Oh I just stumbled upon your blog looking for ideas to make a mini acrylic album for my hubby's grammies baptism... and your blog is absolutely smashing!! I LOVE IT!!!!!

Can I ask you a quick question... how do you adhere the pictures without the adhesive showing.. are there tricks....??

Saving your blog and linking it..if it's ok??

ok. you can use vellum tape, that works ok. I hear spray adhesive works well too.
strategically placing flowers and other embellishments is a good idea.
I used some glossy accents and some creative placement of flowers on one of my albums and that worked ok too. I dabbed tiny little dots in the corners and in areas where the stamping would hide it.
Im still experimenting myself but i will let you know if i come across anything else that works
