Vintage Artistry Moonlit Garden - Big Picture Album Kit

Hi there, Audrey here to share a finished Vintage Artistry Moonlit Garden - Big Picture Album Kit.
You get everything you need to complete the 8x8" mini album. The kit is jammed packed with laser cut elements, patterned paper and even a roll of washi tape. It includes the album cover, full colour printed instructions. Follow along or be inspired to do you own thing. I followed the instructions so you can see how it looks.
To begin I constructed the spine hinge piece and glued that in place in the album cover. This way it had time to dry.
Once I'd separated out all the beautiful laser cut pieces, I collated what I needed and put them in groups by page numbers. Included was the patterned paper cut to size for each page. You choose which pattern you use where.
This Album will be a gift so I haven't used photos. I glued all of the frames to white paper (not included in the kit) for photos to be placed in at a later date.
I was very careful not to glue any laser cuts or words where photos will sit. This way the photo can slide behind.

I've put together a video, putting the album together, constructing a couple of pages and a run through of the completed album. Make sure you take a look on the 49 and Market YouTube Channel HERE

Sunburst Album - Presentation Box

Hi there, Audrey here. 
Firstly, if you celebrate Christmas, I'd like to wish you and you family a very safe and Happy Christmas. This is my last post for 2023.
For this post I've covered the outside of the box that the Vintage Artistry Sunburst - Big Picture Album Kit comes in. You may have seen in a previous post I constructed the album. The box comes already lined with an awesome design and I thought if I covered the outside, it not only made a gift box, but a great way to keep the finished album safe and protected. Once finished  the album fits snuggly inside. 
I chose this piece, 'Sun Kissed Memories' from the Vintage Artistry Sunburst - Ephemera Bits as it certainly sums up what the finished album is all about.
The Vintage Artistry Sunburst - Washi Tape Set was a quick way to add colour and effect to the box.

I've put together a video of how I covered the box if you need any tips, make sure you take a look on the 49 and Market YouTube Channel HERE

Until Next Time

Happy Christmas

A Little Bit of Spice - Album

Hi Audrey here once again with another album. This one made using the 49 and Market’s Create an Album - Wide Chunky Album Cover - Black and the Wide Book Pages.

I made two of the cluster from the ARToptions - Spice Cluster pack. One I used on the front cover and another on one of the inside pages.
The Spice 8x6 paper was perfect for each page, leaving a black frame showing around all the glorious colour in the range.

The ARToptions Spice Coloured Foundation Pack was ideal to cut mats for future photos, beautiful, bright plain colours to match. I decorated each page as if it was its own little layout. If Laser cuts or words overlapped the mats I made sure there was no glue on them so that photos can easily be slipped behind at a later date.
Once I was happy with each of the pages and the album was jammed packed full of Spice goodies, I finished off by adding faux stitches throughout, using the Stitching Essentials 01 - Rub On Transfers. The little cross stitches are so cute. 

You can see a run through of the completed album on the 49 and Market YouTube Channel HERE
