Mother's Day Mini Album
After you check out the projects created here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the May Arts blog to find out what the talented members of the May Arts Design Team have come up with.
I am so excited to share my project with you today using one of my personal favorite Authentique collections and some very cool ribbons from May Arts.
Since the theme this week is Mother's Day, I decided to make my Mother-in-Law a mini album.
I knew she would love the colors in the Gathering collection.
I started off with a chipboard album from Maya Road and covered it with different patterns.
I was so excited about this "sheer frayed flowers ribbon" I ended up cutting out the flowers and using them as an embellishment throughout the album.
I added buttons, butterflies and other ribbons to give them even more interest.
thanks for stopping by the Authentique blog today!
Wow -- what a beautiful gift -- the papers are so bright and cheery. I love how you enhanced the different pages with different ribbons and lace. I really like the two sentiments you used too. Your mom-in-law is a lucky lady to have such a wonderful daughter-in-law making her a gift from the heart.ReplyDelete
