Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

mini album

So, you might have thought that I was holding out on you, but no, I wasn’t. 🙂 Just busy is the answer. 😉

Here is the Milk Chocolate Eclectic album from BasicGrey with the Cloud 9 Finley’s Estate Collection. Every page in this album is milk chocolate colored chipboard in a different shape. I didn’t paint or ink the edges, they are au naturale or have paper on them. Take a look into the Tim Holtz weekend we had at the store at the end of May – lots of fun!

Another great product from Tinkering Ink! Their Peekaboo Butterfly shaped album which combines chipboard covers with inner acrylic pages. The album is rather petite, 5″ x 3″, and is very cute for remembering small occasions or themes. I used it to document some of my recent favorite pictures, following Ali Edwards’ idea in a recent CK, “see”. I heat embossed the covers for some texture and color. The inner pages have Heidi Swapp masks that are alcohol inked so that when the mask is removed, the pattern is clear. The alcohol inks offer color and transparency in one layer, love it!

I just love new products and especially ones that are so fun! Enter Peek-a-boo albums by Tinkering Ink. They are 7 page albums consisting of 4 chipboard pages with windows and 3 solid acrylic pages. Way cool and currently available in 2 sizes: 6 1/2″ x 4″ and 6 1/2″ square.

For my projects in the ScrapFriends review, I mixed the 2 album types up so that I had 2 album with some pages of each size. It makes for an interesting read for sure! On the Flowers and Quotes book, I made a shaker box out of the window in the last page. There is also one on the front page of the Beach book. These albums are perfect for that feature!
