Inspiration | Scrapbooking
I am working on five albums as gifts to my girlfriends - the album documents our trip to Maui for my 40th birthday. I am inspired by Ali's mini album project here and this gal - Christine Middlecamp. HOly COW! Have you been following her Embellished Paper Doily tutorials?!!! At first when I looked at them I was just in awe - amazed by 'heavily embellished style'. I knew I had to try her technique out on these gift albums...
They are embellished thick and let's talk about using up some of your stash! The only thing that I bought new were the Martha Stewart Doilys.
Lots of foam dots - I am sure you have plenty of these! This was really fun to do and I was inspired by #12 on Christine's blog. Not sure if I am going to put these on the front of the albums or on the inside. I don't think they would hold up to well on the outside.
I am in the process of prepping the albums - painting them brown so it mimics wood.
