We have one of those eclectic faux fireplaces in our living room. The fireplace is one of my favorite parts of our new house, but the mantel has been bare for a while now. We have a large picture hanging above the mantel and two candlesticks off to one side, but the other side needed a little decor. So when I saw this vertical album from Glue Art & Paper Studio I knew exactly where it was going! This is a 12×12 vertical album, but they also have 6×6 and 8×8. We had some leftover black spraypaint from another home decor project so I spraypainted the frame black. I used one of my favorite wedding pictures as the focal point. The patterned paper is Wild Asparagus by My Mind’s Eye. I embellished the page with some May Arts black gauze ribbon and organdy polka dot ribbon along with a few charms and rhinestones. The red cardstock layer is stamped with a swirl from The Angel Company. I inserted the page into a Making Memories 12×12 page protector and hung it from the rod with binder clips. The vertical albums come with binder clips, but the page protectors are not included. I like how this turned out and I think it’s classic enough to be a decor piece in our living room for a long time. If you want to purchase a vertical album for yourself, check out Doodliedoo! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I have some exciting news to share and a little project that I need your help on tomorrow so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by today!
