Everything Is Rosy Album - Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team Corporate Blog Post

Everything Is Rosy Memory Album

Hello, everyone! My name is Lauren Alarid. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in California and 2019 Artisan Design Team member, and I am so happy to be sharing my creativity on the company blog. Today I wanted to share with you how I created this “Everything Is Rosy” memory album. It features the new Everything Is Rosy Medley Kit (150059). This ridiculously gorgeous kit took my breath away from the moment I first saw it. From the perfectly coordinated items, to the drool-worthy double-sided Designer Series Paper (DSP), I was completely inspired! And let’s not forget about the brand-new Rose Gold Shimmer Paint! I just can’t stop making pretty things with it!

Now because this kit is packed with SO many goodies (It’s basically a “suite-in-a-box”), I knew that I would have plenty of product to work with to create an entire album (and then some). Here's a look at the kit in case you missed it in my previous hop:

 In today’s project, I have created a mini 6” x 6” album that is so simple and so fun to make.
To build the basic structure of your album, you will need 12” x 12” Whisper White Cardstock (124302). Here are the steps:
1.   You will cut this paper directly in half so that you will now have two 6” x 12” pieces.
2.   Repeat this step until you have as many pages as you’d like in your album.
3.   Score each cut sheet in the middle at 6”.
4.   Adhere one side of your scored sheet to the side of another scored 6” x 12” cut piece. Repeat this step until you have adhered all the sheets together. When you are done, it should look like a book.
5.   Next, take a piece of chip board or cardboard (I use the ones that come with my DSP packs) and cut two pieces that measure 6” x 6”.
6.   Lastly, adhere the first page of your 6” x 12” cut page pieces to one side of the cut cardboard and then adhere the last page to the other piece of cut cardboard.

Next you will need to create the binding. The first step is to choose one of the patterns from the 6 x 6 DSP and cut it at 6” x 4”. Then adhere it to the front and back edges of your cardboard cover pages evenly. Take either another piece of coordinating DSP or coordinating cardstock (I chose Melon Mambo Cardstock (115320) for the front and for the back I chose the piece of DSP with navy and gold foil leaves) to cover the rest of your album front and back. I used the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (148026) to emboss the Melon Mambo Cardstock for added texture. Where the binding and cover pieces met, I used the beautiful coordinating ribbons from this kit. One is a lovely Night of Navy with rose gold metallic trim and the other is a Melon Mambo Ruched Ribbon.

For the inside pages I mixed and matched the DSP with coordinating cardstock, and used a the fun printed floral and the rose gold die cuts that come in the kit to embellish my pages. I included a few word die cuts in Night of Navy (100867) and Melon Mambo Cardstock from the Well Written Framelits (148534) as well. Other than the word dies, cardboard, and some ink pads, everything I used to create this album came from the kit. Here’s a look at a few of the page spreads (below):

I also added a few extra details to my pages for more interest. I stamped a few flowers in Powder Pink Ink (147147), dabbed on Melon Mambo Ink (147051) around the edges or center of my flowers with my Sponge Dauber (133773), and layered them throughout my album. To get a fun speckled look with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, I took a toothpick and cut off the tip to give it a blunt end. Then I shook my shimmer paint up well and dipped the blunt end of my toothpick into the lid to pick up some paint. Then I just dabbed on a few dots here and there as accents.

I hope that you have enjoyed this handmade memory album. I truly had so much fun putting it together and the perfect coordination of this kit made choosing paper, elements, and accents to adorn it a no-brainer. The best part was that after creating this entire album, I had tons of product left over! You will definitely want to get your hands on this kit while you can! It’s to die for!

    Thank you so much for your inspiration. I believe your the only one I could find that made an album with this beautiful suite except for some in a different language. So I’m sooo happy I found you
