Embellished Photo Albums

The hardware is ordered! I read each comment and took everything into consideration...and by unanimous decision the vote was to go for it! There were some concerns though...fingers could get caught or poked, paint could chip off, and I might be constantly straightening them! (which could be true) I never knew there was so much to think about when ordering little ole knobs! lol...Thank you all for your helpful opinions and feedback. I really appreciate it!!

I am working on all kinds of stuff right now...probably too much! lol...I ordered these photo albums at market and they recently came in. What I envisioned for them was nothing like how they turned out! Isn't that usually the way it is? Anyway, I am still experimenting, but I am really liking how they are turning out. I used beautiful ribbons and embellishments. Can you tell I am a ribbon junkie! I love coordinating ribbons...it's almost like coordinating fabrics. I have listed these in my Etsy store if you are interested. Also, if you would like a different letter let me know and can switch it out if I have the letter in stock. More to come!!




I will be doing the Easter mesh wreath tutorial at the first of next week. Hobby Lobby should have their Easter stuff on sale next week (crossing fingers)...but even if they don't I am still going to do it. You don't want to miss it! Oh... and.....my giveaway will be coming up soon...and.....I will have a new blog design coming up soon too!! Lots of new stuff coming up! Have a great weekend!

Kristen,
LOVEEEEE your new embellished photo albums, what a great idea! =) You are the master of ribbon, you always make it look perfect.

I'm happy to hear that you ordered the knobs. My neighbor has those throughout her kitchen and it looks GORGEOUS!!! I really want to add those to mine, too! I'm looking forward to seeing your kitchen with the new knobs. The right knobs make all the difference.

Have a great weekend! XOXO ~Liz

The photo albums look great, Kristen! What a nice addition to the frames and a great gift idea {especially with wedding season coming up}.

Melissa Miller said...

Oh those are soooo pretty Kristen! I'll have to think about getting one although I usually have no printed photos done anymore. I need to do that again. Maybe you could make me one with a wedding theme. That would be special and I could transfer my wedding day photos into it.

Love the knobs! Can't wait to see you new blog design. I know it will be lovely.

Hello Kristen! I just love your kitchen with the new beautiful appliances. Can't wait to see the hardware. Your new photo albums are just precious. You are on a roll with your creativity! Thanks for your email recently. It was so sweet of you to think of me. We are still adjusting to having a new baby around the house, but he such a blessing.
Have a wonderful weekend friend.
xoxo,
Kim

Kristen!!!!!!!!!!!! You're killing me here. My frame just arrived and it is STUNNING!!! Now I have to have one of these albums. I want the black/red with an L!

Kristen,

I'm so glad you ordered the knobs. I think you'll be very pleased.

Just an idea about the constant straightening.... maybe when you are installing them, put a small dab of wood glue on the back of the knob before you screw it in... It might help hold it stable.
