Mini Album~Treasured Moments

Hi! Could I have a little survey here? What could you do in more than 4 hours? and how much could you earn in 4 hours??

I want to do this project long time ago after I came through so many wonderful and inspired creations on the magazine. So, today I moved!! I spent more than 4 hours on this project and the final result is so awesome, my two cutties and my DH just amazed with the creations:-)) Isn't this fun ??

Well, here is the front cover for the album. I used K& Company Patterned Paper to make the background, then stamped with Hero arts Swirl Clear Stamp.Again, with Hero Arts Travel Clear Stamp, I stamped the "remember this".After that I punched out the photo and added other embelishments like stickers, ribbons, flowers.I wrote "SAM ,YILEEN, vacation album" with black gel pen."&" is a sticker from K&Company too.

Here is the second and third pages. For the second pages, I used K&Company Patterned paper to make the background and I punched some holes and painted with red distress ink to make it more elegant beforehand.After that I mat the photo, tied the ribbon and added the prima flowers with brads.

For the third pages, I painted the background with mustard distress ink first then I mat with Stamp-It patterned paper.I mat the photo and stamp the left bottom corner with Hero Arts Travel Clear Stamp.Lastly I added prima artful collage flower.

For the fourth and fifth pages, I used K &Company Patterned Paper as background, mat the photo at the center.Then I stamped the Hero Arts Travel Clear Stamp-On the Road at the two sides.Cut two strips of K&Company patterned paper then stamped with Hero Arts Travel Clear stamp, write on some details, added a strip of pink lace,lastly, prima flowers as embelished the pages.


For the sixth pages, I used brown cardstock to make the background and cut with edges scissors.Then mate the photo and glued the sticker, the sticker is fun !! Then, added the word FUN with sticker from K&Company.For the seventh pages, I used blue cardstock as base, then stamped Hero Arts Travel Clear Stamp-Travel, on K&Company Patterned Paper as a tag.Layered the tag with the photo.Stamped Let's Go from Hero Arts Travel Clear Stamp on the cardstock, then punch three holes at the bottom and right side of the cardstock. Glued "starfish" from paper embelishment. Added some ribbons too.


The last page, I just used a Vacation facts sticker to make the conclusion, it's FUN !!!

P/s: I have written all the places that they traveled on each pages, just for later references.


Phew, this is a long blogging!! Hope that you understand and like what I shared here!! I hope that we can learn something new everyday and inspired by crafter's creations!!!

This is my first mini album and I hope I can make more, and you know, my DH just told me he wish that I can make one our wedding mini album!!! :-)) Hehe...he is my sweetie!!
