One of a Kind Mixable Lacey Album

Hello Clear Scraps friends, Leah here with you today and I am sharing a mini album. If you follow my blog, you'll know that last month my daughter lost her dear sweet cat, Hamburger. He lived a long, adventurous life! I wanted to create an album my daughter could pick up when she needed to see his sweet face, and the Mixable Lacey 8x8 album was perfect for this.

As you can see, it had both acrylic and chipboard pages. For this album, I sprayed Spray Glitter on the backside of all the Acrylic pages. I gave it two good coats and let it dry 10 minutes.
For the cover, once the glitter dried, I painted with Twinkling H20's over top of the glitter application to add some color. Once that dried, I adhered my pattern paper to the back of all the Acrylic pages so the glitter would not escape.

It's kind of hard to capture, but the look against the acrylic is super gorgeous.

I love interactive mini albums and adding in a lot of photos!

For the focal photo I applied glue to the bottom and both sides only to create a pocket. The love photo tag can be removed to reveal another photograph.

I left little spots through-out the album so my daughter could add her own journaling and thoughts about Hamburger.

The acrylic and chipboard together make such a sturdy, well made album.
