We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic collection is a versatile collection full of  goodies.  The layered chipboard pieces, buttons, brads, embossed stickers and crochet flowers add the perfect touch to your projects.

In working with this collection, I gave myself a challenge. . . my parents just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary, to commemorate the event, I wanted to make a photo album.  Antique Chic matched the event perfectly (not only because my parents are antiques).

My plan:

  1. get my 7 brothers and sisters to contribute a page, but I knew that would never happen
  2. make all eight pages  and just get photos from the siblings (still hasn’t happened)
  3. use the Amber Sketches to save time, and see if I could make all eight pages with the same kit, and see how long it would take me

To my surprise I was able to make all eight base pages in about an hour and a half…then I went back and added the embellishments.

I even had enough left over to create a few cards:

I was thrilled to be able to use just about every stitch of this collection kit for this project. That  feels good, although I may need to get another kit for my stash!
