Boy Oh Boy!

Hello, Authentique friends!  I have a handsome mini album to share that I've made using the Suave Collection and a chipboard album by Leaky Shed Studios...let's get started!

The cover of the chipboard album comes with a die-cut overlay of numerals.  To distress this, I used some Black Velvet Color Shine Spray and painted it on with a paintbrush. 

I love using the collection's 6X6 Paper Bundles for things such as die-cuts, photo mats, etc.  For the cover, I added layers of die-cuts, punch-outs and stickers, along with some textured embellishments like cork arrows, ribbon and a button.

I like that the album size is 7"W X 6"H...this allows room at the side for the binding, without taking away from the design area of the pages! 

Corrugated paper is also a nice accent for boys' pages!  
And on the bottom photo you can see how I added some dimension to the hinge stickers with some hand-stitching and a brad.

Plain chipboard, kraft and wooden veneers also go well with the Suave Collection.
Grunge the pieces up with ink if you'd like!

 In finishing the album, I glued on a lime green jute around the edge of the chipboard pages...yet another great element for a boy's themed project!
