Of course when this was decided to throw these parties I was in the middle of slowly remodeling a few rooms in my house and we all know how those remodeling jobs can go. lol Then with my family...maybe this is all families no body can just stick to the plan and time line!!!! lol So it's been a few interesting months around here!!! lol I am supper excited for tomorrow and we have managed to keep it a secret this long!! lol

I took a plain photo album and dressed it up! At the top I took my Hobby Blade and cut a slit in the plastic so I could slide in my card stock under the cover.

Tip~ You don't see the slit until you get close to it so I would recommend doing it down the side instead were you can hide it with ribbon.

I cut a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock, round the right side corners only with the 3/16 Corner Small Punch. I cut a piece of Old Olive card stock, round the right side corners only with the 3/16 Corner Small Punch. I then snailed it to the Not Quite Navy card stock. I cut a piece of Botanical Gazette DSP, using the Cutter Kit I roughed up the edges. I applied Early Espresso ink around the edges with a Sponge Dauber and then snailed it to the Old Olive card stock. I placed 3 Basic Pearls in the bottom right hand corner of the DSP and the slid it in under the plastic on the front of the cover. I cut a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock, used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on one side of it. I then applied Sticky Strip to the back and ran it down the left side on the outside.

Tip~ Sticky Strip works really good for adhering to plastic.

To hide the edge of the Not Quite Navy card stock I wrapped 3/8 Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon around the Photo Album securing the ends with Glue Dots. I then made a bow out of Crochet Trim Chantilly 1/2 and a bow out of 3/8 Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon. I wrapped an Antique Brad around the center of the two bows to hold them together. I then attached the bow over the seam of the 3/8 Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon with Glue Dots. To finish it off I added Jewels Basic Pearls to the scallop on the Not Quite Navy card stock.

Ink~Early Espresso
Paper~ Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Botanical Gazette
Acc.~ Scallop Trim Border Punch, 3/16 Corner Small Punch, 3/8 Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon, Crochet Trim 1/2 Chantilly, Antique Brads, Jewels Basic Pearls, Cutter Kit, Hobby Blade, Sponge Daubers, Glue Dots, Sticky Strip
