"Thrilling" Mini Album

Sometimes great things come in small packages- that's why I love creating mini albums so much!  And just in time to add some pictures from Halloween is this mini album featuring the Thrilling collection of papers!  Take a look at what you can do with this collection.....

The book cover features my favorite paper (okay, one of my favs!) out of the Thrilling collection, Superstition as the background.  Once the paper was adhered to the book board (on both sides), I used Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink to completely edge the book and then embossed it with black embossing powder.  The stickers are from the 12 x 12 Details sticker sheet and were edged with Tuxedo Black and Morocco.


The left side features Antidote in the background, with the right side using the bottom left corner of the Moonlit paper.  Stickers from the 12 x 12 Details sheet were layered on top.


Turn the page for more thrills!  I used one of the papers from the 6 x 6 Bundle for the background on the left page.  The file card is from the Details sheet, with all of the great word stickers from the 8 x 12 Elements sticker sheet.  The right page has the Frenzy paper in the background with more Details stickers.

How SPOOKY can you get once the creative juices are flowing?  Or in this case, maybe something else to drink using the great bottle label stickers on the Details sheet.  The left page has the Moonlit paper for the background while the right page uses the mini pumpkin pattern from Superstition.

Want to get a little bit nostalgic?  Then the Mystic paper (left) is perfect for you!  Lots of great vintage Halloween images to be found on this sheet.  Mix that with the fabulous chevron patterned Forewarn paper.


Find the hidden words (okay- they'r highlighted in orange) in the Frenzy paper, a great background from vintage images from the Details sticker sheet.  White polka dots on orange from the Mystic sheet are the perfect contrast to the black and white embellishments from the Details sheet.

Of course Halloween wouldn't be complete without some spider webs from the Antidote paper, with a layer of skull and cross bones from the 6 x 6 Bundle- the perfect way to end this Thrilling mini book!

One thing to mention about this book- I only used ONE sheet of the Detail stickers for the entire book- and still had stickers left over for other projects!  The Authentique sticker sheets are definitely a value so don't hesitate purchasing them, you'll get lots of milage out of one sheet!
