Altered Manila Folder mini scrapbook - part 2

Welcome Delightful friends and family for Part Two of the Altered Mini Scrapbook made from manila folders!


Here is the inside page with the birth information and a Scripture from Psalm 139:17.  I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the wording which I made on the computer and printed out on Neenah bright white card stock.  The die cut "Girly Girl" is from My Minds Eye and so is the designer paper.

This page was created using the Distress Stains (see part 1) and I used an A2 envelope (sealed and cut on the side to fit a #8 Manila Tag from Ranger that I've prettied up)  I forgot to take a pic of the tag (doggone!) but it's has a spot for journaling on it.  I've used the Dylusions stamps (the little flowers you see) using the stamp off technique and I've used the Distress Stains again, applying right onto the rubber. The photo corners are an EK scallop photo corner punch and I've used Distress Ink (worn lipstick) on the white envelope.  The lace is from KaiserCraft and the ribbon is American Crafts.

Next two pages:

Left side: I made a spot for a photo using a Spellbinder Nestablilities Die (Lacey Circles); the sentiment and flowers are a rub-on by Fancy Pants and the little bling is a rhinestone butterfly that was in my stash. The designer paper is My Minds Eye and the white card stock is the Neenah brand.

Supplies on this side are: Stamp: Itty Bitty from Unity; Cuttlebug (Provocraft) Embossing Folder; Designer Paper MME; Lace - Kaiser Craft, Adhesive Pearls, Want2Scrap (from Taylored Expressions KI kit); The tab was made from the extra manila folder, distress stained and die cut from a Sizzix Alterations (Tim Holtz) Bracket die

I also used Distress Ink to blend around the die cuts (lacey circle and bracket).

Well, that's it today for our "bite-sized" post.  I'll have Part 3 later, not sure if it will be today or not, I'm taking the grandkids to the fish hatchery.  We are having a beautiful spring day here on the northcoast and we all are experiencing a little cabin fever!  Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment, it's very encouraging!

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.  Psalm 37:25
