HAPPINESS CAPTURED IN A SWEET HYBRID ALBUM

Géraldine never stops to amaze me with her hybrid creations and just when I think it doens't get any cuter she shows me this mini album! My absolute new fav of hers! Judge for yourselves.


There's a total of 7 double pages in my album which means 14 sides to play with.

For this I cut 8 [yes 8] 6 by 12 inch rectangular pieces of white cardstock, folded each of them in 2 equal parts. The 8th one is my album cover.

In my album each double page has one side that is covered with patterned paper that I printed and the other half is the white cardstock. The one common theme in my album is doilies. I used those on every page to bring them all together.

Other things that I used to embellish my pages are; scraps of paper and elements from different Pink Reptile Designs kits that I printed and cut, thin black wire, stamps and colored brads by Kesi'art, Bella Bvld.

I did the decorating of my pages before I glued the pages together so they formed the album. The back of the right side of the first page to the back of the left side from the second page and so on. Finally I glued the cover to the back of the left side of the first page en the back of the right side of the last page. Added some patterned paper and embellishments.

To add some extra colour and pizzaz I punched a hole in my cover and added a thread with pearl, buttons, a small clothing pin and some crochet flowers.

 And this is the final result:

OCTOBER BLOG CHALLENGE

We are a day late with our regular blog challenge this month, but that is only because we wanted to keep all the Designiversary fun and games on the same day, to make it easier to remember. We hope you are playing along with us!

Before we get into the details of the new challenge, it is time to find out who won September's Art Inspiration challenge.  Loved seeing how everyone was inspired by the collage. Check all entries  along with the team pages out here in the September challenge album.


Mr. Random spun the wheel and the pointer landed on:


Congratulations on winning the 10 dollar coupon Lorry!!! You have a PM on your TLP account.
All other participants also received their 25% discount coupons via their Lilypad gallery accounts. Please make sure you check your messages everyone!

Here's Lorry's super cute page:




Welcome to the October Blog Challenge! For this month's challenge we are keeping with the party theme. Your page simply needs to be about a celebration of some kind. You can scrap a page about a traditional party such as a birthday, or show us a celebration of some kind ... a family reunion, an anniversary, a Halloween party you threw or attended, maybe even a celebration where you treated yourself because you worked hard to accomplish something. Anything is fair game. Show us how you party!

BONUS: If you use one of the B&W conversion techniques shared in this Tutorial (link to Tutorial blog post) on a photo on your page, you get an extra entry into the draw for this month's challenge. Please tell us which technique you used in the comments along with the link to your page!

To help get you into that party spirit, I created a Party Mini Kit for you as a gift.Just click on the preview to download.

grab part 1 here
and part 2 here

I hope you enjoy the freebies! Here are some fun sample pages from the Pink Ladies to get the creative juices flowing!




Anne created this super creative page by using those adorable crochet hearts and flowers in a unique way! She also used a B&W image with her fave Totally Rad actions for a quick B&W conversion!

Ellen made this darling page with what might just be the cutest cupcake photo I have ever seen. Love all the color on her page over the white background and the shadows are outstanding!

Emma created this stunning page. Love the way she uses a series of photos to tell her story and the focal photo blended into the background is so great! What an adorable title too!




Make sure you use at least 75% of Pink Reptile Design products on your page. And remember, you get an extra entry if you use one of the B&W conversion tips from the October 14th Tutorial shared here on the blog, (you must tell us which one you used). Once completed, just upload your page to one or all of your galleries and post a link to your layout in the comments section of this post before November 15.
