Mini Photo Album

I was doing some moving of stuff around today and ran across some of these fabulous little mini photo albums so I thought I'd play with one when I finished my task. Well, the album kept calling to me and I did not finish the task. I still have a few things to put back in the storage closet but I'm not sure they will fit in it. I found lots of stuff to play with but this is what I chose to leave out.

I think I got the albums a while ago from Oriental Trading Company.

Don't use your tape runner across the cover, use it on your paper or card stock. My tape runner took some of the cover with it as I was rolling it. I think these covers are paper mache. They are pretty firm like chipboard but they are brown like the paper mache stuff. Anyway, don't use your tape runner directly on it.

I put the Whisper White and Soft Sky card stock in the snowflake Cuddlebug folder. I liked the texture on it. For those of you demonstrators who don't want to use the Cuddlebug folder for your album, you can get a nice effect by using the Snowflake Jumbo Wheel. For the Soft Sky side use White Craft Ink and for the Whisper White side use the Soft Sky ink.

I used the Giga scallop punch and a large circle punch. I did cut out the snowman and used dimensionals to attach it to the white. I colored the tree with the new Wild Wasabi color and then in the darker areas I added Garden Green. It seemed to be the color that looked best with the Wasabi.

I masked the tree off and stamped the snowflakes in the background. I used Soft Sky for them. The snowman was colored in using the new in colors and a blender pen. I put the album together and then taped the scalloped piece on so I could make sure it was centered to the eye!

This was a fun little project to do and it sure beat arranging that storage closet!!! LOL

Thank you for stopping by,
