Hello Crafty Friends : )

I received a Lantern Mini Album Beyond The Page Kit in my DT box from Kaisercraft, and you all know how much I do love to make Mini Albums... I thought I would write up a little Tutorial to explain how I made this project.

Step One - Paint Your Album.



I chose to paint my Album in "Sea Breeze".  I love this colour and thought it would be nice paired with the black and white "Christmas Edition" papers.

Step Two - Add Texture and Decorate

I mixed white paint with Texture Paste to smooth over the top of the Swirl Flourish Template to decorate the front cover of the album.


To fill in the window holes on the front cover I used Snowcapped (Reverse).



I used some die cuts and Glitter Card Stock to create some decoration for the front cover.  I love the word "Believe" die and it always looks nice cut in the Glitter Card stock.  


I also used a silver doily, some Pearl String and Paper Booms to decorate.

Step 3 - Inside Pages

For each of the inside pages I used the same design.  This cuts out a lot of the thinking with a Mini Album.  I used Coal paper (Reverse) strips and I coloured random leaves in with gel pens.


I used the black and silver foil paper from the Paper Pad for another strip and fussy cut some images from Rejoice (Reverse) to decorate.

I added some number stickers to show the year for each of the photos.  I also coloured some wooden embellishments with a silver gel pen and embellished with a little bling.
