Ubud Dreams Mini Album

Today I am pleased to be bringing you this Mini-album made using the newly released, yet ever so popular, Ubud Dreams Kaisercraft collection.

imageTo begin with I made the cover by taking two evenly sized pieces of card (any size you would like to make would be ideal but I chose 5″ X 7″ for mine)  and a smaller piece and then covering them with plain paper.

imageI then inked the plain paper with Lagoon Kaiser Ink.

I next covered the front with the reverse of the Mandala paper from the collection and Sekar paper on the back.  I then added die cuts from the collectables pack. I also coloured one of the mandalas in from the pack using  Kaisercraft gel glitter pens to give it a jewel like finish and added a strip of Natural lace to the front securing it beneath the patterned paper on the back of the front cover.

imageI then made two pockets to fit on the inside of the front cover and constructed double sided pages adherred to the rear of the cover leaving pockets for photo tags.

imageI embellished these using appropriate sayings from the sticker sheet. I am planning on using this album to record my before and after photos of my new home that I should be moving in to next month so some of the sayings were very appropriate..especially as this is my 17th move! ‘Life is not meant to be lived in one place’ after all said and done! Lol

The following images show some of the the highlights of the pages.


imageI also made double sided tags from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad for the pockets using lots of die cuts, from the collectables pack, cut in half and layering them back to back for tabs to pull the tags out and I decorated each one with lengths of stickers from the useful sticker sheet.


imageOn several pages I used the Mini-Mix Designer Stencils to decorate the pages and yet more stickers and collectables

image imageFinally, on the front cover, I used Ranger Texture Paste through the same stencil to add texture adding a pearl in the centre of some of the flowers together with some further stencilling using the Tim Holtz Mesh stencil.

Finally I added some Iceberg mini blooms beneath the die cut window and added some die cut leaves from my own supplies along with a few more stickers both inside and on the back cover.

image….now all I have to do is create the ‘after’ photos to add to the album along with my ‘before’ photos I already have.
