Family Mini Album

Hi everyone!! Sandie here today, with a little mini album inspiration for you. I started this mini last week and, as the kiddos are out of school for summer, I work on it as and when I can.. it will be my summer project, lol.

Products Used:
Prima Papers, Butterfly, Flowers, Vintage Trinkets & Shabby Chic Treasures.
Bare Chipboard Tabbed Album
White Acrylic Paint
Pearls, Ribbon & Lace

Before covering my pages I first painted them with white acrylic paint, using a baby wipe for a distressed look. Then I started with the front cover. I lay everything down without adhering it to get an idea of what I want to do - adding layers and different elements. Once I'm happy with it I start to adhere them into place. 

I always use 3D foam tape and dots to add plenty of dimension between layers. Don't be afraid to layer things up on top of each other. Using dies can add extra elements and shapes. 

Embellish as you please. I tend to use a lot of pearls and pearl swirls, love them :) Add a little ribbon and lace to your book rings to give it a finished look. 

Hope you like :)
