"What You May Not Know?"

Hello Everyone! It's Virginia here - I am so excited to share my project with you today! So in answer to my question, "What you may not know???" is how easy it is to make quick and easy and beautiful projects with Urban Lily products. I would like to share two of my projects with you.

Here is an adorable mini album I made in 30 minutes or less. It took me longer to wait for the glue to dry than to put the album together! hee hee

Wanna learn how to make this little gem?

Using Mini Book Bright, I cut out each of the 5 pages and the cover. The pages were scored and adhered back to back. (See image below.)

Before attaching the cover, this is what the scored cover looks like. I cut a slit in the 1st and 4th panel so that I could thread ribbon through to tie the book closed. (The image is turned backwards to clearly show the ribbon threading.)

To secure the pages in the cover, I cut a piece of paper, approximately 2.5"x1" and scored at 3/8" and 5/8" to create a "valley" 0.25" wide.

This "book binding" was glued to the pages with the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

Once the glue is thoroughly dry, glue the book contents to the book cover.

Voila! You have a gorgeous mini album in minutes! Below are the pages from the mini album. I promised my girls that they can write their names in the album.

I love Urban Lily products ALOT!!!! Here is a layout I did of my youngest daughter using Polo (from the Blink Collection) and Ink (also from the Blink Collection). I added gems from Glitz Design and a whole lotta pop dots! LOL The title was created using the letters from the Alphabet paper plus a few letters from Making Memories tiny alphas.

Here is a couple close-ups...
