Vintage Summer Mini Album

Posted by Elena Olinevich

15 March, 2013 - ,

While the winter doesn’t want to leave my place, I’m looking through the papers and searching for those that coordinate well with some of the photos taken past summer.

Guess what collection I mean? Yes, quite right, Vintage Summer Basics



I used acrylic Brag Bag to create mini album, and you know it is quite ease to prepare the background using your papers and then just add details using your leftovers.

For the cover I cut scalloped border and cut a frame using my Big Shot machine



and after that I started playing with the photos and the papers,



Enjoy the watching


I’ve made some tags too, and what I like about the acrylic is that you can still see the back side papers as well



Some stamping and left overs again:




The reverse side of the tag



and some of the pieces where so cute, that I decided just add them as a tassel

Seredinasome changes

MixflowerJust love this serious face


and finally the back side of the cover



I hope you have enjoyed watching the photos of my Mini Album Brag Bag and you will find your way of using your Maja paper leftovers, as you see they are quite good for such projects
