Hi everyone! :)
Here I am, sitting in my confortable room in this amazing hotel in Madrid, writing the new INSPIRATION TUESDAY for you guys! :)
I worked on a new mini album this week, for you my dear readers :)
The theme is quite urban, with pictures I took in Chicago last year.
I wanted to focus on numbers, words, things that we see everyday when we walk around in the streets and it ended up being some of my favorite photos from my trip to Chicago!
And I couldn't resist using most of the products from one of the Studio Calico addon kits I ordered a couple of months ago.
So this is what you'll need...
- 4x6 photos (color or b&w)
- Hambly overlay
- Making Memories papers
- Hambly rubons and Luxe Designs rubons
- Making Memories tags
- American Crafts ribbons
- 7gypsies stickers
Step #1 : Cut all of your photos in half. No matter if you're cutting most of the design in your picture as you're playing on full photo pages and you're going to add embellishments ON the photos themselves.
And some pictures might look even better cut in half.
Step #2 : Prepare a 3x4" piece of paper for the cover of your mini album and glue it on the back of your first picture.
Step #3 : Glue your pictures back to back and make sure all photos are facing each other.
Then make a hole with a crop-a-dile.
Step #4 : Cut as much 3x4" pieces into the Hambly overlay as possible, use one on the front cover, one on the back cover, and the rest between each page.
Step #5 : Glue ribbon and sticker on the overlay.
Step #6 : Add a rubon.
Step #7 : I like to draw a line with a black pencil all around the edges of my pages.
Step #8 : Staple a paper butterfly onto your cover.
Some photos of the cover...
Step #9 : Decorate each page directly ON THE PHOTO itself, using stickers, rubons, alphas, ribbons and more.
How long did it take to make this mini album? Less than one hour! Since you work directly on the photos themselves, you can work fast and easily on your favorite snapshots!
Think about different themes on this one : portrats of your loved ones, landscapes, architecture, items, your home decor...
Tons of different themes for this kind of mini albums! :)
See you Thursday for a new giveaway & next Tuesday for a new INSPIRATION TUESDAY!
