Fabric at Sugar Creek Hollow

Hello Friends!!
This is week 27 at Sugar Creek Hollow and our challenge is for you to use FABRIC (no lace or ribbon) in your Vintage and Shabby Chic Creations!  I had a lot of fun creating my project this week!!
Pin It!
I started out with a Pink polka dot Big Bitty bags from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used one bag and created 4 pockets out of it.  I inked the edges with Ranger's Old paper distress ink.  Used my Cinch to punch holes and add the wire binding.
Here are some close ups :0)
Here you can see the Vintage Pink Seam binding, Pink Jute, and Ivory burlap trim that I used on my cover.  They are so dreamy!!  Below you can get a good look at the piece of fabric that I tore, and then did a quick and easy running stitch down the center so I could gather it up.  I used some beading wire with some yummy looking glass beads to add a little somethin somethin to my mini album.  You can also get a great look at the pink flatback pearls and Cotton Candy baker's twine!

Here is a look at the first set of inside pages.  Used a couple of nestabilities dies, for photo opportunities, and premade tags from Mellissa Francis.   I used most of the same embellishements through out my project :0)/
Close up of the Left side.
I put the seam binding on the diagonal, and only put glue at the to ends, so that the tag could slide in behind it.  The photo spot was placed on pop dots to give the page a little dimension.  Ranger's liquid pearls in Bisque add a great finishing touch to the photo spot.  The tiny tag can have some journaling added to it.
Above I used a larger square die for my photo spot.  Again elevated with pop dots so that the journal tag can slide in behind it.   Turn the page, and here is the next set of pages.  The first I created a pocket with the Burlap, covered it with seam binding and the May arts leaves.  Added the bakers twine and vintage buttons!
Here is right side.  I used a Rectangle Die, and the same embellishements, just in a different design.

Here is the last set of pages below, photo spot and three more Mellissa Francis mini tags for journaling or little photos.
A couple more close ups.
 You all know how much I love this leaf trim!!  It is definitely one of my faves!!  I will have to say, that I am finally catching on to the burlap Love!  I think I need more colors :0)

Here is a close up of the larger premade tags.  I used all eight from the set, I simply glued them together so I would have pretty things on the front and back :0).   
Here are all the itty bitty tags!!
So get your creative juices going, and make sure you visit the rest of the Design Team member's blogs for inspiration!!  I can't wait to see what you create and link up at Sugar Creek Hollow!!
