Celebrate childhood: GJS Arrow album

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I am going to show you my first project made as Genuinely Jane Studios DT member (I made a couple, but it was for product swap with my other teams as I didn't get my DT goodies till now).
So my  wooden mini album today is an Arrow one and I love this shape a lot: so trendy, so easy to cut and to cover with paper, so  easy to make it " any occasion" album.
I made this  mini album with my dear grandson's studio photos and the banners, colors and a cupcake in his hands were  my main inspiration for colors, patterns and embellishments of this mini.


 I used Bo Bunny papers to cover all wooden pages; inked around and used stencils with white gesso  on every front page.
Here is my cover and I tried to keep it as flat as possible and with no success after all. I used this Art stencil from CWS over this cover, added a chipboard banner from Tando Creative covered with washi tapes and some K&Co due cuts.  My title was covered with glitter embossing powder and I added some more small home die cuts and blings.


The back sides of all pages are mostly photos and some washi tapes around.Now you can see the photo colors and banners and cupcake on the photo.


My second page front was stencilled with Artistcellar Seven Jewels stencil with  gesso and misted with Dylusions Lemon Zest  mist.Then I added those chipboard Tando cupcakes covered with Liquid Applique  brown paint and Art Anthology Sorbet Frost paint.A bit of chunky glitter and one red Dew Drop as a cherry were great finish for those cupcakes . The sticker sentiment is from Fancy Pants and is for " sweet" cupcake or other memories.




The second photo is very similar to the first.


My third front page is for " perfect": my grandson is such a perfect little guy.
Here I used CWS Numbers stencil and Calipso Teal Dylusions mist over a dark paper with one single BB 3d sticker as a title of the page.


Another photo was glued on the back.


The last front page: another Artistcellar stencil Flower of Life with Dylusions   Bubblegum pink mist and a chipboard Happy word covered with blue glitter.



So this was my lovely  Arrow mini album.
And if you want to make a very similar one, just go to GJS shop and pick your favorite shape. So easy, so fancy, so much fun to make one.
And for one more day there is 35% sale in the shop!  You need to see to believe as  those prices are  the best for all kinds of mediums, mists, inks ,GJS most gorgeous wooden mini albums and much much more!
And now for some web challenges I enter this project to:
