Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

Friday is my mom and dad's 55th anniversary! This is the anniversary card I sent them. I used Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage scraps from my altered wedding photo albums. Thanks for looking!

Pink Paislee Photo Album

I made this altered photo album (picked up at the thrift store) for my son and daughter-in-law. I wanted them to have something pretty to put their wedding pictures in. For this this project, I used Bayberry Cottage papers, flip notes, pleated ribbon, and a black chipboard embellishment. The green chipboard frame from is from Tattered Angels. I stamped it with a Tim Holtz script stamp, then sprayed it with Olive Vine and Pearl Glimmer Mist. The pearl brad is from Kaisercraft. The key to success on these albums is a good adhesive. I used Modge Podge for the large areas of paper, but I used super sticky double-sided tape on all the edges of the papers to really make them hold.
Thanks for looking! Have a great week!

Bayberry Cottage Altered Photo Album

Pink Paislee is my absolute favorite scrapbooking company! I love their beautiful, rich papers and lovely, unique embellishments! I decided to use the PP Bayberry Cottage line to altar a little photo album I picked up at the Goodwill. I ripped the old cover off the album and cut the PP paper a little bigger than the measurements of my album (approx. 12"x7.5"). I used Modge Podge to adhere the paper to the album, then put double-sided adhesive tape on the paper edges and turned them to the inside of the album. I used coordinating PP paper to cover the insides of the album. I used all Bayberry Cottage embellishments to decorate the cover of the album with the exception of the white pearl trim. That is from JoAnn Fabrics. This was a quick and easy project that I gave as a gift to my daughter-in-law's mother.
