Album for Collection: Dolls: Title Page

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 0 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone!
I am currently making a friend (MIL) an album to showcase her collection of rather valuable dolls. These dolls are German made and very expensive! They are called Himstedts, if you are interested in knowing more about them.

I am making her an album and thought that I would share with you all too! I am sure that she doesn't read my blog so I am able to share this process with you. I am hoping that you can maybe give me some more ideas and some feedback on what I already have.

I must say that a lot of my page inspirations have come from creative cricut designs I also subscribe to her videos as well. If you have youtube and enjoy watching scrapbooking videos, Jennifer creates beautiful pages using her Cricut Expression and Imagine! I highly recommend her videos for inspiration.

With this album, as they are dolls and they get dressed up, I am using a lot of the images from Forever Young. I find that the little icons like the lipstick and shoes go great with what I am trying to create. I also have used DoodleCharms, A Child's Year and Create a Critter as well as the font from Plantin Schoolbook.  I am trying to utilize all my cartridges to really get my value out of them! I do wish that I had paper doll dress up, I think it would really come in handy right now.

For the title page I used a paper from DCWV once upon a time stack. It is the once upon a time paper too. I thought that it would add a little bit of a fairy tale quality to the album without being too much.

I cut the monogram from A Child's Year at 3 3/4 and the letters at 3 1/4.
From forever young, I cut the girl at 7 3/4, the lipstick at 1 3/4 and the nail polish at 1 1/2.

For added touches I went around the monogram with a purple marker and the letters with a white gel pen to set them apart from the model's legs.

Hope that this inspires you to create something that is a little different for an album!
