Vintage Stampin' Up Papillon Album !

Hello ! I had fun this week raiding my retired stamp sets and having a play with some of my old favourites ! I produced what was meant to be a mini album but it ended up being rather larger - 12 x 6 inches to be precise - so I called it an album ! I love butterflies so found out all my favourite ones and put them all together; the idea of this project is to add poems/quotes/photos to the album and then gift it to someone special - or you can keep it yourself !!!! Here are some photos - I'll talk you through as we go along ......


Front cover - Made from a whole piece of Coaster Board ( as is the back cover ) - ink stamps on to this surface so beautifully ! It's stamped collage style with a big blue flower and some pretty butterfly embellishments ! I have broken the rules by putting my ribbon down the centre - but I like it there !!



The pages inside are all different lengths with fancy edges - all the pages and cover are sponged around the edges with crumb cake ink ! 



I printed off some free vintages images onto vellum and added these to the pages along with stamped images - most of which are of a botanical theme !




Some of the pages have little pockets for storing precious items !



Thank you so much for stopping by - I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I loved making it !!!
Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting !
