Suzie's mini album...

 Hi! Ok so this album I'm just calling it Suzie's mini since that is who I made it for. However, I learned how to make this mini following Ginger's tutorial at My Sisters Scrapper. You can follow the tutorial yourself starting at this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqcgJZKKLVk I'm sorry but I can not remember what the name of the paper pad is that I used here on this mini. If the name of it comes to me then I will add an update at the bottom of this post. The birdcage and bird are cut on my Big Shot with Tim Holtz die with chipboard I also used I am roses flowers.
 I filled the birdcage with teeny tiny seed beads and then covered those with crackle accents. I used Stickles on the bird and wing and then added some hanging beads at the bottom.
 The pennant I cut out of the paper line (that I can't remember the name of...sorry again about that)
 The teal ribbon came from Hobby Lobby and the white ribbon is from Tim Holtz. The flat backed pearls are from....??? I have no idea where it came from. I get things from so many different places and WISH that I could remember where I got the flat backed pearls from because I am out and need some but only buy when I find a really good price. So if any of you know where I can find some that are priced well please let me know.

 I used one of Martha Stewart's corner punches on all of the flip out pages.

 By the way. This is a paper bag mini album and you can see one of the tags sticking out in the above picture where my fingers are. I forgot to take pictures showing that.

 The very last page has a waterfall page on it that I absolutely love. I'm so thankful that Ginger taught me how to make these because I want to make more!
 The above picture is out of order because its the back view of the mini.

The last 2 pictures are out of order as well. They are actually of the first page in the album.
I hope that you enjoyed seeing the pictures of the album. If you would like to make one yourself please go to Ginger's tutorial and give it a whirl. She's awesome and has several really good tutorials that are easy to follow. Have a great day everyone!

Now and Then mini album...

 Hi everyone! Here is a little mini that I did back in July and never posted. I'm calling it Now and Then mini because I used Teresa Collins Now and Then paper pad. I also used some things by Tim Holtz, K and Company, I am roses, Martha Stewart and I believe that's it...I'll let you know as you look at the pictures and hopefully I want forget who made what. The front cover has Tim Holtz grungeboard for the clasp and the backing where the key is. That key by the way is by K and Co. and the roses are by I am roses. The butterflies and the doily trim was punched using Martha Stewart punches and the trim was some that I found 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby. The bling is from Michael's and I believe it was Recollections.

 The clock...I used crackle accents on after I inked the edges well to give it a really old look.

 The metal butterfly above is one I bought from Butter B Scraps. I love their metal embellishments by the way.

Thanks for stopping by everyone. I hope that you all are having a great day. I have more to post. It seems that I'm doing things sporadically on my blog....and I am and I apologize but I have a lot of things going on and it just isn't physically possible for me to post daily right but I will try to post at least once a week.
More to come! :)
