Woodrowe Mini CD Album

Monday, November 03, 2008

HOW CUTE IS THIS!  Julie Griffith's So Much Laughter CD Album was my inspiration for this DARLING little guy!

I had some Mini CDs and couldn't resist making this savvy little mini album!

This album is SO easy to make ... here are the basic supplies I used to make this ...

I grabbed my Large Purple Scallop Punch and some pieces from my Woodrowe Collection and started punching!  {If you don't want to use your Woodrowe you can also use your Reece and Willoughby Collections to achieve a similiar look!}


Basically, I made it exactly like the Sydney CD Album ... only smaller!  It's the details that really POLISH this album up!  Remember these white edges ...


I used my Stipple Brush and Burnt Umber Ink to take the 'edge off' so to speak.


It's a little detail that has a HUGE impact on your finished projects!


Next I attached my scallop circles to my Mini CDs using my Zip Dry and my Brayer.


Here are my 'front's' all covered ...


and here are my 'backs' ...


On the CDs that you see BLUE ... you really are seeing BLUE!  These CDs happen to have a BLUE tint on the back side so I incorporated it into my design.  (I have no idea if they all come this way or not ... these are the only ones I've ever had).

I punched the holes in my CDs.


I decided to attach a Pewter eyelet to each of my CDs this time.


Notice the BROWN CD on the right end ... the 'clean' side of the eyelet faces the back of the mini album.  This gives my final piece a more POLISHED and CLEAN look!

Next I attached my CDs to a ring ... this is the front ...


and this is the back ...


and this is what each inside spread looks like without any embellishment ...





Did you notice how I made each spread either BLUE or WHITE (the colors of the CD).  I wanted to create a cleaner look so I paired each color up with its matching color.  Maybe I may mix it up a bit on the next mini album I do ... we'll have to see! 

Isn't this AWESOME!  Again, FAST and EASY ... simple, smart and sophisticated!  This is SO my kind of project!  This is an afternoon project for sure!  If you have scraps ... this may be a GREAT way to utilize them and make a FABULOUS little album for someone you love!

I hope you feel inspired!  Have a GREAT day!
