Tim Holtz “Dapper” Miniature Envelope Mini Album by Ginger Ropp

Good morning, everyone!  I have another project share to brighten your Monday morning again this week 🙂  Design team member Ginger Ropp created this fabulous really mini album using the new Tim Holtz Dapper paper collection:

This mini measures a whopping 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″, and Ginger used tiny 3-1/8″ square envelopes for creating the pages.  You can see from the cover that Ginger had a ton of fun with ButterBeeScraps metal on this mini.  She added one of the “Creative Clocks” charms in the upper left and layered gears in a variety of sizes on top.  …and how about that Antique Bronze Drawer Pull (#HD636-B)?!?!  It looks like a little door knocker, and I LOVE it!  She also layered a Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#083-B) under the drawer pull, which frames it perfectly.

Here’s a quick look at one of the pages inside the mini album:

On the left, Ginger glued a Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#316-B) onto the bottom of the page, and left the top unglued to tuck a couple of small tags behind it.  She also layered a medium copper gear on the filigree.

Moving onto the right hand page…Ginger layered another bronze filigree (#083-B) and more gears as a decorative element on the tag pocket.

Flipping all the way to the back cover, you can see that Ginger added a Large GLASS Clock Cabochon w/ Bronze Setting to the corner of her page, and used a Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#851-B) to hold more tags.

If you’ve drooled as much as I have over this adorable mini album, you’re definitely going to want to watch the YouTube video that Ginger uploaded.  She does a complete flip-through of this cutie pa-tooty, and each and every page is just as luscious as the ones above 🙂

As usual, I thank you for popping by today and hope you have a wonderful week!  Cheers!

    Love this album! Ginger is the reason I am completely into mini and micro-mini albums and this is a perfect example! I would love a tutorial on this one. I think I have watched every one on You Tube. Thank you, Ginger.

    Between Ginger and Julie (thepaperbaglady1 on You Tube), I am convinced to use metal embellishments! Love the look of this itty bitty mini! Thanks for featuring Ginger’s project.
