Traditions Simply Elegant Mini Album

Standard

I dont even know where to begin, so much is crammed in this mini!  Lots of Dollar Tree embellishment stickers, Lots of Prima stamps, K&Co Paper Moss form Dollar Tree, Dollar tree satin roses,  Flowers I made, Flowers friends made, Flowers bought in bulk. Cricut Cuts, Package inserts, The bird on the bottom of the second page was hand cut.  The kep holes are a Tom Holts Sizzix Die.  The pink rose and the love charm were gifts from Krista, from Krista’s Paper Cafe.   I must however tell you, the paper piecing of the bird in the gold cage, was bought on Ebay, I couldnt resist him, and I dont remember who it was. When I find out, I will definitely (as always) give credit where credit is due!  The mini is simply healed together by a thick string of jute.  I love the simple graceful elegance of this one!

The Help has been passed on to a beautiful friend

Standard

And of course she’s going to need a book mark, To tell the truth, I had a crafty epic fail the morning I made this and by the end of the day, I was plain out determined to put these hands to paper and create something beautiful before the day was over.

A friend seen the movie and wanted to then read the book, I had it  because I read, and finished the book my Girls’ first day back to school, so I sent it on to her.   By the time I was half done with this tag, I knew God had begun this tag with a purpose.  It was for her.  It was sent on to her and received with many happy smiling thanks!  It felt wonderful!  I don’t usually do cute, but it turned out that way.  It was just  what came out of me.

I inked the background (manilla paper tag) using  American Girl ink Pink and Blue (Purple is just the overlapping of colors) with my Tim Holtz applicator, and a piece of felt, I never buy the refills, just a white piece of felt.

Autumn Leaves brand stamps on the ticket, This is a real (just inked) ticket that my daughter won from a game at the skating rink, They are blank on the back, I put them to good use!

I have a ton of  skittles a friend made me for my birthday last year
