I am already in preparation for Christmas season. Making samples for upcoming Christmas craft fairs in Italy . What about you ? Are you already in Christmas crafting ?
Today*s project is very simple mini album made with Graphic 45 papers, 12 Days of Christmas. Hope you like it.

Vintage tags

Welcome to my blog.....
I love everything vintage. The tags I am sharing are from my vintage tag collection. I like to use variety of stamps and incorporate them to tell a story or just make a perfect picture. You can even make beautiful greeting cards with them. I will put pictures in the back of my tags or just add them to my scrapbook pages. Even if they don*t have punched holes I like to call them tags.
I used Distress inks for the background.
Prima and Tim Holtz embellishments.
And stamps from various companies.

I liked Tim Holtz background stamps for my tags

For this tag I used Tim Holtz and
 LaBlanch stamps and Tim Holtz

For the tag I used Tim Holtz  and Deep
Red stamps and Prima embellishments.

Tim Holtz and Deep red stamps
were used and Tim Holtz button.

And the last one I made with
LaBlanche and Tim Holtz

Memories In A Box

       Welcome to my blog.
It is such a bad weather here in Norway today. To stay inside and make new ideas for upcoming projects. So many ideas. I just don*t know where to start first, with mixed media or classic scrapbooking.

The project I am sharing today is made with Prima embellishments and papers. The idea for the mini album was to make separate pages with lots of 3d embellishments. Sometimes I just wish to put lots of 3d embellishments on the page but mini albums look to thick. So why not to make a mini with separate pages where you can put lots of embellishments on it and store it in a beautiful matching handmade box.

Handmade chipboard box , covered with beautiful
 Prima papers
Embellished with Prima flowers and embellishments.
Also used stencils to decorate the front of the box.
The inside of the box with chipboard pages.
Some of the chipboard pages.
They are flip up pages so room for more pictures.
On this picture it shows how the page looks when open.
