Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy pocket page mini album

Hello there, everyone!

Writing a quick post today--it's a Monday morning and work is about take over. But first, I have to show you this pocket page mini album I made using a 6.5" paper pad from Kaisercraft--it is their Blae and Ivy collection. I have not seen another mini album using these papers, but I loved the blue-green palette, so here it is!

I used grey cardstock as the base because I wanted to keep the palette cool--black would bring in more contrast than I wanted. The cardstock was a little too heavy for easy binding, though. I have been more mindful of buying cardstock of the correct weight since making this album.

Watch the video flip-through:





And here are a few pictures--sorry I do not have glam shots. All technical details are in the video :)



Front cover: handmade flowers, leaves, doilies, Prima bling, and chipboard accents that I painted black and then went over with silver acrylic paint; used the same silver acrylic paint on the resin frame too
