Today, is day number three of the blog hop and I get to share my project with you today. For my project I altered the New Corset Chipboard Album from Want2Scrap™. This is the front cover. I started by layering paint, crackle accents and inks. **EDIT** The Corset Chipboard Album is now available at Want2Scrap™ in the Online Store!!

Then I added the chipboard pieces and LOTS of Bling! I used Kissimme and Laurie Chipboard pieces from Want2Scrap™. I also hand cut some of the roses from Le' Romantique' Paper Collection from Graphic 45. Then I added Nestabling™ Fancy Tags Two and 72 Count Brown Rhinestones. To add a little more sparkle I used Diamond Stickels.

On the top I added more of the hand cut roses and then I added two Graphic 45 Metal Flowers. In the center I added a felt rose. To make the rose I used Spellbinders S4-351 Spiral Rose One die template. On the sides I added Finesse Swirls White Pearls and 72 Count Brown Rhinestones. Across the top I added Bling Strips White Pearl Wave & Silver Rhinestones. I used Copic marker E27 to add the brown color to the silver rhinestones.


On each page of the album I added an image of a lady and a quote about beauty. On this page I used Maxxi Girl Jumbo Brown Rhinestone Swirl and Nestaboard™ S5-031 Fancy Tags Three.


Here is a close up.


On this page I used Flower Swirls White Pearl and an image of a lady with a quote from Audrey Hepburn.


Here is a close up.

I didn't want to cover up too much of the paper on this page so I added the Nestaboard™ S4-137 Scalloped Hearts with one of the images and Nestabling™ Scalloped Hearts White Pearls. I also added a crochet flower and a couple of trinket pins.

Here is a close up.

For this page I used three butterflies from Want2Scrap™ to match the Graphic 45 Le' Romantique' Paper. The butterflies were white and I added Crushed Shell Glimmer Mist. I also added Finesse Swirl White Pearls and 72 Count Amber Rhinestones.


Here is a close up.


This page is a little more simple. I added three quotes and Nestaboard™ S4-317 Fleur De Lis Rectangles with matching Nestabling™ Fleur De Lis Rectangles White & Black Pearls.


Here is a close up.

For the last page I used another wonderful quote from Audrey Hepburn and Maxxi Girl Brown Rhinestone Swirls.


Here is a close up.


I left the back cover pretty simple, just the paper and lace trim.


Here is a close up of the front when the album is put together.
