Our hostess at BBTB2 this week is Susan, and in honor of National Barbershop Quarter Day, she asked us to create a musical project or card. Hop on over to Bitten By the Bug 2 and link up your favorite project using any Cricut cuts representing music.
I made this 'scrapbook' from an old record album I got at Goodwill for $3. All the records inside were broken so out they went. When our scrapbook club goes on our retreat, we draw names ahead of time and create a handmade item. The person I was to create for is a hard working administrator by day and singer and musician by night. She has made a few CDs and I love listening to her croon. She loves jazz and the blues so I tried to incorporate that into my creation. The cover turned out really nice, and the pages inside, although they turned out different than first envisioned, represent her singing style. I really enjoyed making this album and putting a little of myself into something for someone else. The roses were made from the Flower Shoppe cartridge. The keyboard, microphone, and guitar are all from Quarter Note. I added bling of toile, ribbon, paper flowers, feathers, and rhinestones. The bottom right side in red is part of the original front cover - I just couldn't cover that up!
I created photo mats, tags, and embellishments using G45 papers - these were perfect for the vintage look. I cut the paper where the hole for the center of the record goes. She can fill the 'pockets' with trinkets - programs, ticket stubs, and photos of the venues she visits.
