This countdown book is a kit, it's called the Teresa Collins Christmas Countdown Memory album kit and it comes with all of the pages, tabs, tags, die cuts (tons and tons of them), stickers, envelope and BINDER! It's so fabulous!!
Ok, so if you follow me at all I of course had to change it a bit so I started with some ink.... Imagine that!
So I pulled everything out and started inking in distress ink: Worn Lipstick - Now I did this lightly, just wanted to tint the outer edges of my pages and all of the die cuts. Then I went back and added MORE ink - this time I used brushed corduroy around all of the edges of everything.
But you know... It just wasn't enough for ME... soooooo... I went back again and added cream colored PAINT to all the edges of the binder and all of the pages and all of the larger die cut embellishments...
Then as I was layering I decided to start adding flowers, and I thought they were to plain for my soft pink but vintage book... So I glazed all the creamy white flowers using glossy accents - Yes, I had to wait overnight for them to dry real well. It was worth the wait!
I love the creamy papers combined with the reds and a hint of pink! The green sticker sheets with numbers were just the perfect touch for a little contrast!
I'm a big fan of these pages in the book, There are so many fun shapes and edges!
I also used the washi tape on many of my pages from the Christmas Cottage. Such a great touch!
So, the next time you have a kit, don't be afraid to change things up and go for it! There are no rules!
Have a great week!!
