Welcome to the FF blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and I would like to spread some happiness with three cute gift tags I embellished with just the right amount of decoration from the awesome April Embellishment Kit.
I cut three of the April journaling cards to a rectangle shape, cut of the upper corners with a scissors and added a hole at the top for the golden thread.
The colorful stripes of the first tag really make me smile. They remind me of summer, fun and happy days. I added some golden thread and one of the cute chipboad stickers from the April kit.
For the next tag, I used the journaling card that has all those fun frames on it. I added three of the wonderful cork stars and the chipboard sticker saying ‘enjoy this’. This gift tag is great for decorating any gift.
And here comes the final gift tag I would like to show you today. Like the other two, this one is also really effortless to make – just cut the journaling card and add a puffy star and a chipboard sticker. Done :). I really like the floral border – it’s so beautiful. Don’t you think?
I’m hoping you like my gift tag inspiration. Have fun creating with your FF April Embellishment Kit.
Hey Fawns! rukristin here today sharing a traveler’s notebook mini-album I made for my partner for Valentine’s Day.
Each Valentine’s I make him a small album of my favorite photos of us together over the last year. I keep the journaling simple and to the point with single sentence reasons why I love him.
I modified a Traveler’s Notebook to give myself room for ten pages of photos & journaling, a big centerpiece page, and then a front and back cover. I did this by taking out a few of the center pages and then gluing pages back to back. Which conveniently makes them much stronger as well.
On each page, I stamped a number onto one of the button stickers from the February kit. I added a photo from my Polaroid Zink portable printer. I added a simple sheet of patterned paper on the opposite page (I rotated four patterns throughout the album).
One of my favorite techniques to use in a mini-album, is to create a centerpiece page. There are so many pages and photos and bits of journaling throughout a mini-album, that I hate when I get bogged down with tons of embellishments everywhere. I always feel like my pages are competing with each other when that happens.
For my centerpiece page in this album, I chose the center of the album, and used phrase stickers from the February kit to create a patterned paper like background. I opted for a strong contrast with big bold black foam letters.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my album.
This is a mini-album I put together with The Awesome Ladies Project in mind.
The monthly storytelling theme was ‘Right-Now’ and so I put together an album that reflected how I’m feeling in my life right now.
I used the January Embellishment kit for this album. The album was put together with chipboard covers, cardstock, and binder rings. I added some photos throughout. I used journaling cards and stickers from this month’s kit. Again, the bright colors were absolutely perfect against the dreary winter blues I’ve been feeling.
