Vintage Wedding Mini Album using Creative Cuts and More & WAS CHOOSEN AS CREAM OF THE CROP OVER AT CROP STOP; AND CHOOSEN AT TOP 3 OVER AT CRAFTS AND ME; AND WAS A WINNER OVER AT CREATIVE CRAFTS

Hello everyone!!!  I want to share this Vintage Wedding Mini Album with you today!  I created this mini using goodies from Creative Cuts & More..  Starting with  6" x 6" Chipboard Album Covers for the pages. Added some Tags and Pockets, but will get to those a little later, and bound it together with album rings. Oh and don't forget some Killer Red Tacky Tape , or if you prefer the Killer White Tear-able Tacky Tape.. It's a must have to put these together... 
I have lots of photos to share, so sit back and enjoy!!!

Here's the whole thing!!

Here's the front cover...  The paper I used is Ella Blue g . c . d . studios and it's an 8" by 8" (48 sheet) paper stack.. I love the colors of this and it's perfect for my wedding photos... Oh, I forgot to tell you, this is "MY" wedding album... Yep, the photos are of me and my husband back in 1977.. so don't laugh!!!
I've made 3 or 4 of these albums and given them away, I wanted to make one for me and I wanted it to be special and something I can hand down after we are gone..
I've used stickers, Chipboard Heart, Pearls, Ribbon, Feather, Prima Say It In Pearls, and some charms..


Boy, don't we look like a couple of kids... :o)
Here we have (2) Tag #04 in Chocolately Chip - SU Smooth from Creative Cuts & More. I embossed these with my cuttlebug. You can also order these with a layer of a different color...
Also added some Pearls, Butterfly Sticker, Lace, and Key and Lock Trinket..


Here is a Doily, Decorative Frame, Pearls, Butterfly Sticker..


Here I used (3) Tag Card (in Espresso Brown - SU Smooth) with Two Tags (in Blueberry Pie - Bazzill Smoothies) from Creative Cuts & More.   I embossed the top layer with my cuttlebug embossing folder and attached all three together.. The back of the first one to the front of another one.. the back of the second one with the front of the third one... Before I attached them together I added lace between the layers.. and then just attached the last one to my album... Added the layers and then my photos..
Notice the pearl knob on top.. this unscrews and lets the pages drop down... see next photos...
Used felt die cuts,
Heart Charm,
Lace,
Spellbinders Die Cut Frame,
Prima Say It In Pearls
Sticker Butterfly...


Knob unscrewed...


This is the First Tag opened....


Second Tag opened...


Third Tag opened...


This is a 6" x 6" acetate page. I covered it with a Hambly Screen Print and then I attached the Slash Pocket with Tag #05 Pocket is in Chocolately Chip -SU Smooth and the tag is in Powder Blue - Bazzill Canvas. I also embossed the front of this with my cuttlebug embossing folder...


Here is the tag pulled out... I did a lot of distressing on this album and tags with Tim Holtz Distressing Inks..



Back side of the tag...


The back side of the acetate page is identical as the front.. The Slash Pocket with Tag #05 Pocket is in Chocolately Chip -SU Smooth and the tag is in Powder Blue - Bazzill Canvas. I also embossed the front of this with my cuttlebug embossing folder...


Tag pulled out...


Back side of the tag...


Tim Holtz Caged Bird Die Cut, Jewels, Lace, Dusty Attic Chipboard, Tattered Angels, Stick Pins and Pearls..


Chipboard Frame...


Back side of the Chipboard...


Here is a little flip frame that I made used the Tim Holtz border Punch, Added a Dusty Attic Frame over the photo and added a Sticker.. Held with a Paper Clip that I recycled..


Here is the back side.. Photo is of me and my Dad..


Here I have used a beautiful frame, Sticker, and a Butterfly Sticker.. 
If you look closely under the paper clip you can see a tag... I have not journaled on this yet, but I will put some personal family history on it so when this little mini passes down through the years, it won't be a mystery!!! Something I wished my Grandmother would have done for me....


Used a lot of lace on this page, some flowers and bling... Also if you untie the bow you can lift this up and see more photos...


Just so you know.. the reason I am looking at my dear sweet husband like I am, is because I gave him strict orders he better not smash the cake in my face.... And as you can see he didn't!!!! :o)


Just a photo of me...  Also used a Kaiser Craft Wooden  Dress Form, Added some Pearls, Lace, Sizzix Flourish Die, and Flower...


Here I used a Lace Heart Doily, Prima Flowers, Bling, Feather, Martha Stewart Border Punch


Now here on the back, I am going to sign it and date it in my own handwriting, even though I don't like my handwriting. Years from now I think it will mean a lot if I do that....

Here are a few challenges this will qualify for...
Card and Scrap ~ Inspiration..
Craft Us Crazy ~ Anything Goes
Crafts And Me ~ Blues or Blue/Greens
Creative Craft Challenge ~ Anything But A Card
Crop Stop Challenge ~ Pearls, Pearls and more Pearls
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge ~ Use 3 or more of your favorite embellies. (I used--flower(s), pearls, ribbon)
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Rainbow Lady's Challenge ~ Your Song Choice --  3rd Page ~ We've Only Just Begun...

Well, that's all I've got for you today!!!
I hope I've inspired you just a little to go check out the goodies over at Creative Cuts & More!! If you do want to make a mini album, I found it easier for me to find the papers I want to use first. When you've done that just sit down with your paper and shop away... And don't forget to get some Killer Red Tacky Tape and/or Killer White Tear-able Tacky Tape and some Album Rings!!!
Thanks so much for dropping by today!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs!!!
Pin It!
