K & Company Mini Album for a Special Friend Part Three

Hi Everyone

Thanks for the comments I personally received about this mini, they mean a lot to me and once my friend receives the mini I’ll try to let you all know what she thinks of it.

As previously mentioned in the first parts there are video’s of this mini that can be found on my YouTube channel, my channel can be found HERE

So here are the next pages from this mini

019 For this page I covered the lunchbag with another of the designs from the collection and then sprayed it with Antique Brass glimmer mist. I then made a two card slider envelope and covered it with further papers from the collection, finally I added some prima flower, some with bling in the centre and the larger ones with brads so that I could add some cording for the closure. (If you would like to know how to make the slider envelope then please either leave me a comment on here or email me and I’ll try to get it done for you) You can see the slider in action on the YouTube video.

As with all the previous pages I covered the bag with paper and then sprayed it with Old Lace glimmer mist, I then took a coordinating paper and torn the corner to make a pocket for the page and inked the torn edge with Rusty Hinge distress ink, to decorate the pocket I added some 3D butterfly stickers and a text sticker from the K & Company collection. For a place for photo’s I took a mini envelope and sealed it shut then I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Brackets On The Edge Die to cut the top off, covered it with paper and inked with Rusty Hinge distress ink then tied some organza ribbon around it. I then took two pieces of card and cut to fit the envelope and cut the same edge on the top, I added a strip of paper and inked the edges and stamped the journaling spot with Rusty Hinge distress ink. Finally I added a bling butterfly to the envelope for added decoration.

022

Here is the mini envelope out of the pocket.

For the bag base I covered it with paper and sprayed it with Old Lace glimmer mist, I then tied some trim around it and added a Tim Holtz Trinket pin and a charm. For the photo’s I took a tag sticker and adhered it to a piece of folded card and added crystal lacquer to the butterfly and stamped a journaling spot on the back with pumpkin spice versamagic.

024

Here is a closer look at the tag out from behind the trim

025

As with the previous set of bag bases I adhered them so that they made a pocket and then made some tags for it. I covered them with papers and inked the edges with Rusty Hinge distress ink and stamped the journaling spot with Hint of Pesto Versamagic.

027

For this side of the flap I did the same as the other side but used a different sticker for the card.

028

For this page I covered it with paper and sprayed it with Old Lace glimmer mist. I then made a four fold card and added papers and stamped some journaling spots with Hint of Pesto versamagic. I also inked all the edges with Forest Moss distress ink, finally I took a sticker from the same K & Company collection and stuck it to some paper, cut it out and added crystal lacquer to the butterfly, then once dry I added it to the folded card. To add the card to the page I used a spring clip that I also added paper to.

029

Here is the card detached from the page

030

Again to start the page I covered it with paper and sprayed it with creme de cocoa glimmer mist. I then made a eight flap photo and journaling card and covered some of the flaps with papers. I didn’t add any journaling spots so that my friend can decide where she would like them. Finally I inked the edges with Night Sky versamagic ink and added a butterfly sticker to the front.

031

Here is the card with four of the flaps opened.

032

As with all the pages I covered the bag with paper and sprayed the page with Creme de cocoa glimmer mist. I then took some coordinating paper and cut a decorative edge with the Tim Holtz Alterations Ornate on the edge die and added an epoxy sticker from the K & Company collection and a 3D butterfly sticker. To add to the pocket I made three ticket tags, I inked the edges and stamped the journaling spot with Night Sky versamagic ink, for two of the tags I added a butterfly sticker from the collection and for the final tag I added a Hot off the Press butterfly brad.

033

Here is a closer look at the tags.

034

After I covered the page with paper and sprayed it with Pearl glimer mist I cut a photo mat with a Nellie Snellen multi die then inked it with versamark and embossed it a couple of times with glitter ultra thick embossing enamel. I then added it to the page but made sure the I only stuck it in the corners so that I could add some little handmade tags behind as a place for journaling. Finally I added some Prima flowers with bling in the centre and sprayed a Tom Holtz adage ticket with Meadow Lush cosmic shimmer mist and attached it with a spiral paperclip.

035

Here you can see one of the two tags a little better.

036

For the final small flap I did the same as the inside of the first flap, covered it with paper and sprayed it with pearl glimmer mist, then made a library pocket and a folded photo & journaling card that I covered with paper and ink and stamped with Stormy Sky distress ink. To finish the pocket I added a 3D sticker from the K & Company collection. I then adhered the finished pages to the book cover.

037

Here is the little photo card out of it’s pocket.

038

So here is one final look at the finished mini from the side so that you can see the fibres and charms.

I would love to know what you think of this mini, I am usually not 100% happy with anything I make but this is one of the first ever projects that I’ve done that I’m really happy with!! The only thing is the I’m really nervous about what my friend will think of it as she is one amazingly talented crafter!!!!!!!!!

Thanks as always for stopping by! I truly do appreciate the fact that you choose to come and stop by my little blog. Speak to you again soon
