Epiphany Crafts and Authentique: Memory Books

Wahoo!  Epiphany Crafts has paired up with Authentique Paper this week.  This is a match made in heaven!  I decided to try something new this week.  Normally I am intimidated by mini albums, but I was so inspired by Go-To Gal Julie Campbell's project a couple of weeks ago, I thought I would try my hand at making a memory book.  I'll admit, I was a bit shocked at how quickly it came together.  Have a look: 

Holy cow!  Aren't these colors fabulous?  I sewed some double sided ribbon to the cover to make a bow closure.  So perfect for a summer travel album! 

The little ladybugs are made using Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 Tool and matching bubble caps.  I drew a line and dots on some paper and then made the embellishment.  The head is a regular ol' paper punch with a couple of white dots.  So easy! 

Here are a few peeks of the inside: 
So much wonderful color I can hardly stand it! 



My brain favors order and symmetry, but I was surprisingly content with the randomness of the contents.  I was so pleased I whipped up another for my son with Authentique's Loyal Collection.  

 I created an envelope closure with two Round 20 buttons and some jute twine.



I can't wait to see what my kiddos decide to put in their books! 

Wishing you many happy summer memories!
