Scraps of Darkness Beloved Kit




Rolling in the New Year with my first Scraps of Darkness project from the January Kit titled "Beloved"... and what a perfect name for it if I do say so. Although I could call each and every kit this because they are all beloved to me. A box full of jewels delivered to your door each and every month if you are a kit club member.

You can find that subscribe button for the kits right -------- HERE

And a link to the Beloved Kit -------- HERE ----- they sell out pretty quickly so becoming a member is really your best bet!

Once I set eyes upon the Mon Amour Papers from Graphic 45 I knew a mini album would be perfect to show off these beautiful papers.

I used "True Love" as my background layer for the front and back covers. You may find the kit has sold out but there are still some of these Graphic 45 papers from the add ons left. You can find the papers I used ------- HERE
I also used the Mon Amour Chipboard and BoBunny Foil Transfer Rub Ons and there are still some of those left from the Elements Add On which you can find -------  HERE
The florals were in the Creativity ------- HERE ( Prima Something Blue- Best Man) and Prima Esperanza found ---- HERE and in the Floral Add On

I got this idea on how to close up this mini album from my friend Lisa Gregory. I used 2 clips and tied the bow to them. Now there is no need to untie the bow just unclip to view the inside of the album. Genius! Thanks Lisa!


A little close up of the cover using the foil rub ons in the background. They go on like a dream and were in the Elements Add On. There are still some left if you hurry you can grab one. 

I used a mini album I had on hand and covered it all in the papers. I like to use something special on my edges so I chose Lumiere Paints in a gold and blue tone to paint all my edges and make splatter on each page.

I also enjoy using Spellbinders Dies for my photos mats and layers. This one is Romantic Rectangles.

I added the rub ons to the background on some of the pages and used the  Graphic 45 Card Stock stickers --- we have some of those in the STORE ------- HERE.  Although you may miss out on kits you don't have to miss out on some of the products or similar ones as we have a full on line store to meet your needs!

I created several pages with pockets. The "Forever Mine" and "One and Only" sheets are perfect for photo mats or tags to tuck in your minis. I rounded off the corners with a punch and backed with a gray cardstock. I used the card stock from the add on and you can find some still left in the store ------ HERE.

I topped off each of the tags with a little gem from the BoBunny Double Dot Tuxedo Jewels. Those were in the Main Kit this month.

An extra special touch to the little pockets were added with punching. Got to love those punches!

I like to die cut the journal cards and graphics on the pattern paper sheets to make them extra special.

Here is a little view from the top. This would make a great wedding gift or shower gift for someone!

I fussy cut the image of the lady from the Mon Amour pattern paper and added those rosettes from my stash.

This is a peek at the back of the album. Covered in the same paper as the front with BoBunny rub ons for the dots. I love those rub ons!

Finally a side view of the various ribbons I added to the rings. This mini is pretty thick and holds plenty of room for cherished photos and journaled memories.
