Ephemera's Vintage Garden - Loving Sweetness Project #3

Hello, my friends!

I'm back today to share my third and final project using the beautiful  "Loving Sweetness" kit 
from Ephemera's Vintage Garden
  You can find it HERE.

This is a photo heavy I'll try to not make it word heavy as well! ;o)

This printable kit makes a wonderful 4" X 6" journal.
Aside from six gorgeous pages, the includes a couple of bonus pages.
I printed each of the six pages, and then printed a bonus page on the back. 
I have not done double sided pages worked like a charm!
I added plain cardstock for the front and back cover, along with three pages throughout the book.
This gave me an empty space to fill with several of the "Art Bits" from the collection.
Everything has been distressed with both my Distrezz-It-All and Iced Spruce Distress Ink.
Okay...kind of word heavy after all but not too bad! lol 

Every mini album needs a box.
I made this matchbox using my Cricut Fancy Boxes Cartridge.

The inside of the box needed to be decorated too.

Here's the mini album beside the matchbox.

A piece of the ephemera forms a pocket for a couple of tags.
These tags match the collection and are one of Debbie's Freebies.

Here's the first printed page.

The page on the left is one of the bonus pages.
The right is embellished cardstock.

The left has a little belly band for some great tags.

This is what the entire bonus page looks like.
There are several of these throughout the book.
I only took a picture of one.

On the right is the great pocket from the kit.
It holds a couple of great journaling tags.

Finally, the back cover!

I hope you enjoyed seeing this sweet mini album!
This kit is LOADED with so much goodness that I couldn't use it all! :o)

Head on over to Ephemera's Vintage Garden and look at all the fantastic printable kits available!
Consider picking up this wonderful Loving Sweetness for your own use!
Those of you who are not able to print them yourselves can find them in the Etsy Shop HERE.
