We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic collection is a versatile collection full of goodies. The layered chipboard pieces, buttons, brads, embossed stickers and crochet flowers add the perfect touch to your projects.
In working with this collection, I gave myself a challenge. . . my parents just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary, to commemorate the event, I wanted to make a photo album. Antique Chic matched the event perfectly (not only because my parents are antiques).
- get my 7 brothers and sisters to contribute a page, but I knew that would never happen
- make all eight pages and just get photos from the siblings (still hasn't happened)
- use the Amber Sketches to save time, and see if I could make all eight pages with the same kit, and see how long it would take me
To my surprise I was able to make all eight base pages in about an hour and a half...then I went back and added the embellishments.
Here is each page with the corresponding sketch:
I even had enough left over to create a few cards:
I was thrilled to be able to use just about every stitch of this collection kit for this project. That feels good, although I may need to get another kit for my stash!
Make sure to check back on Monday for a Simple project.
