Sugar & Spice Mini Album (Page 3 and 4)

Here's page 3 and 4 of the Sugar & Spice mini album which I've created using Clear Scraps acrylic flower tab album.

Steps to create page3.
1) Cover the scallops or tab with pattern paper and ink it's edges with distress ink.

2) Cut out a small scallop circle from a pattern paper and ink it's edges with distress ink. Paste it on the lower right of the page.

3) Use some paint markers and doodle some small squares and circles on it's left border.

4) Distress the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and add a photo corner to it's upper right corner. Paste it in the middle on the page.

5) Add a strip of lace at the bottom of the photograph and dress it up with some buttons on it's right.

6) Mat a quote with a white card stock and ink it's edges with distress ink. Paste it to the lower left of the page. Use a black pen to doodle on some faux stitches.

Steps to create page 4.

1) Cover the tabs or scallops with pattern paper and ink it's edges with distress ink.

2) Cut out a scallop strip from a pattern paper and ink it's edges with distress ink. Paste it at the bottom of the page.

3) Distress the photograph using the scissors distressing technique and add two photo corners on it's upper right and left. Paste it in the middle of the page.

4) Add a strip of rick rack on the bottom of the photograph.

5) Paint a chipboard heart with some pink acrylic paint and use the "Apply Magic Mesh to your Embellishment" technique to dress it up. add a paper ribbon and a button to add some colour to it. Paste it to the lower left of the page.

6) Mat the quote onto a white card stock and cut it out using a deco scissors. Ink it's edges with distress ink and paste it to the page.

7) Use some paint marker to doodle the dots and arrow.

I've been cutting and pasting all the steps into word documents. I've formatted them so they are easy to read. I would be glad to zip them and e-mail to anyone who would like a copy when you are done with all the pages. Making very sure everyone knows all the credit belongs to you!
