Hello friends! I'm here to share a mini album I created using the 5x7 Chipboard Album along with a few favorite Clear Scraps products! Its almost summer and most of us would be planning our next vacation. I know for us we will be pretty much staying home...so the next best thing is scrapping a favorite trip! My husband and I were fortunate to travel to Costa Rica this past December!
I used the Sanddollar Chipboard Embellishment Shapes to decorate the inside of my book. Here is one of the chipboard that I adhered at the bottom left corner of my journaling. I even placed a brad through the center and accented with coral bakers twine.
I'm going to show the steps of the technique I used to embellish my chipboard. I began by painting the fronts with acrylic paint in white.
Once dry, I applied embossing ink then used glitter embossing powder; holographic for the starfish and blue for the sand dollar.
I utilized my 12x12 Acrylic Sheets to create extra pages for my book. Here, I cut two separate pieces of acrylic to create a flap (I used cardstock and a bone folder to create the connecting piece).
Here, you can see that I used the sand dollar as my accent at the bottom of the pocket. I cut down the photos and attached half scallop circles with brads.
This is a little 4x6 accent page I created to add in extra embellishments. This is also a good way to add journaling or additional photos.
I secured the 4x6 Sunrise Stencil over my acrylic and colored with alcohol ink using an applicator.
For my next page, I utilized washi tape to create a way to flip up the top photo. I affixed a tab at the bottom for easy lifting and secured with a staple.
Here is a photo of the photo underneath which is adhered directly the the chipboard page.
Here, I scored patterned paper to create a flap and add an extra page.
