Have you seen this super fun mixed media album from Basically Bare? I’ve primarily used this album for custom orders, but I do have a handful in stock for my crafty chicks out there.
Here are the details: This Basically Bare alterable album is perfect for paper artisans looking for a unique “bare” album to get started. This album measures 4×9 and is spiral bound. This mini album includes 10 pages of different paper items.
Page 1: Chipboard
Page 2: Cardboard (one side is bright white)
Page 3: Kraft Envelope
Page 4: Acylic (with a fun tab)
Page 5: Canvas
Page 6 & 7: (2) Mini Kraft Paper Envelopes
Page 8: Cardboard (one side is bright white, also includes a fun tab)
Page 9: Chipboard
It’s definitely my new favorite mixed media album. Super high quality!! It is just $9 and can be purchased on our online shop.
I have a few upcoming blog posts including a tutorial on this mixed media album coming soon. Stay tuned!

To get you in the holiday spirit, check out these adorable puppies!!!!! When we were in Ridgecrest visiting Jeremy’s family over Thanksgiving, we were so lucky to be around for a puppy Christmas photo shoot! Jeremy’s family breeds these super cute pups. They are only a few weeks old… and, adorable. Did I say adorable? Yes, beyond adorable!! I wanted to steal one!
After they were such great little models, they got lunch. How cute!!!!

More wedding love on the blog today! Part 2 of Jennifer’s beautiful basic wedding album. This project was such a blast. I hope Jennifer loves it as much as I did putting it together. This girl’s family and friends look like SO much fun… even grandma is dancing the night away in the photo below! Love it. Thanks so much for giving the a glimpse into such a special day! Congratulations!

I’ve been so busy getting albums delivered before the holidays, but I couldn’t resist to take a quick minute and post the snapshots of this adorable basic album - I broke it up into two posts to save some goodies for tomorrow. Here are the pages highlighting the pre-wedding festivities – bridal shower, bachelorette party and rehearsal dinner. I’ll save the wedding photos for tomorrow.
This album was so much fun to put together. The photos were great and just screamed FUN! These girls know how to have a good time! Stay tuned for more photos tomorrow!

This has been a pretty busy holiday season for us girls at Embellish. I’ve been so fortunate to have a team of three fabulous interns working with me since May! They have helped with updating our Etsy shop, launching our Embellish shop, updating our Embellish website, launching our DIY Kits & Projects, researching and signing us up for local events and street fairs, launching our Twitter account, updating our Facebook page, conducting a survey on new products, and so much more! Best of all, we’ve all become really great friends!
Carla and Yvonne are both planning to continue their internship with Embellish in 2012 as time allows. They are both fulltime students, super involved with school and have other jobs and internships, as well. Ariel’s official last day with Embellish was yesterday. She’s now finishing up her last few months at UC San Diego focusing on classes (she just added a minor!), extracurricular activities and planning on studying aboard in the fall. Lucky duck! Here’s an adorable photo of Ariel at a holiday event last week. Ariel has been such a sweetie to have on our team. I’m really excited for her next adventure! Thank you for all your hard work with Embellish, Ariel! We will miss you!
PS – If you didn’t see on Facebook or Twitter, we are offering 10% off through the weekend on the Etsy shop with promo code: holiday2011. Enjoy!
