Mini Album

Hello everyone. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. 

Today I want to share with you a mini album I created using the very talented Mariana's Tutorial. Thank you so very much Mariana. When I saw her mini album I knew I wanted to make one right away so I had asked her if she would mind making a tutorial as well as a few other people, she was such a sweetheart and made one a few days later. You can find her tutorial here.

I would also like to send a huge thank you to Tamara @ For the wonderful papers used in this mini.

I am so very happy with how this came out. I hope you all like it as much as I do.

Toilet paper roll Mini

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe weekend. 
Today I would like to share with you a toilet paper roll mini that I made for my friend for her birthday. This is my first one I have made and I didn't realize how challenging it would be to create something so small. But I had a lot of fun making it and loved the way it turned out. 

For this mini I used the Bo Bunny "Enchanted" collection. The I love you stamp is from Studio G and I added glossy accents to the top of it. I added stickles to the design around the sentiment and glued some Bling trim that I purchased at micheals to the top and bottom of the mini. The Bow was purchased in a 12 pack at Walmart and the roses are from Recollections. I embellished the binding ring with Black and white tulle and created a little dangle charm.

The ticket gives a space for a photo and there is a place for journaling on the back. I used a Tim Holtz grungeboard flourish. I colored the flourish with black distress ink and added silver rub n buff  lightly to the top. The butterfly is a cut from a friend and I added some pearls to it. 

The sentiment under the ticket was a die cut that was from a Color Bok collection. 

The frame was also from a friend of mine and I backed it with a piece of acetate. I then added glossy accent to the top of the frame and embellished it with another little bow. 

This is another die cut that a friend cut for me and I used a leaf punch to punch out 3 silver leaves, distressed the edges with black distress ink,  and added an adorable fabric flower that I had purchased from AC Moore. 

For this page, I created 2 tags with a sizzlet die I have and embellished them both with these gorgeous flower buttons I found at micheals. I used a piece of lace that I had in my stash to make a pocket and added 3 recollections roses to the lace. I lined the bottom of the lace with a pearl trim I purchased from Hobby Lobby on line and colored the pearls with my silver alcohol ink. 

Above is a picture of the page with the 2 tags taken out. 

I used another diecut that my friend had cut for me and cut out a circle with my spellbinders die for a spot for a photo. I again cut out a couple more leaves and added a black prima flower. I also layered an acrylic flower to the top of the prima flower which I altered using the silver alcohol ink. 

For this page, I used a frame that I found @ Because of how delicate the lines were I mod podged down the frame and a photo can be glued to the center of the frame. 

I think this page turned out so beautiful. The black lace is from hobby lobby and I added some of that bling trim from walmart to the center of it. I also added 2 beautiful fabric flowers I found at walmart to the sides of the lace trim. Tucked under the trim is a little accordian folded mini that she can add 7 photos/ journal places total. 

The page flips open to reveal a place for journaling and a spot for another photo. 

I used another diecut and added some bling to the corners. Then cut out another sentiment and popped it up on pop dots. I created the butterfly in the corner out of lace. They are so easy and so much fun to make.   (They are also small enough to use on a card. )

For the last page I cut out 2 stamp frames using a sizzlet die I have had for years and never used. I then embellished with silver leaves that i punched out and added 3 recollection roses. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a blessed week.
