I've discovered I despise glue guns. I wanted to smack the computer as Shellie would take her glue gun and with ease glue down trim, ribbon, lace, pearls, flowers, and other items. I had glue everywhere but where it was supposed to go. It wouldn't come out evenly and by the end I've sworn never to use a glue gun again.
I made several changes as the metal glue she used made me gag and it wasn't working. I pulled out super glue and within a few seconds had the metal parts taken care of.
My flowers are Recollections from Michaels and the metal flowers are from JoAnn. The ribbon is from Tim Holtz and fell in love immediately with it.
I added keys to my cover and changed the closure since I couldn't get the metal glue and gears to work. The key hole is from Tim Holtz as well. The keys are from Prima. And I did add the "Bling on a Roll" to the bottom of the paper once I realized I'd missed it.
I changed the spine and made it more intricate. It's probably overkill, but I figured I'd go out on this album. Brads are from Recollections. The punch is from Martha Stewart and has become one of my favorites.
I changed this page to make use the metal butterflies.
This album is much easier to make than it looks as she used the paper in ways that they follow the different sizes. It's the stupid glue gun that killed me.
