Tim Holtz "Wallflower" Paper Mini

Once again I copied a mini from Ginger over at My Sister's Scrapper.  I fell in love with the paper and how she did a really small album.  It's so small and sweet that I really love it.

I used paper from Stampin' Up..Artichoke? that was the perfect color to blend the papers together.  To grunge up the paper I used Tim Holtz's distress ink "Weathered Wood" and "Victorian Velvet" instead of a vintage brown color.  Both together created this beautiful vintage purple that set off the papers and flowers.  I used "Weathered Wood" to age the green and kraft paper.  I found burlap paper at JoAnn's to the back.  I wish I had one of those fancy tools that makes holes in chipboard at times to add charms or ribbon.  I used Tim Holtz's die with several flowers on it.  Totally love this die to create tattered flowers.  

Graphic 45 "Typography" Mini Album

As usual I should stop starting new projects and finish up what I've been working on.  I have stacks of paper all over the floor in an attempt to organize by project.  It doesn't help that watching YouTube inspires me to start new projects or I fall victim to the next paper stack I fall in love with.  This is worse than fabric.  Fabric prices have skyrocketed into 11-12 dollars a yard when I last walked into a quilt shop.  Ouch.

I started my "Typography" mini album last week and almost have it done.  I love this paper from Graphic 45 and it's starting to get harder to find.  Graphic 45's line has hit and miss papers with me and it seems the older stacks are far better than the newer ones.

I got this mini from Ginger over at "My Sister's Scrapper"   and copied it from her.  She used an 8x8 pad and kept the paper at 4 inches which gives you tons of paper to use.  I added some stuff like more pockets and embellished the inside photo papers.
