My Family - Vintage Mini Album | Scrapbook with Box

Hello guys
Welcome back to my blog...and today I have a new Mini album/ Scrapbook for you all. This one is custom made using vintage papers from Eno Greetings Retro Series paper pack PS003. These paper are very very vintage and super fun to work with...They have some cool oldie typewriters, gramophones, pocketwatch and other vintage images included in the pack. I have used some metal charms, diecuts and stickers which are part of this collection...super fun project. This is the 16th mini album I have made on commission since September 2017 using these papers...however this is the last one in this series as the papers have been discontinued.....its a little sad.

To begin with, this album measures 8.5" by 6.5" and has a 3 3/4" thick spine. There are 8"by 6" 5 interactive pages and have many pockets, flips, photo mats and journaling tags. This album can hold 60 plus 5" by 7" size pictures and of course smaller ones too.

The front of this album is decorated with beautiful papers which come with gold accents and black accents which is awesome in real. A beige lace runs on the front and back cover which is sourced from local stores. I have a shaker window in the front with MY FAMILY sentiment and filled with super fun sequins in all shades of gold, silver, clear and back along with some gold sparkle dots. To add the finishing details, I added a pocket watch charm with a chain in the front and a Gold heat embossed chipboard sentiment Sweet Memories on the spine.
The box made to house this album is 10 3/4" by 83/4" by 5 1/4" and is made from scratch using 1400gsm chipboard. I have used black cardstock to cover this album as well the box. I have kept the box pretty simple and also used pattern paper to decorate it.

I have a video for the same where I show you the album in detail...I encourage you to watch it.

My Journey - Mixed Media Layout Tutorial

Hello guys
I have a new layout to share with you all today. I have tried to do something different this time....wanted to break my pattern of doing floral shabby chic projects and try a new here is what I made....A travel themed layout with maps, tickets and a dusty grimey background.
I have a tutorial for the same where I show you the entire process and I encourage you to watch the video.
Here are a few more pictures of this you can see all the details I added. I had this concept in my mind that I wanted to create....I used the woodgrain paper keeping an old timey wagon in mind which has been everywhere and it covered with dust and grime and little rust..that was the effect I was going for......and very happy to see the end result.

I am putting this project up a the following blog challenges:
  1. More Than Words June Main Challenge - Journey & Map - I have included maps in my layout at multiple places and well as the work Journey. 
  2. Mixed Media Place May Challenge - Moodboard - i have included the coral, teal snd brown colors from the moodboard, The moodboard inspired me to do a travel themed layout and I tried to do the same. The metal scissor loops inspired me to include twine loops in my project. i finished it all with some flowers.
  3. HLS June Mixed Media Challenge - Layers- My layout shows layers of colors as well as papers.
