I used Rub and Buff on the Lions Head to add a shine and I used Stickles on the flowers to add some shimmer which I'm not sure that you can see very well in the photo.
Most of my embellishments are chipboard and the album itself is constructed with chipboard and cardstock. I love this paper collection and I think it is perfect for the Fall, and to top that off it is unisex...you give it to a girl or a guy (smiles).
Just another page I thought I would share. They are all pretty much the same with minor embellishments.
Lastly just to give you an idea of how much room there is to add stuff here is a top side view. The gussets are 1/2 inch so you can overload this little mini and it is built to hold the test of time.
My buddy Joyce Owens, of "My Enchanted Paper Creations" created the step-by-step tutorial with written measurements and all for me but she also created a video that is either on youtube or will be soon. Additionally, if you want to create this little mini but don't want to create the structure, Joyce has blank books for sale at a really reasonable price. All you need to do is purchase one, decorate it up and be ready in just a small amount of time.
