One of my CHA projects was to use this adorable heart shaped album by Maya Road with Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker's new It's Raining, It's Pouring collection of papers and stickers.
I started out by painting all of the chipboard pages with red paint and then punching holes in the scallops of the front and back cover. The little images on the cover are die cuts cut from one of the papers in the collection.
To make this project even more fun, I knew I had just the right photos for it. Even with the pages covered with either patterned papers or full photos, I still painted the edges of the heart shapes with the red paint so they would look finished. I also "glued" the papers and photos on with Mod Podge because I find it to work the best for me and then I also did give a light coat of the Mod Podge to each page. I find it just seems to finish off the project and it also makes it safe for little hands.
I just love every single pattern in this collection. So many of them are perfect for any "rain" related photo but there are other prints that can stand alone for any project.
