Recycled Brown Paper Album

I love my little Brown Paper Mini Albums that I designed using some recycled brown paper from packing in my stamp supplies, and today I have another one that is made for another love in my life - my little granddaughter Mackenzie.

There are a number of recycled bits and pieces on the cover as well as the entire album being made from recycled paper. I used to sew before I started stamping and the gathered lace has been taken from one of those sewing projects.  The Striped Paper that I've torn in rough circles to make the Lollipop flower is from my scrap bin as are the papers for all other elements on this cover.

My Big Shot and accessories came in very handy for lots of the elements on the cover and throughout the album, and the Stampin' Up! punches make life easy too. 

I can't remember where or when I bought the jewelled flower motives but the colours went well with the rest of the project and I just know Kenzie is going to be a bling girl. (even though she is only 11 months old!!)

Inside the album,  each page continues the theme of ribbons and butterflies, and I've used the Stampin' Up! Subtles Collection Paper Stack as the basis for these pages. Lots of different colours so I should be able to find photos to coordinate with each page.

If you would like more information on how to create these Mini Albums, or would like to attend a class, please contact me for details.

I know I am going to enjoy finding photos to match the pages.

Until Next Time

Stay Crafty and Stay Happy
