Hey Everyone! Sorry that I have been slacking again. So many changes going on, Im just having a hard time keeping up with real life, much less anything else. I am angeling a spot in Becca's mini album swap on the CMB. I am having such a hard time with it. It has turned into 2 albums. I need for YOU to help me decide which I should finish and send to Jerzey. Please leave a comment and let me know which one you like the best. Both of these are totally done differently. On 1 album I used Tim Holtz's Lost and Found paper pack and the other one I used Mariposa. Neither of them are complete. I still have to complete the tags and finish embellishing.
On with the photos......
The album on the left is the Tim Holtz themed album.
The album on the right is the Mariposa themed album.
Here are a couple of closeups of the front covers
I LOVE the blue flowers that I made for this cover.
I made 2 different styles of them using Tim's tattered florals die.
I dont normally have good luck with the roses, but these came out ok.
The butterfly in the memory glass is the exact butterfly thats under it on
the actual paper from the cover. and gotta love that prima flourish bling!!!
The butterfly is "Recollections"... aka M's brand made by Prima.
I TOTALLY LOVE the cover of this album. The detail
on the birdcage itself isnt shown very well here, but it has
soooo much texture!! I cut it out on vintage dictionary covered
grungepaper, then I inked it (of course), then I covered it in UTEE
and heat embossed it. After it cooled I added Rock Candy distress
stickles to it. It has sooooo much texture and shimmer. I love it!
I really put a lot of TLC into that birdcage. I dont think the
bird is too shabby either :)
Either way they are both really nice minis. Both of the covers are
unique in their own way.
I cant decide if I should post all the insides or not. I dont want to spoil
everything for Jerzey because I know she will be peeking!! I guess that
I can since they arent "finished". The things that will be added can be
her surprises. I certainly hope that she isnt disappointed with whichever
one that she receives. I guess its gonna depend on the finished product anyway.
Or I can do the "pick a hand" with my girls....... LOL!
OK, OK...... heres more pics......
The Tim Holtz themed album.......
Sooo..... I would really love your comments and your help in
selecting an album to send. They are both great in their
own ways. Again, neither are complete. They need tags, more
embellishments, ribbon, charms, etc.
And ps.... the Tim Holtz mini was made from the kit
that I had available on my blog a while back. I still have
more than 1/2 of the embellishments and paper left to include!!!!!
Told ya, it was enough for 2 or 3 albums!!
Thanks for looking!!!
