Prehistoric Mini-album

I picked up this chipboard album at Michaels for $1.oo at least a year ago.  I scanned one page and brought it into Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) to make a template for the papers.  I used a Tim Holtz ink pad to ink the edges of the chipboard, but couldn’t get into the angles between the petals.  So I finally used one of my journaling markers!  I was able to get all the way into the tiny angles.

I cut and glued on coordinating papers, then used an angled sanding block to distress the edges.  I thought it looked prehistoric, and I found the perfect little cuts to match that theme on the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge.

    very cute … I have seen the chipboard cutouts various places but was not sure what to do with them other than stamping something on them … great idea using SCAL and cutting shapes … also, great tip about the ‘sides’ …

    Your mini albums are so cute… love your ideas. I’m just starting to make them and really appreciate your creativity. I just purchased the elegant edges cartridge and it will be so easy to put these together!
