Good morning! Today I would like to share a mini album I made for my Grandmother for her birthday recently.

This is the cover shot of the album. I used vintage music, a doily folded over, a vintage magazine image, my label maker and my sewing machine on this cover.

The view of my very stuffed mini.
Inside page one and two. Mostly vintage items on the pages except for some Prima and Melissa Frances rub ons.

I used a rub on phrase on the paper doily. It was a bit of a challenge to get the rub on to stick on the doily, but I managed.

I used a mix of fabric and paper on this album and I also handstitched on it occasionally.

I truly enjoyed creating this mini! It was one of the most fun things that I've worked on in awhile!

I used an October Afternoon rub on for the left page.

I used a lot of scraps for this mini. The pages of the mini were tiny glassine bags.

I did put in a variety of tags in the openings of the glassine bags. However, I forgot to take pictures of the tags! LOL. On the right page below, I tucked the tag inside a fabric pocket.

Thank you for looking today! Please excuse my blog's background appearance. It is a work in progress!!

Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I know your grandmom loved it. You have time to make one for my birthday... :)

Love all the vintage elements and the pages look so nice together. Now I have to get some of those bags and try one for myself!
