Ohhh, I have another project I'm very excited about today! It's time for a new challenge over at Rhedd and Rosie's, and the theme this fortnight is anything but a card.
Now those of you that have been with me a little while, may remember my first mini album I did a little while back using the G45 Steampunk Spells collection?
Well, I have done another, again using G45 paper, only this time I opted for the French Country collection.
First, a view of the album laid out, sort of, lol:
For the front, I used one of the images in the paper pack, and fussy cut some elements to add dimension. I chose some flowers (and apples!) I felt matched the papers, and finally opted to bind the album with string, rather than metal rings, as I felt it added to the rustic theme...
On overview of the first two pages:
Page one is simply a "look at" page. I used a green ribbon I'd stumbled across in York during my Christmas shopping and was looking forward to having a use for. I thought it worked quite well with the set of three images on top.
Page two. I made a little pocket out of contrasting paper, and popped a journal card and photo mat inside. I also chose three buttons (red, to match the paper, though it doesn't show so well in this picture!) to add a little more interest.
An overview of the next couple of pages:
This one is my favourite... I adore the paper I used for the background and the layered pocket. This time I added a journal card and two photo mats inside, as well as a postage stamp from the collection on top of the pocket. Some black Hobby House pearls to finish it off.
This next page has a "lift the flap" photo mat, and a matching journal card next to it.
So there it is. My second mini album, and so much fun to make! Now I know I say this every time, but you really want to do yourself a favour now, and go see what the rest of the gals have made for the theme. You really won't be disappointed!
And then why not come join in? There's an awesome alterable prize to be won!
Hope to see you there!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics - Anything goes
The Hobby House - Anything goes (used HH pearls)
And oldie but a goodie - Buttons (The red buttons I used on the first inside page are not only more than 6 months old... They're vintage! I got them from my aunt about a year ago, and she apparently removed them from a dress she'd bought in Paris not long after the war.)
Have an awesomesauce day!
