Spring Blooms Chipboaard Album

This little chipboard album was a delight to make. I loved using the little Heart of Texas chipboard album as the canvas for this mini album. After applying the gorgeous Basic Grey patterned paper , I used a flat white acrylic paint around the edges to give it a shabby chic look. Then, I used a marker to draw the stitches around each page. 

Here are the supplies I used: 
Basic Grey Sweet Threads patterned paper
Basic Grey Sweet Threads Cardstock Stickers
Maya Road Vintage Trinkets, Alterable Crystals, Small
Maya Road Trinket Beads, Hanging Chandelier
Maya Road Love Mini Chipboard Set
Maya Road Birds With Cages Mini Chipboard Set
Maya Road Alterable Vintage Lace Flowers

Other supplies used are:
Maya Mists               
Martha Stewart
Prima flowers
May Arts Ribbons

The lovely embellies from The Crafty Scrapper added such sweet touches and made a beautiful setting to show off the photos. 

Stop by The Crafty Scrapper and see this sweet, sweet album for yourself!

You're Sew Special

This LO uses Jillibean pattern paper, and lots of fun Maya Road shapes from the “Still Sew Cute Chipboard Set”. In the area around the picture I used Maya Road Maya Mists (Granny Smith Apple Green) and a Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen to create the oval frame before adding the picture. Also spritzed with the Maya Mist was the Mini Triangle Banner Canvas Pieces which are also by Maya Road. For the title, I used Maya Road (Jonathan) Mini Alphabet Chipboard and October Afternoon Mini Market Stickers over a Maya Road Coaster. The Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page “Loops” set gave an old fashioned look. Also included was a little Jenni Bowlin Vintage Style (black) Button and a Maya Road Kraft Scroll Frame Journaling Tag. The chipboard pieces were painted with Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint (Fired Brick). After the paint dried, I inked the edges of the chipboard pieces with Staz On Ink (Jet Black).

Some of the techniques that I used were border punching, painting, masking, sewing, inking and a little calligraphy on the journaling tag.
