My first mini album!!

I want to share with you guys my very first mini album...I made this album for my parents on their marriage anniversary .I wanted to keep the theme both vintage and flowery so decided to use the fresh floral paper stack  from DCVW which i purchased from imaginationsonline and some distress inks..
I have used various shapes for pages... love the poppy shape

This post is picture heavy so please bear with me...

This is the cover... made the black satin roses and the glittered butterfly myself...the heart  charm on top right corner is an old jewellery..Album is titled "listen to your heart"... pie lane adhesive bling and stamp from Tim holtz urban grunge from imaginations...

Here I have made a stain flower and few paper roses... two photo mats which I have distressed and stamped with walnut stain and vintage photo..using tim holtz urban grunge acrylic stamp.. the flourish is a chipboard from itsybitsy
On the right is a small booklet to hold pics of my mom n dad...


These are the 4th  and 5th pages...on the left is an top open envelope with photo mats some lace and a handmade spiral satin rose with a simple jewellery pin...and on the right is an accordion booklet which opens both ways to accommodate pictures and journaling... there are also my handmade yo yo flowers with button centres...

The 6th and 7th pages...with a number of photo mats on the 6th and a simple distressed photo mat on 7th  page... the charm is again an old artificial jewellery...the 7th page is all stamped and distressed using tim holtz urban grunge stamp and walnut stain


Following are next two pages..the paper flowers are made using the same paper from the collection and distressed with mats have been used to accommodate pics here the fiskars butterfly magic acrylic stamp has also been used ...


With These pages  I wanted to have a different colour but still carrying the same look. The glittered butterfly is from itsybitsy...adhesive bling from pie lane from imaginations...the page on the left has been crumpled...then flattened and distressed using faded jeans distress ink and then finally hot ironed...
 the flower on the right is made by me using the paper from the collection

 In these pages again i have handmade the spiral paper roses and the satin flowers with beaded  flower centre... the photo mat on left side is made using paper distressing technique...
On the right i have made a small booklet which slips into the transparent sheet  envelope which has been decorated using the flowers....

the booklet opens like so..
I have slipped in a few pics to show how it works...there is a lot of space for pictures and journaling in here too... the tutorial for this booklet is by kathyorta on her YouTube channel...


The following page on the left has a photo mat and a few old flowers... there is a bead sprig I created using silver thick flower making wire...the right side has an accordion style envelope with many photo mats...



  the  accordion style envelope...

the back cover is left plain black..
