Vintage & Elegant

Today's "Album"

Hey everyone. Well I made up this little mini album card. I love this paper line documented. I can't seem to get enough. I think Michaels bought the line and they have the same paper, so looks like I will be able to get more of it! But simple stories was the one who first created it. So to start I took a strip of polka dots and sewed it to the mat. I then adhered it to the card base. I stuck some Tim Holtz paper on and then layered it with this envelope. I used some of the documented paper to mat it up. I lastly added some bling, a button, a couple of metal elements, and this wonderful fibre for the tag.

For the inside, I used these beautiful dies by Spellbinders to create this mat that I popped up with pop dots. For the mat in behind, again I did my sewing. I think it adds so much. Lastly I added some bling. For the 1/2 page beside, I stamped a Tim Holtz stamp and added a few bling.

I made this little pocket for this tag and again used some of the documented line to finish this up. A "enjoy" sticker from Facades line and some bling. I wanted to keep the last page simple so I just threw in a couple of Tim Holtz paper squares, a paper clip, a lock, and this wonderful metal element. Ok maybe it wasn't so simple, but I like it!!!

Lastly you can see the pull out tag coming from the side of the card. I kept it simple so someone could add a picture!
