DCWV Mini Albums - - - YES Please!!

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!

I know most of you out there, including myself, are so happy when Friday rolls around! Know what else you should be excited about?


Yes, and I have a good one for you! Visit DCWV Blog to learn about their new mini albums, they have a style, size and print for each and every one of you.
i am lucky enough to work with the Chic Accordion Album. This adorable little thing is 4.5" x 4.5", and the pages are 4" x 4".

If you follow my work, you might have noticed I tend to work slightly backwards. Even though I am showing you this adorable album front to back, I actually worked on it center to back, to front. The album cover was the final stage. 
So for the cover of this cute album I attached a strip of the hot pink Glitter Stack paper, and a cut out of the Chalk Art Stack. I used some chipboard letters from the Street Lace Chipboard Box and with a sponge added some Steel Grey Folk Art Paint. Once I had everything secured in the placement I liked, I added some Butterfly and Stars Adhesive Mirror embellishments.

This is the first page of the album. On the left I layered up some Glitter Folk Art Paint, Pink Glitter Stack paper, Adhesive Mirrors and a strip from the Adhesive Jewel Sheet.

On the right side, I took an Insta Photo Fun clear pocket and cut it in half. I secured it with hot glue where there binder holes are and added some Buttons on top to cover the holes. I took a Pink page from the Insta Photo Fun paper, folded it in half, and used it as an envelop flap. I added the stamp 'Pik Me' on the flap. This pocket is for holding guitar picks.


On the next accordion page I used a teal Shimmer Stack paper and Chalk Art Stack words with an adorable picture of my niece and her new pink guitar.
On the right side, I used a large piece of the Chalk Art Stack and wrote a quote that my niece loves.

Here are the last pages of this side of the album. Here I used the same teal Shimmer Stack paper, Chalk Art Stack works and details, and then added a Insta Photo Fun journal card under the picture, topped off with a strip from the Adhesive Jewel Sheet.

 ... and we can't forget the Blue Moon Bead charm accents!!

I left the other side of the accordion album blank, so she can add her own details from concerts or performances.
