Week in the Life: The Album

I had this dingy white album lying around waiting for a use for some time now.  I remember the time I was about to donate it with other things I had no use for and I pulled it back because I apparently can't decrease my scrapbooking stash.  I'm glad I didn't now.

I forgot who made this album (I covered the inside with paper and forgot to write down the manufacturer), but I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be a wedding album.  The cover was a white fake leather finish, and it got really dirty. I covered the front, back and the spine with paper I had from my stash, some washi tape, and bookbinding glue. Looks so much better now.

I also tried to use up a bunch of items in my stash, especially the newer items - the stamps, my mistable trim, my DIY Thickers (LOVE these!).

I'm always afraid these microbeads are going to flake off, so I put down a layer of Glossy Accents and spread it around with my finger for good measure.  Hopefully it stays!

It's a lot going on for the cover, but I'm glad I used a bunch of stash items and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.
