Scarface Mini Album - Berry71Bleu

Handmade Scarface Mini Album by Dana Tatar for Berry71Bleu

Hi! I'm super excited to share the favorite movie mini album I created for the Berry71Bleu June Favorite Movie/TV Show Challenge. Scarface is my favorite movie and I had a blast putting this album together. Kay is the challenge host this month, and in addition to the favorite movie theme, she challenged us to use more than one photo on our project. This was not a hard task for me because one photo of Al Pacino is never enough! The orange embellishments on the cover came in my Gauche Alchemy Lady Marmalade Color Kit. If you're looking for a fun mix of embellishments in your favorite accent color, these kits are super fun and packed with unique items.

I'm sharing most of the pages of this album today. I included several of my favorite movie quotes, and those of you who have seen this film know, many of the lines from this movie are not suitable for all audiences. To protect the innocent and to not associate the generous sponsors with excessive swearing and questionable subject matter, I'm keeping the more objectionable pages to myself. :)

I used the vintage newpaper from a Gauche Alchemy Themed Kit for the pages of this album. I lined the borders of each page with washi tape to reinforce the delicate pages. I also used washi tape to bind the pages of this album together. I used a Gauche Alchemy Lady Marmalade Color Kit to embellish the pages.

I used the Scrapiniec Good Times Speech Bubbles on several pages of this album as well as the front cover. The sayings are so fun! I used the Gauche Alchemy Punchinella Variety Pack to add some glamor to this page.

I also used sheets of punchinella as masks with orange ink to add a colored pattern over the newsprint album pages. The Solid Color Wheel stamp I used under the top photo is from Viva Las VegaStamps!

Several words on the newsprint pages were perfect for the theme of this album. I highlighted several of those words with a black Sharpie and an orange highlighter. The Viva Las VegaStamps! Small Geo Tag Stamp was a fun way to add another shape to my pages.

Gauche Alchemy is for those that create outside of the box, those that create inside of the box and those that tear the box a new one…

Discover the secret that every great altered artist, scrapbooker, cardmaker, memory-keeper and mixed media artist knows. Whether you are new to the process or have already discovered the joy and flexibility inherent in a varied stash of inspiring supplies, Gauche Alchemy is here to feed your art and soul – a friendly push from your personal muse!

Gauche Alchemy specializes in kits filled to the brim with fabulous finds and artistic goodness. If your addiction is vintage ephemera, found objects, beautiful fabric, trendy paper or unique embellishments, we’re here to enable you – oh yeah! Our kits are designed to make you laugh, question social convention and remind us of our past (the good, the bad, the whimsical – even the downright kitschy).

Each kit is designed to jostle your creativity with unique tidbits, coordinated colors and delicious textures. If you are unaccustomed to working with our unique offerings, GOOD! Our goal is to encourage different ways of thinking about the art that is all around us. We are big fans of "upcycling" and hope to encourage others to join us on our path to "recycle, reuse, repurpose!"

We are a team of creative women who cannot image their world without paper, glue and the creative process. Scrapbooking is our passion and we love to share our passion with other scrapbookers. For this reason, 7 Dots Studio exists. The quality of our products is our top priority. Our collections are made from thick (250gsm), acid-free, lignin-free, archival scrapbooking paper. We also offer high quality cardstock stickers.

Kay's Kreative Korner was opened in 2009. It began simply as a way of sharing a few of my handmade items. I opened my shop with a couple of hand stamped cards, butterflies & a few pre-made scrapbook pages. Within a year, I stopped making cards and decided to concentrate on specific embellishments--I went with the butterfly. I've always admired the butterfly & what it symbolizes. Change, transformation, a new start, beginnings...with this concept I started making scrapbook embellishments based on existing butterflies from all around the world as well as butterflies that I have designed myself. Each butterfly is hand cut & carefully assembled by me.

Within a few months I started to add transparent 'Glass' butterflies which are clear in nature but add a very bold & unique touch to any crafty project. My latest creations are the 'Rose' butterfly collection which are butterflies with roses on their wings & the 'Message on Wings' butterfly collection with sentiments printed on their wings that can be personalized.

In addition to the butterflies I specialize in vines & beaded flowers. Each item is handmade with much TLC and careful precision. My greatest reward is seeing how others use my embellishments on their own projects & pages or to decorate a special occasion.
