Flag Album - Guest Design at Nakshathra Designz!

Hello Crafty Folks!

Here is my project for guest designing again at Nakshathra Designz! This time, I have tried my hands on a different kind of album for the first time - Flag Album :) And that too with the gorgeous Mandala paper pack! I'm just totally in love with this pack! Check out how awesome these papers are in this album!

Back of the album - keeping it plain

Side view

I'm in love with shaker elements these days! Made a shaker with diecuts from Gina Marie scallop stitched circles and sequins in blue and silver shades. Flowers are from Itsy Bitsy and the butterfly is a diecut from Sizzix Winged Beauties.

Watch this video to know how to make a shaker card by Kelly! It is part of the series 'What Would Kelly Make' by Simon Says Stamp.

Memories stamp is from Craftyscrappers and heat embossed in gold. I've mounted the sentiment onto a diecut from Gina Marie scallop stitched rectangles, using foam tape. Added pearls for more interest.

This is how it looks on opening!

Isn't this lotus gorgeous!! I love how it suits perfectly for the sides of the album! 

I've kept the embellishments to the minimum inside the album, as I didn't want to cover the beautiful papers :) Also, once pics are added, matching elements can be added later.

A few more glitter butterflies

It's always good to see any creation in real, than photos right? Here it is!! :)
