Happy Harvest Mini Album

The Fall harvest season is upon us and I’m sharing an adorable 
 mini book that I plan on using to highlight some of our favorite autumn memories! 
I've incorporated the "Story of Fall" Collection from
ECHO PARK PAPER
and the house die and enhancement dies from Top Dog Dies.


  Using prompts from the various stickers and die-cuts (such as pumpkin patch, falling
 leaves, etc.) I’ll be encouraged to take certain photos throughout the fall months.


 For the front cover, I die-cut the sweet fox and pumpkins from papers found in the
 6X6 Paper Pad.  I used a little pink chalk to blush up his cheeks and a burnt orange ink 
to add some shading to the pumpkins.  After assembling all of the pieces, I added 
them to the front with foam adhesive. 




Between a few of the pages, I also added 3X4 journal cards so I’ll have 
some extra room for journaling! 
And while preparing my pages, I precut mats for each page to measure 3”X4.5”.  
To some of them, I adhered a strip of various washi tapes for extra color and pattern.  
The mats were machine-stitched into place before gluing onto the chipboard base.



 Mix and match ephemera pieces with chipboard and stickers!  Adding enamel dots or
 small brads is like icing on the cake, so an embellishment never goes without one!



Sometimes adding a brad is an after-thought, such as to the center of the chipboard
 flower to the left.  I used a pair of steel snips to remove the prongs from the brads
 and then attached the brad to the center of the flower with a dimensional glue dot.




Happy Harvest Mini Book by Shellye McDaniel with the "The Story of Fall" collection by #EchoParkPaper.
Enamel dots give the appearance of nail heads along the side of a label sticker or
chipboard sentiment…it’s the perfect touch!  And don’t forget to layer on smaller
stickers to your larger chipboard or die-cut accents.  The blue ticket heart added
just the right amount of POP to the hedgehog’s backside!
Thanks for letting me share my little mini with you today!

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
