G45 envelope mini

Hi everybody,
Ok so I had to to have a go at an envelope mini book and what could be better than a graphic 45 envelope mini book!? the papers I used are basic greys cappella line, enjoy!! I didnt make this for anyone in particular-just for fun :) thanks for visiting,

 For the closure the book has just a tie closure so i added a Tim Holtz clip!
 A K & Co. chipboard butterfly that I inked up around the edges & added some bling
 THe Tim Holtz clip
 Front cover- the little black frame is an acetate embellisment-my dad picked up a pack of these for me in Tk Maxx bargain basket!
 The chipboard tag is also from Basic Greys Cappella line & I was thinking it could be used for a title

 Each envelope has a matching cardstock photo/journalling mat insert with some crochet lace & a button brad (My Dad also got me a packet of these cute button brads in TK Maxx)
 Basic Grey Chipboard flower

 Another co-ordinating mat :)
 You might just be able to see on the right hand edge of this page I used Basic Grey doilies from the Cappella line again

 I Really liked these acetate shapes & think they matched in nicely with the papers

 Another of the doilies on the right hand side here again

A Tim Holtz stamp-a recent purchase of mine which I love-from the mini muse set!

vintage family shaped mini!

Hey everyone,
Another mini-this time its a shaped mini using Tim Holtz papers, enjoy :)

 This was a fun project to do & I love these vintage style papers-I just did a bit of embellishment on each page as you can see using buttons, bling, stickers & a bow
 The 'F' & 'A' pages are quite small but could be used for family members names or something like that
 As the pages got bigger I made photo/journalling spots


 A prima flower glimmer misted with black chalkboard spray to match the papers

 These papers would really suit photos printed in black & white or sepia tones!!

Thanks for visiting, leave any questions or comments :)

A christmas mini for Clodagh.

Hey guys,

Another mini for ye :) this one is a christmas mini that I made for my friend Sarahs baby girl Clodagh, she's just 2 and a half so I made it as a simple photo book really without tags etc so she can handle it easily! Sarah and Clodagh recently moved into their first own house so I thought it would be nice for her to put in their favourite pics from their first christmas in their beautiful new home.

I made this book using the Docrafts papermania "Festive Frolics" papers, some of Basic Greys jovial chipboard embellishments and of course a bit of Tim Holtz & Prima.


Title is Clodaghs christmas- Tim Holtz grunge letters painted using his distress crackle paint.
 I did the christmas in rub ons using a little bling to dot the i
 Each page was outlined using my Ranger paint dabber in Snow cap for a nice christmassy effect :)
 A bunch of prima flowers

 A Mulberry paper christmas tree

 Basic grey "Jovial" chipboard snowman


These papers are just so cute for any kids christmas themed projects

Front cover using the lovely butterfly print paper, a basic grey bloomer, some bling & pearls & of course some Tim Holtz metal embellisments!

The title of this mini was "love" as it is intended for Sarah to use it for her favourite pics of her & her boyfriend Nigel. For the charms I used one of the lovely Tim Holtz tokens & a nice crystal bead.
