Hello RRR peeps! Are you all snuggled up this Sunday morning? Grab your coffee or fave beverage and bear with me....I have lots of photos. I know Halloween hasn't quite hit yet but I already have a Christmas scrapbook album to share. I can't help myself!
I started with a 7 Gypsies photo album and painted it all up with my favorite white chalk paint and went to town distressing my edges. I love how chalk paint distresses so easy! I cut all my papers out figuring in my mind what paper I wanted on each page..adding a bit of Raspberry Road Designs gingham paper to enhance each page. From there it was allllll about my embellies. Lots of chipboard, borders, stickers etc to pizzazz it up. I added a bit of hand stamping to the tabs. Hand stamping adds that warm homespun look. It really adds a sense of handmade to me.
I also used an aging process on the mini jello mold, jingle bell (which I first painted with chalk paint), my stamped tag, and the ol' cow bell on the front cover. From here I took my ring clips and assembled everything and started adding my yummy RRR ribbons. The more the better. I used wired Faux burlap ribbon, linen candy cane print (which I aged), 2 1/2 inch cotton blend ribbon, and cherry twine. This took quite a bit of time but I love the outcome! Hope you do too.
