Mini Album Using the Envelope Board

Below you will see the Pink Paislee Hope Chest Mini Album that I made using the NEW!!!!! Envelope Punch Board. This month I chose to use the envelope board to do my mini album. I must say I LOVE this board!! Fast and easy once you get the hang of it. Before I glued the envelopes I put in a circle and a brad to tie some string around the envelopes to keep them closed. Using a couple of the sizes and this thing can go up to some big envelopes too!! I so loved this collection the vintage light pinks and just a hit of color through out so I pared it up with some browns. The ephemera packs are chucked full also. I used several elements from Flamingo Scrap

On the cover I used Chipboard and prepped it with Gesso, Then I mixed some Tim Holtz Distress Paint Broken China with some heavy molding paste and used a brick stencil. I then used Prima Chalk Edgers Vintage Pink, Pastel Pink and Pastel Brown to add the different shadings around the cover. And then I cut some of the Prima SIIC Hexagon Clear to add just a little bling to the cover.

With this typewriter I used TH Distress Paint Black Soot and Silver. I used Pink Paislee She Art — Coffee Filter Sheets Words for the paper coming out of the typewriter.

The front of the book I used the Prima Symphony Blend Amoroso Pink, Prima Sherwood Rose Partridge and then I used the Prima Chalk Fluid Edger Vintage Pink and the Prima Chalk Fluid Edger Pad – Pastel Pink. Then I used the Prima Ceylon White Wedding to color these flowers by spraying them with water after you use the chalk edgers. By doing this it blends the colors to make it look more natural. I also used a Maya Road Trinket Pins Crystals

To close this book up I used a Tim Holtz Buckle and some Prima Alencon Lace 1
I tucked the lace under the typewriter so it would hold the lace in place.

Now on to the inside of the book...
Pages 1-2
I used a FabScraps Die-Cut Grey Chipboard Decorative Hinges
and used them as a place to put pictures or tags.
Pages 3-4

I wanted to tell you how I did this Maya Road Metal Trinket Clips Dressform I took some of the Prima Alencon Lace 1 and Fabri-Tac and just ruffled and scrunched it up. Thought this was just a little touch and was not hard at all.

Tim Holtz Alterations Clock

Today I used a picture of my great nephew and my mom. Today is his 1st birthday and he loves his Aunt Momo as much as I love him. AKA ”Cookie, Cookie, Cookie!!” LOL Because he is always asking only me for cookies!!! My mom said he will only know me as the cookie lady. LOL

On to my Design Team project this week I altered a Tim Holtz Alarm Clock. Oh my gosh this was so much fun to play with. I so want to do more of these!!! I tore this thing apart so I could take the glass out of it…then I Painted the whole thing with gesso so that I could cover it using pattern paper and Tissue wrap. After I applied the papers using Multi Medium I used some Glimmer Mist splattered it in spots which I think makes the handle and feet look really old. Then took gesso back over in different places and Kind of highlighted areas. I think this might just be my favorite to date project!!! Suzanne does not have these in the store but you can ask her to special order them for you if you would like. Be sure to stop by Flamingo Scraps for all your crafting needs. She has some of the best stuff to get your creative juices flowing!! Hope you like my creation as much as I loved making it!!

First off I took the glass out of the front of the clock then I coated the clock with gesso, then I let that dry. I used multi medium and started putting on the Tim Holtz Tissue paper. Then I added strips of the Lifetime paper words page. Next I used Tattered Angels Mist...I chose light colors so that you could see the paper. I used the Tattered Angels Suede one so that it would give it the old rusted look. I also used Maya Road Vintage Jewel Rhinestone Trim – Iridescent Diamond around the outside of the clock.

I then covered the back of the clock and and then started decorating it. I used Prima Symphony Blend Amoroso Pink The picture of my mom and nephew is in a Studio Calico Wood Veneers — Sampler 1. With this I had to use chipboard to prop it up. By doing this I cut a small strip of chipboard bended it in half and applied glue to hold it up. I also added a Studio Calico Wood Veneer Cameras

Here is a side view using old chain that I had found in the garage. I used gesso on it. Then hung the Prima Vintage Trinkets Birdcage, Maya Road Metal Antique Music Box Keys and Owl on it.

On the other side I used Maya Road Chipboard Shipping Tag Set, Maya Road Bird Cage Wood Pieces and Prima Divine Cotton Lace – 1 Roll for the bow and a tiny pin to pin it to the lace.

For this I used the Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings Vintage Trinkets — Turns & Handles and a Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings Vintage Trinkets — Gears

I also used
Prima Chalk Ink Edgers — Entire Set of 48 Colors!!!-several different browns and blue for the bird inside of the cage.
Tim Holtz Alarm Clock
Prima Lyrics paper
Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap Paper - Melange
Tattered Angels Suede
Tattered Angels Walnut Gold
