Here is an assortment of old mixed media bases
which have been collecting dust for years.
This week, I will be using one of the mini albums in a tin
Here is just one of the scraps bins I keep.
These are the remains of many days of crafting.
The tin came with an accordion fold insert,
and probably coordinating papers and tags (long gone).
Step one, was to decorate both sides of the accordion pull-out with scraps from my bin.
For step 2, I pulled out some of my Cavallini sticky notes and washi tape,
adding more layers to each page.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love polka dots?
Step 3 was to put dots on every page,
some were miscellaneous stickers,
others were ink dots made with a pencil eraser.
For Step 4 I used Tim Holtz paper dolls and this sticker book from
American Crafts designed by Maggie Holmes.
Embellishing this little journal is challenging,
no dimension allowed or it will never fit back into the tin.
I am going to end this post early and share closeups of the finished pages
and the decorated tin on my next Stash To Treasure Saturday.
Please leave a comment.
At the end of the month,
I will announce a random winner
of a special gift.
