Good morning, everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and that you enjoy our little get-together with Bella Blvd this week! I have a mini album using the brand new Basically Bare Easy Easel album and the Thankful collection from Bella Blvd (which is adorable, as you are going to see!).
Instead of a normal cover, the Easy Easel album has two corrugated pages that make an easel for easy display of your album. What a great idea, right?
The album includes 4×6 and 5×5 inch chipboard pages (there is also a larger version of the album, which I can’t wait to get started on). I alternated the small and larger pages and used Bella and Basically Bare goodies to make a Thanksgiving centerpiece.
The first page has two little houses (made using the doors from the Basically Bare Happy Little Houses set) attached with dimensional adhesive to pop them up. The little pin flag is also by Bella Blvd, and is too stinking cute.
I used some poly fill stuffing to add some fluffy clouds along with the ones on the cardstock.
The next page has a Happy Little (fall) Tree. I covered the chipboard tree trunk with strips of Bella paper, and autumn-ized the canvas leaves with green, orange, and brown ink.
This next page has a great Bella sticker and another adorable pin flag, along with some burlap and velvet ribbons.
The Thankful collection includes some great stickers, including this “Fall Memories” journaling tag. I layered it over more burlap ribbon and some suede leaves. The acorns were cut from another sheet of the Thankful paper.
This next page uses another journaling tag sticker, along with these “thanks” banner stickers and year label, which are also from the Thankful collection.
The stickers are layered on top of some net ribbon and clear Gauche Alchemy Punchinella for texture on this next page.
Up next is a page with one the great Fanciful Frames shapes, which I painted white and stamped with gold ink. I only glued the frame on three sides so that the paper can be slid out and a photo put in its place.
The last page has three Happy Little Houses and more of the great stickers that came in the Thankful collection pack.
See how that easel back holds up so well? You have to try out both the album and these great papers!
That’s all for today! Be sure to check out the Bella Blvd blog to see the fab projects they have for our swap all week long!
