The sun is out, it is in the 80s and finally Summer in Seattle!
I recently found this new stamp set from A.Muse Studio and loved it – one of my niece’s name begins with a B and I’ve always used it as a nickname for her.
‘Bee’, this one’s for you!
You can see all the fun inks and sprays I used – check out the ‘how-to’ today on the IMAGINE Crafts Blog HERE.

This was something new for me – creating an album with some acrylic pages and some chipboard. All of the pages are a different size and shape but once I was done they somehow all fit a theme.
IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko StazOn Jet Black, Cloudy Sky, Opaque Cotton White
IrRESISTible Pico Silver
Encore Metallic Ink in Champagne
Clearsnaps Acrylic Album
Stampendous Script and Scroll border stamp
A Muse Studio Scroll Stamp
Crafters Workshop Stencils; Script and Ledger
Sizzix Camellia Flower die
Various paper, ribbons, pearl embellishments, washi tape
First I took the acrylic pages and using an inkblusher, covered the backside of each with the StazOn Opaque Cotton White – this will help the design on the front show well. Next using the stencils and an inkblusher I added the script design to the cover first in StazOn cloudy sky and then highlighted a few words over that with Jet Black.
I repeated the same process using the Ledger stencil with StazOn Jet Black Ink. I added a few dots to the scalloped edges with the Pico Silver
I traced the shape of the chipboard pages on various decorative papers, cut them out and adhered to both sides of the chipboard with creative medium. Some pages I edged with washi tape, this one is edged with flowers.
The die cut flowers are various papers and vellum stamped randomly with scrips and scroll designs using grey, black and Encore Metallic Ink in Champagne. Once assembled, I adhered the petals and added a pearl center.
Last I used 3 different ribbons to tie the pages together.
