Accordion Style Mini-album and Fall madness.

 Can you believe this mess?  This is what my Scrap Shack looks like right now!  YIKES!  October through December are typically absolutely crazy for me.  With pumpkins, Brady's birthday, workshops, gatherings, craft shows, and my annual Crop & Shop for a CURE (which is happening this weekend!!!!!) my craft room stays pretty busy.  Wish I had more time to actually craft, rather than all of the preparation!!!!  It wears me out, but I love it!  Kind of like March Madness for basketball. . .this is Fall Madness for Scrapbooking!

Here is one of the projects I have prepared for this weekend.
It is an accordion style mini-album and it makes a perfect gift!  It can sit open on a mantle or a shelf.  This one would work for a wedding, baby, anniversary, family, or many other special things!!  I still have a couple of things left to do to it, but I was afraid if I didn't take a picture now, I may run out of time!!!!!!

CTMH Supplies Used:
Silhouette Paper Pack~Polka Dots (retired)

Other supplies:
Slice Machine with Wedding, Animal Crackers, and Noteworthy Cartridges

I used the Liquid Glass to secure the small opaques.  Most adhere just fine, but I knew that this project was probably going to be picked up and looked at a bunch and I didn't want to lose any of those cute little gems!  So, I took my embossing stylus and a paper piercer.  I set all of my pearls out where I wanted them. Then I took the paper piercer and picked up or moved the pearl.  I dipped my embossing stylus in Liquid Glass and put a little dot where the pearl had been.  Then I used the paper piercer to move the pearl back into its spot.  It didn't take very long and I know the Liquid Glass will make the pearls very secure!  

I also have completed a few more mini-albums that I will hopefully have a chance to post later!  
I used a Level 1 Kit, My Stickease, and the 6x6 accordion album (as shown above) to make them and they turned out really cute!
