Simply Us Mini Album with Amy

Hi blogging friends! It's  Amy here today with a mini book to share!

 When I received this paper in one of my design team kits, though the colors were bright, the collection screamed vintage project for me. This sent me rooting around for the small collection of photos I have from my childhood.
Tea cups have been collected in my family for many generations. That particular fetish missed me, but I can't see a teapot or teacup without remembering those who came before me who treasured them. When I knew I was going vintage photos with this project the Maya Road Tea Pot mini album was a sock and shoe kind of decision.

Lots of Maya Road goodness happening here. I sprayed the letters with Maya Mist and then covered them in Stickles and Crackle accents. The paper collection I used on the entire project is Authentique's Flourish collection.

The larger leaves on the flowers were made with the cutouts of the tea pot handle when I originally covered the pots. Save your scraps, it's interesting the number of times I find a use for them in a project!

I used my Vagabond to cut out the flower shapes here out of the scraps I had once I had covered the tea pots. The button was one from my great grandmother's collection which seemed fitting with this particular project.

A picture with all four generations of women is priceless, I used the arrow to direct the eye to flip the page over....

And here is the backside! I used Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and a stencil here for the clock in the background. The envelope is also made of the Authentique paper.
This project is on display as well as all the supplies you need! 
Happy Scrappin'!
