Mini Album - lacy labels
I just finish up a Mini Album to put in my kitchen. I saw this mini album display (7 gypsies) at my local scrapbook store and purchased it right away. I kept thinking how nice it would be to display photos. I hate to say how long it has sat empty - but months have gone by. I really hate that! Don't get me wrong, I am glad that I purchased the stand. Just wish it wouldn't have taken me SO long to finish a project for it. Oh well, guess that is life - busy.
This mini album is made out of cardboard (cereal boxes) and then Kraft paper adhered to the cardboard. I used a simple scalloped square for the base of my album, and a hand punch for the holes. If you would like to have this scalloped square SVG, CLICK HERE.
For the titles, I used vellum and the CRI-Kits Embossing Tool. The embossed designs are all from the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge.
I had a couple questions on how to adhere vellum to cardstock. I use a spray adhesive - any brand will work. I spray the vellum and then place the vellum on a piece of scrap paper and run my hands over it a couple times (this will smooth out any messy globs of spray you may have) - then carefully peel it off and place onto the cardstock that you want. Not a fool proof method, as I have torn velum trying to peel it off the first piece of paper!
The papers are from the Basic Grey line called 'Capella.' I purchased a small 6x6 pad and made this mini album and 3 cards (see previous post) - and I still have a number of pages yet!
