Hello to you this day,
This is the first blog from Favorite Favors here on "My Favor8 (favorite) Blog." I have decided to enter a contest that Mary from CardzTV is having. The challenge is to create a card, layout or craft project that is all about spring. So after lots of consideration, I decided to look through my many stacks of paper for inspiration. I found it with my "Garden Party" pack from Making Memories.
With paper now in hand, I needed to decide what type of project will be made. I saw a tutorial on Youtube from Laura @ Following The Paper Trail, on her Matchbook Mini Albums and I fell in love. This was the answer to my prayers. A Matchbook Album became the order of the day. So, here is my Spring version of Laura's Album for Mary at CardzTV. My project is entitled "Hello Spring".
I used pastel purple cardstock and the Making Memories Garden Party set including their chipboard letters and dimensional glitter stickers. I also used adhesive rhinestones from Marcella by K&Company and some adhesive butterfly rhinestones I found at the dollar store to embellish the cover.
The inside cards are a mix and match of papers from the Garden Party pack. Since the patterned paper was printed single sided, I cut 24 sheets and glued two of them together to create the double side. I carried the butterflies to the inside of the album with the green, blue, pink, and purple butterfly ribbon I got from Walmart. The other ribbons, the solid and the circles I purchased from a dollar store as well. I LOVE dollar store finds!
I even added a butterfly to the spine on the album.
And here is the back...
I really had a great time making this album. I am so grateful for the challenge and the idea. Thanks Mary and Laura!!
Feel free to leave comments and critiques but only if they are good. ;D No, I'm just kidding. Criticism can be good. It challenges us and helps us to grow and become better. And I am all for becoming a better crafter, wife, entrepreneur, person!
