Vintage Sewing Album

Hey, everybody! Another Happy Hump Day to you – SO hard to believe we’ve already seen the first week of September! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a very cool vintage sewing album using the Blank Wood Card with Dress Form Chipboard Embellishments! This was such a fun project! I layered the two dress forms together to make one embellishment with some really good dimension as the focal on the front of the album. I cut four pages for the inside and embellished the front and back of each page.

The front and back covers of the album were created with Blank Wood Card. In addition to the stamped and painted Dress Form Chipboard Embellishments on the front, I used a vintage button, charms, ruler ribbon, and elements from the digital accessories. I used Ephemoire’s Til The Bobbin Runs Out digital journal pages and accessories on the covers and all the pages. The edges of the covers and pages are inked with distress ink. The inside of the front and back covers are painted with chalk paint and each has a spool element from the digital accessories. All four of the pages on the inside are embellished with digital journal pages. They also have folders that open, flaps that open up and out, and pull-outs – all embellished with elements from the digital accessories along with stamped and die cut buttons, and all with plenty of room for journaling and/or photos. I did a little ink splattering with a fan brush on each page, trying not to over-do it because I love ink splatters, lol! And finally, I tied two ribbons on the binding rings with crafter’s cord. Here are shots of the front and inside cover, front and back all pages, and the inside and back cover.
