Love Story Album

Hello!  Hope you had a great weekend!  Cannot believe it is Monday....again!  Seems like there are more Mondays than any other day :)

Today I wanted to share a project I had on the Helmar blog this weekend.  It is a mini album.  I thought this would be a great idea to write down all the stories that I have heard growing up about my parents, grandparents and great grandparents.  Then, the stories could be passed on to my kids and their kids...

The album is called "Love Story":
 I used Helmar Acid Free glue to adhere the patterned paper to the album, after I painted the edges with some butter creme acrylic paint.
I used Helmar Zapdots to pop up the title stickers and the chipboard panel on the cover.  I LOVE the dimension I can get from the Zapdots.   I used the black circles for this project because they are large enough to hold the weight of the chipboard.

The patterned paper and stickers on this album are by Authentique - Uncommon Collection.

Other supplies:
Chipboard album
Butter creme Acrylic paint
Rub on - Et Cetera (Bo Bunny)
Heart Die- The Cat's Pajamas
Patterned paper/ Letter stickers/ word stickers- Uncommon Collection - Authentique
Key charm
Ink- Tea dye distress ink (Ranger); Memento Tuxedo black
Stamp- It's Ok (Technique Tuesday)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
