A Bridlal Shower Gift ~~ CTMH Acrylic Album for a special young lady

The picture ABOVE shows the front of the album with a chipboard heart, chipboard tags dangling on ribbon and the "tearing technique"
The picture above shows the journaling tag that slips behind the picture mat.
The picture below shows the same journaling tag in place behind the picture mat.
Green & purple sassy strands were used as a tag pull.
This picture is to show the smaller 1/2 page that can be used for journaling and/or pictures. I used purple sassy strands at the left edge of the journaling/picture mat:
The "Key To My Heart" promotion is one of my favorite campaigns. I adore the stamps that came in that special bundle!! I just LOVE the look of the florish and all of the stamping images. The tags that are tucked into the right page gives the "soon to be bride" a place for some journaling or even a few more pictures:
This is the last 2 pages of the album. Sassy strands were used againg to dangle some small enhancing CTMH embellishments. I used a thin edge of prisma glitter as an outline around the heart attached to the ribbon:
This is the back of the album:

I haven't been blogging in WAY TO LONG.....and I apologize to all of my followers. It's been a super busy past few months; not anything in particular just that life got in the way of my blogging, stamping, scrapping & card making.
Needless to say......I sure have miss all of you blog-buddies!!!!

Anyway...........Here's an acrylic album that I created for a bridal shower gift. All supplies used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH). I used B&T paper from numerous different Level 2 paper packs since my focus was on using her wedding colors of purple and green.
Close To My Heart has such terrific supplies.....I absolutely LOVE the quality of all of the papers by CTMH. I use the "tearing technique" often because the white core of our paper gives any creation a "special touch." Click HERE to see all of the paper packs/scrapbook kits available from Close To My Heart.
~ The CTMH colors that I used are: Garden Green ~ Smoky Plum ~ White Daisy
~ White CTMH LOVE LETTERS rub-ons were also used throughout the acrylic album.
~ CTMH items used are: acrylic album, big pinks flowers, prisma glitter, English Ivy ribbon rounds(discountinued), sassy strands, Key To My Heart stamps, CTMH ink pads, & misc brads/embellishments.
~ Bonding Memories 2-way glue is the glue used to glue the papers to the acrylic album and for the prisma glitter on the edges of the hearts & to hold the glitter to the Big Pinks blossoms. I love, love, LOVE that glue!!!!

Your thoughts and comments are greatly let me know how you like my creation. Oh......and sorry the pictures are laid out in odd angles....I promise that I'll do better posting next time.
It's time to get some ink on my fingers.....I better get busy!!!!
Thanks for stopping in.....and please stop in again soon.
