Can you tell by my project how much I loved the stamps and the paper??? It's pretty apparent isn't it.  I can't tell you how much fun I had making this album and album holder.  I have become quite addicted to shopping the thrift stores in my area for unique objects to transform into new and useful things.  This window box is one of them.
Here is the album cover for my mini album.  It is made with envelopes and a chipboard cover and back.  I have been watching some videos on how to make albums with lots of embellishments and not have them end up looking like   V    So I think I have it down and am good to go.
All the envelope have purple card stock inserts for pictures.  Plus there is a pocket on each of that side of the album that holds tags from the paper collection. 
I had so much fun coordination previous stamp releases with this paper.  Notice the birdhouse and the birds and butterflies. 
This picture shows you the envelope tags.  The flowers were so fun to make.  I used smooch glitz crystal on them for sparkle.  Would you believe I used a whole bottle plus a whole bottle of Crystal Stickles on this project...Yes I do love my bling!
This show you how I used some of the stamps that come in the set in the album
Hope you enjoyed viewing this project.  It took me about three weeks in-between my other Design Team Commitments to complete.  I enjoyed this so much and am finding myself wanting to take my art in a different direction.  I picked up something today that I am just itching to try.  Maybe next week it will be revealed-it depends if what I designed in my head really works out-that's the fun in creative inspiration!!!
