Warning! Photo Heavy :-)
This week at The Kraft Journal we are spotlighting the Lunch Bag Kraft CD Sleeve envelopes that Babette carries in the Kraft Outlet store for our "My Favorite things" challenge. You guys know I like to make mini albums and these sleeves make perfect pocket pages. This album is absolutely chock full of KO products so rather than try to connect links throughout my description of the pages, I've just created a master link list at the end. See something you like? Just click on the link and it will take you straight to the item in the KO store. Everthing in bold italicized print is in the store.
My theme is "Collect" and this album is about my love of glass objects. Glass has fascinated me since I was a kid, especially smaller older pieces. I'll explain each collection as we go through the pages.
My bestie bloggie buddy Jan sent me some beautiful 7 Gypsies papers about a month ago and I decided they would be the perfect background papers for my album. They're all distressed on the edges and inked with distress inks.
Page two contains a pic of my small bottle collection. Our home is on land that's been in the family forever and all of these bottles were found around the property. There's another Tim Holtz Salvage sticker for Tincture Iodine. I thought that fit pretty well since most of these are medicine bottles. I used a Tim Holtz Hinge Clip to attach a Round Metal Edge Grungy Prim Tag that I added a 7 Gypsies Steampunk Time Rub-on to.
Page four has a pic of my glass giraffe collection. The small blown glass animals are my favorites, but they're tough to find. I'm kind of picky about my critters. They have to be made a certain way. I don't like the faceted stuff and the older the better. There's a Prima flower and some metal brads also on this page.
The last page includes another Jenni Bowlin Vintage Black Journaling tag and an Tim Holtz Adage Ticket held on with one of his paperclips. In the bottom corner I added another one of the Steampunk rub-ons to some Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and cut it out. I popped a metal label holder over the top of it.
I know this was a long post, but as you can see, there is a ton of stuff in this album.
You can get your entry for this week's "Favorite Things" challenge linked up by 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday for a chance at Top Three, Feature Me Friday, and our monthly $15.00 Kraft Outlet store voucher drawing. Everybody has favorite things so let's see yours.
