I recently discovered our photos from our Baguio trip in 2006. I just have to scrap them – I was 20lbs lighter then! Anyway, I thought it would be the album to use the Wisteria papers in. So here it is.

Cover: Album – Basic Grey Tabbed Chocolate Chip Album, Wisteria Papers (Cornflower, Jardin, French Topiary), Chipboard – Bazzil Chips, Paint – Making Memories, Alpha Stickers – Making Memories, Bling – BG Bling it on and Prima

Here I painted the cover with green acrylic paint. I punched lots of butterflies and you’ll see more inside the album. The title was cut using the Slice.

A close up on the beaded embellishment. I actually made this butterfly during that Baguio Trip so I thought it would be good to use it in the album.

I typed the journaling on cardstock and highlighted some words by using a different font from the rest of the text and making them bigger.

I typed the journaling again and highlighted some words. This is one of my favorite photos in the set. Ariel took a photo of me while I was beading – the butterfly on the cover was one of the embellishments I made that time.

I cut the flower from some of the scraps, colored a portion of it and added bling on the center.

The journaling on the right side was printed just like in the previous pages. The strips of words on the left were stamped on cardstock. The crown and flourish were done by using a rub-on adhesive and rubbing gold foil on the pattern. I painted the base green just like the cover of the album.

This is definitely my favorite photo in the set. Journaling was handwritten on this page. The flower and flourish chipboards were painted using paint dabbers. Then I stamped on the flower using a glue pad after which I dusted perfect pearls to bring out the stamped image.

This is a very simple page. I simply used stickers for the journaling. I just did a bit of cutting – the flowers were cut from scraps of the same paper and then I layered them on top of the flower patterns.

I printed the journaling again but this time on vellum so that the pattern behind still shows through. Then I just embellished with chipboards. It’s not obvious in the photo but the flower center was dotted with Stickles.

More butterflies and bling on this page. No special techniques here.

This is actually the “negative” from a butterfly chipboard (you’ll see it on the last page) which I adhered on a piece of patterned paper.

The lovely rub-on on the right side of the page is actually BG Bling It On which I absolutely fell in love with. I thought the rub-on and bling combo adds a nice touch to the page.

It adds a bit of sparkle, texture and dimension on the page. It’s also very easy to use.

There’s the butterfly chipboard! Can you see another Bling It On on the page? I scattered the rub-ons and bling across the page.

Here’s the full album again.

All the Basic Grey products featured here are available at My Little Attic.

Thanks for looking!
