Hey everyone! This is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) and here is a new mini album and process video using the very beautiful Simple Vintage Indigo Garden collection.
I cut lots of circles for this album. I used metal dies and cut several in varying sizes. I used the 6x8 Paper Pad and the Simple Vintage Indigo Garden 12x12 Basics Kit too. I cut several circles in the biggest size and paired these with a slightly smaller circle in a different pattern. I machine stitched the two together to make a pocket. These form the bases of each page.
I cut more circles from a smaller size which would become the inserts to go inside the pockets. I cut two for each pocket. I cut my photos into smaller circles and added these to the inserts. I added little ribbon tabs to each circle insert so they could easily be pulled out of the pockets.
I used the Chipboard Clusters for my front cover and for my back cover. These were the three large clusters. I stuck two back-to-back to form the back cover. I backed the other one with patterned paper and used this as my front cover. I also added Floral Bits, Foam Stickers and Chipboard Stickers to the front cover with my title ‘bubbles’ from the black Color Vibe Alphabet Stickers pack.
I made two of my pages into shaker pockets by cutting circles in acetate to overlay onto the circle pages. I then stitched the layers together trapping pretty sequins inside.
I used a one Chipboard Frame to make a feature frame out of one of my favourite photos.
For the photos that I couldn’t cut into circle shapes, I made little fold-out booklets that also sit inside the circle pockets.
I decorated my pages, inserts and photos with Foam Stickers, Layered Stickers, stickers from the Sticker Book, Cardstock Stickers, Banner Stickers, Decorative Brads, Chipboard Stickers, Bits & Pieces, Floral Bits. Somehow, I forgot to use the Enamel Dots which would have been perfect, d’oh!
I punched a hole in the top of each page and put all the pages onto a yellow book ring to bind it all together. It has turned out pretty chunky, but I absolutely love it. I have prepared a process video and flip through of this album. Here is the link if you would like to watch along:
Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
