April - Paper Collection of the Month

It's the last day of the month, and I remembered to post my projects.  I think I deserve a round of applause, dontcha think?  ;)

This month, I chose another DCWV Stack.  They are incredibly convenient, super duper cute and easy to find.  These projects are all part of the "La Creme" Collection, a sophisticated black and cream palette.

I chose a LOVE word book by Bo Bunny for this Wedding album:
A combination of silk, prima and fabric flowers combined with black rhinestones and a package of wedding-themed 3d embellishments and turned this blank chipboard album into something classy and elegant.

I also made this 6x6 acrylic album:

And finally, I added a few red Valentine-theme papers to this collection and made the following album, which spells out I {HEART} YOU.  I left out any paper that had the cream color and went more for strict black and white.  Adding a few sheets of inexpensive red papers created an entirely new look!

I'm always happy to answer your questions or hear your comments - so don't be shy!

Thanks for looking and I hope you get some inspiration for your own albums.
