Pieces of Me & Tammy

This holiday season I received many requests for custom paper bag albums, and here are two that I made for a sweet customer, Vannie.

First, "Pieces of Me". Vannie gave me a wonderful list of ideas to work with, and here is where those ideas took me. The gorgeous papers are all black, cream, and white - vintage-inspired, and flocked with a gorgeous black velvet texture. I hand made all of the flowers from faux-silk fabrics with amazing shimmer and sparkle. I added paper leaves, velvet ribbons, text in two of my favorite fonts, extra pocket pages for more photos and journaling, and lovely lace. I used vintage seam binding and dozens of other pretty ribbons on the binding. I love how eclectic, unique, and beautiful this album turned out to be!

Second, I made a more simple album - "Tammy". This little girl's album features brown, pink, turquoise, and lime green papers full of sparkle, pink hydrangeas, pink rhinestones, and gorgeous polka-dotted ribbons. I'm sure her mom will love filling it with memories and photos.
Thank you for looking! Tessa
