This baby is Chicago Bound :):):)

Hey there everyone, hope you are all having a good week so far. I had the most exciting message yesterday :):) I had not posted this mini album that I had made a few weeks ago so yesterday I posted it to the Jillibean facebook page. Soon after that I got a message from Kimber wanting to know if I would loan this to her and Jill for the Jillibean booth at CHA!!!! I about fell of my computer chair :):) So I thought I would share the cover with you today and I will share the rest with you later.

We have had a couple of very special birthdays in my family this past month. My grandson is turning one and I wanted to create an album for this special day. I had some chipboard laying around that would be perfect for this project. I cut the chipboard to 5" x 6". Ladies let me just tell you the best tip ever today....but first you need to grab some of The Best Glue Ever and a paintbrush.

What I did is super easy!! Using the fine tip just simply go around the edge of the chipboard and make a "sqiggy" line of glue. Now take the paintbrush and smooth out the line....it's really that simple. Once you have done this just place your paper down and it's done! There are no lumps under your paper at all and it is completely stuck!! After this is done you are ready for ink and decorations. This really makes covering your albums a breeze and you will find yourself wanting to make alot more. I am on album number 3 for the month already :):) Take a look at the latest album.

Another great use for The Best Glue Ever is that it is easy to place just is small areas. If you look at this close up picture I used a thin strip of it on the number 1 so that it just stuck to the paper with the candles on it to give it that popped up look! Just a small dab goes along way ladies.

Supplies used on this mini: Jillibean; Spotted Owl Soup, mini alphas & Corrugated Kraft Alphas, ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever, Maya Road Large resin flower, Rander distress ink.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day.
