Hello Sunshine love...mini-style.

>> Wednesday, February 17, 2010

hey everyone...Nicole here, sharing my love for a few things.

  • the Hello Sunshine line, which i cannot stop raving about, lol.
  • a quick mini album
  • my 2 favorite people in the world...my husband and daughter.

i started with a few favorite photos of the two of them...3 wallet sized photos. for the cover, i used the Blueberry Pie graph paper (how could i not?!)...spritzed with a bit of red Maya Mist. then i applied a rub-on from the Hello Sunshine 12x12 rub-on sheet, and used my adhesive eraser to distress the rub-on a bit. added a label sticker to house the initials of my two sweeties and plopped 2 buttons in between those.

i left the inside cover unpapered...just rubbed abit of blue paint onto it and then journaled right onto the chipboard. the 2 butterflies would are punched from the Twirl and Savannah papers. on the right side, you see one of the photos...i used a frame stamp on the paper that came with the mini album, and then used my Xacto knife to remove the center. i adhered the photo behind the lined paper, lining it up how i liked, and then added more Hello Sunshine to cover the back, as you'll see in the next photo.

see that Posies paper on the left side in the photo below?? that's actually the back of the photo in the above picture...a fun way to double your space, rught?!

i just drew some lines to journal a few thoughts about the two of them on each patterned paper...this Savannah paper just makes me happy with the bits of yellow on red!

for the back of the book, i repeated the graph paper and added another rub-on from that 12x12 sheet...again using my adhesive eraser to rough it up a bit.

decided to paint the border of the stamped image in with some red paint and one of my fave paint brushes that has like, 3 hairs on it, lol.

and there you have it!!

quick projects like these are fun to make...i got to play around with supplies, document a few thoughts running around in my head and when you're finished it feels great to see it all done!

i added a few more details on my own blog as far as the how-to process...so feel free to check it out (the link is on the right hand side up there). if you have any questions, please ask away...i'm happy to share any tidbits with my fellow Lily Bee lovers!!
enjoy your week...hope it's full of SUNSHINE!!
