Guest Designer: Clearsnap

Hello friends!  If you're here for the sweet little train giveaway, please scroll down.  I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Clearsnap for November!  I created a "Thankful Album".  I just love the fluid chalk inkpads and the ever so sparkly glitter!

Here's how to create the album:Start with a variety of shapes and sizes of chipboard. Lay the shape on the desired print and trace around the shape. Cover the front of each of the piece with Forever Fall Collection. Cover the back with a solid. Ink the front and back with Fluid Chalk, Autumn Pastels.After all the pages have been covered, lay them out and decide on the layout of the album. For the back page on mine, I glued two shapes together so I would have a higher back page.Once you’ve decided on the layout of the album, using the Bind-It-All, punch the sides. Bind with 1” O-Wires. Decorate inner pages with Design Adhesives and glitter. Add ribbon and trim as desired. Hot glue the Autumn Spray and glittered branches in place.

Oooh, how eye catching, Jan! Love the rich earth tones of the papers you used and love the glittered branches. Having the different shaped pages is such a great visual detail, too.
