Collecting Vacation Memories With The Scraps Of Elegance May Kit~Cape May Holiday

Creating with the Scraps Of Elegance May Kit~Cape May Holiday has been such a Seaside Dream!!
I just love all the wonderful Prima and 7 Gypsies Elements to this kit, and they were perfect for putting together this Shabby meets Cottage Chic Mini Album:


I covered a chipboard album with distressed canvas and then layered in distressed and sand paste painted Prima paper from the kit. 



I then layered in a Tim Holtz Clock that I die cut and distress painted, and then broke pieces of balsa wood to create a wood background and layered on the stash sentiment. The cheesecloth, Reneabouquets Butterflies, and sail boat were from the kit, the capiz shells and trim were from the Embellishment Add On, and the teal flowers were from the Floral Add On. I added in French Script Texture Roses from my Etsy Shop as well as a real shell, turtle charm and glass bottle with hand tinted glitter glass from my stash.


Here you can see all the trims, textures and dimension of my album.


The first page features a pocket with 3 double sided tags and journal spot, a Prima Ticket attached with a Tim Holtz  Metal Clip, and textured trims, a sea shell and nautical button.
The Secon Page Features a spot for journaling or small photos, a Tim Holtz chain and clip, some sweet Prima and Petaloo flowers, and a tuck in pocket with a double sided 7 Gypsies Journal Card.


Here you can see all the tuck in pieces.


The 3rd Page features burlap photo spots, a real sea shell, some Tim Holtz Brads topped with Prima Crystals and wrapped with twine, and Prima ticket tuck ins.
The 4th Page Featurs a photo spot, a small burlap pocket with lots of sweet tuck ins, and the page is actually sewn to open up into a pocket where you can add treasures, momentos, small photos, and journaling.
There is a fussy cut globe hang tag as well.


The 5th Page features a photo spot, cheesecloth and a Petaloo flower.
The 6th Page features a journal spot and photo spot, more cheesecloth and flower.
There is a fussy cut fish piece that I turned into a hang tag as well.

The 7th Page features a hand sewn  6 page bookelet, trim, and little paper rolls that have been distressed and inked, tied together with brown rope trim then topped with a tiny seashell, and sea turtle charm.
The 8th Page features a burlap pocket with 2 double sided tuck ins, and a little Prima clothes pin for hanging photos or journaling.


Here you can see all the tuck ins and sewn booklet.


And here is the back of my album finished out in canvas and Prima paper.

If you are dreaming of vacation days on the beach, or just need to scrap some of those past beach memories, then this kit is the perfect one to help you achieve that goal!! Thank you for taking a walk with me along the shore, now I have to get back to the real world, and do some cooking and cleaning-lol!  Until next time! Hugs ~Renea
