For 4 days, over on the Imaginisce blog, we are doing an i-rock Intensive blog hop. It's a new hop each day with new chances to win an i-rock Bundle of Goodies each day! Today we are doing a feature called Bling'n the Mini. If you came from the Rhonda's blog or straight from the Imaginisce blog, welcome! If you are one of my lovely followers, then jump on over to the Imaginisce blog and check out what a couple of the other ladies did with their mini album projects, which is what is the feature for today.
I used the new Berrylicious line. It's too adorable and has such a great Spring/Summer feel to it! I also used this little flower chipboard album that I got at Michael's for $1 a couple of years ago. I stocked up on them so I'm sure you'll be seeing more minis from me now!
If you look closely you might see that I used real dirt on the cover by applying crackle accents to the photo corners and then pressing it down in the dirt in our garden.
I used a ton of the die-cuts from this line. They are perfect for minis!
I love the little fruit people on this paper. I blinged their eyes to make them pop a bit on the page.
To make the bee trail below I used an i-rock stencil kit. I love how it turned out and it was sooooo easy!
I used some of the Imaginisce Fashion and Cupcake flowers. I misted a white one with Glimmer Mist in Brick to match it to the hearts in the paper. I love how the mesh flowers resemble a honeycomb. To make the hexagon, I cut a circle, then I folded it in half and cut the sides, then I folded it the opposite way and cut the sides. This helped keep it all evenly spaced.
I love these little die cuts in the pics above and below! In the pic below, I added some green bling to the black photo mat and gave the peach some blue blingy eyes - love the little sparkle in her eyes!
I fussy cut these citrus fruits, blinged them out and adhered them as a border for my photo mat.
This was fun - I cut a circle and then hand cut the scallops for the photo mat. Thankfully it's not perfect because that's the look I was going for!
Here's the inside back cover. If I keep this album for myself I think I might move the strawberry brad that I made with the i-top and make a brad using a photo.
Supplies: Imaginisce Berrylicious collection: Summer Stripe, Sweet Summer Garden, Cherry Limeade, Berry Patch, Sunshine Seeds, Just Peachy Papers, Die-cuts, Chipboard Stickers; Fashion Flowers, Cupcake Flowers, i-rock and lots of Hot Rocks; i-top medium brads.
So I hope you liked the little tour through my mini. I really had a ton of fun creating it and I see quite a few more of these in my future!!
