Hi, Lekha here……..
Before I share my project today, let me announce the winners of the Sizzix Challenge. The winner is RISHITA THOMAS. She shared this elegant & classy white on white card. We absolutely loved the use of dies here.


The runner up is VINITA JAIN. Here is her gorgeous circle card with some awesome details.
                                                   Vinita's gorgeous card

Congratulations ladies, please email {} within a week to claim your Prize(only winner) and badges.

And now over to another huge project..Have u checked out WRMK 'albums made easy" range...they have huge collection with linen as well as leather album in some cool colors. If you like keeping photo "positives" for a memory, or creating scrapbook layouts than these are for you.
These are 12x12 inch D-ring albums with metal corner and spine accents. The album includes photo sleeves and page protectors (though you can get wide variety of WRMK LINEN ALBUMS.)
And whats more...these hold up to 100 pages..that is a lot of photos and some amazing memories.

So lets gets my DT kit I got this lovely Butter colored Linen album..
And some very pretty papers from Mixed Company pattern paper and  Maggie Holmes pattern paper from Crate paper.
The packaging says 12x12 inch but believe me its 15x12 inch for the album cover (that is a huge space!!) 

You can design it in many ways..mix media, stamping, shabby chic layouts or simple scrapbook layouts..I chose to do a bright scrapbook layout. 

For the layout I decided on a layered look with distressed edges.
For the edges you can use a pair of scissors(blade side) to distress it and than ink it on the edges. Any inks can be used.

More layers are in the form of tags ..these are hand cut, used eyelet punch/setter and some satin ribbons.Notice the 'Dream' word that is from the latest stamp release at the store. Lovely designs..if you still haven't got them I recommend putting some in shopping cart.

If you are following our blog you would have read my post on wrmk Banner tool..(i created some huge banners there!) here is a cute little penant and flag banner with little gem alphabets. Stuck the banner with hemp twine.

The center of the cover houses space for 4x4 inch photo. I have cut the rectangle ornate chipboard piece at opposite ends and stuck in a way that it forms perfect space for a 4x4 inch photo.This is the focal point of this album cover.
These chipboard can be hand painted, heat embossed or used as it is...I am a big hoarder of these and love to paint or heat emboss them. Here I have painted them in gold.

And now the embellishing journey starts..I love these paper flowers ,you add them to any project and the looks just pops out!..
And yes before I forget since these are linen album they took so well to the stenciling.I used a script stencil( stencils are great for breaking the monotonous backgrounds and adding some depth).
Also have used a bit of  tiger tail near the bottom leaf.And some enamel dots finish the project.

Here is the complete layout for this album cover page.

Hope you liked the makeover ...Do leave some love in the comments.
Happy crafting!!
