Going for Baroque Mini

Very excited to share some photos from my first full mini album!!!! I created this album using the Graphic 45 Le Romantique paper collection and the Tim Holtz Baroque die. I also used cuts from my Cricut Sentimentals cartridge. LOVE that cartridge!

Steam Punk'D

Here is the mini page that I completed for the mini page swap that was hosted by Becca at Becca's Crafy Corner. Becca was very kind to step in to host the swamp when Bona needed to take some time away from scrapping and YouTube. 

Thank you so much Becca for hosting! I had a blast and really enjoyed making this page for all the ladies in the swap. 

The swap paper was Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante. I chose the Victorian Transformers paper. I didn't want to cover up those lovely corsets so I tried to embellish the page in a way that only enhanced the paper. I edged the page with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Rustic and embellished the page with Gadget Gears from Tim Holtz that I dabbed in metallic paint and edged with black soot; a butterfly cut from the design paper; some teal pearls; and a label stamped with the word imagine. The gears are not attached in the middle, so a photo can be easily tucked away behind them.

On my pocket page, I created a corset pocket :) that I laced with black loopy ribbon. I also created a lollipop flower with black satin, black lace and some shimmery ribbon from Michaels. For the center, I cut a gadget haired lady from the design paper and covered her with glossy accents. The butterfly was cut from the design paper and edged with Black Diamond Stickles. There's also a white feather.

Here are some close ups of the tag:
