a mini album


Hi everyone …   hope this finds you all safe and well.

Today I am sharing a mini Album / Binder with you .. 

click to go to the 49andmarket Blog 

A closie of the front cover . 

How utterly stunning are these chipboard stickers .. 

I decided to create a simple design for the cover and am very pleased with the result .

My first page of the journal/album

T be honest I found this album quite challenging . Generally I love to create albums but in the beginning I kept changing my mind on which papers to use.. As soon as I made a decision to combine a few different collections from Vintage artistry including VA Essentials , the album began to flow and all came together nicely. Sometimes that is all it takes ,making a decision and going for it … scrapbooking is all about fun and creating …

I mainly used Vintage artistry essentials collection throughout the journal, and added a few other pages from the VA Everyday collection . 

I created little pockets holding tags and quotes .. the chipboard stickers are so beautiful, so I used them throughout the book . AND those square file frame sets, well they are just a dream come true .. so many ways to use them, combined with chipboard, transfers, rub ons   stamps, etc.

I created a pocket with the kraft pages to hold spare photographs .

The laser cut leaves are just perfect . I pretty much used them with all my collage pages so glorious and delightful . I have added butterflies , large and small throughout my book . They add the perfect finish to many of the pages .

The vintage artistry collections are fabulous to combine together, creating the perfect combination of colors, shapes and textures . 

Hope you enjoy this album .. I had fun creating it especially all the little pockets and the collage pages full of laser cut images ..
