Crafty Secrets Fleur de Lis album & a give-away

Hi friends! I'm home from work today taking care of Terry, he had knee surgery Monday. They went in and did some repair work so he'll be off for a few weeks. I don't know how many more westerns I can take, ugh. ;)

Today I'm showing you an altered chipboard album that Sandy carries in the store, it's the Regal album. Sandy bought out Tattered Angels albums and chipbard frames and fonts. The albums are so cool, they have a window and a heavy acetate piece you adhere to the inside of the window and acetate fleur de lis for the tabs. This album will be a flower garden journal for pictures and notes.

I've got a fun give-away too, more about that in a minute.

I covered the album and the inside dividers with paper from the Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Patterns CD. I colored some seam binding with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo & Spun Sugar ink. I used some bead trim along the paper seam with May Arts ribbon over the top of the trim. I got the trim at a thrift store, 9 yards for $4, a great buy! I love using beaded trim on my projects, it adds so much!

I went wild Vicki style :) with my Glimmer Mist on the pages, I used Sea Glass, Vintage Pink, Garden Fairy, Gingerbread and Juniper.
I decorated the tabbed dividers and this 1st page with Glimmer Misted paper doilies, paper scraps, buttons and embossed chipboard frames. I picked some images from the Birds & Botanicals Images & Journal Notes booklet.

I dabbed my finger in my ink pad and rubbed the frame, I added Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the frame, you can't see it in my pictures though :(

I stamped the edges of the inside pages with my Lacey Patterns stamp set and I used the fleur de lis from my Artsy Banner stamp set on some of the pages. I used Ranger Distress Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint & Broken China ink.




I cut some mats with my Spellbinders Labels 8 die for pictures or journaling out of a vintage writing tablet.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Now, for my give-away!


There is a package of vintage trim, 2 feet of beaded trim, vintage buttons, a spool of ribbon, scalloped paper trim, a Regal chipboard album, embossed frames a bottle of Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and a Birds & Botanicals Images & Journal Notes booklet. Everything you need for a good start on a journal of your own!



Just leave me a comment and I'll pick the winner Tuesday 8-23, the day after our Crafty Secrets monthly designer challenge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good Luck my friends!
