Virtual Cybercrop Art Journal for Kylie, by Amanda Hartmann

Hi Scrapping Clearly community,

After our epic virtual Cybercrop, I created this album. I made it for Kylie. I hope she receives it in the mail this week!

It started with the awesome circle Acrylic album: - The clear acrylic albums were one of the reasons Kylie started her business and indeed why the shop is called "Scrapping Clearly".

Now, I made this all in such a flurry - I don't always remember what I used - LOL. After each page I will try to list some of the materials. However - I was inspired by so many of the techniques and products that were demonstrated during the Virtual Cybercrop Live videos.

Let's take a look:

Front cover
Used a square of felt, and stitching with a doily, tissue paper and old crossword paper.

That is it! If you see a product you really liked (or NEED), then let me know and I can find it in store for you!

Thanks so much for looking.
