Hybrid Burlap Mini Album - by Tonya Gibbs

Hi everyone, I hope you are having an awesome weekend.  I made a little 6x6 burlap mini album in just a few hours, and thought I would share it with you today.  I used  Marion's Scarlet Digitals  along with some odd and end scraps from her Mad Tea Party and Nirvana printed lines.  I love how her printed lines and digi lines compliment each other perfectly! 
 
 
 
I added lots of yummy layers to the cover. A few months ago I shared a tutorial on how to make the flower, and I love how it coordinates with the roses in her papers.
 
 
For the inside I used one of Tim Holtz' binder mechanisms and 4x6 photo sleeves.
 
 
 
 
Pull out those punches and dies for projects like this.  They help to add a little interest to photo mats, and make great layering elements.
 
 
 
The journal pages are from some of Marion's Primrose printable. I fussy cut the rose and added it to the far right so it would match the rest of the papers.
 
 
I love how this file folder serves as a pocket on one of the pages.
 
 
Tags are a great way to add multi-level pages.  Tabs also offer interest sticking out of the margins.
 
 
I used some of the ATC sized note cards from her Nirvana collection to give an extra journal spot. 
 
 
 
The photo sleeves will offer protection for my photos, and give a nice clean finished look to the album.
 
 
This was a super fun project, and I just love it, when you can marry a bunch of itty bitty scraps, to create fabulous layers.   This little mini is going to make a gorgeous gift for one of my scrappy buddies. 
 
Thanks for stopping in today,
