Inside the DOG HOUSE with Want2Scrap©

What goes on inside of the Dog House -
should be SEEN!

That's why I'm BACK with this fun project! A
while back, I shared with you how to jazz up the
OUTSIDE of the old Dog House, but now I'm
back to share what goes on INSIDE!

Dog lover or not, it's hard not to be smitten by this
intricately shaped Want2Scrap© chipboard album.
{Isn't it ADORABLE!}

On the inside, there is endless possibility to showcase
pictures, memorabilia and darling memories.
I'm excited to share with you, some of my
solutions to embellish photos and really have
fun with the shape of this album. I chose dog
photos, of course, but it dawns on me
that this would make a super fun collection
for Halloween photos, or a great play on
"being in the dog house!" {I'm pretty sure my
husband could qualify for such a
photo montage, but I digress....}

"WHAZ UP?" Alert and ready for love...
A playful explosion of Eco Green Craft's
acrylic paint behind a carefully silhouetted
photograph does this pup proud. Love,
love, love the serpentine accent to the roof
line, compliments of some stunning bling
strips of black rhinestone and white pearl.
Makes me think, Snoopy, himself, would be
proud to dwell in this finely decorated house!

Exactly, Mr. Shultz -
Warm puppies make EVERYONE happy!

And look HOW fun and easy it is to take these large bling
nuggets from the 72 Count, Self-adhesive, Silver Rhinestone
collection, and turn them into adorable paw prints....

Did ya see what I did there?
Just added "toes" with some silver
baby bling rhinestones! How cute
would THOSE prints be on your
kitchen floor!?! Well, maybe it's
best they stay in the album, for now...

What ELSE is in the album? HOW about
a bunch more unforgettable photos of my
pups? Check out WHERE they hide...

For tips on how I add these, super useful, hidden
photos, check out this post here! There are SO many
ways to fill the pages of Want2Scrap's© amazing
albums. We feature SO many different designs
and SO many ways to create stunning accents...

Finesse Swirls are STILL my favorite, customizable,
go-to bling accents. You can cut and re-assemble
them to bring illumination and impact to nearly
any corner of an album, card or project! To the
lower right corner of my dog's photo, I pieced this
accent together to balance out this fun layout!

And with this composition, the tiniest ring of Nestabling™
petite scalloped circle invites the album viewer to
pop open this flap to enjoy MORE hidden photos!

I shudder to think you might miss a shot of
my furry companions - this album is FULL
of adorableness!

I even created an extra page for journaling!

Just follow these steps for "adventure journaling!"

Trace a page of Want2Scrap's© chipboard album
of your choosing. Hand write the journaling,
on a scratch piece of light weight paper.
Re-write the journaling in computer program,
using a font size close to your handwritten version.
The top, right corner shows how I placed a chipboard
page on an 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock, to interpret

Print out a sample on computer paper, before printing
directly to chipboard. For my purpose, I printed two
sheets, with a second page of journaling for the back
side. I then traced the shape onto the journaled piece,
cut and glued the two, back to back, for a thick page,
suitable to add to the album.

One last page, MORE hidden photos...

{and MINE!} for the keeping!

Thank you, for letting me share my addiction
to ALL THINGS Want2Scrap©, but especially
for our FANTASTIC shaped chipboard albums!
Such the PERFECT place to let your bling do
its THING! Hope you'll get started on one of
these, today!!!
