Engraver Mini Album

I really wanted to make this album to capture the whole experience of my cutie hubs' first time to have the privilege to organize our local, annual memorial of Jesus Christ's sacrifice of his life for our sins. This is the cover of my album. I love the very vintage, yet timeless feel of the Prima Engraver 6x6 pad. I used the Teresa Collins Chipboard album. On the front here, you can see that I used so many great things from the Flamingo Scraps store! There's the seam binding ribbons tied onto the binder rings of the album, the Prima SIIC Circles, the Wendy Vecchi Clear Star Brand Jar and the Fab Scraps Metal Filigree charms.

This beautiful Artisan Chipboard Butterfly from Pink Paislee sitting atop this Studio Calico Wood Veneer Scalloped Circles nestled in among all these Prima Classic Orange Roses is so elegant and glam!

When I got these Studio Calico Wood Veneer Tiny Stars from Flamingo Scraps, I was sure I would fall in love, but I had no idea! I was seriously not prepared to love them this much!!!! They are like confetti times 10,000,000!

In these photos you can see me and a few girlies making the unleavened bread. My hubs had to procure the bread and since there are no places to buy unleavened bread where we live, someone has to bake it. As the good little wifey that I am, I volunteered =) I helped make it once before and so I thought it would be fun if some of the younger girls got to join in on the fun! The first page has some amazing texture from the Prima Engraver papers and the and the Tim Holtz Distress Paints I splashed across it. I used a Mr Huey's Medium Dropper to create this effect. I simply removed the lid from the paint and dipped the dropper in to grab some of the paint and splashed away!

 These Studio Calico Wood Veneer Tabs are just soooooo cute!

This Prima Ascot Park Flower is so much prettier in person!!!!

 I love making pockets and envelopes on mini albums to fit more photos in!

 Look at these blingy SIIC Arrowheads from Prima! Just look at them!!!! Give me an arrow and I am happy, make it blingy I will love you forever, lol!

This pretty lil Prima Classic Cream Rose gets nestled in some paint drops from the Tim Holtz Distress Paint.

This page is funny. Why do I not own a rolling pin? Pint glasses work in a pinch!

This cute Maya Road Metal Trinket Little Birdie Clip in the shape of a heart added some charm to my album. (The other side of the paper clip is a bird, so you can use it either way or strategically place it to show both on different pages of your mini album. I love the versatility of it!)

The recipe said to liberally fork the bread. So we did.

 This butterfly is made with a punch and some Prima Engraver paper -- so elegant and timeless!

 Check out this Studio Calico Wood Veneer Arrow. How Cute is this?

 I love this fabulous little Fab Scraps Metal Filigree Charm!

Enjoying a snack while the bread bakes...

This Prima  SIIC Hexagon is so gorgeous surrounding the tiny Prima Classic Cream Rose..., I had to use two hexagons on this one!

 I used a LOT of these cute Studio Calico Wood Veneer Tabs

This page is extra-special because... folds out to reveal more photos!

I framed Jerad in this photo with a Prima SIIC Circle and added Prima SIIC Arrowheads to add emphasis. I was worried because he didn't want dinner before the ceremony! He had Coke and a yogurt. I was really nervous he would crash, have a hypoglycemic episode, and need food. I stashed food in  purse, just in case! But, he didn't need it. He was completely fine.

 Check out this sparkly Prima Hello Pastel Fiber Trim under the butterfly. The shine doesn't show up well in the photos, but believe me, it adds some bling to your project!

Another arrow, but this time it's a Pink Paislee Artisan Chipboard Arrow. I inked it lightly to give it an aged look.

This is a picture a cute girlie posing by the wine and bread for the ceremony.

These Studio Calico Tiny Stars I decided to paint black so that they would stand out against the neutral tones in the Prima Engraver 6x6 paper.

 This clothes pin is not only cute, but it cues the viewer to know that there is an interactive element here. I used another Prima Classic Light Pink Rose on this page.

The photo lifts to reveal another photo and a journaling spot. These beautiful flowers served as a great decoration for such an important occasion.

 I just can't get over how vintage yet timeless, versatile, neutral and makes-a-strong-statement at the same time that this Prima Engraver Paper is!

 I layered a butterfly punched from the Prima Engraver paper over a Maya Road Canvas Mini Butterfly and two stick pins to make this gorgeous butterfly.

 More blingy SIIC Arrowheads from Prima, but this time they are black!

 The Prima SIIC Circle fit on this Prima Engraver Paper watch perfectly! Prima did you plan this? Lol!

 This Prima Tea Thyme Clothespin has pocket watches on it that coordinated perfectly with the watches on the Engraver paper, so of course I had to pin it on!

Looking thru these photos,  I realized that I really do like these Studio Calico Wood Veneer tabs. I used a LOT of them!

This left page shows Jerad rehearsing one last time about an hour before the ceremony started. The right "page" is actually the Teresa Collins Vintage Finds Chipboard Album back cover. It has a pocket that is made with the Prima Engraver Paper that holds an invitation to the ceremony that I saved.

 These Teresa Collins Vintage Finds Flash Cards have great sentiments! They are tied on with seam binding.

Another pocket to sneak in more pics!
These Prima SIIC Circle under the butterfly cluster gives the feeling of graceful movement to the butterfly. The butterfly is made from a punch from the Prima Engraver Paper and a Maya Road Canvas Mini Butterfly underneath

I used more of that Sparkly Prima Hello Pastel Fiber Trim under the envelope. Seriously, pictures do NOT do justice to this trim. It's way more sparkly in real life.

This is the back of the Teresa Collins Vintage Finds Chipboard Album which I covered with my Prima Engraver 6x6 paper scraps I had left from the inside of the album.
I used seam binding to tie on to the ring binder part of the Teresa Collins Vintage Finds Chipboard Album. It adds softness and color to the album!
