Hi and Welcome to the Gold and Cork Blog Hop with Tombow USA and DCWV! We have 2 days full of gorgeous projects using GOLD and CORK! You should have come here from the Tombow USA Blog , which is also the first stop on this hop!
I created a mini album for my friend Donna that holds photos from our summer trip to Charleston, South Carolina. The main products I used are a DCWV mini kraft album, DCWV kraft Insta Photo Fun pages, DCWV Insta Photo Fun inserts, DCWV Gilded Stack, DCWV embellishments, TOMBOW Xtreme Adhesive, Tombow Dot Runner, and Tombow Mono Multi Glue.
|The main products used in my mini album|
I kept the cover very simple. I included three butterflies from Crate Paper's "Notes n Things".
This is the first page of the album. Of course before we could have a weekend away in Charleston, we had to spend some time in the craft room! I wrote a little note on the inside cover to my friend :)
I'm not going to make you look at EVERY single page, so I'll pick out my favorites. I got really happy with my Janome Sew Mini sewing machine for this project.
I used some of the DCWV photo inserts to create little 'shaker' pages throughout the album. I filled parts of the clear pages with sequins and wood veneers, then sealed the page by sewing it shut.
The Gilded Stack comes with some fun cut apart journal cards. This one say "Thank you very much for the difference you make in my life". They are such a great addition to a cute mini like this!
I sewed on some Dear Lizzy Thickers for my Charleston, SC title page.
I paired some fun puffy stickers from Pink Paislee's "Solstice" collection with the DCWV Insta Photo Fun kraft pages.
Here's another sequin shaker page I made with the 4x4 DCWV insert.
For every photo page, I adhered the photos to the cardstock using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. Chipboard pieces (like the star and circle pieces) are adhered with Tombow Mono Multi Glue.
The chipboard pieces here are from Teresa Collins. They were adhered with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. I backed them on colored square pieces from the DCWV Insta Photo Fun embellishment packs.
In the back of the album I included some brochures and maps from historic places we visited.
