5 x 7 Mini Album

Hi Everyone!..

I have a mini album to share with you today, i made this for an upcoming workshop at Stampers Grove which takes place next Saturday 25th February..

So if you fancy joining us for a few hours, I will leave the booking details at the bottom of this post.

I have literally just finished making this and I have not had a chance to decorate the front cover yet.. it is hot off the press 😉

I think i am going to start making another one tomorrow.. they are time consuming but very rewarding and  lot of fun if you like methodical crafting

It has a magnetic strip closure, and it works really well considering the volume of content in the mini book

I love this old paper line called Sycamore Street from stampin up…

Would I have done anything different when creating this… yes, I think I will ink the edges next time 😉

Rhona the Spaniel Mini Album

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year … I thought I share what I have been working on for the last couple of days… it’s still work in progress

I am making a 6″ x 4.5″ Mini Album that will feature wee Rhona our Sprocker Spaniel, I spent time up in my shed cutting all the pages and inking, matting and layering them,  got the front and back covers done and the binding done.

I love the bunny rabbit paper i used on the cover pages, it is from the First Edition Wild at Heart 6×6 stack, the chipboard letters were from Stampers grove and because they had a glossy finish I used alcohol inks to colour them.

This week I will fill the pages with polaroid pictures of Rhona printed out from my Phone on the Instax Printer.

Really looking forward to finishing this wee book… as always thank for popping round and I shall see you soon

Smile Mini Book

Helllloooooo….

It’s time for a smile.. i’m back in my shed again after being absent for a few months!

I wanted to ease myself back into crafting mode again so picked something that would come together quite quickly and wasn’t too big a project..

I used my bind it all for the closure and corrugated cardboard for the front and back covers..

I also made small policy type / scrapalope envelopes for the inside from Prima Boheimian Rhapsody 6×6 patterned paper

I used velcro closures under each flap of the envelopes to keep them closed nice and snug
