Celebrate Life Mini Pocket Album | Little Birdie Crafts


Hi Everyone Kerrie back with another project for Little Birdie Crafts
this time I have created a little mini album using their Celebrate Life 6x6 pad 


This mini is so quick to create and you can use it to send gift cards or add some favourite photos from a special event or use it as a little brag book 


to create the base you just need 3  and a half sheets of 6x6 patterned cardstock single sided or 3 sheets if you have double sided paper.
Step 1 | score the first one at 3" and fold in half, cut another sheet in half and adhere to the top outer
Step 2 | Cut a strip from the 6x6 patterned cardstock and adhere to inside right side and slot the first page insert to see where you need to score to create a wrap around 
Step 3 | repeat as per 2nd insert to create your third and outer page 
I have created mine to match up with the amount of pattern I want showing out the side to create the pocket layers
Step 4 adhere the pages together making sure to only add adhesive to the top and bottom edges as you want to create pockets 


Using Sculpture Paste and a silicone mold I created some leaves, just leave in the mold to dry and then paint using White Gesso


using French Rose Chalk Pain I painted my Primed Chipboard Round Flourish 



While the chipboard is still wet sprinkle on some Strawberry Lips Shimmer Hodge Podge and set aside to dry


next I fussy cut some pieces from the fussy cut sheets in the pad and then layered all my pieces on the front adding some handmade flowers as one can never create without some gorgeous LBC flowers 
I then added some more Strawberry Lips Shimmer Hodge Podge this time using Gel Medium to adhere the bling where I wanted


finish off with punched out pieces and some journal cards tucked into the pockets (you can add photos or gift cards or a combination of all into the pockets if you prefer 
Add some string wrapped around to hold the album closed

Birthday Shaker Card | Little Birdie Crafts

Hi Everyone, Kerrie here with another project for Little Birdie Crafts

Many years ago I was queen of shaker cards and I am so happy to see that they are once again popular as I do love a shaker card.
For my card today I have used Little Birdie's Boho Dreams collection as those who follow me know i love this colour combo and this collection 

first up I cut two pieces of patterned paper to use as my base layers, I then applied mixed media paste using stencil to add some texture 
while the paste was still wet i sprinkled on Silver Stars Twinkle Melange and set aside to dry
 I then watercoloured the circle frame and the flowers, once dry i pulled the frame part and created a window by adding some acetate to the back of the watercoloured frame. I also adhered a doily to the base I popped the base onto a paper doily to give another layer to my shaker 

I then double layered foam tape around the circle opening to give my shaker mix room to shake 
for my shaker mix I used a combination of Little Birdie blings 
next up I rubbed Silver Metallic Wax over the texture paste to add dimension and to take the whiteness from the paste
Once I had layered on my fussy cut pieces , flowers and sentiment I then applied some Gel Medium randomly to my cluster and sprinkled on some Micro Beads and Rainbow Sparkle and then finished off with some spatteres of watered down gesso

Flat Mail Mini Album | Little Birdie Crafts


Hi Everyone Kerrie back with another tutorial for Little Birdie Crafts  
I have been inspired by so many flat mail/happy mail projects I have seen on instagram and thought I would create a mini album that I could pop some embellishments in to send out as a RAK to someone. 
I created my mini album base using one sheet of 12x12 patterned cardstock from Little Birdie's Shabby Chic Bouquet collection


  
as you will see this is a flat mini except for the flower on the front which to flatten down you can remove the pearl centre and add a flat pearl or a bling centre





to start I scored at 4" from the bottom of base cardstock


then to create the min album page folds I scored at 1/8" on either side of 4" and 8" this gives the mini album base some depth for adding embellsihments


cut out the sections on bottom as this will fold up to create pockets


before sticking down your pockets add some patterned cardstock to all three sections of your album


embellish from of pockets with doily pop outs and journaling card, I have also added a border with black fine pen to add some definition to my layers, I also inked the edges again to give the illusion of depth to the layers


I cut three tags from patterned cardstock again doing a lined border and inking


to create the front embellishment, I added a paper clip so that the flower cluster embellishment can be removed and added to the recipients project  


I left the pearl center in the flower but as I said earlier you can remove it and add a flat pearl or a flat diamonte 


I added journaling cards, burlap doilies and fussy cut pieces adhered to paperclips to slip into each pocket. I also removed the little pearl centers of these mini flowers and replaced them with mini flat pearls 


you can change out the embellishments and add photos or your could add messages and give this mini as a special card




I finished off with some watered down gesso splatters
