GD Laura Rumble Part 3!!

Hello!  For today’s guest designer post I promised you a mini album… and here it is!IMG_1012

 I had a wonderful lunch at a chocolate cafe and thought it would make a lovely mini album, so I collected a few bits and pieces from the cafe.  I picked up the chocolate menu, and kept some cellophane wrapping and tissue paper used to wrap up my purchases, and the companies ribbon that was used to tie the package.  I also kept the paper bag and the label from Mum’s tea bag.

The plan was to build a little kit around the collected ephemera, so I searched my paper and washi stash for matching colours.  Serendipitously the ribbon in SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy shop were the perfect colours.

I added cork shapes and wood veneers to my mini kit, and enough sequins for them to feature on every page.  The sequins were my constant through the whole album helping to pull it all together and give a cohesive feel.

My page size was dictated by the menu – it consisted of 4 squares in a concertina.  I cut them in to separate squares and planned the entire album around them.  I added in a few plain cardstock pages so I didn’t have to cover up all of the information with my photos.

Some pages I kept plain so you can read all the details on the menu, some I layered up with dimensional adhesive.  It gives a chunky finish to the album and feels really satisfying to flick through and handle.

With the cellophane and tissue paper a made some pockets.  Simply stitching around the edges trapping sequins and vellum stars inside.

Do you see the little heart on the right hand page?  That is part of the shop logo printed on the paper bag!  Nothing went to waste.

I added some doilies, also available in the SpiegelMom Scraps store.  I love the way the modern neon yellow peeps through the vintage-feel doilies.
