Nightfall is HERE!

Hello Friends!  Daniela here with a Handmade Mini Album featuring Nightfall!  Isn't this line the cutest?!! The vintage images, the patterns, just so spooky yet cute at the same time!  I have made my own simplified version of a 5 1/2 x 8" Black Chipboard album.  It features lots of different size pages, and lots of the brand new Sizzix Tim Holtz Halloween Dies.  Tim's Dies and Authentique Paper are a perfect fit!  Let's take a closer look at the album,
 My cover features layers of the beautiful papers along with a cutout. I've used the Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette Die, Treat Bag and Shadow Words with all the different papers, I LOVE how it all turned out!  I've made a tag that sits inside the little gift bag.  I had some bling and wood pieces in my stash.  I just colored them with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink.  I really went with my love for ribbon on this one, as it is really one of my very favorite embellishments!  I also like "making" my own embellishments, like the metal paper clip featured below:
I have these cabochons that are empty so I just find a great image from the paper or sticker sheet (in this case, the spider is on the sticker sheet), use Glossy Accents or clear drying glue and then glue it all together.  I LOVE these, and its a perfect addition to any project.  

This is the side view of the album.  As you can see, There are lots of openings, pockets and different sizes of pages.  The inside cover features a great pocket. The first page is a fold out and I love to ink and then mount my stickers and put them on the fold out.  I've also added the Tim Holtz Zombie Die to this page.  

Here is another page that shows you one of the smaller pages that flips out.  The front of this flip out has a mini pocket with little tags I made from my leftover papers. Inside the flip out there are spots for photos and journaling as well.  

This shows the back of one page and the front of another.  I've turned the Trick or Treat cutout into a pocket and made a tag for it.  You'd also be able to fit a photo on that page.  This next page is a "slim" page so its just wide enough to fit your photo and some journaling.  You can see a larger but shorter page of the album sticking out behind this one.  

This is the inside of the "slim" flip out.  I used the banner stickers and some ric rac ribbon to make the banner go off the page and onto the next.  

This next picture is from the back of the album and you can see the larger and wider pages behind this fun pocket page.  There is a little wallet folio inside the pocket for some treasures!

I absolutely adore Nightfall and have so many projects up my sleeve, I'm going to get crafting!  I hope you've enjoyed a look at this mini and please come back again soon! Daniela Costa
