Graphic 45 Midnight Masquerade Mini Tag Album

Hello Crafty Friends!

A couple of weekends ago I visited a local crafty store to pick up a few sheets of each of the new Graphic 45 releases.  My plan of a few purchased sheets changed as soon as I saw the Midnight Masquerade collection.  A few sheets turned into the purchase of the 12x12 pad...and the 12x12 solids and patterns pad...and the tags and pockets.  I. Regret. Nothing.  :)

Afterward I visited a dollar store to purchase a purple boa and purple beaded trim.  Perfect matches!  That evening was our monthly Girls' Crafty Night and I brought the paper pads, the dollar store finds, Spellbinders dies (Tammy Tutterow's Shortie Tags and Victorian Bow) and Cheery Lynn's Mini French Pastry doily die.  At the end of the evening the album was almost completed!  It was a snap to put together and I love how it turned out.  Overall, I guess you could say it was an awesome crafty day! 

Below are photos of the album from beginning to end.  I hope you enjoy it as much I I enjoyed making it!  
 A lot of fun fussy cutting was used on the album in addition to foam tape, Stickles and gems.  The feathers look great behind the beautiful masquerader.

 The next two tag faces are below.  Throughout the album the tag faces coordinate with each other.
 The postage stamps are gorgeous.
 In the center of one of the fan flowers are beads removed from the beaded trim. 
 Stunning colors in the collection!
 The doily die cut is a wonderful fit behind the mask.  
 Scrap pieces were cut using the Shortie tags edge trim and adhered to each tag bottom edge.
 Look at those luscious purples...
 Of course I had to use another feather...
 The die behind the mask is the smaller die from the Victorian Bow dies set.
 Such imagery and details in this collection.  
 The last tag face...and I happily fussy cut many flowers for it.
 The finishing touch was the ribbon/trim bundle around the tag ring and the bejeweled embellishment.
 A fun, wee tag album!
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
