LOC VIntage Album

I don't know about you, but I have so many projects that I have started and am slowly working on but as yet are not finished - today I thought I would show you one of them - it is one of my favourite projects to make - any guesses what it is.....

.....as the title of this posts tells you it is an Album - in this case a Paper Bag Album - I fell in love with theses albums when I created one for my Mum for Mother's Day - you can see it here. This one started our as a Christmas one, using some retired DP from Stampin' Up, but I decided to make it general...

I used the Layers of Color Nature Walk art stamp set to create the gorgeous layered flower.  I have added this to a large Prima flower and love the effect - IRL it is very LUSH!  this has been attached with a brad to some cardstock that has been inked before being embossed with Stampin' Ups gorgeous Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then cut with Spellbinders Labels 1.

The bound edge has been created using large brads, I then threaded through some ribbon and gold cord, creating a bow and adding a button to tie it through - this is very secure and keeps that romantic feel.

One this page I have used an image from the Touch of Elegance art stamp set - these are so versatile

It is cut out with a SU Circle Punch and has a smaller image layered onto it with a gem added - it is amazing what a difference these small touches make.

I have used another image from the Touch of Elegance art stamp set.  The punches on this page are from Stampin' Up - thanks to my friend Ann for being so available to my constant...'Ann, can I borrow......'

The SU Scalloped Square works perfectly with this image and adds a 'touch of elegance!'

I still have quite a few pages in the 'being created process' and will show them to you when they are completed!

These pages are for the following challenges:
Gingerloft - Distressing
Southern Girls - Anything Goes
