Wall Decor and More Altered Book

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations.  I am so excited to be here today to share with you!  When I got Wall Decor and More, I almost returned it because I was unsure if  would really use it.  Even though I have used it only a few times, each time I have used it I am pleasantly surprised how much I love it!
Usually my posts have step by step but I was experimenting and did not take step by step photos since I was really doubtful that this project would look so nice.  I hope you forgive me.  I will be working on a tutorial over the next week for everyone.
This book started out as a plain canvas album from Hobby Lobby.  I glazed the paper onto the album using Mod Podge Gloss.  After the glue dried, I inked the glazing with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamped with the Script Background stamp from Pink By Design Stamps in Timber Brown Staz On.
I used Core'dinations Gemstones for the paper. All the cuts were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I used Wall Decor and More, Gypsy Font, and Home Decor.
The flowers and butterfly were in my stash.  The scalloped edge is actually a sticker from Pink Paislee.  I inked the sticker with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I did lots of trim on the spine and along the edges.  I hope you are inspired to alter those plain albums and make them a treasure to hold all your memories! As always I appreciate comments, subscribers and followers both here at She's A Sassy Lady and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.  Thank you so much for your continued loyalty.
