Fairy Bell Shabby Chic Mixed Media Mini Album

 
 
I absolutely love Easter!   Spring is in the air, the weather is amazing, and all my cute little nieces and nephews are all dressed up and ready for fun! This year, I  decided to create a shabby chic mixed media album for my favorite Easter photos.  The concept for this mini was texture and lots of it!   I wanted it to stay soft and elegant, but tattered and frayed. 
 
 
My base album is the Prima Canvas album.   I selected the Prima Fairy Bell collection because it has lots of spring elements and maintains my Shabby Chic style. Nestled on each page, are a collection of Prima embellishments including flowers, canvas resist pieces, butterflies, trinkets, metal, and trims.  I also gathered some random supplies of misc.  lace, burlap, muslin, doilies, hymnal pages, and vintage book pages.   I kept everything in soft neutral tones, so that the colors of the Fairy Bell papers could become dominate.   
 
 
I used a Prima Vintage Trinket Closure across the side of the mini album to keep it secure.  I love how the bobbles dangle from the closure.  Look at all that yummy texture peek-a-booing from the edges of the pages.
 
 
Here are some photos of the inside of the album...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For the last page, I decided to create a tag that was topped with a canvas resist key and a beautiful seam binding bow.   This tag is the "KEY" to the album.  
 
 
 
The cover of the tag is the title  and the back has a list of numbers which represent each page, then the name of the person featured on the page. 

 
 

 
I hope you like this cute mini and I've given you some ideas on how to create your own beautiful album. This would make a perfect Bridal or Baby gift as well!
