Artiste in August Day 5 & New Product Blog Hop

Today’s a double header!  2 Blog Hops in 1 Post
It’s the New Product Blog Hop and a continuation of the Artiste in August Blog Hop.
 
If you’re on the Artiste in August Blog Hop hop, you probably came from Gloria's blog If you didn’t, don’t worry, just keep hopping! I have a full list at the bottom of this post.
 

If you’re on the CTMH New Product Blog Hop, you probably came from Adeline’s blog

When you hop to the next post, on your hop, follow the color that you just came from!  I'm after Adeline in one blog hop and before her in another!  LOL.  

Today I grabbed the chipboard album that came with the Artiste Bundle and cut paper to match.  It was a cinch.  Set the dial to 3.75” and cut!  All the album pages were on the Family/Life page of the Handbook on page 60.  I inked all the album edges with cashmere.  It goes on so dark, it’s scary!  But not to worry, once dry it’s much more mellow. 
I also added a pocket from the purse you find on page 41.  I cut it at 1.25” Real Dial Size.  It’s only about 1/8th of an inch deep, just enough to get the burlap strings into the pocket for the posies.  (Yes, I know I cheated and some Art Philosophy flowers are on the front cover)  These burlap strings are from the ribbon that I took apart.  I didn’t mean to take it all the way apart, but at a narrow width under a half inch, it was too messy. 

I updated my main picture to be one that wasn’t take under flash at midnight.  So much prettier under natural light.

I haven’t fully decorated the album yet.  If I had ordered the Clementine compliments this album would go together in a breeze!
