Altered Albums

I just love my job! I got to spend some time yesterday with my sweet friend, Lana, who I meet because of Stampin’ Up!. She is an AMAZING scrapbooker and we meet through the scrap meetup about a year ago. Lana came over so we could decorate her new SU! 12x12 album. She works so fast that she has FILLED 2 albums, with over 50 pages each, in about 2 months!!!! She usually buys her albums form Michaels but is now completely in LOVE with the 12x12 linen albums we carry. Check out what we did with her albums:

DSC_0295 I love that we can run the vinyl through the big shot and get any image we want! That’s how we labeled this album both front and side.

Chocolate Decor Elements Sheets # 114337 (pg 158 IB&C)

Serif Essentials Alphabet - Die #113464 (pg199)         

Naturally Serif Decorative Strip - Die #113453 (pg 196)


And LOOK at these SWEET FEET!!!

This album is all about, you guessed it, their family vacation with their 2 year old son. We just flipped at how stinkin’ cute this looked with feet stamped in Close to Cocoa Craft ink. Just like footprints in the sand.


This next album is just elegant. This is one of our Stencils…..SHUT UP! Yes, I said stencils. I grew up with them everywhere and I have to be honest when I tell you it has taken me over 6 months to buy one.  I have seen the coolest things with them and I am NOW in LOVE!


Kind Thoughts Brocade Large # 116573 – Just use a sponge and craft ink…super EASY.


DSC_0340The final album is a 6x6 many of you have seen but I thought it was worth reminding you how AWESOME our Rub-Ons look, too. Yesterday, I added 3 ornaments stamped in white craft ink and embossed with winter white powder. 

After all that you should be jumping up and down so I want to hear what you think! Leave me a comment, PLEASE.

These albums are beautiful. I haven't bought one yet since joining SU about 8 months ago. Now I can't wait to get one and try this!
Thanks for sharing.

Mandy - these are amazing! I've been wanting to do something with my album covers & I keep "reading" about using different things, but I really like SEEING what you used & how it turned out. Thank you!
