Avonlea Tutorial Tag Album Part 3

After you create your base pages add photos of your liking! Next week we will augment the album with a few embellishments, journalling and titles. Remember that this album is held together with a magnetic clasp so you don't want to make your pages too thick with added layers. Always, Alayne

Avonlea Mini Album Tutorial: part 2

I am posting these pictures without a lot of explanation, but I will give written directions soon.
The album cover was covered with the back of the Background and texture cardstock with a circle cut out at the magnet placement to assist in the closure of the album.  There is also a mini hint in the right upper corner of the last picture of our new Picture My Life program. I will do a you tube video this week to give you a sneak peak of this fantastic new and easy program!  I can't wait till it goes live February first.

Shimmer trim preview: Teal!

The cloud nine kit includes a wide washi tape with gold polka dots (Z1920) to make the 10 cards, and a roll of teal shimmer trim. I used some of the leftover shimmer trim to decorate Judah's birthday banner. I absolutely love this color (Z1918) and will enjoy it while I wait for the new Idea Book to go live on February first. The new purple shimmer trim (Z1919) will go great with our laughing Lola Paper!
