* Vera Lane Studio: Flower Girls Mini Album


A warm welcome to my new follower, Linby!

Today is my DT day at Vera Lane Studio. I am sharing a mini album I made featuring two of Janet Klein's wonderful collage sets, the adorable Flower Girls and the quirky Off Vera set.
I love the collage sets - the pre-coloured images make for quick and easy cards, journal pages and even mini books - just print, cut and go!

This is the front cover of my mini album. I used green twine and wooden beads for the closure. The structure of the mini album is made with 350 gsm black card and the panels are made from 300 gsm white card, coloured with Distress Oxides, heat embossed and stamped (using AALL & Create stamps):

This is the inside of the mini album.
The middle page has an upper and lower folding flap and the right hand page has a small, fold out accordion.
This is the front of the accordion
The sentiments on the front and back accordion make up the nursery rhyme 'Mary, Mary, quite contrary',  which at surface value is about a pretty garden and is the purpose I intended, not the dark and gory tale of Tudor England!.

This is the back of the accordion:

The back cover:

This is the inside centre page with the flaps folded out. The bottom fold out reveals a little packet of sunflower seeds.

This is the back with the flaps folded outwards.

And finally, a not-so-sharp photo looking down on the album:

I had great fun making this!

How do you fancy owning your very own Vera Lane Studio personalised digi stamp?
