Authentique Paper + Leaky Shed

This was my first experience working with Leaky Shed Studio products
...what a delight... I cannot wait to try out more of their fabulous goods! 
For my assignment today I chose the Love Squared Album and paired it up with the 
Smitten Collection by Authentique.
Plenty more inspiration is up on the Authentique Paper Blog
blog.authentiquepaper.com
 

  The cover of the album is cut into the LOVE motif shown. I simply traced it onto
two different patterned papers (one for the front and one for the back) and then cut out.
 I used a craft knife to carve out the inner-parts.  For a more finished look, I added a detail
 of baker's twine around the edge of the letters.  To do so, I like to use a fine-point
glue pen and then press the twine into place.

Not wanting to take away from what the album actually spelled out, I decided to focus the
 embellishments around the letter "O".  I backed the opening with a tracing of the shape
 and then added the cupid chipboard cut-out over it.  I glittered the cupids using a
glitter glue and glitter by Martha Stewart. 



The inner pages are a nice, large 9.5" X 9.5" size...lots of room for pictures.
 On the first inside page I didn't want to compete with the front cover, so I made
sure to place the sticker where it wouldn't show through the lettering.



No need to cut!  The 6X6 paper pad bundle pages make the perfect mats! 
I added a little zig-zag stitching around the edge...keeps things in place, plus adds a nice detail :)




I turned the pretty scroll pieced chipboard pink by using a VersaMagic "Pixie Dust" ink pad!
  After dabbing on the color, I used my heat gun to dry and set the ink.



And on this final page, I left the key as-is...I love the little detail engrained into the piece!
My personal preference for adhering the thick cardstock paper (such as Authentique's)
to the chipboard is to use Sookwang adhesive tape.
The album also comes with three large rings to hold the pages together.  Tie on some pretty
ribbons in knots and bows and you'll have a beautiful keepsake to give or keep!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
