Hello, Friends! I'm back again today to share another Petaloo Pets project with you. Yesterday I shared a shabby chic folio for your favorite pooch, but today it's all about CATS! Once again, I've paired gorgeous Petaloo flowers with images and papers from Authentique's "Devoted" collection.
I found this 7" x 6" book board binder album in the Closet of Shame while straightening up my stash. I altered the cover by adding patterned papers and a canvas spine for extra texture. The end result is this sweet little album that is just loaded with shabby chic touches.
Every shabby chic project needs to be adorned with beautiful flowers. I had such a good time dressing this album up with Petaloo mini wild roses, Forget-me-nots, and burlap blossoms. I'll provide product links at the end of this post.
One really fun feature is this framed image inside a cluster of buttons. The frame is actually a large button! I just punched out a vintage image to fit the button interior, glued the image in place and then filled the button with Glossy Accents to create a unique vintage embellishment for the album.
The album came with a ring binder mechanism. I created different sized/shaped pages to create a staggered effect.
The pretty shabby chic frame was altered with paints and seed beads. I added a glass bead to the burlap butterfly body to make it pop in the layout.
I added this canvas spine with Scor-Tape to add texture and to amp up the shabby chic vibe.
Here's a peek inside the album. Pockets were added to each cover for even more photo storage. The staggered pages give the album a playful, whimsical feel. Because I find it hard to get a real sense of the flow of an album with still photos, I created a YouTube video tour for you. In it, I share lots of tips and tricks for using scraps, creating custom embellishments and getting the most out of your papers. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for joining me today!
