A New Vintage Book From An Antique Inspiration!

Hello Again!

Just going through the things on my To Do list this morning!  I wanted to share with you all a little project that I finished last night using some of the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology pieces!  Yahoooo!  Love them!

My friend Fiona sent me an antique photo album this week.  I was so intrigued with how the bookmakers made the pages for the pictures that I knew immediately I needed to give this little album a try.

Here's The Amazing Older One...





Here is my take on this very cool photo book.....









Here is a video on how the pages were made.....





Supplies Used Can Be Found at Inspiration Emporium.




Thanks for Coming By!  Have an Awesome Day!

  16. It's so cute. Love how it only took you 8 minutes to do pages, I know it will be an ALL day project when I sit down to do it. It would make a great baby gift...not that any of my friends are having babies these days.
