Santa Album

I was organizing my stash and came across some oldies that I decided to use on this album. I'm sure some of you know this but it was new and fun for me. I had some old MM epoxy word icons that had turned yellow over the years. I hated to throw them away so I decided to see what happened if I put stickles on the back. Loved how it turned out! Again I had some old epoxy letter stickers that were yellow, so I painted the letters on the back with arylic paint (2 coats) then put glossy accents on the back,and viola new letters (love)!
The ribbon and buttons were from an old make and take that I decided to take apart, since I didn't like the project but loved the ribbon and buttons. Presto, a little "tree"
The metal frame, I used 10 Second metal, cut the Sizzix frame with my CB and then used a CB embossing plate to emboss the frame. Painted the frame with some red acrylic, wiped it off and added a little stickles for shimmer. I also cut a chipboard frame to back the metal. I filled in the embossing on the back of the metal, with spackling so it won't flatten with glued down and let it dry.
