Mummy's the Word this Halloween

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the
 next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using
 Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique
 Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to
 find out what the talented members of their Design Team 
have in store for you today!

Shellye here today with a Friday Greetings to our sensational
blog hop with Petaloo.  I've been a Petaloo fan pretty much
 since it's inception, so I was pretty much ecstatic when it 
was announced that we would be creating with 
Enchanted & Petaloo!

I love a mini. 
 I just get a kick out of starting with a blank album, 
covering it with pretty paper and then embellishing it to the
 hilt with fun stickers, ribbons and embellishments. 
 It makes this girl *happy!*

I started with a scrolled album from KaiserCraft, which I
 covered in different patterned papers from the 
Enchanted Collection.
The front cover, to me, is like designing a card.  
You want the WOW want to invite people
into your album :) So I always spend a little more time
 trying to get the cover just right.  I layered a couple of
 different sizes of ovals (covered in Enchanted) and
 then embellished with the totally  adorable ghost and 
spider from Petaloo's Mummies Dazzlers and
 flowers from FloraDoodles Mixed Blooms-Sienna 
 and Black Beaded Peonies.

Using Authentique's cardstock sticker shapes and sentiments
makes mini album making fun and easy!

Velvet Hydrangeas?  Yes, please!
Black velvet just screams Halloween...and Elvis paintings
(sorry, I couldn't resist!)
I created small photo mats using strips of various
Enchanted papers, which I simply machine stitched into place.

On the final two pages, I added the top of a cupcake
pick and a 3-D brad, along with Enchanted 12x12
Detail Stickers.
I like to 'hide' the edges of thick album pages, so I applied
a thick orange jute around the perimeter.  A gingham bow to
the ring completes the mini album and is ready now for photos!
