Kaisercraft 75 Cents Mini Album

Monique Mini Albums

Today we’d like to share this gorgeous mini album made by yours truly 🙂  I made this mini using possibly the most beautiful paper I have ever had the pleasure to work with – Kaisercraft’s 75 Cents.  The muted teal blue color is just to die for!

As usual with most of my mini albums, I adhered leather around the spine of the album and added strategically placed 3/16″ Bronze Eyelets from our shop to add a little interest.  I then added draping Bronze Curb Chain (#CH481-B) crisscrossing the spine with a few tibetan charms and beads hanging from the chain.

On the front cover, I added a large layered flower in the lower left corner balanced with a large Bronze Corner Metal Filigree Embellishment (#808-B) in the upper right.  The flower combines a crocheted doily with coffee dyed paper flowers and bronze metal filigree flowers (Items #283-B and #CAP040-B).  Tucked under the flower is another Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#678-B) in place of leaves.

Throughout the mini album, there is a smattering of crocheted flowers and doilies, coffee dyed flowers and metal filigree embellishments among all the the pockets, flaps and pages.  On the page below, Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#806-B)  was layered with a small crocheted flower, two small metal filigree flowers (Items #288-B and #CAP040-B), and an SS20 Clear Flat Back Glass Rhinestone to finish off the edge of the flip-up flap on the left page.  Two small metal filigree embellishments (Items #677-B and #CAP040-B) and another SS20 Clear Flat Back Glass Rhinestone were added to the tabs of all the tags on each page.

I absolutely love how these little “door knockers” on the waterfall of the page below turned out.  To make these, I just layered three different metal filigrees from our shop (Items #288-B, #CAP040-B and #CAP827-B), and then used a Tim Holtz Mini Fastener with a bronze jump ring to secure the layers together.

I left the inside covers mainly plain, but added a pocket with a decorative edge die cut using the Perfect Bracket Edge die from Memory Box.
