Vintage Play Album


Hello friends!
I made a fun children themed album this week using a mixture of vintage style paper scraps from October Afternoon paper.


Most is from the Five and Dime line.
You can find the 8x8 size paper pad at Hobby Lobby.


I love the paper doll patterned paper from  this line.
I cut out the 2 children for these pages and adhere them at the bottom so that the photos will slide underneath them.


I hand cut paper roses from one of the patterns
to give the book more layered elements.


All of the paper bag albums that I make measure 6x6.
It's a really great album size for a gift.


To make my albums look more aged, I always ink the edges of the pages with Vintage Photo distress ink.


This album is listed here on ebay.

Wishing you a wonderful day, Lindsey

HELP! I read your blog every day and I just love this album you put together with October Afternoon papers. However, I can't find OA scrapbook papers locally in AZ. Any suggestions? I really need the vintage sheet with the T-strap shoes, record player etc. Amazon doesn't have it either. Please help me find this paper.
Thanks,
Loretta
