August challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Good morning all.

Is it really August already? Well, when you're reading this, I should be sitting in a tent in a field, more than likely lamenting the constant rain and trying not to sink too deeply into the mud!
I should be back in a few days, and be very much looking forward to sleeping in an actual bed again...

Anyways, for my August DT project at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, I did something a little different, and decided to make a whole collection of items with a few items from the G45 "Home Sweet Home" collection.

There's a recipe book, a couple of tags, a couple of magnets, a set of cards made with leftover scraps of paper, and a mini album.

I've still got lots left over, so there will probably be a recipe box happening in the near future too!

Some pictures of the mini album pages:

The front cover

First page with photo mats/journalling cards

The next page has a series of photo mats stacked on top of each other

The other side of the mats

More mats

Journalling cards on the flaps which open up to leave more space for photos.

A recipe card tucked into a pocket

More mats and journalling cards.

And the back.

I do love making these mini albums, and I adore this G45 collection. It's not often I work with primary colours (and green, lol), but it makes for such a striking combination.

Now I hope you'll come and join us this month. Remember Anything altered art goes!

Have a fabulous weekend!
