Oh....looks like my time at My Acrylic Album is coming to an end (weep, weep)! December is the last month of my DT term and I've been hard at work on my last assignments. I still have another one to share, but I'm posting these 2 now. MAA has a bunch of new acrylic albums debuting Dec. 1st, so keep your eyes peeled!
OK, on to the goodies! This little cupcake looks almost good enough to eat! I cut cotton balls in half and adhered them to the cover to get the "frosted" look, then sprinkled with Pink Paislee's coconut pixee stix, red and silver glitter. I then lightly sprayed with adhesive so the cotton balls would hold form. I need this album to really stand up because it going on the road with My Acrylic Album, permanently. Yep, it's going to be on display at all of the conventions and showcases that MAA travels to, so I have to kiss this little cutie goodbye. MM donated product for this album; I received Rouge paperie and let me tell you, it couldn't be more perfect!
The photos are of the 2 little girls in my life, my goddaughter and my niece...love those girls! I used lots of bling to highlight my little sweetie pies!
I gave the cupcakes a "cherry on the top" look by layering flowers and buttons and adhering them to the tops...I also added stickles to all of the buttons.
This is one chunky album! LOL!
Now if you thought that album was bling'd out, then hold on to your hats! I used Basic Grey's Wassail line (from scrap-diner) on this album which was just perfect for achieving a "vintagey" look...I think this is my favorite mini album by far...I wish you could see it, it's gorgeous and I'm not saying that because I made it...I really love it! I can't wait until Christmas so I can fill it with photos.
I sprayed the entire front cover with adhesive and coated it with gold glitter. Can, I just tell you that I made a huge mess with this. Anyone who comes to my house for the next year will probably leave with specks of glitter on their body. I spilled the glitter all over my leather couch...what a mess. it's all over the place!
Anyway, I heat embossed the glitter so it wouldn't come off. The great thing about MAA's albums is that they are a great quality and stand up really well to heat. I then sprayed 3 pieces of lace from savvy n sassy's November Ice Storm kit with gold glimmer mist and layered them on the top of the stocking. I then stitched jingle bells on the lace.
I used lots of rub-ons and glitter alpha stickers throughout the album then hand cut the borders for the stockings.
The little plastic discs (I've had these for years) were too bright white, so I spritzed them with sandy beach glimmer mist to tone down the brightness. I also added stardust stickles to the alpha stickers...told you, I bling'd this sucker out!
I did the same thing on this page, too. I traced the chipboard piece from the back cover to create the journaling tag here.
I used one of the cut out portions from the borders as a mask for the back cover. I placed the cutout portion in the center and then sprayed the edge of the album with adhesive, removed the mask and then coated with gold glitter, heat embossed the glitter and added rub-ons, a piece of chipboard and rhinestones.
