Mini Album Time to Remember

Greetings and welcome.

Today I share another mini album. This one however is slightly different to the previous ones I have made. Usually I create as many pockets and photos matts are I can, not this time.

The cover is really simple for a change, using some wood elements and the metal book corners. The title wood elements are from Imaginarium Designs and the hinges and keyhole are from Kaisercrafts. I covered these in some Vintage photo stain and then coated with crackle accents. 

I love book corners and used up my last Tim Holtz book corners.

The papers I used were from a paper pack I found in my station by Toga L'Air du temps. A wonderful vintage paper collection. Along with the paper I also have some brads from the same collection as well as some journal cards which will be added once photos go in to the album. 

I hope you like this mini album.

I am considering creating kits for my etsy store with instructions on creating your own mini album.

Unexpected birthday Card

Hi there crafters and readers/followers of my blog.

I hope you are all well and creating up a storm these days. Seem to have an excess of creating energy right now, which is tough when I have an exam in little over a weeks time. 

Todays show and tell is a card I made out of the blue a while ago now. Love it when inspiration hits and I get to make someones day.

I made this impromptu card for a friends birthday. I had been a bit involved in my studies and had not realised the birthday had come up. One afternoon I created this and popped it in the post. Few days later received an elated message via Facebook with a thank you for the card. 

In my hast to make and post the card however I forgot to photograph the card! Luckily I was able to get some photos to show you the card.

Birthday card all flowery and bright

Greetings crafter

I am finding some time for crafting these day as a breather from my studies. This particular card I made the day after I completed an arduous assignment for my university course. It was so lovely to get stuck in to some paper craft.

A dear friend had her birthday the day after I made the card and we had every intention to catch up however life happened. I was able to catch up with her a couple weeks later for a yarn day and gave it to her then.

I haven't worked with flowers and leaves for a while, so there were a few brief moments of abject terror that I was making a total mess. However, I rather liked the end product. 

I seem to be drawn to the aqua and teal tones these days as I feel they work well with for white and creams in the papers. Of course I edged elements with Tim Holtz Vintage photo because it is my go to.  

Stay tuned for some more posts coming your way.
