Vintage Telegram Mini Album

Marion just released a new Mini Album Printable called Vintage Telegram.  If you love her Romance Novel Line with Prima Marketing, you are going to love this printable.  It is a mini album that compliments that line. You can purchase the kit at

I couldn't wait to play with it, and I think it is an all time record for me - From printing to decorating - I created this mini in 8 hours.  WOW - can you believe it. 

I used the Tim Holtz vintage typewriter die for the cover.  I used utee and gold ink to give it that brass look.   Then I used several of my Spellbinders Grand Caliber Labels dies to make pockets and die cut insert pages.  Love how they add a little interest to the book.  Below are some of my favorite pages in the book.  

Here is a video of a page by page walk through of the mini.

Thanks for stopping in today,

  1. Enjoyed your video - How did you bind it? Loved the laced up tie that I could see. Also, you had some shiny embellishments towards the end (Speedy Telegram page) that looked like acetate lace - did you make them or were they bought like that? Always up to new things and that is why it is fun to watch you create, thanks.

  2. I coptic stitched the binding, then went back and wove some seam binding to just give it a little pizzaz. The Lace/bling on the speedgram page is actually some Prima bling it is old. But I think they have something similar to it at Michaels. I'm so glad you enjoyed the mini.
