Gilded Lily Envelope Mini-Album ~ Creative Embellishments

Today, I'm sharing a Mini-Album I created using Graphic 45's gorgeous Gilded Lily collection along with some amazing Creative Embellishments Chipboard embellishments! I used the 12 x 12, 8 x 8 and 6 x 6 paper pads from the Gilded Lily collection, as well as the Journaling and Ephemera Cards and the Tags and Pockets. This is a post-bound envelope album that alternates envelope pages (made using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punchboard) and simple flat pages. I've inked the edges of all the envelopes/papers using Distress Ink in Old Paper. These papers are so beautiful and romantic - so I'm going to use this album for some of my wedding pictures!
The Creative Embellishments Chipboard pieces I used throughout the album include the Filigree Corner Set 2, Photo or Page Corners Set 2 and Small Columns. The cover (above) has two pieces from the Filigree Corner Set 2 around the central image. I painted these pieces with Distress Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose but wanted them to be a bit more pink, so I added a coat of ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glaze in Fuzzy Peach and then a Coat of Viva Decor White Crackling Colour. I used another set of the Filigree Corner Set 2 inside the album - and treated it the same but skipped the Distress Crackle Paint.

For the Photo or Page Corners Set 2 and the Small Columns chipboard pieces, I first painted them with acrylic paint in Light Antique White. I then added a generous coat of the Viva Decor White Crackling Colour to the Photo or Page Corners. For the Small Columns, I wanted to make sure you could still make out some of the detail on these gorgeous chipboard pieces, so I used Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy and then inked the columns with Distress Ink in Old Paper. Here are some close-ups of the different chipboard pieces used throughout the album.
Here is a video walk-through I filmed so you can see all the details in the album:


And here are photos of each of the album's pages.











I made this album to fit inside the Gilded Lily Upcycled Jewelry Box I made last year - here's a photo of the album inside the Jewelry Box!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Happy Crafting!
