Altered Fabscraps Album

Good morning, it is my turn (Heidi) to share a blog project with you.  I have altered the 'Fabscraps' album as shown above using some American Craft papers, some Kaisercraft and Prima stamps.
You can purchase the Die-Cut Grey Chipboard Album from 'Fabscraps' on a special price of £5.82  on the Ali-Craft website

I have used the following products, some of which are available on the website, via link above.

Kaisercraft 'Friendship' Sentiments
Kaisercraft 'Birdcage' Stamp
Prima 'Bird, Ticket  & Flourish' Stamps
American Crafts 'Yes Please!' - 'Bundle' Card Paper
Tim Holtz 'Distress Ink' - 'Brushed Corduroy' Ink Pad
Tim Holtz 'Distress Ink' - 'Tattered Rose' Ink Pad
Ivory Lace and pearls from stash
Wet Glue & Sticky Foam Pads


(1) Cover album with papers, alternating sides, sticking down with wet glue for manoeuvrability. (Here is a view from inside)

(2) Ink all edges with 'Brushed Corduroy' & 'Tattered Rose' ink pads.
(3) With both ink pads, stamp bird cage, tickets, flourish and birds randomly over the album covers

(4) Stamp sentiments to front and inside of album.

(5) Add lace to rings and secure album with them.

(6) Using scraps of card paper, cut out roses, edge with ink pad and stick down onto album pages.
(7) Add pearls to rose centres.

Now your album is ready to take photos or keepsakes.

Another team member will be sharing another project with you soon and we will be launching our new challenge this Saturday 6th July, so do pop back then.
