Acrylic album fun!!! - I've been tagged!!!

I've always wanted to make an acrylic album, so this weekend I tried my hand at making two of them.

The first album is one that I made for myself to celebrate some great fall pics from this year.

The four 8" x 8" acrylic sheets only cost $4! Just go to your local Home Depot or Lowes and they will even cut the acrylic to the size you want.

I used flowers, gems, rubons, and stamps to decorate the pages. Stazon ink is a must because it is meant for non-porous surfaces.

The holes were cut using my Crop-a-dile. I used Karen Foster Scrapper's Rings to hold the pages together and decorated them with fibers and ribbon.

Here are some views:

This second album has a completely different look. It's fresh and funky and was made to celebrate my friend, Rhi's, birthday!

Happy Birthday, Rhi!!!

This time I used a Krylon paint pen to rub along the outer page edges. It worked really well, as it dried in no time! I used Hambly transparencies, as well.

The lovely Wendy Malichio . tagged I'm about to pass along the lovin';

Here are the instructions for the seven others that I'm going to tag...the seven I choose to tag are:

Theresa Tyree

Debbie McCaffrey

Kelly Blair

Janette Zomer

Rhi Cooksey Quinton

Liz Ness

Michelle Stanzione


1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself (on your blog, we all want to know them).

3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Okay now the seven random facts about ME....
let's see;
1. I wear socks to bed...don't know why...just have to!
2. I must have an orderly wallet, meaning I can't have money sticking out of things
unzipped or unbuckled!
3. I am a huge PROCRASTINATOR...just horrible!
4. I get nervous on trips...trying to get over this!!!
5. My favorite food is seafood...could eat it all of the time!!!
6. I hate beer and wine!!! Most alcohol, for that matter. My drink of choice is a
sombrero (milk and kaluha)
7. Like Wendy, I rush way too much and miss out on life's little pleasures way too
often...have to slow down. Trying really hard to be better at that!
