Leanne | C'est La Vie Mini Album Tutorial..

Posted by Leanne on

Hello Sassy Friends!

Today I am going to share with you a step by step tutorial on how I created the front cover of the mini album I shared with you last week.

Gather your supplies:
watercolour paper, water colour paints, C'est La Vie patterned paper from Pink Paislee, butterfly die or punch, enamel dots, embroidery thread, foam dots.

step 1. Using a small off cut of water colour paper, create a simple tag and thread the hole with embroidery thread to match your patterned paper. Paper punch or die cut three butterflies in varies sizes.

step 2. Wet the water colour tag with water, then apply a small amount of paint. Continue to add paint until you are happy with the coverage on the tag. Allow to dry.

step 3. Trim a piece of watercolour paper and the C'est La Vie #3 paper to 4x4in. Trim the middle from the patterned paper, leaving the lower edge slightly wider to create a polaroid effect. Fussy cut a flower image from the C'est La Vie #10 paper.

step 4. Wet the water colour card generously with water and then apply the paint the same as with the small tag. Allow to dry. Once the paint has dried, apply foam tape/dots to the reverse side of the patterned paper and carefully line up the two 4x4in squares.

step 5. Start to assemble the cover. Layer the butterflies onto the tag and fold the wings upwards. Adhere the tag to the polaroid frame. Add the fussy cut flower image beneath the tag layer and adhere the wood veneer sentiment to the lower polaroid edge.

step 6. Finish the front cover by adding it to a large Heidi Swapp Color Wash water colour tag. Complete with enamel dots and the C'est La Vie word jumble stickers.
