7gypsies Trousseau Photo Box

Hello everyone!  I am back today with a post for The Scrapbooking Studio in Moline, IL!  The projects designed this month are from the 7gypsies line, Trousseau Collection.  The papers are so vintage and just my style!

My altered project for August is this little photo box, made with 7g book covers.  You can see the front cover peeking out from behind the little envelope stuffed with more 7g goodness!  There is a journal card, two tag envelopes, a charm and a few stickers from the sticker sheet.  And how about that crochet lace trim at the bottom.  It is just gorgeous!

This is another front shot, showing the photo tags which fit inside.  They are 5 x 7, so full size photos will fit on them!

 A closeup of the handmade loopy flowers, tulle, a triple-loop bow and Maya Road Clocks...

For the tag pocket it the center, an adorable sticker was backed with kraft cardstock and mounted on the pocket.  The little girls in the photo are holding hands, so I added "a hand to hold" phrase from the sticker sheet.  Three tags were punched to insert into the envelope.  The center tag has a 7g charm attached.

The photos placed on the tags are actual vintage photos of my ancestors and other family!
 Patterned paper was added to each tag, with varying enhancements, like the vellum photo corners below...

for the tabs on the tags, a scallop circle of patterned paper was added to a kraft circle, folded in half and stapled to the tag.  Tattered Angels Pashmina Glimmer mist was used to color the tulle 'ribbons' accenting the tag tops.

This is a really cool photo of my great grandmother.  It is a post card she mailed to a family member in the early 1900's ~ I cannot read the date, but she passed in 1918, so it is nearly 100 years old!  So that the back of the post card can be seen, it was attached with a 'hinge' of patterned paper.

Stop by The Studio today to get your 7gypsies products!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be Inspired!  Jules
