Bathing Beauties Mini Album

Hello friends! This is a Bathing Beauties mini album I created as a sample for the Scrapbook store, The Scrap Nook where I work.

This album was created using Graphic 45's On The Boardwalk collection. I used an entire 8 x8 paper pad to create this book.
I tried Tim Holtz Film Strip ribbon for the first time when I created this album and I love it!!! It's clear film ribbon that you can glue or staple on to paper to create this cool look! After I made this book, our entire stock of film strip ribbon sold out and we still can't keep it in stock!

I also tried this great new product called, Mudd Puddles. It's a sand paste that you spread out across your project and when it dries you have this great look!

This album was so much fun to create! I used images from the paper line along with a few vintage postcard images printed from the web.

I am so addicted to Bo Bunny's dot ribbon! I use it on almost every page! Look for it at your LSS, they have a large variety of colors!

I have never been to the beach or have any beach photos to scrap, so I wasn't sure I could easily create with this line, but I loved it! So many cute patterns and the vintage feel is so fun!

I love these old photographs! The older swimsuits looked so cute!

This album is so chunky! I love these Prima Flowers!

I had fun adding lots of little details to the book!

The film strip ribbon looks so neat that I added it without the paper.

Here's the last page of my mini album but that's not where the book ends...

Every page has a pull out on the side or at the top!

This book by Creative Imaginations came in white and I painted it blue.

Thank you for looking at this album!

Have a crafty day, Lindsey

Altered Clipboard

Hello friends!
Today I wanted to share this clipboard I altered using one of my favorite lines! Thrift Shop by October Afternoon!

The hinges are grungeboard covered with Barn Door Distress Ink.

I added a crepe paper rosette to add more dimension.

Thank you for stopping by, Lindsey
