The Kaisercraft "Lush" patterned paper on the third pages is not as WILD as the other ones I have used in the book...which of course called for a lot more embellishments! The decorative photo corners are transparent overlays from Tattered Angels...called "Glimmer Glass". These photo corners are from their "Regal" line.The Gypsy Girl (notice the suitcase she is carrying...you think she is running away from home, off on a big adventure?) is layered on top of some patterned paper and another piece of ephemera from 7 Gypsies.
Prima flowers are adhered near the page tab...and the clock was found in a corner of the Scrapbook Barn embellishment drawer.
Then again...maybe the Gypsy Girl is just going to the Laundromat.
The second pages I kept a bit simpler... The pages are covered with patterned paper from the Kaisercraft "Lush" line with a border and a line of black rhinestones layered vertically along the edge of one side.
I used a map, from the 7 Gypsies Ephemera pack...trimmed with a bit of musical note rub-ons and a key.
My DH asked me if there was a meaning behind the map, key and musical notes on the pages..."No, it's just cool stuff." I guess you have to love playing with paper to "get it".
This album was so fun to design...with the stunning patterned paper, the great ephemera,colorful ribbon and a drawer full of embellishments, it came together very quickly. Every corner and edge was inked with Tim Holtz "Wild Honey" distress ink
I used a circle punch on the 7 Gypsies Ephemera to cut out the "tab" part of the album...
The book rings were embellished with pink, aqua, gold and black ribbon, with a tag and key added in...
In the center I layered some corrugated cardboard, "gypsy" ephemera hot pink velvet flowers with a pearl head pin and a token.
YES... another album...and this one is REALLY cool. I used a Kaisercraft Beyond the Page is a "tab"album... The Kaiser patterned paper I selected is from their "LUSH" line...very yummy paper...and it's double sided. You are digging the colors already aren't you?
It gets even better...7 Gypsies Ephemera!
With all those amazing goodies...NOW are you interested in seeing "another"album?
From the back porch of the house you can see the beautiful English garden. We can take a stroll through the day lilies, lupin and prim roses out to the gazebo...you can't see the garden? Close your eyes and use your imagination...now can see it?
At Scrapbook Barnwe have sold out of this Kaisercraft Beyond the Page house book. BUT... we are getting some more in soon. This book would be great made up with the Graphic 45 Alice in Wonderland Halloween paper...a haunted Alice house...with Alice, the white rabbit and the Mad Hatter looking out the front windows...now I've got you using your imagination!
