Vintage Mini Album

Rosie received her album today and now I get to share full pictures with you. :)

The bulk of the patterned paper and all of the die cuts I used are from Tim Coffey's Blossomwood line by K & Company. The base pieces are from two different chipboard books that I bought from the Michaels $1 bins last fall.

I used a Tim Holtz D ring to bind it with charms by Lost & Found. The metal/epoxy frame under the bird is from Making Memories.

LEFT: I cut a border strip down to use as a tucking spot for the tags. I added some of the glittered epoxy stickers for a little extra.

RIGHT: I used double-sided paper from We R Memory Keepers for Rosie to journal on. The accent on the top left is a magnetic bookmark called a "foldover" from The Remnants Collection by Nostalgiques Collection/EK Success that I added a little butterfly to. The flower on the bottom right is cut out, inked and pop-dotted.

LEFT: The "foldover" from the previous page that has another butterfly attached. I used the "notebook" paper from We R Memory Keepers ... a picture on one side and journaling on the other.

RIGHT: I used some lace trim from Spare Parts by Paper Studio to create a frame around the mat.

LEFT: I accordian folded a piece of the "notebook" paper for pictures on one side and journaling on the other. It tucks under the "foldover" and popped flower.

RIGHT: The paper slips right out for access to the picture and journaling.

LEFT: I layered some glittered epoxy stickers and die cuts alongside the mat.

RIGHT: I tied some lace trim from Spare Parts by Paper Studio to the side for the little book to tuck into and added the little butterfly brads (I don't know what company these are from).

LEFT: The trim is from the other side with another metal/epoxy frame from Making Memories.

RIGHT: I tied more lace trim from Spare Parts by Paper Studio and added some word stick pins from Craft Essentials by Joann Fabrics. I added a Tim Holtz swivel clasp to the tags and D ring so they wouldn't get lost.

LEFT: The mini book is a meander book that I thought was too chunky. I decided to cut it into two mini books.

RIGHT: See ... can't lose the tags. LOL

LEFT: The trim is from the other side and I tucked another word stick pin from Craft Essentials by Joann Fabrics into it.

RIGHT: I pop-dotted the top part of the robin so that it had a little added dimension.

LEFT: I layered the die cut flowers right along the mat and pop-dotted the little bees.

RIGHT: This metal/ribbon accent is one of the newer embellishments from Making Memories. When I saw it at Michaels I knew it had to have a place in Rosie's mini.

LEFT: This is the other part of the meander book that I cut apart.

RIGHT: I folded a piece of the "notebook" paper in half and tucked it under the embellishment making more room for pictures and journaling.
