Wow, wow, wow! I think this was one of the most fun projects that I have done all year! A while back Floren from Generations Crafting sent me this wooden Kaiser Craft tree-shaped mini-album as one of my Design Team projects. Since I haven't worked with alot of wood, this was really fun and different to do.
I decided to use my Anna Griffin Holiday Traditions paper to decorate it since they are so bright and cheery. They are the seriously the kind of Christmas papers that I could use over and over again!
The first thing I did was to lightly sand and then paint the edges of the mini. Next I started designing which papers to use where and traced and cut them .. easier than you would think! Then I adhered my papers to the album using a coat of Modge Podge. After they were dry, I started cutting pockets and tabs. Then came the really fun part .. decorating! My product list is here. I have used some misc ribbon and bling from my stash.
This was a little hard to photograph but I hope you can get the general idea. It is so pretty IRL! I think I will give it to one of the daughters for Christmas.
So, here are the pix:
Many thanks to Floren for having me as part of her design team and providing such awesome product to work with. Hope you will visit her store often!
Can't wait to see what you think?!
