Christmas Album

Happy Christmas everyone Kasia Here. I Hope you are all looking forward this season cheer.
I have prepared Christmas albums for all the photos I will take during this season.
I used AB paper pad-breeze of the forest. I made the album myself  from scratch.
To make a hinge you will need 3 rectangular pieces, each 1cm smaller. The size is up to you. My first hinge was 9 cm width and 14cm long. You need to score each piece 1.5cm on each side as those side will be holding your pages.
You will need 6 cards to use as pages. I used 250gsm white card.I glue each folded card to each flap from my hinge. I left the opening on the top so I could place some tags/notes/photos in those pockets. I used the same pages for a cover but I glued double paper to make it more sturdy. I used scissors to distress the edges of each page.
Before decorating the outside of the album, I firstly I adhered the ribbon to go under the papers.
Each page was decorated with a paper from the same paper pack. Each page is 14cm x15cm hence you can decorate 4 pages with one 12inch sheet. Cover … I used some burlap, lace, cut our embellishments to decorate it. Added some flowers and deco topping crystal. I added some gold splatters and mdf word to finish it off.
Hope you enjoy my project and will have go at Christmas album as well. Crafty Christmas to all Kasia x

Halloween Book

I’ve really had fun playing with my Halloween kit from Louise at Thompson craft supplies

The fun papers and all the ephemera made it very easy to create,

this time its a mini album, about 8″ x 8″

all the papers and other ephemera are all from a Halloween kit. These is more in the kit section. You can also have one put together  just for you, just give Louise a budget and some ideas of your taste and she will do the rest. See our lucky dips for more details.

made from scratch no base book, the base is some cardboard from a packing box from work, folded into shape.

scored and folded card make the inside spine where i have then fixed my pages, couple are fold out pages to add interest and extra scrapping space.

lots of fussy cutting and layering on the cover with patterned papers layered onto the black cardstock which gives a great frame to each page.

added texture from the hessian, ribbons are art grit make it a very tactile cover.

oh and don’t forget the splattering!!
