Mini Album

This is a mini album I made using a small felt purse I had been given full of gifties at a scrapbooking weekend I attended. It was too cute to toss but too small to do a whole lot with. I unstitched it and using coasters for the inside made this album.

I used miniature scrabble tiles over folded paper to make the title. The butterfly is made using Lutradur and I stamped it with StazOn ink and colored it in with Perfect Pearls. I distressed the acrylic piece with alcohol inks and patterned paper.

I use Tim Holtz film strip ribbon on this page with images I cut out from an old dictionary. I adhered them with CTMH Liquid Glass.

I put a journalling spot inside the frame which I inked and added dimentional foam to the back of to hold the spot which a picture can be added to and the journalling becomes hidden. I made the lollipop flower out of handmade paper and added stickles around the edges.

I left these pages kind of simple because I loved the texture from the handmade paper and really wanted to showcase that. I folded the ribbon and adhered it behind the paper as a decorative touch and finshed the pages with brads and small flowers with bling in the centers.

I added a trim piece with a decorative edge from my Fiskars punch and distressed it with ink. I added two journalling spot with room on the back sides for two more pictures. There are two pull out tags for more pictures as well as two paper clips with flowers on them.
Thanks for looking,
