I’m still enjoying this fall/Halloween season with all the paper collections out there right now. I am plugging away at a few more Halloween projects before moving onto Christmas. This particular album was great to make and… I was really impressed with Recollections’ design and style of their patterned paper. I was looking for spoooky and they definitely delivered!
I used some I Am Roses flowers on the cover with a stick pin that I glued a cute little button to. I finished it off with a spooky lady skeleton cameo. On the binding, I used some fun trim and attached a Tim Holtz little glass bottle of black glitter with some bakers twine.
The oval tags inside the album that look spritzed… were. I didn’t care for how “bright white” they looked, so I sprayed them with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The trim on most of all the tags was Martha Stewart (this year’s collection) and used Tim Holtz’s Tiny Attacher. Some additional embellishments are from Jolee’s, Martha Stewart and trim & buttons from my stash. I hope you enjoy!
Pictures say a thousand words, so I’m posting a slide show of my two latest mermaid creations in K&Co.’s Tim Coffey Travel Collection papers. The covers of the albums are made from pages out of DCWV Seasonal stack. I used buttons & trim from my stash as well.

This lush mini album has pearl finished papers from DCWV Luxury Stack, tags from Best Creations ‘Sweet Baby’ collection, tons of embellishments from K& Co., many stylish buttons from Dress It Up Button Co., cut outs from the Silhouette Cameo, I am Roses flowers, collectible buttons, trim from Michaels, my personal stash, Recollections layered flowers, and more! I wasn’t sure about the choice in the paper until I got going with the album then it all fell together in such a classy, rich way. I love the fun result. It’s very girlie and soft. The pictures actually do the album justice! Although there is nothing like holding a finished project in your hands. I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave a comment!
This bright & cheery humming bird album was made using hole punched lunch sacks as the base. I used Colorbok patterened paper, Making Memories metal embellishments along with K& Co., Jolee’s Boutique, Recollections, iamroses flowers, some stick pins, trim from Michaels and stamps from various sets.
The challenge with this album was that I couldn’t find a whole bunch of scrapbook embellishments that were hummingbird themed, considering… I really like the concessions I ended making to achieve the result for Mary (the buyer). :0)
This Mermaid album is full of vintage buttons, distress techniques and styles, rich color schemes, pockets filled with tags and photo mats with enough room for pictures of beach fun! Tim Holtz distress ink, stickles and clip, Creative Imaginations Beach Cottage paper, a collection of different trims, twine and buttons, embellishments complete from K&Co., Jolee’s, Sticko, Recollections, Prima, Martha Stewart, TJ Maxx, Webster’s Pages, Glossy Accents were all used to create this album.
I made album this as a gift for a true mermaid fan.
