G's bday mini album

Something I only managed to finish on the morning of his birthday itself at 7am.. gave him with the mod podge still wet and quickly snatched it back after he has seen it to let it dry. Hahaha.. =P

This was meant to "showcase" the different sides of G - the things that he most loves.

This is my first attempt at doing mini album. Whew!

album: Victorian Key mini album from KaiserCrafts

Cover page:

family pp from 7G, plain cardstock with I stamped words on, rounded the edges and outlined in silver; transparency which I printed myself; alphas K&Co filigree chipboard (coloured over it in black pen to make the filigree more subtle and outlined in silver); MM tiny alphas in black; ghost arrow from Heidi Swapp with silver edging and BG Wholly Cow rubons; Hambly's transparency vintage frames; Maya Road microchips heart.

2nd and 3rd pages: Hubby

2nd page: cloth paper (man+woman) from Love,Elsie; sticker with quote - not sure where it is from, actually a random sticker that I cut out the words from; Cloud 9 Cinnamon Chalet 3d flower

3rd page: same cloth paper, 7G Family rubons for the words "together forever", filigree chipboard alphas same as the coverpage, Maya Road Microchips hearts, Maya Road house chipboard coloured in pink and sprayed with glimmer mist (I really like the effect on this one!) then used 7g family rubons for the "heart", MM tiny alphas for the "home", and the rest is doodling; Basic Grey Sultry chipboards for the swirl and "I heart you".

4th and 5th pages: Daddy

4th page: Family pp same as 1st page, with the definition of "father" cut out from elsewhere on the same paper and layered over the words on that part (which actually said mother hahahahahaha); alphas from Doodlebug - not sure what the actual name of the font is; joyful tab from Sei "Say it with Fabrics" - a super old range I picked up at Popular; Adore and Delight metal stickers on this and the next page from Kimberly Poloson; quote marks from Scenic Route black chipboard.

5th page: Same Family pp, cut to show the word lovely (luv-li); label writer tape for the line; 7G gaffer tape for the right bottom corner; Maya Road microchip heart with pink stickles; Prima Say it in Crystals frame, and the back end of stickers from 7G 97% complete photography tabs which was used on the 6th page

6th and 7th pages: Photographer

6th page: graph paper from hambly's screenprints (a RAK from mly2906), stickers and tabs from 7G 97% complete Photography; I also cut out my hubby's profile and popped it up from the rest of the picture to make it more outstanding.

7th page: The same graph paper; Pink Paislee press-ons on the PP; alphas from American Crafts Thickers Platform in black, also outlined in silver as well as MM tiny alphas; stickers from 7G 97% complete Photography and stamped words "people, places, things". I didn;t manage to stamp the words exactly where I wanted them as it was a rubber stamp. Sigh. The stamps from Heidi Swapp.

8th and 9th pages: Drama King

8th page: black and white polka dot PP was "stolen" from my friend's DCWV stack 6 (teehee); AC Thickers in Giftbox (green), flowers, swirls and the base of the word "drama" are from Basic Grey Sultry chipboards;
9th page: same polka dot PP, 3 green dots from BG Sultry again, to give a sense of continuity with the previous page; black crystals from KaiserCraft; live out loud stamp from Autumn Leaves Stampology Sandy Krieger Spring; "pure poser" words from 7G Photography as well.

10th page: Back cover
Love, Elsie cloth PP; love rubon from 7G Family rubons, MM tiny alphas, Limited Edition rubons from KaiserCraft; For You rubon from Autumn Leaves Rhona Farrer Greetings.
