Fabrics, Fun, Albums & More!

We're back today with more fabric crafts!

Fabrics offer the same beautiful prints and designs as many of our scrapbook papers we all reach for.  The beauty of working with fabric is the flexibility to mold it, shape it and make it into something not only beautiful to look at but also to touch.

Today's project from Designer Carole Janson will have you once again running to pick up these beautiful fabrics from Cosmo Cricket and their adorable products along with your favorite Glue Arts Adhesives!!




Sew Sweet Mini Album
Designer: Carole Janson


Supplies:
Glue Glider Pro
FabricBond Cartridge Refill- Pro
Extreme Adhesive Squares

Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Fabric
Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Chipboard
Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Pattern Paper
Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Button







I covered an Album with the Cosmo Cricket Fabric and added some Material Girl Chipboard to match.
First I picked out a 6 x 6 album.


The I pulled the album apart so I could cover the front and back covers with the Fabric, for this I used the Glue Art Fabric Bond, once I had the Fabric in place with the Glue Art Fabric Bond I ironed it down.


Next I covered the album with some more Cosmo Cricket Fabric and also some fun chipboard, to match the theme.


I also added a gingham bow to give a nice finishing touch to the album.


I also created some pages that matched the album with places to stick your photos.




We hope we've inspired you with our Fabric Creations this month! 


Our sincere thanks to Cosmo Cricket for providing us with their fun and oh so sweet fabrics to play with!! 


And don't forget...you have one more opportunity to leave us a comment for this week's prize drawing. We'll select a random winner on Friday receive our new Fabric Bond cartridge, a Glue Glider Pro {because you have to have the Pro!!} and some of our ribbon adhesive! 


And be sure to tune in Friday to see if you are a winner and for our recap of the Archiver's ScrapFest event.
