Not-so-Mini Album - Finished

Wanted to share with you the almost finished album. I want to wait to add embellishments until I figure what photos will be in this album. This album was a lot of fun to make and super easy. Will be making more of these type albums. Margaret

12 Tags of 2012 - May

This is my version of Tim Holtz May tag for his 12 Tags of 2012.

The tag was cut using the Tim Holtz Alterations "Tag & Bookplates" die.  I used some Mulberry paper to cover the tag, first I crumbled the paper then inked it with distressed ink. The thread spool is from his "Sewing Room" die, I cut three from chipboard and applied foam squares in between each layer them wrapped it with Hemp.  Hot glued some silk flowers on it.  I stamped the dress form and the ruler from The Girls Paperie "Paper Girl".  The charm was made using the Epiphany Crafts round charm setting.

Thank You Card

We lost my Mother-in-law a little over a week ago and I wanted to make some special Thank You cards to send out.  Her favorite color was blue so I made them blue in her honor.

Prom 2012 #1

This is another 2 page layout that I made for my GN. For her prom she wore red and black.  I wanted to have a place for a large photo and also plenty of places for smaller photos.

The first page has a 5x7 mat and a place to put the names of her and her date.  I used the Martha Stewart Punch-around-the -page border punch "Swirling Lace".   The butterflies were cut using another Martha Stewart punch " Monarch Butterfly".  The roses were made using the Tim Holtz die " Tattered Pinecone" and the leaves were cut using his Alterations die "Mini Branch & Leaf Set".  The small white roses are the $1 ones from Michaels.  The letters were cut using the Cricut and the "Plantin Schoolbook" cartridge.

I added black rhinestones to this page.  The letters and butterflies were cut out with glittered cardstock.  I used a metallic marker to make the butterfly trail.  I also added black "Bead in a Bottle" behind the butterfly wings to make them stand out.

I Love School Mini Album

This is a mini album that I made using 9X12 envelopes.  I used Cathy Orta's "Hidden Hinge Binding".  I have found that this binding works great with the albums that I like to make.  This album measures about a 9 1/2" square.
