now you can watch the tutorial at Marion Smith Designs webpage. It was very easy to do and very beautiful.
My cover I distressed by using acrylic paint and Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The Denim sheets by Donna Salazar worked great for this project. I used Want2Scrap black swirl bling and Donna's Hand Drawn Swirls, which I painted and distressed. My inside cover I adhered the the Eiffel Tower Diecut also found at www.want2scrap.com. My digital images are from Iralamija's collection Heart collage and Love Mail, so check out her online store as well.
My flowers are from Wild Orchard and so are the pins. The lacy is just something I picked up at a thrift shop. I hope you enjoy this beautiful mini album. Please leave me a comment.
