This is an 8" x 8" album that I thought I would simply decorate as a keepsake for myself. I really don't have a hard back memory book in which I can store some of my smaller arts and crafts projects - just the little things that I don't have anywhere else to store! So this album makes it perfect for all the accessories that I have.
The color scheme for this album consists of pink, aqua, and chocolate. I detailed it with some of my favorite things like butterflies, flowers, an asian inspired fan, some stamping, and lots of crystals to add a little spice and glitter! For the asian fan, I took a very small paper flower and folded it into 4's. I then tucked it underneath the fan and then adhered the crystal on top. Cute!
Here are some more photos at different angles:
When I was all finished with my album, I realized that I really liked the stamped image in the center window. So I decided to make a card out of the same image. I duplicated the tree branch and florals and made this:
Very simple...I love the soft and elegant look of this card. I stamped a 'friends always' sentiment and tied a chocolate ribbon at the top. I also adhered some pink lace to the edges of the left and right hand side of the card. A different touch. So the card was definitely a nice surprise...I never intended to make a card!
