My Vintage Mini made with love for Paula.

Okay here it is my first attempt at a vintage album, I do kinda think it looks the part (old and distressed) but I don't think it looks a lot like the other albums coming out of this swap......














Little key looks like it fits the keyhole but they are from different companies.














The vellum pocket, holds 2 tags, it is decorated with hand tatted lace I got at a yard sale, the ric rack is vintage too.











The tag at the front is a reproduction of a birthday card.







Another vellum envelope to hold the tags and a silver heart dangle that says 'love'.


The words that look had written throughout the album are rub-ons.



































I thought I was pretty original putting in a little book and Paula made me one too! We also used the same stick pins! Surprise!









The little pictures are from a sheet of K @ Co. paper Life's Journey Stamp Collage embossed paper.


















































I bought a package of vintage embellishments and that is what the postcard was in.






A bit more vintage lace and butterfly trim, along with brass brads.



The pocket is formed with two metal corners, I inked the bright green to make it blend with the feel of the album.


Well, I might have to try it again someday I am not sure I have this vintage distressed thing down, but I was made with love!

Feel free to ask any questions. and make comments.
