Memory Album...

Hello everyone, its Sandie here from Australia. I'm very excited to be here doing my first blog post for Cheery Lynn Designs, as part of their Design Team.  I opted to create a "Memory Album" using a variety of Cheery Lynn Designs dies, which certainly complimented the beautiful Australian designed papers by Megs Garden.

This was certainly an enjoyable project to complete – using a assortment of dies, and various paper mediums, including chipboard, to bring the album to life!
Album front cover includes  Exotic ButterflySmall &  Fanciful Flourish.

On each page presented there are various hidden journaling areas, pockets, photo areas, and so much more. Sadly, I cannot photograph all, as this post would be too graphic intensive.







The 2nd page includes: (New Release)  PolynesianSails Oval (insert) &  Exotic butterfly mini.




Throughout the album I have used a mixture of different mediums on each of the Cheery Lynn Design die cuts – Glimmer Mist, Stickles, Distress Inks, and Lumiere Paints.   





4th page: French Pasty Doily.


To create the flowers, I cut several of Judy’s Blooms and curled each petal before layering together for a realistic appearance.





I hope everyone has a brilliant and creative week...
Sandie
