Crazy in Love

Beyonce's song, Crazy In Love, is one of our fave songs. I decided to create a mini-album using the song as a title.

This album is the winning entry for Making Memories with Scrapbooking's mini-album contest. The contest rules asked that we create a mini-album using the products provided. The only things I could add were cardstock/chipboard to make the album and binding materials. The prize was a gift certificate to their store.

I was so excited to get that phone call! That only means more shopping for me! :)

How I created the album...

The album is 6 inches in height and 8 inches in width. The individual chipboard pages measure 4x6, 5x6, 6x6, 7x6 and 8x6. I added two acrylic pages, as well, which measured 6x6.

The chipboard pieces were painted brown along the edges. I wanted the chipboard to match the patterned paper.

Next, I glued the pink ribbon pieces which were meant to act as page turners for the album. I then adhered the patterned paper provided in the contest kit. The paper was from My Mind's Eye.

I added some stamped flourishes, the additional ribbon, photos and journalling. The journalling is from Michael Buble's song You're Everything. Really sweet lyrics.

And here is the rest of the book...
