Mini for ScrapbookSusie

Hey Y'all! 

Here's a mini I just finished this weekend for my friend ScrabookSusie at

I've attached the slideshow below and the details are underneath the slide show.  Thank you for looking!!

Susie didn't give me any restrictions on this mini.  She told me her fav colors were purple and green and tye I went with the purple and green.  She also like I tried to give some vintagey touches in these colors.  I'm not sure I achieved it, but I tried!!

I used some chipboard for the covers and the inside is TP rolls.  I cut them in to the shape using a template I made myself.  This is the same template I used on a previous TPRoll Mini that Susie liked.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink in dusty concord, latte mat stack from dcwv...I think?, some of my vintage lace, made some flowers out of my white vintage lace, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, green feathers from them on clearance, and Prima bucket flowers that I've had for a long time.  I used Grommets from the sewing section for the hole reinforcers.  Recollections bling that comes in the that stuff!!  Some purple acrylic paint by folk art.  I used that on the cover and back and painted all the TP Rolls.  A lot of it doesn't even show, but I wanted it to be finished and no brown roll showing!  I used some left over packaging and embossed it to create a couple pockets on 2 different pages and I also made some tags.  I love this look!!  I really like the way it turned out.  I used a lot of different stamp sets...if you have a specific question about any of them let me know.  I used a lot of $1 bin stamps, Autumn Leaves Stamp Set, one Martha Stewart set and one KaiserCraft set.  I made a butterfly stick pin and added that to one of the flowers I made.  I also used some Purple Glimmer mist...then it stopped spraying in the middle!! so aggravated.

I am going to try and do better at making a list of supplies used.  I hope you can make heads or tales out of this post...maybe you can.  If not just look at the slide show!

Thanks so much for letting me ramble.  :-)
