At Winter CHA this year Teresa Collins and We R Memory Keepers released a project created in partnership–new Albums Made Easy journaling card sets. This partnership is perfect, and produced some beautiful exciting new designs. Here are a couple of layouts I created using some of Teresa’s new sets.
Most of my Albums Made Easy layouts are monthly reviews, but every now and then I like to do something different–like this “day in the life” page.
I pulled in some papers from the Sheer Metallic collection for die cutting and punching accents. I chose some Enamel Shapes and other similar accents without too much bulk or dimension. I also like to pop some elements up on foam squares for a bit of depth.
I love that Teresa’s sets include some acetate cards that you can use as photo overlays. I used a 3×4 card over my 6×4 photo, placing it to the side of my daughter’s smiling face.
I used a fun technique to create the DIY journaling card below.
First I trimmed a 6×4 piece of white textured cardstock and rounded the corners with my 1/8 and 3/8 inch Corner Chomper. Then I embossed it with the new Stripe 6×6 embossing folder and my Evolution. Next I gently rubbed my watermark ink pad over the embossed design, and used a soft bristle paint brush to apply some gold metallic pigment powder. The powder clings to the watermark ink, and the excess wipes away using a paper towel.
