Hi everyone! It's Tara with Secretbees Studio and I have a pretty new mini album to share! Vintage is such a great style for Christmas and the new Simple Stories Simple Vintage 'Tis The Season collection proves just that. All of the papers, embellishments, icons and ephemera are full of vintage beauty and gorgeous rich colors!
Because this collection invokes such a nostalgic feel for olden days, I decided to create a junque journal stuffed full of tags, ticket and postcards that have all been decked out for the holidays with this spectacular collection! I also layered in lots of the new Color Vibe Winter polka dots which adds even more charm!
The first part of the album opens up to reveal three pockets! One on the first page to hold tags, another behind the second page that is filled with beautiful ephemera and the third page which is the pocket and holds two beautiful cards! I let everything hang out and over the edges to give it that stuffed, 'antique' feel!
The second section opens up to two pages each charmingly decorated with bits and pieces from the collection, along with stickers, chipboard and decorative brads. The ticket embellishment on the last page is two different pieces layered together to give it a nice and thick effect!
There is also another hidden pocket in between the last page and the back cover. This one holds some larger pieces of ephemera that would work great for journaling your Christmas memories! I added a few more embellishments to each as well!
I have a tutorial for this adorable 'junque' mini album available on my YouTube channel so be sure and head over there to create one for yourself and your favorite holiday memories!
