Secret Garden Mini Album

Wow.  I did not realize it had been so long since I posted something!  It has been, and always is, chaotic around here.  Just wanted to do a quick post about the Secret Garden Mini Album class.  The class is FULL!  yeah!  Class is Monday at 10:30 ladies!  I'm bringing goodies....

I fell in love with the Graphic 45 paper collection the moment I saw it.  It is just so lovely.  Every single sheet of goodness has amazing beauty.  If you have not held a sheet of this in your lovely little hands and drooled a bit over  how pretty it is, then you are seriously missing out!  It might be as good as chocolate.  Well, ok.  A close second!  But really.  It's pretty.  This is the cover of the mini album (measures a good 7 x 9 and is perfect to hold 4 x 6 prints).  We will use the whole paper collection in this one.

Ladies, supply list:  Your basics including paper trimmer, scissors, pencil, UHU or favorite liquid glue to "wallpaper" with (brayer if you use one), 1/4" red line or scor tape, pop dots, glue dots, and crop a dile.  You will also need something to "cover" the edges of the chipboard pages with.  I used picket fence distress stain.  You could use acrylic paint, paint dabbers, white sharpies, inka gold, or other colors of distress stain.  Your choice.  There are some options at the store as well.  I also used distress inks in victorian velvet, frayed burlap, and shabby shutters.  Obviously, you can use any colors you desire.  Just letting you know what I used.  Some of these colors are at the shop.  The optional for this class is the Banner set and the Chipboard #1 set - both are available for purchase at Scrapp n' Savvy.

I am looking forward to a fun morning with you all.  See you Monday.  Oh, full pictures will go up in the Tutorial section on Monday morning.
