Vintage Finds Mini Album

Yesterdays post was a free SVG file for a window envelope/pocket page. Today I’m going to share how I took that file and created a vintage mini album in just two days. The paper collection is Teresa Collins Vintage Finds.

The front and back covers were created from corrugated cardboard. You might recognize this cover from a previous share I did. I distressed everything and sprayed it with some glimmer mists and embellished. My favorite part of this vintage mini album cover are the embossed gears.

I used the window SVG file to create six pocket pages all with different windows. I saved the window pieces and used them on the covers of the tags/inserts for each pocket page.

The inside of each insert opened up to reveal another pocket that held one tag and a photo matt for a wallet size photo. The back of each insert was left blank but could be used to hold a 4×6 or another wallet photo.

The back of each pocket page has a 4×6 photo matt.

I did a lot of different distressing techniques for the tags along with some stamping.

A really pretty and colorful glitter tag I made and stamped with a ferris wheel stamp from Glitz Design.

Most of the embellishments are all from the Teresa Collins collection including the stickers, some of the stamps, washi tapes, twine and ribbon.

My favorite tag included a transparency overlay that almost made the butterflies look like they were flying off of the page.

The whole mini album as is holds 6 wallet size photos and 6 4×6 photos. I also added a pocket onto the last page to hold all of the extra goodies I collect when scrapbooking. You can see that in the video below.
