I've been busy off and on in my craft room this week working on another mini album. For this one, I used the 5th Avenue paper collection from Melissa Francis. Such pretty paper in my favorite pastel colors.
I had purchased two 6 x 6 paper pads of this collection online late last summer and also some coordinating chipboard pieces. Being the hoarder of pretty things that I am, it took me a while to actually get up enough gumption to put it to its intended use. I find it so hard sometimes to cut into such pretty scrapbook paper. But I am getting better as I've come to realize there will always be more out there.
Here's a sneak peak of just a couple of the pages, still in progress...
It's almost, but not quite finished. I still have a few smaller details to finish up and then I'll show you the rest.
And as I took that last picture above, I realized I forgot to show you the pretty lace trim I found at the antique store last weekend. It's very hard to tell from the picture, but it's the softest, prettiest shade of minty green..
There is quite a bit of the trim on the roll and it was very reasonably priced. Less expensive compared to what I would have had to pay for it in the craft stores or fabric shops.
Well, that's all for today. I'm heading out soon to take a short road trip up to St. Cloud to visit the Crafts Direct store in hopes of finding lots more scrappy goodness to add to my stash.
See you soon..
