FabScraps Shabby Gate album
Fabscraps "Shabbylicious" papers
Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder
X-Press It Double sided tape
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue
The very first thing I did was pulled out the back of the album and covered it with glue, using the X-Press It Clear Gel Glue. The quickest way, i’ve found, to do this is spreading it with a palette knife.
Next I placed the glue side down onto some pattern paper.
Using an emery board I removed the excess paper from the sides.
I repeated this process for two of the page inserts and using my finger I then added some paint around the edges.
I also added a coverage of paint to the gates
Before stamping over them with a text stamp and then embossed this with some Silver Moon Sapphire Embossing Powder.
I then added some touches of blue ink
Before adhering the gates to the page inserts.
Next I repeated the stamp/emboss process to a piece of FabScraps chipboard
And a metal butterfly.
And then put the frame together, tying it up with some ribbon.
I used a post card instead of a photo.
Really like the subtle texture the embossing creates.
I also left enough room so you could add either a landscape or a portrait 4x6 photo.
I didn’t fully glue the “Together” down so that a new photo could easily be tucked in behind.
Think this would make a great wedding gift,
Or even for Christmas.
Hope you are feeling inspired to create.
Happy Christmas to you all and I wish you all the very best for the New Year.
