I decided to dress mine up with a combination of My Mind's Eye patterned paper, white acrylic paint, Die-namics and embellishments.
I used the Pure Innocence Love You With All My Heart stamp set. I stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and colored her with Copic markers. There is a doorway in the album that is perfect for showcasing your favorite little Pure Innocence character.
I used the Banner Day Alphabet and Banner Day Die-namics die to spell out E M M A across the album. Confession, I have FIVE Banner Day dies, so I only had to crank the dies through three times. One time per paper. LOVE that.
I used a sentiment from the Pure Innocence Princess stamp set and adorned it with some 4mm Swarovski crystals. I also added a row of Rolled Flowers along the bottom of the front cover, that were cut from coordinating patterned paper.
I painted the back-side of all the pages of the book, and then distressed all the pages with random paint strokes all over the place.
Here is the inside of the back cover. Again, it is covered in coordinating patterned paper and distressed with paint. I added a single Rolled Rose just for fun. :)
I hope Miss Emma enjoys her album. :)
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon! Only 19 days until Christmas. Are you as excited as I am?
