Acrylic Jar Album

Threw this together the last couple of days... Had a lot of fun doing it..

I have been wanting to make a jar album since I saw a class at Scrappin' It. Unfortunately, the class was at a time I couldn't attend, but I kept the idea in my head. Then, Jessica, a friend from AMR, made one and the idea resurfaced. It took me a little while to find the jar I wanted to use, but once I did, it was easy to make the album.

Naturally, since I wanted to make acrylic pages, I had to modify the album a little - Using a ribbon to connect the pages was not what I wanted to do. I had picked up the tiny rings at Scrappin' It, and they really fit the bill.

Supply list:

Acrylic sheet: Clear Scraps
Jar: Mason
Patterned papers are from the AMR May Kit (LOVE the AMR kits!).
Cardstock: Bazzill.
Ink: StazOn Pumpkin
Stickers: SRM Press (Mother and Mother's Day) and EK Success
Heart bling: Glitz Design
Gems: Joann's
Flowers: Prima
Punches: Marvy Uchida and Creating Keepsakes
Ribbon: Offray, Pebbles Inc
Pens: Sakura Souffle
Rings: Scrappin' It
Tools: Cutterbee scissors, Crop-A-Dile, container template
Adhesives: Zip Dry, foam squares

{The template for the pages was actually a stackable embellishment storage container. Since it fit nicely into the jar, I used it for the template. I traced around the container onto the acrylic page (drawing on the protective coating with a sharpie). Then I cut them out with my Cutterbee scissors.}

That's really beautiful. Love the rings for linking it together, and all the great embellies you put on it. What a great idea to use clear acrylic for some of the little pages, too. I love it!!
