Tips & Tricks

Hello Diva's


Hey, hey bloggers!Rita Barakat here, I've decided to utilize my blog here at two peaas stasrting wiht htis post!  I am so excited to share this new Clears Scraps album (This is new for CHA!!!) And I am sure you recognize the GCD Studios Artsy Urban line I used to fill it up! I am so excited about this Mini album, it’s called…..Diva! LOL! It is so cute perfect for all you divas to carry!




Now, I don’t have any pictures in this because I made it especially for CHA and I just got it so I didn’t have a lot of time but I was thinking what a cute gift this would make and they could fill it with their pictures, or journaling , maybe a graduate gift …




When working with acrylic it is important to use a really good adhesive – I use Zip Dry, it sticks quickly and doesn’t fall off. For the cover I used a little in the middle of the butterflies and they look great! (The little frame is from Melissa Frances and the words are from Jenni Bowlin)




This page is actually clear so I put the mat for journaling or a picture. The butterfly really pops, you know I love bling! The back of the butterfly looks good too because it is solid silver. The black lace you see is actually another page I made out of a Hambly Screen Prints.




I love red, white and black together, classic. Prima bling…Did I mention I love bling?




Do you see the two scrolls on each side? Those are glued to the acrylic and when you lift the acrylic page the pattern paper and card is on the next page.




Can you see what that says? It says “be kind to your dreams”. Good advice. Isn’t that girl cute? I have wanted to use her for something! One layer of flowers is on the acrylic, the cute girl flowers and sign are on the next page.




I am thinking more and more this would be a good album for my dd who is headed off to college in THREE DAYS! :(

“Dare to fly” is a good motto for her now.




The last page has the pattern paper and the chipboard on a chipboard page. The black frame is another Hambly Screen print cut to size.




And there it is! TFL!
