Woodland Friends

I'm back, sorry I have been AWOL, it has been so hot in my Craft Room, it is south facing with a large bay window - lovely for most of the year, with lots of natural light and warm in the winter but so hot this past week that I haven't been able to get in it, thankfully it has now cooled down a little!


I have created this mini album with one sheet of A3 cardstock and a couple of sheets of the Graphic 45 Woodland Friends collection.  Above you can see the album closed, it is secured with a magnet, below is the inside of the album opened out.


This is the inside of the album with the flaps opened up to show three small pockets, each pocket has an ephemera/journaling card and a tag in it.


These are the three small tags.


I am taking part in another Online Craft Retreat being run by Clare from My Creative Spirit this weekend, we had the fist session last night and there are three more sessions today and three more tomorrow, we are creating a Bookstand, Album and a Post Bound Mini Book, hopefully I will get them all completed so that I can share them next week.

You make my world happy

I have had this Graphic 45 Woodland Friends collection for a while now, I'm not sure that I really like it as much as I usually like everything Graphic 45, it is growing on me a little though.


I have created this card using an older sketch from Viva La Verve, I used three of the papers and an Ephemera/Journaling card, I cut the image into a tag shape using an old Crafter's Companion die, I trimmed the bottom and rounded the corners.  I snipped the sentiment from another of the Ephemera/Journaling cards, added a couple of tiny fussy cut flowers and a scrunched up seam binding bow.

Seas the Day

I have been having a play with the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day collection, I love the colours in this collection, I have created a folio.

This is the front cover, I have used some rustic ribbon to keep it closed.


This is the folio opened out, there is a pocket on the first flap with a tag inside, a series of flaps in the centre and then a smaller section that wraps around when closed.


Under the centre flaps there is a policy envelope, you could store tickets, photos or memorabilia inside.  There is also a small pocket at the bottom, I have placed some small tags from the sticker sheet in it.


This is the folio opened out to show the back cover and the smaller flap.


Finally, this is the tag that is stored in the first pocket.


I am really enjoying creating albums and folios, they are quite time consuming but great fun - also, they actually use up quite a few papers and, lets face it, I need to use up some of my stash.

Thank you for popping in today and thank you for all of the lovely comments that you leave, they are all read and much appreciated.

Bird Song Album

This is the Mini Album that I have been working on, I have used the beautiful Graphic 45 Bird Song collection.

This is the front cover, I have used the image from the front cover of the paper pad along with a couple of borders.


This is the inside of the front cover, I have crated a small pocket with a tag and the front of the first page, this has a large pocket with a folder inside.


This photo shows the folder removed from the pocket.


The next two photographs are the back of the first page, with a pocket containing a journal card and the front of the second page.


Both pages are the same design, I have just decorated them differently.


This is the reverse of the second page and the inside of the back cover.


These are the two folders removed from the album.


They open out so that you could attach photographs or journal cards.


Finally, these are the two tags, in case you didn't see my previous post.

Oriental Happiness

I have been making some more tags, they are to go in a mini album that I am in the middle of creating.


I have used my Graphic 45 Bird Song collection, on the first tag I used two papers from the collection along with a tag and some fussy cut birds, the sentiment is also from the collection.


On the second tag I used three of the papers, some fussy cut lanterns and a label from one of the sticker sheets - I fussy cut the butterflies from the Prima My Sweet collection.  I also added a seam binding bow two both of the tags.

Tranquility

This is another card that I have created with my Graphic 45 Bird Song collection, I wasn't sure about this collection at first but I think I have now fallen in love with it!


I have used three of the beautiful papers along with a large black tag, I cut the tag down a little and covered it with one of the papers.  I used a Cut-Apart topper, one of the postage stamps and several chipboard pieces.  Everything has been layered onto black cardstock and I added a black seam binding bow and a little twine bow.

Shanghai Girls

I have been having a play with another of my older Graphic 45 collections - Bird Song.


I have used two of the beautiful papers and die cut a doily from another, I also fussy cut a couple of lanterns and a parasol.  I inked the edges of everything and added the Bird Song that I cut from one of the Cut-Apart sheets.


Thank you for popping in today and thank you for all of the lovely comments that you leave, they are all read and much appreciated.
