This is the Pink Paislee Hope Chest Mini Album that I made using the NEW!!!!! Envelope Punch Board. I LOVE this collection! The vintage light pinks and just a hit of color throughout, so I paired it with some browns. The ephemera packs are chock full of goodness. I used several elements from FlamingoScraps . I must say I LOVE this board!! Fast and easy once you get the hang of it. Before I glued the envelopes, I put in a circle and a brad to tie some string around the envelopes to keep them closed . I used a few different sizes. I like the fact that you can make larger envelopes with the board as well.
On the cover, I used chipboard prepped with Gesso, then mixed some Tim Holtz Distress Paint ,Broken China, with heavy molding paste and used a brick stencil. Next came the Prima Chalk Edgers in Vintage Pink, Pastel Pink and Pastel Brown to add the different shadings around the cover. I cut some of the Prima SIIC Hexagon Clear to add just a little bling to the cover.
With this typewriter I used TH Distress Paint Black Soot and Silver. I used Pink Paislee She Art — Coffee Filter Sheets Words for the paper coming out of the typewriter.
For the front, I used the Prima Symphony Blend Amoroso Pink, Prima Sherwood Rose Partridge and then the Prima Chalk Fluid Edger Vintage Pink ,Prima Chalk Fluid Edger Pad – Pastel Pink. I used Prima Ceylon White Wedding to color the flowers by spraying them with water after you use the chalk edgers. By doing this, it blends the colors to make it look more natural. I also used a Maya Road Trinket Pins Crystals
To close this book up I used a Tim Holtz Buckle and some Prima Alencon Lace 1
Now on to the inside of the book...
I used a FabScraps Die-Cut Grey Chipboard Decorative Hinges
and used them as a place to put pictures or tags.
I wanted to tell you how I did this Maya Road Metal Trinket Clips Dress form I took some of the Prima Alencon Lace 1 and Fabri-Tac and just ruffled and scrunched it up.
Inside of each of the envelopes are tags as seen here...
