DT - Distressing Challenge

Today's "DT Post Card"

For this weeks challenge is a distressing!!!!

Hey everyone.  I just love vintage albums and distressing.  I made this wonderful album using a variety of papers from my stash.  I love making little vintage albums like these.  They are so cute and people really enjoy them!

I love all the black and white accents and you can do this as well in brown and cream.  I make a few pockets.  There is an option to close up the inside flap to not be a pocket as well.

The gold elements are awesome.  I used a EK punch to punch along the long pocket to add some nice details!  The butterfly die is from Simon Says Stamp, just love these butterfly dies.  The little black paper clip is from MFT!  Love that set.  Lastly I added 3 bling to the corner to finish it off!  Check out below my video tutorial on how to make the base for this style album!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!

  2. Oh, wow! Another remarkable creation! I am so impressed with how much detail you have put into your album. The patterns you've combined go so nicely together and I love the little pops of color here and there. This makes me excited to travel and excited for the holidays. This must've taken a lot of time to do, but the end result really is stunning! Thank you once again for sharing your work with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
