Hello crafty friends! I am back this month with a new collection from Graphic 45 Ephemera Queen Collection. Yes this was the collection that was sent to me by Jeri and Cher over at Fotobella.com. So here is what I created this month! I created this mini album using this beautiful collection. If you want this collection please click here.
How I began this project, I used a chipboard album from Frank Garcia Memory Hardware, I then painted the edges using Folk Art Antique White Acrylic Paint. Once that paint had dried I began by cutting the papers from the Graphic 45 Ephemera Queen collection. I usually like to cut all of the papers for the pages then I adhere them. This process works for me but you can do this however is easiest for you. I adhered my papers using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever. This glue works great, papers won’t buckle and you barely need to put anything down and it sticks.
Once all of my papers were adhered , I used a flower punch from The Paper Studio to make pockets on a few pages. I also made some tuck spots in place of pockets. For the photo mats on this album , I used papers from the Graphic 45 Ephemera Queen Patterns and Solids paper pad. I also used some American Crafts Colored Card Stock as well.
I used some of the stickers and ephemera pieces from this collection to embellish the pages of this mini album. Instead of just adhering them to the pages, I used pop dots on these.
I worked on the cover of this album, where I had already adhered the paper. Secondly I adhered onto the spine, a piece of corset fabric from my stash. Then layered a piece of the patterns & solids of the collection. I then added one of the 4x6 Journaling cards from this same collection onto that pattern piece using pop dots . Also added a thin cotton lace trim around the journaling card like a frame. had some resin pieces that I had previously made and I adhered them to each of the four corners of this journaling card.
Then finished it off by adding a small flower cluster on the front left hand side of the cover. I was thinking I should have added some stickles on the cover of the album, maybe I’ll do that later. This Graphic 45 Ephemera Queen collection is beautiful and I hope that you head over to Fotobella.com where you can find this collection and many more products for your paper crafting needs. I’ll be back next week with another project using this amazing bundle collection.
