Love You More Thickers / Mini Album Tutorial

Thickers are most definitely one of my must haves when I am crafting and I love that they aren't just for scrapbooking. Thickers are a great elements for mini albums and all sorts of DIY projects.

My youngest daughter and I love to have battles over who loves the other person more.  I thought it'd be fun to make a little mini album about our sweet little debate.

I gathered my favorite Thickers from the new Serendipity collection.  These are perfect because they have some really colorful ones and some light grey ones.  I also cut 2 4x10" strips of white cardstock for my mini album base.

Next, I wrote out the words for my title, "I LOVE YOU MORE" with the colorful Thickers. I filled in around it with the light grey Thickers.

I removed the colorful Thickers so I could apply gesso over the light grey ones and the cover, which you'll see in the photo below.

Once Gesso was applied and given time to dry, I added the colorful Thickers back to the cover.

I added pattern papers to the base pages, a little watercolor, photos and embellishments.

I showed this to my daughter and after getting a huge smile from her, the Who Loves Who More debate started all over again.  She even said she's going to make a mini album with more pages than I included in mine. LOL

Oh and did anyone catch my little play on the word "MORE"?
