Album Love

Jennifer Venter

Hello everyone.  Long before becoming a Roadie I fell in love with Maya Road's coaster's and albums. To be honest though I've never done an acrylic album before,  I had a fear of them I guess. So when I saw I had to make one for CHA I was so intimidated!  But I really love this Acrylic Scalloped Layer Book and had fun creating this "All Girl" album for Jaiden, my little girl.

I decided to keep things simple on this and let the photos do all the work. :)

The layout is the same though out the book. I used a scalloped border punch to mirror the edges of the album on the pages and lots of yummy ribbon to create borders too.

I just added a few painted chipboard pieces and a quote to complete the album along with other MR embellishments.

Next I'd like to show you another example of how to use an album.

Not only are MR shaped albums perfect for making cute and whimsical books, but they are also great for creating home decor items. For this project I used two Ladybug Coaster Books, glued all the pages together and used it to help created this bookend. The "L" shaped part of the bookend was made out of two pieces of wood that were glued and nailed together, then covered with patterned paper. Then after covering the ladybug with patterned paper the ladybug and book end were attached using a dowel and wood glue.  Finish embellishing the bookend with chipboard, ribbons, flowers and pins, basically just have fun with it.  Just think of the possibilities using all the different shapes available from Maya Road.  :)
