Anniversary Mini Album


I'm here to share an album I made on order for a friend's wedding anniversary.

The base of the album is black cardstock and the patterned papers are from Papericious' Pretty Affair pack. For the outer cover, I've used a designer silver cardstock with an awesome shimmer and texture. A wide red ribbon and a couple of butterflies adorn the cover. The butterflies are diecut using Sizzix Thinlits Winged Beauties from Dress My Craft's gold mirror cardstock. I've added a few pearl stickers for interest.

The sentiment is stamped from two different stampsets and heat embossed in black. The base is an oval diecut from red cardstock, which I've toned down by inking it with gold ink from Itsy Bitsy. It is adhered to another design diecut from gold mirror cardstock. The flowers are store-bought. I've diecut a few leaves, colored them using Altenew Parrot ink and attached to the sentiment along with the flowers. I've also decorated the right corners using metal corner charms.

This is my first time making an album of this size, and I wasn't quite aware of how to make the spine and binding. I went with my own version of holding them together with ribbon, and to provide spacing in between each page, I chose double sided tape. Guess I should have learnt about different album bindings before I started!

The inner pages are pretty simple with photos added directly and a lot of stamping. I've used love sentiments from Craftyscrappers and Mudra stamps. The fairy is from The Peek A Boo Designs' Magical Fairies stampset. There are a few diecuts and embellishments too.
