My take on the Ladies Diary from Graphic 45

Well, I just fell in love with the paper line.  Graphic 45's Spring release, The Ladies Diary is so rich with style and color, and of course, the vintage vibe that I just adore. Hope you were able to get some from Misty's shop, Mbtreasurista, she had the best prices online!  So, of course, I had to make a mini.  I had so much fun playing with laces and flowers, but about the fussy cutting.  Uuugh, I have such renewed respect for xannero1, a youtube goddess of fussy cutting.  But with G45 there is no choice, you must, must, must cut out some of those beautiful flowers.

So cut and cut and cut I did....on the cover.  Then I just pulled out some of my "scrappy happy" embellies and kept to the beautiful victorian feel.  From a beautiful filigree button, with a small rhinestone added and Prima flowers, pieces of emphera and a handmade stick pin.  I just love the colors and elegance of this line!
 I bound the album with some hand dyed seam binding, loosely threaded thru the holes, giving the album a soft heirloom softness.  Hope to make a charm to binding soon! One loaded with vintage look charms and beautiful beads...sigh.....

Of coure the inside has lots of envelope and tags and lace and ribbons...oooooh it was so fun playing with this gorgeous line!  Hope you have gotten your hands on some of this line from G45.  Can't waith to see what wonderful things you create. 

Have fun scrapping!
