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!
Thank you, Jill. They’re really fun to make. The Elegant Edges cartridge looks like it was made to make mini books!
