A friend asked me to create a wedding scrapbook/ album for an associate of hers. How exciting to get a project like this!! Let’s talk about the paper dress, shown in the first two photos below. It’s a combo of paper and fabric with some added bling. I got the idea from Gabrielle Pollacco, you can find her on YouTube under Vintage Dress Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial. The idea to use fabric came from Crafting for Almost Anyone, also on YouTube.
The fabric is a blue-green satiny blend and the skirt is sheer with gold glittery flourishes, both found in the wedding/ fashion section at JoAnn Fabrics. Both were originally $9.99 a yard, but on sale 40% off. (yay!!)
These papers are from 2 different collections, since the album will include both the wedding and the honeymoon. They are the Forever and Always Stack and the Linen Closet Stack, both by DCWV.
I will be using a binding method shown on Mini Album Tutorial Start to Finish! by Corenescreations. This video on YouTube is amazing! If you want to do a mini from start to finish, this is the tutorial to watch. I was impressed that she was able to articulate how to do the hinge so easily. Now I get it! Also, how to wrap your covers with paper and why you want to use a smooth paper, not textured. I have not had good results when wrapping with textured paper at all and there is a reason for it.
I have my album not quite half way done, but had to tell about this video. I have not gotten to the hinge yet, but soon will. I know how many pages and the height of each of them, so I can make it at any time.
I sure hope you have found this post and the video to be helpful, as I have, much thanks to Corene! I will post more as I get more of the album done. Enjoy that video!
