Haunted Estate Paper Bag Mini Album

Hello all!

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!

Baby Girl Lunch Sack Mini Album #2

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!

Little Boy Lunch Sack Mini Album (My Mind’s Eye)

This lunch sack album is themed with the zoo and stars! The paper stack I used was from My Mind’s Eye, The Boy Papers. This stack was given to me by a fellow crafter Kim Duran {Paper Loves Glue} http://aidenmak.blogspot.com/, thank you Kim! The colors are muted and primary. It is embellished with animals, stars, outdoor settings, collage photo mats in the large pockets and much, much more. The base of the album is a rustic red and has seven pockets, baker’s twine, buttons, dimensional stickers, cut out shapes from the Silhouette Cameo machine http://silhouetteamerica.com/silhouetteCameo.aspx, borders from K&Co., trim from Michaels, brads, buttons from Dress It Up Button Co. http://dressitup.com/ and layered flowers from Recollections.

Baby Boy Mini Album

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This lunch sak mini album is made with DCWV paper stack “Baby Boy” which has images of snails, turtles, elephants, birds, frogs, trees with birds, crocodiles and more. The soft pallet is light browns, greens and blues with some yellows. All with many pockets, tags, bling, trim, layering, embellished photo mats, glittered paper in this stack make for a album you can be proud to show off. I used the Martha Stewart picket fence punch, Recollections tag punch for all the small tags and embellishments from Jolee’s Boutique as well as Recollections. My favorite part of this album are the soft tones and colors along with the adorable critters used in the paper stack. I used Antique Linen Distress Ink from Tim Holtz on the entire album.

Prima Card #2

This card was made with Prima’s new paper collection Fairy Belle, I love it!  Making the card was a bit of trial & error for me (I’m not the best making cards), I’m better at the mini album thing. My challenge was I used a glitter pen to get a sparkle effect on the leaves and it was a bit much if you know what I mean… So I ended up using Tim Holtz distress ink to tone the glitter pen down… waaaayyy down and it ended up with this smoky, smudged look. I couldn’t decide if I liked it or not but here it is.

I also used rickrack, Prima printed trim, my liquid pearl pen (new fav toy), Prima Fairy Belle chipboard piece and Paper Trey Inc. card stock nice & thick! The little chair stamp is from Pink Paislee’s  London Market clear stamp collection.
