mason mini...

side view

I'm back again with a mini-album I've made using the new Crafty Secrets Button Up digital stamp set,  the new Sewing papers and Ephemera digi's available at the CraftyVintageGirl store. These digi's are choc-full of gorgeous images to play with! I used the pretty Mason Jar stamp to make the pages of my mini here today. What I love about these is you can re-size and re-colour them to suit your hearts desire!

After changing the colours to a pretty pastel blue and pink from the original black, I added all sorts of fun embellies; Stitching, a fabric yo-yo..distressed chipboard and those great scissors and spool from the ephemera pack.

I used some Glimmer mist and inks to add colour to the scissors and dimensional glue to give it a nice raised texture and glossy shine.. I'd love to own a pair of ornate scissors like these. Wouldn't you?

I fell head over heels for the sweet button cards and have used them a few times (here and here) and had to include one, complete with matching buttons. On the back of each jar is a measuring tape paper pocket to tuck some goodies into!

One of my handmade paper-clay frames sits on top of a pretty ornate frame, I fussy cut from one of the frames found in the ephemera. Some trims and a journal tag top off this mason jar page.


I just had to include this cute little birdie..stitched and with a dimensional wing..he matches quite well with the spool top.


A kraft envelope to tuck in some more goodies. I tried to limit patterns and colours and keep them all the same, repeating elements to get a more cohesive look to my mini..


A pretty little needle packet all dressed up pretty...


Vellum pocket holds a sweet sewing saying and a 3-D lid topped with pretty ribbons rounds out this little pocket project of mine..


One more shot of the layers, just because I love looking at the mis-matchedness of it all...
Have a wonderful weekend friends!

  3. Rebekah you mason jar album is stunning and I adore each page and how you added such pretty shabby appeal with the pastel colors and embellishments! It's so inspiring I just added it to our Pintrest Sewing board and as a sample in our online store.
