Another Mini Album

 I love how this mini turned out.  I have really been enjoying making the mini albums.  This one is a paper bag album. 

 The flourish is a sizzix die.  I used chipboard, painted it black, applied crackle accent, and then used some gold rub n buff.  As you can tell I used some Tim Holtz corners, hitch post, and chain.
 The glitter frame is from Making Memories.  The lock and key is a sizzix die.  I used gold embossing powder on the key.  I painted the lock black and used some black embossing powder.  I didn't cover the whole lock with embossing powers so it would look a bit distressed.
 I love the Tim Holtz alteration dies.  I painted them black and used some rub n buff.  I picked up a bunch of shipping tags at Staples.  I used distress ink on the edges and to stamp my images.
   The little key was painted black and then crackle accent was applied and then some rub nn buff.  I also used rub n buff on the flower.  I made the stick pen from some crystals and pearls from my stash.
 I even made a little fold out that fits in the pocket.
 I used a border cut out from my stash and used some more tags.
 I cut a dollie into four sections and applied rub n buff.  Does anyone else love the Tim Holtz dies?  I think I am slowly collecting them all.  I adhered the bottom and one side of the bird cage so a picture or tag could be slipped in behind.  I used gold embossing powder on the bird cage and added a small rose from I am roses.
 I painted the lock and key with black paint and applied a small amount of rub and buff. 
 Tim Holtz on the edge die, I just love this one.  Once again black paint with rub n buff and some I am Roses flowers
 Another hitch was used on the back cover for the closure.
Two tags are in every bag.  One side has a bold pattern for a picture and the other is plain for journaling or pictures.
