Hello, my lovelies! I am feeling a smidge girly today after my most recent Pinque Peacock project! Once upon a time, a girl had an awesome lunch with her previously aforementioned AWESOMESAUCE mother-in-law. That girl, just “happened” to sneak a few Panera coffee sleeves in her purse…(Hey…A girl has to craft!!!)
Enter today’s project…a coffee sleeve album.
This was challenging for me in many respects. First, I don’t **ducks and cringes and runs away** scrapbook. I don’t. I’m sorry. I love scrapbooks, but me, myself and I, I just don’t do it. All my photos are digital, and I prefer them that way. I also don’t like pastels. Please see anyone of my previous 100 posts about how pastels and I do not share a likeness for each other. To top it off, I don’t do mini’s often, and have never done an altered mini. There, I said it all out loud. Are you like me? Then prepare to be amazed, my friends! I took these plain coffee sleeves, and created this fantastically awesome girly album. I used a combo of adhesive fabric and pink floral papers from my stash. I used an accordion binding technique to bind the sleeves, and used iridescent bead trim and chiffon flowers to cover the binding. On the front,
I used a chiffon flower with a Pinque Peacock Pinque Floral button for the center, and a beautiful marble glass stickpin as an accent on the closure bow.
On each page, I use a coordinating stickpin as an accent and to hold memorabilia or photos. As I said, I don’t do albums, but I love this one!.....Do you? Would you love it to add to your collection? I would love for you to have it!
