Vintage Baby Album

Hello friends!
I created a mini album this week with a sweet vintage baby theme!

I used paper by October Afternoon from their Ducks In a Row line with lots of flowers and doilies

I also added vintage baby cards from my collection, printed on cardstock.

I loved the light colors of this line and how well in coordinated with the colors of my vintage cards.

The cute little ducks are from the paper line matched so well with the baby theme!

I used a vintage card image on this page to create a pocket page.

The album base is paper bags.
I love making paper bag albums because they are such an easy base for a mini album
 and look great with vintage papers!
I listed this album for sale on ebay.

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Playtime Mini Album

Hello friends!
I've been playing in my paper stash and
 created this paperbag album last week.

I used the Sidewalks line by October Afternoon. I didn't have much embellishments leftover from the line so I hand cut out cute little images of boys and girls from a sheet of one of the patterned papers.

I mixed in paper from October Afternoon's Fly A Kite line, which matched perfectly to have enough to complete my mini book.

The sheet of rose paper was my favorite from the line. They were easy to cut out and look great for any theme!

For all of my photo mats I always ink the edges. I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to give them a nice aged finish.

I used my newst border punch by Jenni Bowlin on this page.
I really love how fun and different it is from all of my lace border punches.


Wishing you happiness, Lindsey

Steampunk Mini Album

Hello friends!
I've had a pack of Steampunk Debutante paper by Graphic 45 in my stash for awhile now and I finally decided to get it out and make a new mini album.

Do you like the steampunk style?
The mix of Victorian beauty and romance with the mechanical fantasy style?

I think it is a fascinating combination!
I loved that this paper line came with so many great Victorian style graphics to cut out for a lovely whimsical style.

I mixed in lots of Tim Holtz metal embellishments, such as this mini key and pearl baubles.

I ran across a cool bag full of antique clock hands at an antique store recently that matched perfectly with the theme of!

The rich colors of this line were also really nice to work with. I don't usually use these colors but I found that it jump started my creativity by working with something so different.

I also found great steampunk style embellishments at Hobby Lobby
from Jolee's embellishments.
This album is for sale here on ebay.

Wishing you a most wonderful day, Lindsey
