'Be Happy' mini album

Hello Sassy friends!

Almost the start of the weekend and what better way
to pass the time than getting busy with some crafty goodness!
Our beautiful March moodboard will be inspiring my posts throughout the month, starting with this mini album/journal I created using loads of Glitz Design 'Hello Friend'
and some other tasty bits that can all be found in the store.
The main idea for this journal came from a pack of Glitz 'Hello Friend' paper layers.
I thought they'd be perfect for a book of some sort.
Because the paper is quite thin, I've mounted them back to back.
Spread 1: I've sewn a simple pocket using Maggie Holmes Flea Market vellum. Tuck a few heartfelt notes inside and secure shut with some mini brads
Spread 2: Glitz 'Unchartered Waters' journalling spot, 'Hello Friend' Paper layers and October Afternoon journal insert, Epiphany crafts epoxy sticker & Prima washi tape
Spread 3: Glitz paper layers, Heidi Swapp clear banner & vellum ephemera, Maggie Holmes Flea Market frame, Epiphany crafts epoxy sticker & Studio Calico wood grain enamel dots which are NEW in store!
The peeling paint frames in the moodboard had me excited to try
a Prima crackle effect stencil. I've used it here with texture paste.
Spread 4: Prima stencil, Amy Tangerine 'Yes Please' vellum pockets, Maggie Holmes 'Flea Market' ephemera, Glitz sticker, Dear Lizzy 'Polka Dot Party' journalling spot, mini peg
On the next spread, I have used a Heidi Swapp template with some Color Shine. I've fussy cut a large gold doily from a sheet of Maggie Holmes gold doily vellum and sewed it onto the page on two sides to create a pocket. Inside, I've tucked in a Crate slide frame.
Spread 5: Heidi Swapp template, Color Shine mists, buzz word and banner. Crate frame and vellum; Dear Lizzy 'Polka Dot Party' Flourishing Flowers paper
Spread 6: Glitz Paper layers, Unchartered Waters die cut (cut on Silhouette Cameo) Dear Lizzy spot, Cosmo Cricket wood veneer
I've tried to incorporate little pops of gold throughout the journal
Spread 7
Give a kraft bag a makeover with some embossing powder
I've popped a sweet Freckled Fawn wood frame onto the little bag
Spread 8: Glitz paper layers, Unchartered Waters whale, Heidi Swapp banner, Maggie Holmes Flea Market ephemera
Spread 9: Glitz paper layers, Hello Friend Peekaboos; Heidi Swapp banner & buzz word; Maggie Holmes Flea Market ephemera; Pink Paislee chipboard alphas
Close up of new Heidi Swapp 'Hello Today' glitter stickers now in store
Gorgeous Pink Paislee 'Color Wash' alphas
Spread 10: Versamark shadow stamping with a couple embossed with clear powder. Heidi Swapp layered sticker and Glitz peekaboo
Finally, I've created a cut file in my Silhouette software and
mounted it with foam tape on top of a section of Hello Friend 'Polka'
Thank you so much for stopping by. We are looking forward to seeing how our moodboard inspires your creations this month.
