Hi there! I've been hoarding collecting various pieces from the Spellbinders Media Mixage line for quite some time now and I finally got around to putting them to good use :) I made a die cut chipboard petite mini album featuring beautiful patterned papers from the Pion design My Precious Daughter 6 x 6" collection along with small bezels from the Spellbinders Media Mixage line:
To create this album, I cut chipboard and Pion design papers using the Tim Holtz Artful Dwellings die, adhered the coordinating pieces together, stamped and embossed using the brick design rubber stamp from the Tim Holtz Ultimage Grunge set:
Then embellished with die cut chipboard hearts and butterflies which I altered using crackle and Martha Stewart paints:
I layered a little doily behind each die cut embellishment:
I wanted the bezels to appear a bit more shabby, so I applied Tim Holtz picket fence Distress paint, allowed to dry, placed a Tim Holtz sticker sentiment in each, then covered with Ranger Glossy Accents:
Here is what the front of the mini album looks like when not assembled:
and the back side:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Scrap Africa challenge which is to be inspired by the mood board shown below and I am also entering Hels, Sunday Stamper challenge where the theme is books
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my petite mini album. I've never made one this mini before and I think I'm hooked! 
Be Sweet ;)
