here are a few more pages from the album i've been working on. i really forget how much i like making these little scrapbook pages!
i love mixing colorful washi tape, boarders stickers, alphabet stickers (mix matched colors & fonts!) and using my moonlight gel pens to add little designs to the background. and of course, i must have the pilot permaball to outline and journal and add little bits of texture and dimension to some of the elements on the page.
here is the cover of the album. it is made of 5.75" x 5.75" envelopes from papersource (love LOVE that store!!) i bought a super awesome kit on etsy once that taught me how to make the envelope album and now i'm hooked. love it.
look at all these yummy colors! and since it's made of envelopes, you can also use the pages to tuck in little bits of ephemera, notes, photos, secret journaling, etc. i think these would make awesome journals, too.
i love the faux stitching on the border stickers on these two pages. the stickers are from sassafrass lass. makes me want to experiment with stitching (in the style of amy tangerine!)
some more examples of adding details with the gel pens. i'm loving these banner stickers by sassafrass, too. love adding them to the sides for a unique twist.
and i had to include a photo of my dear 81-year-young grama in my album! i love her smile and her laugh. she is the inspiration for the name of my blog, too. love you, grama! and i printed all the photos from my camera using the pogo printer. fun!
