Bling'n the Mini - Crown Album


On the Imaginisce blog this week, it's all about the bling!! We are all crazy about the I-rock tool, and are having mini blog hops all week, to show you all the fun things you can do with it.

Today we are showing off some mini albums, that we've jazzed up with lots of bling! Here's what I made...


As soon as I got the Enchanted range, I just knew I had to use it on this crown album. Could it be more perfect for it?


Now, I didn't bling up every page in this album. I found it better to use the I-rock on only one page for every double page 'layout' in the album, so the crystals wouldn't be banging up against eachother, and also so the album didn't get too bulky.

On this page, I kind of used bling to add interest to the background, instead of covering it with patterned paper...


And how could I not put a gorgeous big I-rock crystal into the circles at the top of the page...

And the images on one of the patterned papers, were PERFECT for cutting out to go on these ones...


I've also added some cardstock journalling pages, inbetween the crown pages, to record all of Em's favourite things, but I won't post them on here, or this post will just go on forever!

Are you ready to go check out some more blinged up minis? Rhonda's Blog is your next stop on our mini hop, so go and check out what she has created. Don't forget - make sure you are a follower of all of our blogs, and leave a comment at each one, then finish up the hop back at the Imaginisce Blog, for your chance to win your own bundle of I-rock goodies from Imaginisce!

CUTE CUTE CUTE! I love that you juxtaposed the crown shape with rectangular paper and photos! I always try to shape the paper and the photo and never like how it looks. The mini is fantastic!!

Kathy said...

Super cute mini! I love all the bling! And I like that you used black and white pics. I love printing my pics in black and white; it allows for the papers to shine and not have to always match colors in the pics. Thanks for sharing!
