Vintage album gift

Hi there, check out this vintage album I made up using the K & Co Paper line. I inked all the edges using Vintage photo from Tim Holtz’s distress inks. I love the colours in this paper line. I added a lot of Tim Holtz stamps, flowers, brads, pull outs, ribbons, and so much more in this album. It is made from paper bags. I love the binding as I used fibre trim to close up the album. For the cover I made an envelope and filled it full of flowers, stickers, buttons, feathers, and a few other things.

I will be giving this album as a gift to someone very special who has helped raise my child’s service dog!
