Precious Moments Canvas Suitcase and Mini Album

Hi There Guys,
I am super excited to share this project with you today.... I had an absolute blast making it...
I created this little 8x10 canvas suitcase from 3 narrow frame canvases (cutting the canvas out of one). The mini is made from paper bags it consists of 4 pages and it fits perfectly inside the suitcase.
I have added magnets to the back of the album and the base of the suitcase to stop the album from moving around inside.

I have embossed the chipboard words using 3 colours to achieve a vintage metal look.

Although hard to see I have added texture to the front of the suitcase and mini using matte gel medium
Both the album and the suitcase have a chain of hanging trinkets

The handle on the suitcase was made with a piece of medium weight chipboard covered with patterned paper and attached using Tim Holtz small hinges.

Materials used: Prima Something Blue collection, Trinkets, Crochet Icons, Trim, Mask and Flowers, Tim Holtz Trinkets, Imaginarium Designs Chipy, Scrap FX Chippy, Zing Embossing Powder, Seam Binding Ribbon Liquitex Gel Medium and TSC Trinkets

Thanks for stopping by, Until next time Happy Scrapping

Mandie xx
