Something Blue



I’m Shereen, married to Aftab and mother of two grown up children. I’ve been a doctor, a business woman, a stay at home Mom and finally doing what I love best which is ‘making pretty things’.

I was asked to make an album which would be a wedding gift.  The parents would put their daughter’s pictures upto the time of her wedding and present it as a gift. I decided to use ‘Something Blue’ collection from Prima. The album has 14, 9”x9” chipboard pages including covers.

For the cover I chose the title ‘Memories of You’.  I used black foam thickers with glitter to spell memories and you. This is the first time I have used a Circular Element as a focal point on the cover. Most of the flowers are from the collection. In addition I’ve used some punched out flowers and buterflies and some mulbery roses. The pearls are from Want 2 Scrap.

I made an acetate pocket on the first spread and used some Prima Lace with pearl swirls on the edge and made some double-sided Tags.

On this page I did a 6″x6″ photo mat and layered it on a black cardstock piece. Flowers are from Prima.

I used quite a few double-sided cards from the double-sided ATC card pack from the something blue collection as photo/ journaling mats. I did a vertical pocket on this page and embellished with a fussy cut rose bunch. I adhered the black ATC card onto the page and made a double-sided tag from ATC cards, for the pocket.

Another page with 2, 4″x6″ mats; the lower one is an ATC card again. Flowers and leaves on left are punched from patterned paper.

The flip book on the left adds space for 7, 4″x6″ pictures. I stamped the two smaller photo/journaling mats on the right.

on this page I placed a 6″x6″ acetate piece which is kept in place with some lace and fussy cut element. I colored in the bird and the flowers o the fussy cut. It allows for a picture to be slipped behind the acetate.

More ATC cards as photo mats

On this page I used some elements that were already printed on the page and adhered a couple of mats. I used black glitter to enhance the horizontal lines and further embellished the page using Prima Swirls.

Used some black glitter and heat embossed the edges of the photo mats with black sparkle embossing powder to coordinate it with the other page of this spread.

On the last spread I placed a large photo mat for a wedding picture. Embellishments include prima flowers, punched butterflies, and the left over swirls. The tag in the right lower corner is from Something blue tags and tickets pack.

Till next time.
