Winter Wide Scallop Acrylic Album
January 10, 2023
Hello crafty friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a mini book I created that is all about winter! Using the Wide Scallop Acrylic Album and a few easy techniques, my project was fun and quick to put together. I love this album because of the cascading pages as well as that acrylic is my favorite!
My go to medium for acrylic is using alcohol ink! I chose a fun icy blue color and applied it around the edges of each page.
Once my alcohol ink was dry, I used a dauber to apply StazOn Opaque to the edges of the acrylic to give it a "snowy" look. I was careful to apply the ink to the side of the acrylic opposite of where my alcohol ink was. This prevents any mixing of colors.
Here is a close up of the front of my album! The first page is only 3 x 3 inches (not including the scallops).
On the inside of the front cover, I left a spot for journaling that I will add at a later time.
I found it easiest to use wallet sized photos with this particular album as they fit best. I always mat my photos onto white cardstock because 1.) I'm a creature of habit and 2.) I love the way it looks! LOL
Here, I created a pocket with foam tape behind my photo to add a tag. This is an easy way to add more embellishments or photos to your albums!
As my pages become longer, I decided to use two photos instead of a single picture.
This page is just a fun banner sticker that I embellished with stickers and die cut shapes!

After I was finished, I added chrome book rings that I accented with ribbon. I tied on a cute metal charm with jute.
