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!
