Welcome to Paradise in August!
We here at craftycity.com are so excited to be collaborating with reneabouquets.com. We will be sharing many awe inspiring creations from both design teams and I cannot wait to see all the amazing projects. I have created a fun and easy mini album that is 7 inches wide and over 8 inches tall. Creating this album with both kits was an opportunity of a lifetime! All the products from both companies were absolutely stunning! Crafty City sent me a kit that contained Mintay Paradise papers, stencils, flowers,charms, Prima ink and much more definitely had all the vibes of the Salt Life. ReneaBouquets sent me the Treasure box #1 kit. This kit was filled with iridescent Unicorn Candy pearls, flat back pearls cotton candy, Handmade butterflies, dragon flies, gorgeous chipboard mermaids, glitter glass and more.
For the cover of my album I used one of my favorite Mintay Paradise papers, the cabanas on the sand with the ocean in the background. I started off by adding the Fab Scraps chipboard that I painted white and then inked it to give it sea colored ombre effect. I also embellished the top of the chipboard with Renea's Diamond glitter glass and also added Renea's Diamond Chunky glitter glass to the waves in the ocean and on top of Renea's Chipboard starfish . One of my favorite items from Renea's kit was the silver pink shard glitter that I used in the sand. If you have visited Florida's beaches you will notice that the sand has a glittery effect that looks like sugar crystals. I also added Renea's gorgeous ocean sun kissed mermaid sitting on top of the wooden fence as well as her one of her "To Venus & back" glass glitter encrusted dragon fly's atop one of the large palm trees. I fussy cut a lot of ephemera and layered it with the foam dots and and added some of the Prima flowers from my kit and also from my stash and surrounded them with some of the Prima Melange Art Pebbles. Pictured below, you will see the spine of my album I added the shabby pink dream crochet lace that I cut in half and layered and then ombre painted the laser cut starfish and added the beautiful diamond and pink pearl rhinestone button.
Embellishing the front cover is always my most favorite part of making an album, but I adored making every part of this album. The inside of the album is loaded with large pocket pages and side pockets that are large enough to fit 4x6, 5x7 and even 8x7 photos. I also added in some smaller Prima tags from my stash that I added ephemera cards from the paper collection and surrounded the images with Prima Washi tape and added some of the charms from the Crafty City Paradise kit.
