THERESA - mini album

Vacation Mini Club Q Re-Do!

Well I Love a good Mini and this one was so much fun to put together. First I used Club Q Kit CQ49 (Aug Altered Project) and added some of the new Chery Truffle Vintage Alphabet Quotes along with Adhesive Backed Glitter Die Cuts and some of my favorite QQ Chalk Inks Bloody Mary, Amaretto, Mocha Mama. Basically the additional Club Q Kit with my twist on it, hope it inspires you to check outClub Q!

Additional Embellishments: Cardstock: DCWV, Bling: Hobby Lobby, Silk Flowers and extra ribbon and lace: from stash at home =)

DONNA - Pirates layout

This double layout was from our Disney Cruise, my son loved meeting the characters and on Pirate night, they were all dressed up as Pirates. When I saw this kit for July I knew it would be perfect for a Pirtates themed layout.


Techniques

The first thing I did was cut the letters and the journaling card from the Vintage Alphabet Quotes Sheets (don't forget to save the quotes to use later!)

Then I took the two canvas boards inked with the Maraschino cherry ink around the outside, and Midnight Confessions ink in the inside.

For the Pirate hat on the tag I used a piece of leftover ribbon from the kit and inked the edges. Some of the edges started to fray so I put some of the Beacon 3 in 1 glue on my finger and ran it along the edges of the chipboard. The grungeboard skull I painted cream color and when it was dry blotted it with the Midnight Confession ink.

Beautiful mini album. I have not made a mini album yet but I sure love the looks of them. Thank you for the great inspiration. I just may try to make one yet.

I could see Theresa's mini album sitting on my mantel. It is adorable I have a difficult time with involved layouts and projects. This album is giving me many options to use on a current project I am working on right now. Thanks
