Blue Raspberry Mini Album

Here is my second mini album for the Scrap It Girl August Mini Album Challenge.  I've had this Blue Raspberry 8x8 paper pack so long I don't even know where I got it.  I think it looks wonderful on this mini album.  I used some of the punch outs from the paper pack and added a few things from my stash.


I used a bit of lace on the left hand side then added a heart doily. I used  a couple of the punch out flowers with glossy accents on them then layered both silk and Prima flowers on top.

 
The pocket holds a piece of punched cardstock with 4 mats for cards or journaling, a little bit of lace on side and a few pearls finish off the page.


 
I had to use the medallion stamp on a piece of transparency.  I cut traced around the album top for the shape, cut it out and punched a hole in the top.  The image is heat embossed with clear embossing powder. A pearl in the center of each side finishes it off.
 

I purple and green daisy came from a Scrapbook Heaven kit, the other flowers I sprayed with a couple of different mists. 



 I used foam tape to raise the photo mat up to make a pocket for the tags.  I used a 3/4" circle punch and a 1/8" hole punch on each tag.

 
The butterflies is from my die cut and punches I use when I'm down to scraps, I just pulled out my Purple one for the side of the page.

 
Love that there was a punch out of a paisley in the paper pack.  I used the photo corner punch on most of the pages.


Another paisley and a few pearls for this page.




I used one of the tags that was included with the paper.  A few had made flowers on the left side to finish it off.  Except for the lace I only used the brown ribbon in this album.
 
 
I misted a heart and cut the lower left side to peak out the left side of the photo mat.  I added a few silk flowers to finish off the page.
 
 
 
Another look at the album front. 
 

 Thanks for stopping by.
