Grateful Thankful Blessed Mini Album

Standard

Hello there friends and Authentique Paper fans!  Ginny here with a project created with one of the gorgeous new collections. Mister is so warm and rich and full of gorgeous patterned papers, and vintagy images.  When I can’t decide what paper to use I just make a mini album so I can use all the patterns!!!!

The cover is well layered with the papers all matted in the Spectrum cardstock that coordinates so perfectly. This sentiment has one of my favorite sayings. It’s sweet and humbling all at the same time. It was part of one of the journal tags and clipped out with a circle die.

I picked a few coordinating flowers and created a bit of a frame for the sentiment. The spine is finished with the papers and has some unique little vintagy inspired charms and a large bow made of satin ribbon.

I thought this bronzy metal embellishment went well with this warm rustic theme.  The inside has a second sentiment clipped from another journal card. More flowers here for balance as well as some sequins and metal gears.

The first set of pages has a nice large area for a bigger picture and a tuck spot to include the full sized journal cards. The backs are finished so private journaling can be added. I included  a second layer of matting to brighten up the darker colors. Not only does this look nice but every layer of paper added makes this book heavier and more sturdy. This book weighs so much lol.

I told you I was wanting to use all the patterns right lol?  This time I picked the paisley print and added a graphic stripe. Pockets hold folded inserts for more room for pictures. and extra mementos.

This fun pattern is like old timey news print with all those classic cars! Can you only imagine driving around town in one of those?  I’m a pickup truck girl myself as we live out in the country so these fancy cars are not very practical right?

I can never get enough tip ins. Why not utilize all those awesome journal cards? These are very inspirational don’t you think?

Under those tip ins is a large full sized page for loads of space to add your own perfect details.

Speaking of full sized pages…..these pages are full sized tip ins.  It just keeps going and going!

The back pages have corner pockets with tags tucked inside. I could not resist adding more of those journal cards.
