Greenhouse Gala Album

Hi everyone!

I thought I would show you what I have been working on for a while. 
This is one of the old 8.5" square chipboard albums.  I've had it on hand for so long, unused, that now they're retired!  Have no fear, though.  There are still lots of mini chipboard books available for you to decorate yourself.  OR...you can be super fancy and make your own using the Big Shot machine!

It is covered in the NEW Greenhouse Gala designer series paper.  (See? At least I am using something new, instead of hoarding it!)  This paper it truly gorgeous and in addition to the lovely pear colours here, it also has blues, yellows, browns, and oranges. 

After adhering the paper, I brushed a Modpodge sealer over it so handling it won't wear the paper down.  It is decorated with rub-ons and a metal tag.

I made a similar album for a girlfriend for her birthday, featuring her new baby - she loved it!  I'm just kicking myself that I didn't take pictures of that one before giving it away. 

So maybe in future posts I will showcase some of the pages for this album.  I'm not planning a theme for it, I just want it to be a collection of some of my favorite pictures and moments (hence the title on the spine!). 

Hope you like:)

  1. Hi!
    I'm following you from Stampin Connection. I love what you did with this album--I admit, I have a few of them laying around, too. I love the Greenhouse Gala paper--so versatile.
