I ran some burgandy Distressed Stickles along the torn edge of the matting background.
Then added this My Mind'e Eye rub-on to the Tim Holtz journaling ticket that was just the right size.
I like the large chipboard letters and decided to cover them with coordinating paper.
Adhered the paper to the back of the chipboard letters

Everyone who attended our NSD Crop May 2nd received a Bare Elements Mini Purse Album in their goody bag. I know I posted a picture of how I decorated the outside, but several people asked to see the inside also. So I thought I would post pictures of each page and pass along a few tips to remember when decorating your own.
I started by using shimmer mist and spayed each page. I used a Paper towel to spread an even coat across the whole page, including the handle. You can also use a foam make-up sponge.
On the next page I used two of the Bazzill cardstock circles. To avoid thickness in the album I used mostly pens and stamping for my embellishments. Rub-ons would work great also.On the next page I used another Bazzill cardstock color. Notice I used some Magic Mesh behind a few of the photos, but always placed it toward the outside edge of the album.
I ended the album with patterned paper. It's hard to tell in this photo, but I used a glitter pen to accent the design in the paper.
I know I told you to select 3 Bazzill colors and you only see two colors on my album. I used two sheets of the same color. Later I thought it would have looked better with a different background color on the front and back covers.
If you didn't attend the crop but would still like to buy one of these mini albums, we still have a few left.

I adherred it to the paper at an angle then flipped it over and trimmed off the excess.
I love those silvery metallic rub-ons, so I started adding them. They are not kidding when they call these press-ons. Light rubbing is all that is needed and they tranfer easily.
In this close-up you can see how silvery the clear overlay is that I trimmed down. It was a full 12x12 sheet. I'll probably use the rest on the page that will go across from this one in my album.
I took a bright pink felt flower and added stickles for dimension.
I punched out a scalloped circle from the remains of pink pink cardstock and ran it through the Sizzix big Shot in the Cuttlebug embossing folder, then inked it to layer under the felt flower.

I love this diecut paper from Making Memories. This was not what I had originally planned to do with this paper, but you know how that goes sometimes once you start on a project. I pulled out scraps from the pink and green files to put behind the openings, added the Prima flowers and used a slickwriter to journal on the clear overlay.
