Boy Oh Boy!

  I have a handsome mini album to share that I've made using
Authentique Paper's
Suave Collection and a chipboard album by Leaky Shed Studios!
blog.authentiquepaper.com

The cover of the chipboard album comes with a die-cut overlay of numerals.
 To distress this, I used some Black Velvet Color Shine Spray and painted it on
 with a paintbrush. 

I love using the collection's 6X6 Paper Bundles for things such as die-cuts, photo mats, etc.
 For the cover, I added layers of die-cuts, punch-outs and stickers, along with some
 textured embellishments like cork arrows, ribbon and a button.



I like that the album size is 7"W X 6"H...this allows room at the side for the binding,
without taking away from the design area of the pages! 



Corrugated paper is also a nice accent for boys' pages!  
And on the bottom photo you can see how I added some dimension to the hinge
 stickers with some hand-stitching and a brad.



Plain chipboard, kraft and wooden veneers also go well with the Suave Collection.
Grunge the pieces up with ink if you'd like!



 In finishing the album, I glued on a lime green jute around the edge of the chipboard pages..
yet another great element for a boy's themed project!

♥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.
