American Crafts | 4th of July Decorative Banner



American Crafts | 4th of July Decorative Banner


Welcome to a new post here on my blog :). I'm sharing a 4th of July decorative banner with you today. The main elements are stars, of course. To me, this is the perfect symbol for Independence Day. I cut five pennants and decorated them with all different kinds of stars: star stickers, die-cut and fussy cut stars, and 3d star elements. I mainly used the star die from Vicki Boutin's 'Let's Wander Collection'. Please find a list of all supplies that I used at the end of this post. You will also find a link further down, which takes you to my blog post on the American Crafts Blog. And now onto the photos:

Crate Paper | Rainbow-shaped Mini Album with Sweet Story



Crate Paper | Rainbow-shaped Mini Album with Sweet Story


Today I'm sharing a cute 'mini' minialbum with you. I used the rainbow acetate die-cut from the Sweet Story Ephemera Pack by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. I placed the rainbow acetate onto white cardstock, used a pencil to trace the shape of the rainbow, and cut the mini album pages into cute little rainbows. Next, I cut photos to fit onto the rainbow-shaped album pages. And finally, I added some cute stickers and chipboard stickers to decorate my delicate album.

For the mini album closure, I used a rose-gold ring binder. This makes it easy to flip through the album.










I hope you like my mini album inspiration. Thank you for stopping by today :). Wishing you a wonderful day, yours Sandra.

Crate Paper | Vase-shaped Mini Album


Hello and welcome to a new blog post featuring a vase-shaped mini album. I used the beautiful Sweet Story Collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. I cut patterned paper into vase-shaped forms. For the cover, I created a shaker window with acetate foil, sequins, and a variety of embellishments. And I decorated the inside with photos, chipboard stickers, and stickers. I also used strings of baker's twine to add a finishing touch. For the mini album closure, I used a golden ring binder. Let's have a look at the photos:
