I wanted to share a cute mini album that I created for a co-worker, who presented it to her grand daughter for her confirmation. this was my first attempt using Mod Podge (MP) and I am happy with the results, as was the proud Grandma, and the sweet little girl who made her confirmation.
Most of these supplies were purchased from Scrap-a-Doodle Doo, and I assembled this sweet little album at the last Scrap-a-Doodle Doo Weekend event! The paper was given to my by my good friend and scrappin' buddy and it worked perfectly! ( THANKS JANICE!)
Well - here is the front of the purse. It is a hard chipboard album made by Fabscraps and was purchased from Scrap-a-Doodle Doo ( I have to apologize for the poor photos - I was in a rush to give it to the Grandma!)
|The flowers were from my flower collection from past "DOO" purchases. The white peal beads and the feather were from one of Scrap-a-Doodle Doo's Mixed Media Kits - if you have never checked them out - please "DOO" they are full of GREAT stuff to add to your projects ( AND THEY ARE ON SALE!) I punched a hole in the bottom right corner of the front flap and hung a beautiful resin cross by Melissa Frances from some fuzzy fiber.|
|Here is the back. I left it very plain and let the paper's message be the focus here.|
|Here is a close up of that cute little cross from Melissa Frances.|
|Here is a close up of that flower grouping on the front. I am so please how it turned out!|
|Inside cover and first page|
|Purple foam THICKERS and some pearl swirls.|
|I made a pull out pocket on a few of the pages too.|
|Some buttons and stickers added to the decoration.|
|Last page and back cover - the words are from a Heidi Swap Sticker set, and the adorable little Communion Girl is a custom die cut that you can order from Scrap-a-Doodle Doo. (You can see the charms in this photo too.(|
I mixed lots of patterns / colors / and papers in this mini - but I love the way they all worked together.
Chipboard minis are so much fun, and make great gifts - I hope this inspires you to try one - or to get crafty and make another!
Thanks for stopping by THE DOO BLOG!
