Alicia McNamara Mini Album Rose Avenue

Rose Avenue Mini Album with Process Video

October 16, 2017

Do you ever have a few memorable photos that you think deserve a special Album? Do you ever create or decorate Mini Albums? Mini Albums are perfect for showcasing little collections of photographs.  Today I am sharing how to make a Small Polaroid Mini Album for four photos using Kaisercraft’s Rose Avenue Collection.  I filmed the process for making this Album so you can see exactly how it came together.

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue Mini Album By Alicia McNamara

Being a Mum of two precious boys I don’t have a lot of pink girly photographs in my personal collection or a lot of pink girly things in my home.  Even though I am a girly-girl at heart, most of my photos have blue-t-shirts, caps, balls and boys toys in them.  Luckily I do have friends that have little girls and I do happen to have some friends that are very talented at hosting amazing birthday parties.

When one of my friend’s said her little girl’s first birthday party was going to be a ballerina theme I did get a little bit excited.  Especially as this particular friend is an amazing cook as well and I certainly wasn’t disappointed! The party was gorgeous and the food just blew me away.  My friend hand-made everything (including the cake) and I took lots of photographs on the day of all the lovely pink, ballerina food.  All of this meant that I had a collection of yummy pink party food photographs and I thought they deserved a special place in a Mini Album.

Rose Avenue Collection

The Rose Avenue Collection is perfect for scrapping those girly-girl photos.  It is filled with Shabby Chic gorgeousness – roses, butterflies and lots of pretty pastel colours.  For this Mini Album I chose to use Kaisercraft’s Small Polaroid Album.  It is just the right design for whipping up a quick Mini Album to showcase four special photographs.  I used one 12×12 Paper for this project and one page from the Paper Pad.

How I made the Album

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue Mini Album By Alicia McNamara

To begin with I inked the chipboard album in Pink ink.  Then I used paint and texture paste to paint over the top of the pink ink through this template to create a textured pattern on the chipboard album.I’m a big fan of swirls and flourishes…there is something that I love about them…and this new Template from Kaisercraft SWIRL FLOURISH is just divine.

I adhered my photographs onto 12×12 Paper WOOD PANELS and then it was just a simple matter of gluing the photo and the frame together.

Once the pages of the Album were assembled I was up to the decorating part.  I used a variety of Mini Paper Blooms, Fussy-cut Roses, Wooden Flourishes, Flourish Die Cuts and Cheese Cloth scraps to decorate each page.  Here is the Process Video that shows exactly how I made the Album:

This Mini Album will be the perfect gift for my friend….I hope she likes it : )

Design Team Layouts Rose Avenue

Shabby Chic Layouts Featuring Rose Avenue

October 11, 2017

When you hear the words Shabby Chic Layout what immediately springs to mind? Distressed layers, lace, floral patterns, and pastels?

Shabby Chic…according to Wikipedia is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style decor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from the genuine period decor.

Today the Design Team were asked to create a Shabby Chic Layout featuring the beautiful Rose Avenue Collection.  Let’s see their interpretations….
