Always & Forever - Brag Book by Audrey underwood

Hi there. Audrey here again.
You may have seen the album I did a few weeks ago for a friend. This little brag book is an addition to it. The 49 and Market Foundations Waterfall Enclosure can adhere to a divider in the album but of course, can make a gorgeous little album just by itself.

I chose the white 4×6 enclosure. I decorated the front with one of the pink doilies from the Vintage Artistry Blush Ephemera Stack, some laser cut beads, and sequence. The pages inside are a combination of various collections by 49 and Market and once again I am in awe of how nearly all of the collections can be used to complement each other. Unfortunately, some of the product I’ve used has now been retired but hopefully what I’ve created will inspire you to try your own little booklet using any of the 49 and Market collections. Or maybe you have the same product at home and are inspired to put it to work.

To start the album off I covered all the inside of the enclosure, using various papers from Vintage Artistry Collectors Edition Vol 1 6×8. The great thing about creating mini albums is you can use the smallest of off-cuts as trims. I cropped and trimmed what photos I wanted to use and worked out where and on what page I wanted them. I used a small amount of tape or mounting foam on the back center of each photo and stuck them in place. By only using some adhesive on the center back I was able to go back and tuck and layer any paper, frames, tags, tickets, leaves, flowers, etc behind the photos. You can always go back and add more adhesive if needed. I do suggest this, especially if it’s a gift or going to be flicked through often.

I played with the placement of flowers, leaves, trims, and of course, the awesome laser cuts and once happy stuck it all in place. I added word strips, rub-on transfers, sequence and tiny bead laser cuts, beautiful Wishing Bubbles, and Baubles – Blush here and there, even over photos.

Then I just played until I was happy with the outcome, tucking extra bits of beautiful 49 and Market product where it was needed until I felt it was finished.
