Halloween Mini Album

Hello friends!
Since Halloween is coming up soon, I thought I would share with you a new Halloween mini album I recently created.
You may remember I created a Halloween paper bag album already this season, but when I happened upon this super cute paper, I just had to make another album with this line!

The line's called Spooksville, by We R Memory Keepers.
I love the light color palette in this line, especially the soft yummy shade of blue!
It's so fun! This line also has a bit of a retro feel to it.

I pulled out my Martha Stewart Halloween punches and Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die to create a lot of fun paper embellishments!

My album is black chipboard that I cut to make a 6 x 6 inch book,
 then bound using my Cinch book binder.

I also cut green cardstock leaves for my paper flowers using the Storybook cartridge on my Cricut machine.

I've listed this newest album here on ebay.

Have a lovely day, Lindsey

ABC Primer

Hello friends!

Okay, I know you've heard me say it before but this really is my favorite mini album I've ever made!

It was so much fun to put together!
I created this book using Graphic 45's new ABC Primer paper line.

The colors and patterns of this line are so sweet and yummy!
The colors make you dream of cool fall days which are quickly approaching!

This line has so many sweet vintage graphics
 that it was such a joy to work with.

The only downfall to working with Graphic 45 paper is the lack of many embellishments. So I got creative and created paper flowers for many of the pages.

I also used lots of Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks
to add more age to my book. The book measures 6 x 6 and was bound using my handy dandy Cinch book binding machine.

I listed this album here on ebay.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting us today!

Have a lovely day, Lindsey

Halloween Greetings Album

Hello friends!
Last week I pulled out my stash of Halloween supplies and started scraping!

It's always fun to pull out my supplies from years past to see the scraps and leftovers that I can add to the new!
The old rickety style house is a Tim Holtz die that I cut from chipboard and painted with Vintage Photo crackle paint. The white fence is also a Tim die.

If you have never tried paper bag albums I really recommend them. They are fun and easy to complete. I must confess that I don't purchase lunch bags and create the books myself. I found a seller online that sales them pre-folded, stitched and sprayed with Archival mist. Perfect and ready to go!

If you would like to purchase them, they can be found here on ebay.
I buy the 6x6 size, but she does sell others.

To add more details to my pages, I added glitter glue accents around edges and swirls. I use the Martha Stewart glitter glue set that can be found at Michaels.
I also used white and black gel pens to create faux stitch lines around pages to give them a more finished look. 

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey
