Explore butterfly mini album

 Happy Monday everyone. Grace here to share with you a mini album I made using the Butterfly acrylic brag bag.

Explore mini

Explore butterfly mini (1)
I love how acrylic is such a neutral and clean base that you can pretty much "flavor" it up anyway you like it. In this particular project, I used some Viva Decor pearl pen inking the edges to emphasize the shape of the acrylics. I then added some papers from the Ad Lib collection of My Mind's Eye. I love how the colors just pop against the clear acrylic foundation.

Here are some more photos of the project....

another beauty of this specific acrylic album is when it's opened, then you can really see the cute shape of the butterfly. Isn't it fun?

So there you have it. Acrylics are so fun to play with. Make sure you try one today!

Till next time,


Corona Del Mar

A few years back we discovered a nice, semi-private beach in part of Corona Del Mar, near Newport Beach, CA. It is a bit of a hike down a crazy hill but well worth it -- privacy, tide pools, clean's still my favorite. This summer our first beach trip was to Corona Del Mar. Our niece and nephews joined us and we had a grand time.
I used a Clear Scraps Chipboard Uturn Album to capture these wonderful "first of summer" memories of my family. The arrows lend a fun, whimsical feel to the album while the beach themed papers I chose help continue the beach theme throughout the book. The Uturn Album is perfect for any occasion that includes action or traveling - change the paper to change the theme but the action of the album remains the same. To cover the pages of the album, I adhered them to paper and then cut them out with a craft knife.
I covered the 3 holes in the album pages with the patterned paper and punched new binding holes with the Bind It All machine. I then added extra tags, postcards, and kraft envelopes as mini pages between the chipboard pages. I used 1" Antique Brass O-Wires to bind the book.  I then added photos and embellishments.
The largest star from the Clear-N-Chip Carson's Park pack nests perfectly in the star on the second page of the Uturn Album. I glued the acrylic star from the Carson's Park pack to coordinating paper and added it to the star shaped tab on the Uturn album.
The Uturn Album creates a sense of action and fun in this summer themed mini. The possibilities with this album are limitless!

Vacation Word Album!!!


Good Monday morning everyone, hope you all had a good weekend!  it's me Adora!!  

And today, I will share with you  this project I made using the

"Clear Scraps Custom Acrylic/Chipboard Word Album" !

I wanted this album  to show  how much fun this vacation was for my family.  I took so much pictures of  fun highlights during this vacation that I wanted to incorporate in this album.  And for technique I used to create these pages I did  a lot of tracing and cutting;  leaving some pages uncovered allowing to view multiple  pages at a time; using transparencies, rub-ons, stamping which becomes the design element for the next page; and  then adding some embellishments for texture.

Hope you'll  enjoy looking at this project as much as I enjoyed creating it. :) thanks!!

Other Supplies Used are by Pink Paislee, 7Gypsies, Heidi Swapp and House of 3 Printables.
