I’ve been wanting to make one of those acrylic photo albums for a while now, but SU doesn’t sell them and the ones I’ve seen are at least $14.99 each. So I was talking to a friend, (thanks Elisa) and she said that she’s made them using our Paper Holders that are found on page 195 in the catalog. I found these photos in an envelope in my craft room when I was purging. I was going to make my Uncle a little album from the photos of my niece’s high school graduation and our time together, last year. I know, I do have the best intentions, just don’t always follow through with them.
Back to the album. I must say it was a little tricky doing each page so the adhesive doesn’t show on the next page. But I think it turned out pretty cute!
I used the Maine Blueberry DSP, On Board Lower Case Alphabet left over from convention, the Hidden Garden bulk rub-ons, Bigz, Top Note die & Circles, Scallop #2 die, Birds & Blooms Scallop Circles die, and my Bind-it-All.
I embossed the letters with clear embossing powder and added ribbon to several of them, and also on the binding.
I can’t seem to get my photos to appear in the right order. And I can’t get the last 2 photos to load onto my blog. If anyone has any tips for me, I would love to hear from you. It’s times like this that I think I will NEVER get this computer stuff……….
