Hello everyone! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share one of the new Slimline Albums just released by Clear Scraps! I am a big fan of all of the mini books Susan and Jim design and these are no exception! With Easter coming up next month, I wanted to create a book that I could put this year's photos into. For my project, I used the Chipboard Wave Slimline Album which measures 5.5 x 11 inches.
I also included the new Scallop With Holes Chipboard Borders that coordinate with the Slimline Albums as well as the new Easter Egg Mini Shaker Shape! I painted each using a light coat of white acrylic paint and allowed to dry.
I backed the chipboard base of the shaker with patterned paper using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive then added in some tiny, colorful sequins.
Here is the finished result after adding a few stickers and die cuts to the front and around my shaker. I found it was best to adhere the shaker again using the Beacon Adhesive; you know you will get a firm bond between elements and will not have to worry about items falling off.
Using a light blue chalk paint, I painted the outer edges of both sides of my chipboard pages since I planned on covering each with patterned paper. I cut each piece 4.5 x 10.75 to fit just inside the chipboard and to allow the wave edges to be seen.
I adhered my Chipboard Scalloped Border with the Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I then used a Big Bite to punch my holes but you can also line up your border piece and mark with a pencil and punch before adhering.
