Hoping For A Happy Easter

Time for some HAPPY EASTER inspiration with
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER'S 
Hope Collection
   I've also used a cool wavy template by Kiwi Lane to create the banner across the front of the album
I found this four page chipboard album at Michael's craft store in the $1 bin...you can't beat that!
  After tracing the shape onto the desired Hope paper and trimming out, I used a jar lid to make a circle mat for the center of each page.
Layer on cardstock stickers with various dimensions of foam dots...I like to create different 'levels' and using different thicknesses helps to achieve that nice layered look.
  To the album ring, I added a large velvet bow from May Art's ribbon.
Below I've added close-up photos of each individual page.  Grab-up fun embellishments like buttons, twine, paper flowers and pearls and let Authentique's paper and stickers do the rest!





Another thing that I like to do with my mini albums (especially chipboard ones) is to glue an edging of baker's twine to hide any uneven spots of the paper, as well as the unfinished chipboard.
