Mini May-Nia with Kate!

Happy Thursday Quick Quotes Fans!  Kate here today sharing my Beginnings 6"x8" Wire Bound Book with you.

In my previous video, I shared the Beginnings Wire Bound Book in its entirety. Today I am showcasing completed pages from the Beginnings Wire Bound Book and a video tutorial on how I altered some of the pages in this fantastic album from Quick Quotes.


The cover of this album was simply altered by adding Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Blue Hawaiian and Baja Blue. These colors created a wonderful sky effect! A few pearls were added to middle of the resist flowers that on the cover 


All the pages in the Beginnings Wire Bound Book are 6"x8". I altered my album to have different size pages and created a couple of pockets for journaling tags.  You can see how I did this in my video:



To decorate the album I used several instagram photos of my daughter, Lily, and the May Club Q Page Layout Kit.  This kit came with lots of great papers and embellishments.  Plenty to do this whole album!  The edges of each page are inked with Blue Hawaiian Powder Puff Chalking Ink.

 





This album is fun and spirited just my Lily!  It really is a reflection of who she is at this moment. I love how easy the Beginnings Wire Bound Album and the May Club Q Page Layout Kit made this project come together! 

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Powder Puff Chalking Ink - Baja Blue, Blue Hawaiian, Coal Miner 

Other Supplies:
American Crafts Thickers
Fab Scraps Black Pearls
Helmar Premium Craft Glue & ZapDots & 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. 

Thanks so much for stopping over today!
