Vintage Gramophone Mini Album

OK, so I couldn't wait any longer!  I have to share my vintage musical themed album...anybody guess it was going to be a gramophone?  Check this out, I just love how it turned out:

To create the mini album, I used cd's as a base for the pages.  As many of you will probably recognize, the paper I used was Graphic 45's "Curtain Call".  I decided to add a splash of red, and created all of the flowers using organza and satin fabric and Tim Holtz's tattered florals die.  I really like how the grunge and glitzy sparkle work together in this mini.  It's definitely my favourite so far :)

I will be selling a pattern for this little beauty, but I'm not quite finished writing it yet.  It should be done within the next couple of weeks.  I'll post a video on my YouTube channel showing all the details once it's done ;)

  8. Hi Monique, You're an engineer! Imagine that. My favorite artist made the most beautiful paintings of our historic homes etc. (Charleston, SC) I could only get prints as his originals were way out of my price range. But they are still lovely. I love your mini using the cd's. Oddly enuf, I just came across a batch of them and have been wondering how to bind them into a mini. And there you are! I love the way people find each other! I'm glad I came over to say hi. And I'll be back, Hugs Jess

  9. Hi Monique, This is simply gorgeous! See you later over at MAS
