Envelope Photo Wallet

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday’s workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh was fun and a good time was had by all making their Photo Wallets.

I made one along with all the lovely ladies who came to the workshop.. it was a lovely surprise to see Helen again, my crafty friend from Kelso. ย  ย I met Helen when I used to demo crafty stuff at the garden centre down there and she now comes all the way up to Edinburgh to Stampers Grove workshops ๐Ÿ™‚

Our photo wallets were constructed from envelopes and we used a variety of mediums, including Brusho Crystal Coloursย  to achieve our finished projects

Instax Photo Book

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year to you all!

I have been working on a couple ย of new projects this year, one I can share now and the other later in the week once it has had time to dry.

I made this photo book/wallet today live on UstreamTV. ย  I wanted something to display my Instax Polaroid Photo’s in and this little wallet is just the ticket. ย  I have uploaded the content onto my Youtube Channel.

It is a great way to store some of the photo’s that I have taken last year, I want to make another one for this year or maybe I can do one a month ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you are organised and have all your pictures printed out, and your patterned paper picked out, these little booklets should take no time at all to put together ๐Ÿ™‚

Measurements :-


  • 2 pieces of chipboard cut to 4 1/4″ x 1″
  • 2 pieces of chipboard cut to 4 1/4″ x 3″
  • 1 piece of chipboard cut to 4 1/4″ x 1 1/2″

Inside Cover

  • 1 piece of patterned paper cut to 9 1/2″ x 4″

Inside Pages

  • You will need ย approx 8 pieces of patterned paper 5 5/8″ x 4″
  • These should be scored at 2 3/4″ and again at 2 7/8″

You can also follow along with the video on Youtube, but it is lengthy and I chat quite a bit with my crafty friends on Ustream as it recorded live, just in case you think I have lost the plot lol!

I also added some of the Tim Holtz Chit chat and Small Talk self adhesive words once the Instax Polaroid Photos had been fixed into the book.

Here is the link to my Youtube video below

I hope you enjoyed this week’s project, I will see you all next week.

Just a reminder that I am planning to get back to doing regular Ustream shows on a sunday morning ๐Ÿ™‚

As always, thanks so much for your support and for popping round, have a great week!

Chunky Polaroid Wallet

I made another polaroid photo wallet this morning for my doggy pictures of Chunky.


I used black card stock for the base which I got as a multi pack from Simon Says Stamp,it is their own brand..

The patterned paper is from Glitz Designs, and has a slightly edgy grungy feel to it


I bought some wood shapes and alphas when I was over at Stampers Grove on Saturday, love these, and will pick some more up when I visit again next weekend, I inked them up with onyx black ink, but it wouldn’t dry so I covered it with a layer of stampin up crystal effects, which is the same as glossy accents.


I filled it with my mini polaroid snaps which measure 2″ X 3 1/4″


it is a perfect size to pop into your purse/handbag and you can adapt them for virtually anything… grandchildren, cats, gardening, friends and family snaps ๐Ÿ™‚


I have one more of these to make and I will be sure to provide all the measurements for you, I ran out of time today,

As always, thanks for popping round and I will see you next week.
