For this project, I decided to finally finish decorating a shaker album kit from ClearScraps to house some pictures from last year's pumpkin patch at the Atonement Academy (part of the AHG troop #TX0814 fundraiser):
I started this album following Clear Scraps instructions about staining the wooden pieces and adding the papers, as well as assembling the shaker cover. Then, I diverted by adding other elements and modifying the included stickers from Carta Bella to spell out Patch in my banner, which I hanged from a vine ribbon. The ribbon, pearl cabochons, and metal leaves are part of a 3D embellishments box (in the top middle of the collage picture).
Materials (stickers are part of the Clear Scraps kit):
I used my SNAP to die cut some pumpkins as embellishments and to trim the pictures using some banners and pumpkins dies:
Here some close up pictures of the cover:
and an example of the inside pages (more pages to come yet):
The shaped pictures don't need extra mats and the colorful Carta Bella papers are a perfect background:
