Unforgettable Part 2 – Philippa McCray
Hi there Magpies!
This month I’ve been using the beautiful Unforgettable collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio and today I’m sharing a tag book/mini album. I take a lot of photos that I don’t necessarily wish to devote a whole layout to so a tag book or mini album are a great way to use mini photos and record my memories.
I started by looking through my dies and decided on an eight petal flower shape for my pages. This is not an easy shape to machine stitch around as I discovered, hence why only one page has machine stitching! I cut shapes in two different sizes from a variety of the papers
Just to mix things up, I also cut the shape from postcards picked up on my trip and used a couple of the tags cut from the Story Teller paper which I topped with a portion of the flower shape.
I made a pocket on the machine stitched page to hold a few small photos.
On another page I made an accordion style fold out secured with a mini clip so I could add photos front and back.
I decorated the pages of my tag book/mini album using die cuts from the Ephemera Pack, Clear Stickers and Accessory Stickers along with colour coordinated threads, a few enamel dots and bits and pieces from my stash. I love the tactile quality and chunkiness of a little book!
The ring embellishments were made using tassels from the Tassel & Bow pack, handmade paper beads and some beautiful vintage beads from my collection. Just for fun I added a piece of pom pom trim and some ribbon.
I love the way it turned out!
Next month I’ll be back with some more projects using a new collection. Until then Happy Scrapping!
