This month we are partnering with Joy Clair stamps so I incorporated stamps from the Dream Big and Wild and Free stamp sets.
I covered the front of the album with pattern paper then die cut letters from black cardstock and Silver/Silver Glossy Foiled Paper using my Cricut Expression. I used an older, less sticky mat and set my pressure setting to medium and the letters cut without issue.
Next, I embossed the letters with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I placed the foiled letters onto the black letters. I found using my Xyron Sticker Maker was the best way to add adhesive to the letters. Then I added the letters to the front cover.
My interior pages consist of cardstock, pattern paper and Rinea Foils. A strip of Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper was added along the edge of the right side and Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper was torn and added on top to coordinate with the photo. I used Joy Clair stamps as embellishments.
Did you know that Rinea now has a Ghost Ink? Stamping with Ghost Ink removes the color from the foil creating a reverse stamping effect. I stamped "explore" repeatedly on the Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, then used a baby wipe over the words. As you can see, the gold was removed from the stamped words but not the surrounding foil!
I created a pocket page on the left side to hold extra photos. Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper was placed on the pocket and a photo added on top. Using foil as mats really brings out the colors in the photos. Then I simply placed additional photos in the pocket. On the right side, I added a strip of Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper under the photo. I used another Joy Clair stamp as an embellishment.
To finish I inked around the pages with brown ink, added rings and ribbons.
Now I have a memento of our Bermuda vacation.
Thanks for stopping by.
