My project is a Gatefold Mini Album featuring the Alphabet Foil Gold Rubons and the Garden Journal collection. To create the base of the album, I followed a you tube tutorial by Ginger Ropp (My Sisters Scrapper ) It is her Sweet Day Mini Album Tutorial. The base is chip board covered with Kraft card stock. It was my canvas!!
The gold rub-ons are so rich that they look like gold leaf embedded in the paper. They are so easy to use and rub on with perfection. To enhance the gold, I created a jeweled closure using gold jewelry finds and seam binding, that were strung through pink wide eyelets that were set in the cover. I also edged the album with Gold glitter paste.The glitter paste was easily applied using my fingers. Just dip your finger on the pot, and rub it onto your surface.
I simply love to incorporate my jewelry finding into the closures and hanging dangles of my mini albums. It just lends a charm to them . The wide eyelets are from We R Memory Keepers.
This is a side view of the album. I created one that was a little on the thick side as to fill the pages with dimensional embellies. I just love the way the glitter paste sparkles
No garden is complete without butterflies. On the back of the album, I used modeling paste with the stencils doing floral corners and the 3 smallest butterflies down the middle.
On the inside of the album there are 6 large envelope/sleeve pages that each contain a journaling card that slips into the sleeve. On a few of the pages as in this one, there is a pocket on the sleeve itself that holds tags and additional cards. I used the Gold rub-ons to spell the word "flowers." The gold throughout the album is a little treat to add to the elegance.
This is a closeup of one of the cards in the album that feature the Gold rub-ons. I created a few pull out tags. You can adhere photos to the back of the tags.
These are 2 of the 6 cards that were pulled from the sleeves. The lined pattern on the Delight paper was perfect as you can use these cards to journal on. The opposite side of the cards have patterned paper and plenty of room for photos. They slide easily back into the sleeves.
The top of each fold on the cards I placed a button. Once the button was adhered to the fold, I used my Cropodile to punch a holes over the existing holes and placed a piece of string through and tied a bow.
Just a closeup of the buttons.I adhered the buttons to the flap, then punched a hole through the buttons and the flap using my Cropodile, then pulled some jute through and tied it into a bow.
These are the left and right sides with the slide cards still in the pockets. One side can be used for photos and the other side has the patterned paper that looks like fine stationary with lines that can be used for journaling.
As you can see it is chunky enough for filling with creative embellies if you choose.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope that you are inspired to use the Foil rub-ons to add that special elegance to your next project. Please visit The Bo Bunny Blog for more inspiration from the designers, Tips, tricks and previews you wont want to miss!!
