a little OA & a little EP…….

Hi! Thought I’d do a quick post this lovely Saturday afternoon & show a couple albums I’ve finished up :)

First off is a mini-album titled “Love Everyday Happiness” I made using Echo Park‘s dreamy ‘Sweet Day’ Collection… I adore this collkection and couldn’t wait to do an album with it the moment I first saw it:) I love the whimsical & refreshing pastel colors, trendy ‘quilt-like’ patterns, and light & airy quaint elements – it’s like a summery day filled with ice cream and picnics:) The base album is 6×6 and has a total of 10 premade pages - 7 are chipboard with the cover, back, and middle pages being acrylic with descending tabs. So, total, there is 18 decorated front & back pages – which makes for a pretty hefty sized album:) As usual, there’s handmade flowers & embellishments, journaling, and matching decorative frills, as well as machine stitched borders & decorative ribbons framing every photo placement.

My last album uses  October Afternoon’s ‘Cakewalk‘ again with a ‘WORD’ album from Bo Bunny as it’s base :

Super fun & original looking, but used up a lot of sandpaper shaping the edges – so, be warned if you’re looking to make one of these on your own… unless, of course, you have a ‘custom shape die-cutting machine’ – then I’m just jealous:)

    Really enjoyed seeing these. The 1st one is my fav.
    BTW Don’t know if you saw Rick Warren of Saddleback church in CA (author of the purpose driven book) son committed suicide today after battling depression. Pray for them and their church.
