Basic Grey - Herbs and Honey - Friends Mini Album


Where would we be without our friends? Do you have someone special you would like to create a mini album for?

Basic Grey - Herbs and Honey range has a really versatile range of embellishments included in the Element Stickers, Title Stickers, Die Cuts and Transparencies and the 12x12 sheet named Artichoke.

My project for today is a mini Album celebrating 'Friends'.

Gather all your supplies - I sorted through the Stickers and Die cuts etc and selected all the 'friend' related embellishments.

The papers I selected were:  Peas, Asparagus, Onion and Corn.

Cut the papers and covers to your required size, then cover the covers with co-ordinating paper.  I designed and embellished my front cover next, using some of the embellishments and Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz Die - Garden Greens.  The wording is cut using Tim Holtz Alterations - Wanted Alphabet and then covered with glossy accents. I added Distress Stickles - Mustard Seed to the leaves.

Next, place your pages in order and bind using your Zutter.  The next step is to decorate/embellish your pages.   I have kept the pages really simple with the idea in mind of adding a photograph to every page.  When I adhered the larger rectangular shaped embellishments - I adhered them by only three sides - to be able to place corners of photographs underneath if required. I rounded the top corners of the pages using my WRMK Corner Chomper and then highlighted this by 'stitching' with a black marker - just a bit of added detail.

Lastly, add any ribbons, rhinestones and any other final touches you would like, and

Friends, you and me - we make the 'pearfect pear'.
