Simple DIY Home Decor with Gelatos® Colors and Texture Luxe™


 Hi everyone! Carisa back with you today for my final project as part of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Fall/Winter Guest Design Team. I have had the best time these past couple months and the rest of the team has been phenomenal to work with. I'm lucky that I got to meet a couple of people at their booth last month at CHA and I'm so glad I did!! I've had this heavy chipboard letter Z hanging around my house forever - I thought it was time to add a little color to it and make it pretty! For today's post I'm featuring Texture Luxe™ on my home decor piece as the perfect accent.

Although this mini album is constructed in the same way as the Christmas Album there are differences in the page construction to create all the pockets you will need to make to store your stencils.  You can adapt the pocket and album sizes given below to suit other stencils you may have in your collection.
