Mini Album Swap

Here is the mini album that I made for a swap. It's very bright, isn't it?! I had a lot of fun putting this all together. I used some new DSP and ribbon, and started making my way thru my stash of rhinestone brads. Now that I have made myself start using them instead of hoarding them, I'm lovin' them even more!
I also used the Faux Suede technique to make the paper flowers. Basically I roughed up the paper, crumpled it, then peeled the 2 layers of paper apart. Then I ran them thru the Big Shot with the Blossom Party die. I love how they turned out. I will never buy Primas again!
You can't really tell in this picture, but I also put Crystal Effects over the "Hey, friend" so it's raised and shiny. Of course, I colored all the letters first!
Now on to the supplies I used.
  • Stamps: Friends Rock, Crazy Cool
  • Paper: Summer Sun, Barely Banana, Pixie Pink, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, ONly Orange, Kaleidescope DSP
  • Ink: Soft Suede, In- Color markers
  • Other: rhinestones, Top Note and Blossom Party dies with Big Shot, distressing tool, rhinestone brad, In-Color polka dot ribbon, Crop-A-Dile, book rings, cardboard from food boxes for the covers, sponges
