Prima's Time Traveler Mini Album

Morning Friends,

This is the final post in a series of four posts featuring items I created for a 10 item, secret sister Goodie Bag Swap being hosted by Martica at  I know who my secret sister is so this has been a very fun swap for me to play along. 

To create this mini I used a 4 x 6 pad (48 sheets) of Prima's Time Traveler paper collection.  The size is perfect for 3.5" x 5" photos and its so easy to create pages.  Just adhere two pages back to back and embellish as desired.  I made pockets and created journaling cards by cutting the 4 x 6 in half, adding a eyelet and some jute sting to finish off the tag.  I inked all the tags and pages with Vintage Photo ink from Ranger by Tim Holtz. 

Here are close ups of each of the pages.  I hope you enjoy this fun and easy project:

Prima's Time Traveler Front Cover

First a little bit about the front cover.  I used Prima  flowers and one of their ornate frames, a few chipboard pieces and a metal button and pocket watch from Metal Works at Michaels.  I added a Tim Holtz clasp and crystal hanging charm, tied two types of ribbon and some jute sting at the closure rings and a few Tim Holtz clips throughout the pages. I finished off the bumper flowers and open fretwork leaves with some Diamond Stickles to sparkle things up a bit.  I used Prima's  Wired Thread in their Dusty color to make a few curly sprigs for the flower clusters.  The vintage bridal picture is compliments of my sweet friend Linny, who forever keeps me laughing and giggling.  :)

I colored the frame using the black then silver Wink of Luna metallic pens, then sprayed it with Prima's Color Blooms in Worn Leather to antique it a bit.  Came out lovely don't you think?  Lastly I finished off the cover with a pretty stick pin and hung the crystal charm.

Since all the inside pages are expected to be used directly as photo mats, I limited embellishments to fairly flat items.  On the pocket pages, I made a few tags per pocket and added a small cluster of embellishments. I distressed all the pages, tags and chipboard with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz. 

Let's have a closer look at the inside pages:
