Vintage Butterfly Chipboard Album



Step 1
Heather started by applying the Designer Dries clear glue with an old brush to the "Want to Scrap,"  Butterfly Chipboard Album.

Step 2
Heather applied #243 Gingerbread Art Glitter to the piece.  She wanted the piece to have a "Vintage look" so she did not paint the piece first and the glitter applied was transparent, letting the chipboard show through.  
Step 3
Heather used #300 Camel Art Glitter to cover the three center pieces on each side of the Butterfly Chipboard Album   Heather used the Designer glue to adhere the Pink Crochet lace & roses to the glittered surface. 
 Step 4
Next she used the  Designer dries clear glue and an old brush and applied the glue to the chipboard pieces and covered with Gecko Galz Digital Papers.

Step 5
Heather removed the excess paper with a kraft knife.  Any papers that would be overlapping another layer, had the edges inked with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink.  After all pages were covered and trimmed, they were inked as well.
 Step 6
Heather used a Martha Stewart Lace Punch on some of her pages. 

Step 7
Heather up-cycled some tags.  She covered them with glue then adhered the papers and trimmed them in the same manner as her pages.
Step 8
Glitter was applied to tags and ribbons attached.

One more page that is different.  
Heather did some of her pages the same, because she really liked certain papers.
Step 9
Heather used the Gecko Galz Frame ephemera
 with her Photos. She uses a free program called GIMP to resize her photos, and place them in the frames.  She has free videos on Youtube demonstrating GIMP.  Candi fix it foam pads were used to elevate the framed photos 
Step 10
Heather used the Ultra fine Metal Tip and Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue to apply glue to the frames .

Step 11
Heather applied the glue differently to each frame, then applied #160 Rose Gold Art Glitter.  She also added glue to each of the pages then added coordinating glitter.  #193 Martha's Yard Art Glitter was used on the dots below.

Step 12
Sticky tape was applied to the back of the butterfly piece and was adhered to one of the pages of the chipboard album to create a solid cover.

Step 13
Heather used the Ultra fine Metal Tip and Designer's Dry Clear glue to add some decorative strokes to the digital paper.  Here you can see the #243 Gingerbread and #109 Cavalado on the leaves. The #717 Poupon Glitter was used on the cream rose, and  #267 Cheeky Pink on the Pink roses.  
Step 14
  #317 Dew Drop glitter runs across the top of the album and #160 Rose Gold runs up along the left side.
Step 15
The frames were elevated with 3d Foam tabs so that tags could slide behind for easy storage.  Heather will be journaling on the front and backs of tags.

#85 Crystal Art Glitter was applied to the flower petals on the right.  #268 Pink Smoothie Art Glitter was added to the tag.  Pink Organza was used for the tag top.
