I made this little mini album over the weekend, in between dreaded housework, LOTS of ironing, kids sleep-over and a visit from some friends - needless to say I started it on Friday and didn't finish 'till this morning!
I am currently preparing the tutorial for the mini album so that I can post it later today or tomorrow, so if you like it dont forget to check back!For the image I've used a Sarah Kay image from the Christmas collection (which I borrowed as mine is still making its way to me in the post!) and the monograms are new stamps designed by Traci at Particraft - these are the lower case alphas, and there is also an upper case, I do love these as they are big and so versatile. The background papers were a free download from Shabby Princess Designs. I have been experimenting a little lately with download papers and have found them to be very useful especially when I'm doing a specific theme and I don't necessarily have the appropriate papers in my stock. The Sarah Kay image I have stamped with "Black Soot" distress ink, blended around the edges and just added a hint of colour to the tree and their cheeks again with distress inks (worn lipstick, peeled paint) and I have added some stickles for sparkle. Inside their are two small envolopes on the inside of each front, at the back there is a pocket to take a cd and the flaps are ready to have photos and journaling added.
