A vintage mini & a YouTube video!!!!

 Hey everybody,

Just wanted to share a mini album that I made for my friend Carmel-she wanted a photobook for pictures of her daughter Jane from when she was young to give Jane for her birthday. So, I created this book for her using Tim Holtz lost & found papers! Perfect for that vintage feel for childhood photos :)

Also, at the bottom of this post, I will have a video of the first RAK I have ever sent being received by its recipient-my scrappy friend Pam over in America! Check for her videos on youtube-her name there is poconopam & she is just such a nice, friendly lady-subscribe if you have a youtube account,

 On the front cover is some Tim Holtz stickers, graphic 45 stickers, bling, maya road lollipop flower & some words I wrote with my stickers from K & co. I added the larger February sticker as thats when Janes birthday is. As it turns out she was born on tuesday the 1st of Feb-and on the sticker the 1st is on a tuesday too-perfect!!
 I used real swarovski crystals for the centres of the flowers
 Carmel had mentioned she didn't want too much embellishments & that she wanted it to be a photo book so I kept it simple adding just a little spot for her to title & date each photo-on the plainer pages I added a flower & swarovski crystal to the journalling spots.
 These papers are perfect for older pictures because the colours are soft-this would make the perfect background for a baby picture

 I was thinking this ruler page would be good for a school picture

 This pictorial alphabet page is one of my favourites

 I love this soft blue colour-I just love all of Tims papers & products-did u see the previews of his new stuff from CHA-hello!!!! I cant wait to get some of those goodies!

 I liked the way at the centre of this page is a dolls pram-works well for little girl pics :)
These are the beautiful crochet flowers my mom made that make an appearance in Pams video-please watch the videp here-it was so nice to see Pams reaction; 

Thanks again for visiting!! Aideen X

Green at heart mini

 Hello everyone,

So here is my weekly blog post :)

This is a mini I made using Basic Greys green at heart collection-they are lovely colourful papers too work with! This mini was made for Aisling by request once again from my Aunty Anne.

So where am I in my scrapbooking journey?-I posted off my pages to Daphna for the time flies swap over on the scrap beach- I also had joined a paper & goody swap which I posted off this week to my swap partner Tricia in New York. I am in another swap which I will soon be starting my pages for & it is using the new Graphic 45 once upon a springtime papers which I love.

Anyway-Heres my pics-enjoy!
 I titled the mini "Find your path" and used lots of Prima flowers with button brads for centres on the cover, and some butterfly stickers.
 A Tim Holtz clip closure-I just love using these clips
 Some matching green ribbon, beads & a Tim Holtz muse token on the closure
 These papers have a lovely mix of nice, bright colours
 I made a mini journalling tag-attached by a Tim Holtz clip & some of the Basic Grey green at heart pops stickers
 This is a K & Co. butterfly that I glued down except for one wing where there is a little photo/journalling mat that slides out from under the wing
 Theres room for another photo in behind the mat
 A Tim Holtz adage ticket & another of the pops stickers
 Lots of room for photos here
 A Basic Grey bloomer & A Tim Holtz stamp that I embossed
 A journalling spot down the edge of this page with a nice purple bow to match in with the papers
 Another Adage ticket & Pops sticker
 Another butterfly with a large pull out mat-I attached a Tim Holtz adage ticket with a Tim Holtz paper clip
 A Large journalling spot on the back
 Layered Prima flowers with a button centre
 A Tim Holtz journalling ticket & some bling
More prima flowers & I added buttons to the centres of the larger ones
