Damask Divas - Chantilly Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Damask Divas blog hop featuring the Chantilly paper pack.   If you came from Ashley Greaux, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at the Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of participants.

My project is a 6x6 accordion album.  

I purchased three of these online so I could decorate one for each of my little ones.  The Chantilly paper was perfect for this.  I made each of the shapes on the pages in the craft room to fit how I wanted in the 6x6 space, making them large enough for photos and embellishments.  I made a small tag for journaling because I am not a very good writer :(. The flowers are from Art Philosophy and they range in size from 1 1/4 to 2 1/4.  The branches were cut at 2.5 and I scored the leaves down the middle so I could bend them.  I also added an envelope for any keepsake items we may want to save - that was cut at about 5in.  I added chocolate ink to all of my edges and added some glitter paper, shimmer trim, and sparkles to finish.

Chantilly paper pack
Chantilly card making kit (ribbon, wooden badge buttons, Kraft cardstock)
