The great thing about using kits to create albums and layouts is you open the box the mail man/lady delivered right to your door and everything is right there for you. You don't have to spend an hour digging through your stash to find and coordinate paper and embellishments.
To create this album, I pulled out my most favorite items from the kit. There's always a fun variety of ribbon and trim in each and every Little Black Dress kit. I used the black and white chevron looking trim to "tie" my album closed. The front was embellished with polka dotted tulle and buttons. Don't you just love all that texture?!
I made this album for my son and included the most recent pictures I have of us. I took the black and white striped paper by Crate Paper and splattered some mist. The diagonal stripe creates such a fun guideline for my journaling, and I think the My Mind's Eye phrase stickers are a perfect fit.
I hope you're inspired to make your own.
Thank you Little Black Dress!!
