Mini album

Have not been posting for a while but just have been so busy with making my shabbi chic mini album that I have lost count of the days! This time I promised myself not to use too many embellishments but I broke my promise already! I can't close my gatefold mini. As binding I used big rings but they aren't enough and the amount if pages is also quite high. So I had a choice... Either I take away a few pages or change binding technique. So new binding it is... Just a quick pic how the album' thickness presence.

Card challenges

So I am taking part in craft challenges for the first time. Looking at other posts I think I'm out of my head and there is no way I could even dream on winning so many good contestants. But let's just give it a go...

This card goes to following challenges:

That Craft Place - White on white
rafts and me challenges: Doily heaven
So here is my card:

Firstly I painted the card white as I had none in stock of this color. Then ripped some white corrugated paper and rounded the corner. After attaching doily using baroque die from TH I cut another piece of white card stock.  Punched a circle where I stamped Love with TH vintage photo distress ink. I took angel wings grunge piece from Tim Holz, painted it and added pearl white perfect pearls. I made white lace ribbon flower and added a button. Also attached white skeleton leaves and pearl strands as finishing touches. 

Hope you like it! Oh and Happy Valentine's Day :D

Birthday card

I do not make many cards but during family and friends birthday I make all the efforts. Here is a card I made for someone at work and just only because I wanted to. It took me a short time to completed it and I suspect all the inking and distressing took most of it. I wanted to keep it private so covered the name of the person this card was for. 

I distressed and inked the background adding a mask for more effect and layers (I just love layers) stamping with quote stamp from Tim Holtz stamp set, then added some lace with flat back white pearls. Trimmed and distressed a tag stamped with swirl stamp and added butterflies and a key charm with gold tassel.

I distressed Tim Holtz grunge key hole piece and used UTI to make it a little stronger. Added blue feather and attached made spirals from gold  wire.

Hope you like the card. Any questions I am happy to answer. Just feel free to ask.

Here is one of my youtube videos I made for my mini album 'Once upon a Time'. I think I had explained what papers and embellishments I had used in the video but if any questions just ask.
I had so much fun making the not so mini mini album and already think about making another one!!!
