Hello crafty friends!! Jeanne here today sharing with you my first design team project for the month of May . I hope everyone has been keeping themselves and their families safe and staying home during this trying time! I’ve been keeping busy creating fun, inspiring and uplifting projects! This mini album here is one of a few creations I made using the beautiful Bo Bunny Garden Grove Collection I Want It All Bundle. I was sent this collection my Design Team package for Fotobella.
From the moment I seen this beautiful collection, I knew that I would be creating a mini album for a friend! Bo Bunny Garden Grove is a beautiful collection , the colors are so soft, I absolutely love it!
Details of the Album
For this album I used the square 6.5 X 6.5 chipboard album from Frank Garcia’s Memory Hardware Collection. Along the edges of the album, I used Nuvo Mousse by Tonic Studios Toasted Almond. Applying it, using a make up sponge and with a little water on my mixed media mat. I, then picked out my papers and cut them to size. Usually, I create the cover last on my albums. Next, I picked out the trim I was gonna use for my closure. I usually don’t put on these albums since you can’t do too much dimensional embellishing on these albums, but I did it mainly for appearance.
I created side pockets and regular pockets on this album and using a decorative punch on them as well. Then, I added some thin dainty laces on the pockets and some of the ephemera from the collection. Next, I used foam dots on the ephemera because I love the little bit of dimension that it creates. Then, inside of the pockets I cut up one of the sheets that had some cut outs, which is perfect for journaling. For the photo mats, I used some ivory card stock from my stash, and used the camera stamp from Maggie Holmes.
Finishing Touches with Bo Bunny Products
For the cover, I did some layering of papers, using thin pieces of card board in between the layers since I was out of foam tape and didn’t want to use too many of the foam dots . I’ve used card board before on my mini albums. I took some chipboard pieces from the Bo Bunny collection on the cover and used some Prima Marketing flowers and a wooden button as well. Finishing it off by adding some splatters, using Pearl Agua Pigment Inks from Brutus Monroe, giving it a more shabby chic look.
I am very excited to share with you the other projects that I have created using this beautiful collection.Hurry over to Fotobellla.com to purchase this bundle before it sells out! I will be back next week with another project! Until then check out the rest of the design team amazing projects!
