Today I have created a mini album to share using the "Treasure" collection! 
I will show you step by step how to make this mini album.


First cut three pieces cupboard of 8 1/5 x 8 1/2 inch And two pieces
 8 1/2 x 11/5 inch

 Cut three pieces of the patterned paper to 10 x 10 inch and glue them on the three biggest pieces of chipboard



 Cut two pieces of 10 x 4 inch and glue them between the biggest pieces chipboard.

 Cut two pieces of 8 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch and use wet glue! Use your bone folder for the movable pieces


 Cut three pieces of 8 1/4 x 81/4 inch and glue them in the middle of the biggest parts of the mini album


 I used four little 4x4 canvas pieces and glued them in the middle part with strong glue. I like to use tacky glue for this part. 


Cut a piece of 6 x 12 inch and make score lines on the 4 and 8 inch parts.
After this, your mini album is ready to decorate! 


The front of the mini album.


I love to work with flowers from Petaloo, they are a great match with our treasure collection.
Don't be afraid to use the different colors between 



 Here on the left I used the piece that I cut last.I added a little fold out mini inside of the mini album. How neat is that? 



 I used the little fancy trims from Petaloo to close this mini on the inside.


I added photos of my daughter and her niece, my grandchild!
I love the aunt quotes that I found on the internet!




 I hope I have inspired you to create your own Spring mini album!

I'm so happy to share my Easter Home Decor project with the lovely Authentique "Treasure" collection and beautiful Petaloo flowers.


I started by painting and inking a tiered box set.  I cut strips of "Treasure" patterned paper for each box side and top and trimmed each box top with a stamped border.  


I created tiers of Easter eggs and beautiful Petaloo flowers with lots of "Treasure" diecuts and stickers words accents.


I cut the "Easter" letters from a "Treasure" diecut to create a banner.


The "Treasure" collection and Petaloo flowers combined so perfectly to create this project.  I added several lovely little fairies to join in on the fun.

So it's no secret that spring is in the air... 
Flowers are blooming and butterflies are everywhere.  

When I tell you that this picture does not do these gorgeous Petaloo flowers justice... I'm not kidding. These flowers are so perfectly beautiful and made out of burlap.  Amazing! 



I thought a layout would be the perfect way to share these beauties. I used the gorgeous Treasured collection.  It's one of my all time favorites since the pastel colors are just perfect for any shabby chic project. 


A few torn papers here and there and some stencil inc to compliment the gorgeous Petaloo butterflies. 




And a pic of my family to finish it off. 

And of course I had to add a few extra pics to show the texture of the flowers and how they work perfectly with the Treasured collection. 





I hope you enjoyed this fun project and as always, don't forget to...
Live, Craft, Inspire ...


Products Used:
