I'm on the Glitz blog today with my mini album cover. I have some photos of my daughter from Christmas time a few years ago, and I started on a mini album for them.
Here's the cover:
I love that picture of her. :) For the base, I used some Craft-a-Board, painted it white, and added some mist. I did not punch holes in it yet for the O-rings...I haven't decided if I'm going to use two rings or three. ;)
For the papers and embellishments, I wanted to use non-traditional colors. I started with the chalkboard paper from Glitz Design's Uncharted Waters Paper Pack 2 and cropped it to remove the decorations on the paper.
On the chalkboard paper, I stamped the pine branch twice and the sentiment from the Glitz Hello December digital brushes. I also used the same set to stamp the little deer in the corner. These brushes are awesome! Here's a close-up:
The pink zigzag paper is from the Uncharted Waters Paper Pack 1. It's such a pretty pink!
In the upper-left corner of the cover, I recolored the "holiday" sentiment from the Hello December Element Pack 1 from red to pink. I made another pom pom (I'm addicted!) and added a Giant Rhinestone from the Finnley collection. Here's a close-up:
If you have a chance, swing over to the Glitz blog to see the other fab projects.
Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
