Vintage Treasures Tag and Pocket Album

Hello Craft Friends!

 Hope you are all doing great and finding time some time to craft. Thanks for visiting our Tres Jolie blog today. 

For my last project this month I'll be creating a Vintage style Tag and Pocket Album. I'll be using the April Tres Jolie Scrapbook kit. I really fell in love with this kit. The papers featured in this month's kit are from Studio Light "Vintage Treasures". You'll receive 6 sheets of 12x12 papers, some journal cards and even a element sheet of images to decorate your album pages. But there's more. You even get a fabulous set of A-4 papers and lots of punchout images! Tres Jolie has included these chipboard tickets, Finnibair Vintage Trinkets and Scrapyard Mechanicals Butterflies. And of course Prima marketing flowers! Here's a photo of the Scrapbook kit:

 To make this album I'll be using Graphic45 Tag and Pocket Album in Creme, from my crafty stash. But you could use any album you have on hand to make this. You will just have to adjust your measurements when cutting your papers. 

To start this project, I chose a variety of patterned papers from both the 12x12 and A-4 paper pad. I cut my papers to measure:

Front/Back Cover: 6x8 inches, Tags cut to 3 & 3/4 x 5 inches, page inserts cut to 5 & 1/2 x 7 & 1/2,  pockets cut to measure 5 & 1/2 x 3. The page inserts I cut to 5 & 1/2 x 7 & 1/2 inches. I did leave my pocket pages and tags  blank until I cut and covered all my other pages first. We can use our leftover scrap papers to cover our tags and pockets.

From my stash, I'll be using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs and Torn paper, foam dots, glue, scoring board, trimmer, Simple Stories Vintage Essentials ephemera, Rub'ons foam stickers-type keys and Captured Bits, Pink Paislee Switchboard stamp set.

Front Cover: I wanted to create a nautical look and I used several punchout images from the A-4 papers pad you receive in this kit! ( you're going to love them) I fussycut the compass and small fish images from the elements sheet. I took a Finnibair Mechanicals Steampunk gear (my stash)and glued onto my fish. See photo:

With foam dots I adhered the matching compass piece on the same compass image on the bottom of my front cover. I added a punched out sentiment at the top with foam dots. From my Simple Stories stash, I chose a postcard and inked along the edges with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. I adhered this to the center on the front cover, glued "Sailor" on the right side on my postcard. Then took one of the Prima flowers from this kit, applied some Distress Ink over the petals and glued in place at the bottom edge of my postcard. Here's some photos:

 A closeup:

 Outside middle:  I created a template Measuring 2 & 1/2 x 7 & 3/4 inches. with some cardboard laying it over top and traced with the metal plate will be.Using an xaco knife (my stash) I trimmed out the template including removing the space where the metal plate will show through. Here's a photo:

 Now choose a scrap paper and lay your template over top. Trace and cut as we did previously with out template. Glue your paper in place. Take the Vintage Treasures punchout and glue at the top. I punched out the tiny album image and trimmed it to slide inside my metal bracket.  Then take one of the Finnibair Mechanical Scrapyard Butterflies and glue towards the bottom. Here's a photo:

Now we are ready to start decorating our album pages.
