Inspiration Photo Pocket Mini Album

Hello Everyone,

Sorry it's been a while since I last posted on here. It's been one crazy month.  I just wanted to share a project that I am doing for a class at my LSS.  Thank you Kinderstampo for the great template idea.  This project uses the new line by BasicGrey - Out of Print.  I love all the different patterns come together and compliment each other.  I must say that this is my most favorite line that BasicGrey has come out with yet.  There are many different techniques on making your own flowers with ribbon, satin material, tissue tape, old sewing pattern paper, bottle caps and also hand made stick pins.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did creating it.  If you are interested in attending this class, please visit http://treasuredmemories.typepad.com/shop/ or contact them at (780) 414-1540.  The class is scheduled for August 13, 2011 from 11:00am - 5:30pm.  If you are unable to attend but would like a kit, that could definitely be arranged.  There are only 10 spots available.  This class comes with everything you need except for ink pads and the Helmar 450 Quick Dry glue.  Enjoy and thanks for watching!

This is a flower made from satin material and elastic jewellery thread, topped off with a flower from  Karlas001 Etsy Store.

This is the first page of the album with 2 tags inserted in the pocket.

This is the embellishment used for page one from the Recollections line.

This is page 2 and 3 of the album and there is a flower made with the Tim Holtz tissue tape with a bottle cap as the centre.

This is page 4 and 5 of the album.  Stamps are from the Out of Print line by BasicGrey.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I would love to hear your comments on this project.
