Shabby Chic Mini album with Doily Dreams digital papers!
I have been so blessed to have won the amazing paper collection titled Doily Dreams. Designed by Carolyn from Teatime and Dolls. It is such a feminine and pretty collection, and each paper is shabby and beautiful!
I decided on making a mini album that was simple, but beautiful.
On the cover, I made a small shaker element using one of the ephemera pieces. It is a lovely birdcage, housing a vintage dress-form, covered in flowers.
To mimic the elements found in the paper line, I used flowers, butterflies, and birdhouses.
The sentiment scroll on the cover was inspired by the lovely script also found in the paper line.
The laces are also very elegant and match the papers perfectly!
The front and back inside covers have delicate touches with scrolled photo corners and blue pearls.
Each page features one of the lovely papers from this collection, and all have a little tuck spot for photos or your favorite notes.
To add a soft touch, I decided to make added tags in Vellum, with embossed sentiments. All page fronts also have vintage laces on the bottom borders. This kept is pretty, and soft.
Some of the ephemera from the collection is seen here also.
Of course a Shaker Tag had to be included. I used the same pretty papers, added golden tulle, pompoms, pearls, trims, a heart-shaped doily, and painted a beautiful birdcage in colors to match.
Even the back of this mini album is spectacular to look at.
I hope this has inspired you to make your own!
Visit Carolyn for this spectacular paper collection. You will love it!!
