Cycles, Sprockets, and Lacquer

The laser-cut cover and nest-a-bling
Happy Monday! Today I am sharing with you another awesome product from Want2Scrap--Sakura Hobby Crafts is teaming up with their products this month for their projects. I saw this laser-cut chipboard album in their inventory and immediately knew I wanted to use it for Will's Firecracker 100 photos. For the last 3 years Will has participated in an annual cycling race/ride that occurs in our area. His first ride was 10 miles, he was 9 and he rode with his Dad. His last ride, last year he rode 26 miles solo. I am always amazed at his determination for this sport and proud of his accomplishments. This album was perfect for sharing that story and creating for him a book of memories.
The Spritely Sprocket album comes with a laser-cut cover and matching nest-a-bling, 4 additional 8×8" pages, and rings. I hope you enjoy my project!

The Firecracker 100 Album--method

inside cover with title

First year spread. The pages were covered with tissue and paper adhered with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer. The edges were highlighted with mixers--as was the laser-cut cover of the album.

Second year spread. Photos were matted with white card stock. Year cards were hand written and doodled and a bicycle brad was added to each.

Third Year Spread. Stamps were added to continue the store of determination and success. 

Thank you for looking!
