Bee(youtiful) Mini Album with Erin Quiding-Sampson

Hello it's my turn on the blog and I’m sharing a mini album that I made using several Southern Ridge Trading Company products and papers from Authentique’s Be(you)tiful paper line.

I started off by gluing down a filigree piece and 3 bees to a chipboard tag. I then painted it, 3 more bee’s and a second tag with white Gesso.

While those were drying I cut a piece of 3 by 1 ½ inch of Cardstock from the paper line to use as my hinge and spine.

I scored at ¼ inch on both of the long sides then added a strip of double sided tape to the inside of each tag to create the front and back covers of my mini album.

Next, I cut out 2 pieces of black card stock (3 inches by 4 1/2) to make 2 pages for the inside of my album.

I scored the bottom of each of those at ¼ inch.  I added a strip of double sided tape to the score line of each then placed them onto the inside of the mini album.

I now have 2 double sided pages, along with the front and back covers.
I decorated each page with papers and stickers from the collection pack adding in distress oxide here and there to bring it all together.
I used distress oxides in peeled paint and fossilized amber to colour the filigree pieces and bees on the cover

and lastly added a few bees to the inner pages.
