Hi everyone! It's Tara with @Secretbees Studio and I have the sweetest mini album to share with you today! I have been wanting to make this adorable fishing kreel since I saw it three years ago in a magazine and the Simple Vintage Lakeside paper collection gave me the perfect opportunity to finally create it!
I used the coordinating Lakeside Basics papers to make the outside of the kreel and then used the gorgeous and lush embellishments of the collection to give it that lakeside feel. I added in a decorated pocket with tags along with hooks, colorful fishing line and richly detailed paper fish!
Inside is the real surprise! The mini album pulls out of the kreel for viewing but is still attached with a bit of ribbon and then flips open to reveal page after page of this stunningly beautiful collection! The patterned papers are the perfect background for layering on the striking and fabulous elements of chipboard, brads and stickers!
I added in some frames and raised the embellishments to accommodate pictures but the pages themselves are so pretty and detailed that photos aren't even necessary! Every time I look at this album, even I find some new detail I had not noticed before!
This collection is perfect for any lover of nature and the outdoors. There are not only fish and lake references but also woodsy, fauna and wildlife ones as well. Get your outdoor crafting on with this elegant and exquisite must have paper collection!
