Shabby Chic mini album

(Heavy photo post warning)
Hello there, I am back again but still haven’t found my crafting mojo? I am still looking as I type this.
I was recently asked to make something pretty for a special girl who is turning 11 this weekend. I thought I would make a mini album which turned out a ‘shabby chic’ mini album due to the colours of the papers I used. These were the Signature Blueberry Hill range from Papermania. I have had them for ages and didn’t know what to use them for.

page 2, good old Tim Holtz birdcage die

page 3 , with a photo mat booklet that will allow Grace to add pictures and personalise her album

and finally page 4
The gorgeous images I used were found at:  http://magicmoonlightfreeimages.blogspot.com

I think that I have probably broken every ‘shabby chic’ rule if there is such a thing! But I tried. I am sure Grace will love it. It is very mini at only 4 pages, and very bulky (see I told you I broke the rules), but hopefully it passes as something near to lovely. It’s simple and there is only one pearl on the whole project!!! Can you see where?

A little but of lace and distress inks, some glittery butterfly trails and smidgen of glossy accents.

Thank you for coming over and having a peep at my project, if you find my mojo will you please tell it to come home ASAP lol

  1. Hi Sharon , I have found your mojo !!!! its taken a little trip and is holed up with mine somewhere , have just received a postcard from them but without an address !! Its apparently a place full of mojo escapees looking to have a little r & r lol. Anyway mojo or no mojpo this mini is beautiful ! I dont think there are any rules on vintage or anything else come to that and most of the minis I have seen or made have been fat little things. I'm sure Grace will love it it is so pretty.
    Take care and if I have any more news on the mojo front will let you know.


  2. Well Sharon I think your mojo has definitely found you again as this mini album is so beautiful. I would love to receive it and I know Grace will too. The details are gorgeous and it will be a gift for her to treasure. XX
