Enjoy the Little Things

First Friday Glitter Queen Blog Hop
Welcome to First Fridays Glitter Queens Blog Hop

Hi!  I hope you are enjoying the awesome projects along our First Fridays Blog hop.  If this happens to be your first stop along the way our theme this month is Designer Series Paper.  

  Today I am sharing an easy, mini album  showcasing all of the papers available in the Delightful Daisy (144137) Designer Series Paper (DSP). Click HERE to see inside pages.

Clare Charvill from My Creative Spirit was my inspiration for this project. The overall album dimensions are 8" x 5 1/4" x  1/2".  I used Basic Black (12x12) card stock for the base album, Tranquil Tide card stock, ink and ribbon, Layering Love stamp set, Clear  Faceted Gems and my favorite piece of the DSP to decorate the album cover.  I used the rest of the DSP for the inside of the album along with Calypso Coral, Daffodil  Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock. Click HERE for detail directions.

I wanted to keep the album simple, but you could easily customize the pages by adding Stampin' UP! embellishments, larger photo mats and die cuts to your crafty heart's content.

For my second project, I made a matching card to complement the album. The card is 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" layered with DSP 4 1/8" by 5 3/8".  I used Wink of Stella to fill in the little heart and finished the card with 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

I love to design the inside of my cards.  I added a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Whisper White mat and stamped the sweet message from the Layering Love (141965) stamp set.  This message really hits home with me.

The tags in the album are 2" wide and punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper. The message is inked with Tranquil Tide (144085)

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you've had as much fun hopping as I had making the projects. Make sure you visit everyone's blog.  We have an awesome group that loves to share their talent with you.

Do something creative today!

  7. Thanks for also sharing the individual pages! They show how small photos can be incorporated into the album. This would be a fun project with baby paper and birthday paper!

    1. Joy baby paper would be so cute! I almost used the Birthday Memories paper. I thought the animal parade design would make an awesome cover. However the image was too big for the size album I was making.
