so I lied…


Yesterday I said I’d be back today with a Sketch Tuesday post for Skipping Stones Design. Not so. I’m still learning the posting schedule, and today is new stamp set sneak peek day over at Skipping Stones Design. so head on over there for a sneak at a couple of awesome new sets coming soon. Release day for these sets is the 15th. Be back here on Friday for a SSD blog hop featuring one of the new sets.

So today instead of a sketch challenge card I thought I’d share the mini album I made for my new sister-in-law with photos from the bridal shower we threw for her. We had each guest write down some words of wisdom, advice or encouragement for the bride and groom which I incorporated into the album. Here is just a sampling of the album.

I used coasters from Michael’s for the base of the album. I layered the photos onto the pages and painted around the edges with white acrylic paint. Then I added the journaling that I printed out and embellished it with rub-ons, flowers, chipboard, stickers, etc. Then I held all the pages together with a binding ring. There are about 16 pages in all, so it turned out to be a pretty thick little album. Using the coasters was a fun and inexpensive way to incorporate their wedding colors into the album.

That’s all for today. I hope you like!!
