Cottage Chic Mini Album Part 1

After two weeks of work, 
here, finally, is my Cottage Chic mini album created using Marion Smith's printables and My Mind's Eye Portobello Road 6" x 6" paper pad.

Once again, taking photos
of this album was a marathon shooting secession. I took sixty-six in all, but I certainly am not going to post that many. I'll just give you the highlights of each page and post them over the next few days.
Here goes...

The covers are of medium 
weight chipboard, inked with Vintage Photo Distress and a coat of matte gel medium from Golden. The flowers are from Petaloo and I Am Roses; resin window frame by Prima. The first page has double pockets with journaling tags (K & Co with a MME brad) and a photo mat. All the mats and tags in the album are pretty small.

This is one of Marion's
envelopes embellished with Petaloo and I Am Roses flowers. I used the Sizzlet Bird #5 die and Spellbinders Foliage; Queen & Co pearls; Prima Engraver sticker; wide eyelet from We R Memory Keepers; pink seam binding.

A MS printable tag
and a photo mat in the two pockets. I used a lot of Idea-ology Chit Chat stickers in the album and some of the ephemera pieces cut from Marion's Romance Novel paper by Prima.

A double flip photo mat.
The accent piece was cut with Alterations Torn Notebook die.

Prima and I am Roses 
flowers with Prima Engraver stickers.

Prima Essentials flower;
a My Mind's Eye button; May Arts pink burlap string; Us sentiment from Teresa Collins Memorabilia collection.

Always title from the
Teresa Collins Memorabilia collection.

A mini envelope
made into a photo mat with room for journaling inside. Accent pieces were cut with Alterations Torn Notebook die; title and inside arrow die cut from the Teresa Collins Memorabilia collection. I made most of the tabs in the album using various Corner Chompers. 

More to come tomorrow.
