Here’s a mini album I made as a birthday gift for my dear hubby. I started this when Lee, Pia, Cookie, Nina and Christine came over to our place. I wasn’t able to finish because Ariel came back early from his visit to my parents’ place. So I continued working on it and finally finished it January 26th. Fortunately, Ariel was in Iloilo so I was able to finish the album secretly.

I am finally able to use my BG Skate Shoppe line. I’ve had this for more than a year!!!

Other than the BG papers and die cut tags, here are the other materials I used:

Paper bag from SM
Album – Scrapworks
Ribbon, Eyelets – We R Memory Keepers (also had this for quite some time)

Alpha Chipboards – Imagination Project Gin X Coasters (painted, sanded)
Paint, Brads – Making Memories

Cardstock – Bazzil

Pigment Ink – Brilliance, Versa Magic

Rub-ons – American Crafts, Making Memories, Daisy D’s

Stamp – Gel-atins, Hero Arts, Autumn Leaves

Dimensional glue – Diamond Glaze
Stickers – AdornIt, DCWV

Fibers –
Vellum – DCWV
Pen – Staedler Triplus, Zig Photo
