My First Mini Album with Prima, Kaisercraft and Some Distress - Front

 Hiya everyone. Sorry I have been so absentee lately, but it's been mega busy last month lol. I can finally share one of my mega projects though yay! I Don't want to inundate you with it all at once so I will start today with the front cover. First off the reason I have been waiting to post this is the recipient hadn't opened it yet! lol. Now that she has we are off and running. I probably won't be able to tell you where every little thing came from now though as I only have the pictures to go by an who wants to make detailed list and interrupt the flow of crafting?  Ok Ok I know some people do but erm... I am not that organised lol.
Well I am sure you all recognise that die! Tim Holtz' Sizzix Caged Bird die :) I added some blue flatback pearls to cover the holes. I filled the holes with glossy acccents so they would stay put. The paper on the cover is from the new Prima Divine stack cut with the Sizzix Sizzlit Ribbon Insert. I think it's my new fave die lol. Can't wait to make some cards with it :). The yellow flower on the cage is one I won from prima :) The rest are I am Roses Flowers coloured with distress stains and spritzed with home made pearl mist.
The doily dies in the background are all various Lifestyle Crafts Dies. I have the mini doilies as well as various bigger ones. Love them! The lil bird is from Tim holtz (my die cut bird was not co-operating :(...) Idea-ology Adornments. Chain is just some cheap stuff off ebay as are the jump rings.
What have I missed? The words are Thickers that started out cream. I added a couple of coats of distress stain over the top to turn them white. The lace  I got off facebook :) It was cream and I coloured it with stains. Thats the only unfinished part of the book as I ran out. I will have to buy more and colour it and send it over so the book can be finished.
So that's it the cover of my finished mini album. Quite an achievement for me as I have never finished such a big project before :) This is my DT project for Eclectic Ellapu as well as it contains plenty of 'B' items. Bird, Bird Cage, Blue, Butterfly and Bead Spray. I thought there was one more but I forget what it is lol. All cutting was done with my Ebosser.
Happy Scrappin'
