I'm spending most of my crafting time on the mini albums I'm making for my girlfriends (see post below). I've gotten into a groove making the albums, and now the real challenge is to make a cover for each album that's unique. So far, I've managed to come up with unique album covers.
Since the latest FCCB challenge is to make a fun project for a friend, I'm entering the album covers I've finished this week. Here they are:
I used the Bargello technique from SplitCoast Stampers to make this cover (here's the post: Bargello)
This tutorial at Operation Write Home inspired me for this cover: Starburst
I cut this balloon using SCAL and an image from Lettering Delight's Balloon Craze. Love it.
I made a mini banner and used baker's twine to string it on the cover. "Memories" was written with my Cri-Kit pens and I cut out the embellishments from DCWV's Citrus paper pack.
This was a simple sailboat, waves and sun I cut out using SCAL.
Since we scrapbook at the beach, I wanted to use flip flops on one of the covers. I put some Stickles on them to "bling" them up a bit.
That's all I've got for now, but I'm not done yet! My girlfriends don't know I've got a blog, so they won't see this ahead of time. I can't wait to give them their albums in October!
Thanks for looking!
