Tranquility Trilogy...

I love that name! We're back to show you our newest stamp set featuring triangles! So many fun things you can do with them. My assignment was to use them as a pennant/banner on something other than a card. I decided to make a mini album cover for my daughter, Kati, who just had her 6th birthday! I thought...why spend SO much time working on each page for a mini album, just decorate the cover super cute and fill it up with all of the cute pictures from her birthday party! That's what I am going to do.
Here is the cover all decorated. I used chipboard for the cover and back and a Maya Road chipboard for the part the banner is hanging off of. Paper is by Crate Paper with the exception of the numbers paper - By the Numbers- and the pink plaid is Hometown Summer by Pink Paislee.  I used a new stamp for the Celebrate that is coming out on the 15th and the set is called Half & Half.

Birthday albums should be fun, right? So I wanted to add lots of color.
I like the pop of the teal seam binding. I added little bits of pink pom pom trim to the top of the banner, Prima flowers and a Melissa Frances resin swirl. When I get time, I will get all of the photos printed out and added inside. My printer is on the fritz right now!

Ohmygosh...I can't believe that with each release your selections (and what all of you do with them) get better and better. If only I had an unlimited bank balance. ;)

You're right - that pop of teal is the perfect addition. Great little mini album!

Wow,the colors are so soft and the banner with the embellishments, gosh, so pretty. The strands of thread left hanging adds a delicate touch with the other strings.
