Cupcakes album...

I have been doing some more work on my "Cupcakes" album today. :) The next step was to make and decorate the cover...

The white cardstock that you can see below is the cover - with a reinforced chipboard spine covered by pretty star paper. I have also made chipboard copies of the front and back and covered them with the same paper. They will go on the inside to make it sturdier.

I turned my cover over and decided to start by covering it in old book pages. This would follow the look of some of the inside pages. I went with the same cupcake stamps as before and a "Smile" stamp by Heidi Swapp.


Time to play with my Twinkling H2Os. I'm so glad I remembered that I had these when I was looking for something to colour my pages with :)

The next step is to add a button/ribbon to close the book and to bind the pages inside. So that's what I'm off to do now :)

Edited to add: forgot to say that the cupcake stamps are by Maya Road.
