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:
