Hello and welcome to Precocious Paper! If you just arrived from Latrice Murphy's blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by, we'd love to have you join in the fun by starting the Gold and Cork blog hop with DCWV here.
We are going on a little family day trip soon and I wanted to create a place for all of my photos, receipts, postcards, etc. from our adventure. DCWV's kraft Insta Photo Fun Album was the perfect base. Using the Gilded and Cork stacks, as well as Insta photo pockets and bags, tags and envelopes from my stash, I put together this travel album:
It isn't complete because our memories are yet to be made, but I did put together a little kit for finishing it up. I made a set of "stickers" out of the DCWV papers. To make them self-adhesive, I used Tombow's pastel adhesive dots. I love that they are mounted on the backing individually - perfect for this use!
I used Tombow's Extreme Adhesive to adhere the patterned papers to the front of my album. I also used the Extreme Adhesive to glue patterned papers together, creating more pages for my book. I think that stuff may be my new favorite tape runner! Tombow's Foam Tape is in my stash, ready to adhere my photos. I want each snapshot from our special day to lift off the page :).
Besides DCWV's Gilded Stack, I also used a map patterned paper from one of the specialty packs available at JoAnn stores. The polka dots come from a DCWV greeting card. The number tags are from Ikea - I love their new party and stationery stuff!
I'll be sure to share the album when it is all finished. Give me a couple of weeks, though ;).
Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to comment on all the blogs along the hop to be eligible to win the Tombow and DCWV prizes (entries accepted through March 31st, winner announced April 1st). If you haven't had a chance to play with these products yet, you are missing out! Enjoy the rest of the hop, as well as your weekend!
