Celebrate Life Mini Pocket Album

Hi Everyone Kerrie back with another project for Little Birdie Crafts this time I have created a little mini album using their Celebrate Life 6×6 pad 

This mini is so quick to create and you can use it to send gift cards or add some favourite photos from a special event or use it as a little brag book 

to create the base you just need 3  and a half sheets of 6×6 patterned cardstock single sided or 3 sheets if you have double sided paper. Step 1 | score the first one at 3″ and fold in half, cut another sheet in half and adhere to the top outer Step 2 | Cut a strip from the 6×6 patterned cardstock and adhere to inside right side and slot the first page insert to see where you need to score to create a wrap around  Step 3 | repeat as per 2nd insert to create your third and outer page  I have created mine to match up with the amount of pattern I want showing out the side to create the pocket layers Step 4 adhere the pages together making sure to only add adhesive to the top and bottom edges as you want to create pockets 

Using Sculpture Paste and a silicone mold I created some leaves, just leave in the mold to dry and then paint using White Gesso

using French Rose Chalk Pain I painted my Primed Chipboard Round Flourish 

While the chipboard is still wet sprinkle on some Strawberry Lips Shimmer Hodge Podge and set aside to dry

next I fussy cut some pieces from the fussy cut sheets in the pad and then layered all my pieces on the front adding some handmade flowers as one can never create without some gorgeous LBC flowers I then added some more Strawberry Lips Shimmer Hodge Podge this time using Gel Medium to adhere the bling where I wanted

finish off with punched out pieces and some journal cards tucked into the pockets (you can add photos or gift cards or a combination of all into the pockets if you prefer Add some string wrapped around to hold the album closed

Birthday Shaker Card

Hi Everyone, Kerrie here with another project for Little Birdie Crafts
Many years ago I was queen of shaker cards and I am so happy to see that they are once again popular as I do love a shaker card. For my card today, I have used Little Birdie’s Boho Dreams collection as those who follow me know I love this colour combo and this collection.

First up I cut two pieces of patterned paper to use as my base layers, I then applied mixed media paste using stencil to add some texture.

While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled on Silver Stars – Twinkle Melange and set aside to dry.

 I then watercoloured the circle frame and the flowers, once dry I pulled the frame part and created a window by adding some acetate to the back of the watercoloured frame. I also adhered a doily to the base I popped the base onto a paper doily to give another layer to my shaker. 

I then added double layered foam tape around the circle opening to give my shaker mix enough room to shake.

For my shaker mix, I used a combination of Little Birdie blings. 

Next up I rubbed Silver Metallic Wax over the texture paste to add dimension and to take away the whiteness from the paste.

Once I had layered my fussy cut pieces, flowers and sentiment, I then applied some Gel Medium randomly to my cluster and sprinkled on some Microbeads and Rainbow Sparkle and then finished off with some spatters of watered down gesso. 

A closer look at all the layers and texture.

Mini Sea Album

Hello everyone,

Marta here with you today with a mini album.

I made it based on the ‘Songs of the Sea’ collection. It is small, around 10 * 10 cm. It has several cards inside, in which you can paste souvenir photos from the sea. I decorated it with cut-out elements from sheets and added some white splashing. I also added chipboard subtitles. On the cover I made a layered composition, on which I also added some granular paste and white gesso.

I Used:

Kiss, Marta
