Bound and Attached Mini

I have my step-daughters album bound and attached and now I must get to my favorite part: EMBELLISHMENTS!

But before I show you sneak peeks I want to point out that the wonderful Irene Tan aka "scrapperlicious" is having a give away for her book launch. I am a huge fan of Irene Tan and will channel her spirit and inspiration when I add all the embellishments and tags to Brittany's album. I sure hope you'll check out her generous give away here.
I am a super bad counterfeiter. I went to the scrap store today and picked two sheets of paper to go with this kit, including the "Number Grid." Ohhh no... will the scrap police stuff and cuff me?

This is Laura from Follow the Paper Trail stack the deck technique.
I also used her telescoping tags on the letter tags.
I used regular envelopes, but next time I do this I will make library envelopes. It will take more paper, but my tags can be thicker. A thicker tag means more embellishments and I love flowers, bling and page yummies.


  1. Looks like you are off to a great start. And what kit couldn't use a little add-on from the store - no rules against that, as far as I know, and it's sounding like a tempting idea to me too.

  2. I like those telescoping tags! Don't worry about adding to your kit - whatever gets the scrapping done :)

  3. Thanks for your kind comments :) - re: the distressing - I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Corduroy applied with his foam applicator tool and an unknown old black/gray ink pad applied directly to the paper edges - hope that helps!

  4. beautiful! can't wait to see it with all the embellishments!

  5. OH! This looks so exciting. It's looking absolutely fabulous!!!! I'll have to check out the rest! xoxo
