Scallop Initial Mini Book

Here is a basically BARE scallop initial chipboard album transformed into a mini book. I found a bottle of Yellow Glossy Paint from Martha Stewart at Michael's which was the perfect color for each page of this project. Painting this with some gloss with help to keep it clean. The leaves are cut using Sizzix Branch w/Leaves die throughout the album. Butterflies are a SU Sizzlit die with Stardust Stickles down the center. Flowers are various size and shapes from my stash!!!! I was able to use this cool McGill Mini Petal Punch with 7 small flower punches - yup - 7 small flower punches. These small flowers were the perfect varying sizes. By applying a blob of Glossy Accents to the center, each flower became dimensional (even tho it took a while to dry completely). Paper used is from AC Patterned Paper Card stock pack: Heat Wave. The initial is white with micro fine glitter. Fun and bright ribbons are attached to the metal ring. Finished project size is 4-1/2" x 4-1/2".

Each page has a 3" mat ready for photos.
Solid color pages are embossed Cuttlebug Spots & Dots folder.
See another pair of Flip Flop embellishment?
See the Bumble Bee clip?

Some close-up photos of the cover: see the Bumble Bee clip and the pink flip flops? And, a couple of "dew drops" used on the larger flowers.
And, a very happy crafting day to you all!
