Keep Growing Mixed Up Album
June 08, 2023
Hello Craft Friends!
Dana here! I'm back to share my first project for the month of June! You probably know how much I love creating mini albums and tags. So today's project features Clear Scraps Mixed Up Album Click here which combines both chipboard and mini tag together! The papers I chose to decorate my album are from Crate Paper new Gingham Garden collection!
To begin I took some Folkart Vintage White acrylic paint and painted all around the edges and along the sides of my album pages, both front and back. Let dry. Here's a photo of some of my painted album pages. There are 6 pages total.
I will be inking all my papers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. I rounded the corners of my papers using my rounded corner punch before gluing onto my page. I recommend using Beacon glue to adhere your papers to your chipboard pages.
Tag 1, front cover: I diecut a patterned leaves paper using a scalloped die in my stash. I adhered to my page using foam dots. I fussycut out one of the floral images with leaves, applied a floral sticker over top and adhered to the center using foam dots. This adds dimension. I glued a sentiment at the top and a few sequins! Here's a closeup look!
Tag 1 back of front cover: I diecut an Oval shape using another die and applied to my page using foam dots. I adhered "Our Happy Life" foam sticker over top and a few star stickers. Here's a photo!
Tag 2 backside: I glued a Journaling card to the page, added a photo and a few enamel heart stickers. Here's a closeup photo!
Tag 3: I cut out a pink Journaling card and rounded the top corners before adhering on my page. I cut out a small wood tag "Count My Blessings" and applied using foam dots. Then added a brad onto the top hole on my tag! Here's a photo!
Tag 3 : I cut out a wood/white floral paper to measure 3 &1/8 inches x 4 7/8 and rounded all corners and glued to my page. Using foam dots, I added sentiment (I cut the one end as a pendant flag) then applied a butterfly sticker and a few enamel dots! Here's a closeup look!
Tag 3 backside: I cut a butterfly paper to measure 3 & 1/8 x 4 & 7/8 inches, scored 1/2 inch on the left side to make a flip page. Underneath I glued a pink polka dot paper (same size) chose a "Butterfly Land" piece from the stationery pack and scored 1/4 inch at the top. Then glued towards the top to create a mini flip page. Underneath you could add a photo if you desire. I added a butterfly sticker on the bottom right corner. Here's a photo!
Tag 4: I cut a blue floral paper to measure 3 & 1/8 x 6 inches, and glued to my page. I applied some butterfly washi tape along the bottom edge. Using foam dots, I adhered a floral pocket. Inside my pocket, I trimmed down a pink Journaling card, applied a floral sticker and Tim Holtz paper doll with foam dots! Heres a closeup!
Tag 4 Backside: I glued a green gingham paper keeping the border strip in place at the top edge. I applied some washi tape floral stickers along the bottom and washi tape sentiments at the top! Then added a photo in the center at a slight angle and a few enamel hearts! Here's a photo!
Tag 5: I adhered a floral paper with the border strip in tact. I adhered a match book ephemera piece in the center, added a tiny photo inside. On the bbottomof my mstch book I applied acouple enamel hearts on each side of the sentiment. I glued a chipboard sentiment along the bottom edge to finish! Here's acouple closeup photos!
Tag 5 Backside: I applied a floral paper with the border strip in place. Taking one of the Journaling cards, I made a pocket, added a border punch along the top edge of my pocket, using some orange cardstock, from my stash. I tucked a few ephemera pieces, and a tiny tag inside my pocket! Here's a closeup look!
Tag 6: I adhered another patterned paper to my page, with the border strip intact at the top. I added a ephemera note piece to my page using foam dots. I added a photo and butterfly brad over the top hole. Then applied a butterfly sticker on the upper right corner! Here's a photo!
To finish my album, I took some pink ribbon and Thread it through both holes, then tied into a bow!
