HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE I hope you are enjoying the break and spending time with your loved ones. Our Melbourne weather could have been better this Easter, but it probably will be later, that’s one of the things we love about this wonderful City.
We recently suffered a very sad event in my family, my sister passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. After a few conversations with my brother, and on learning that he didn’t have many photographs of our beloved sister, I decided to put together a memory album for him. I wasn’t sure of what style to use and eventually settled on a series of Tags, joined together at the top by a single ring.
I made the tags using a 2013 desk calendar which I trimmed into tags. (I love to repurpose, or recycle things). You could easily make the base cards by cutting down some manilla file folders to the desired size, I then added Stampin’ UP! Designer Series Paper, from Venetian Romance, Etcetera and Epic Day This and That collections.
I included some letters we had shared and lots of small photo’s and anecdotes that my brother may not have known. I have left my brother space to put any photo’s that he may want to add and space to write things if he wants.
I really enjoyed putting this together. It gave me an opportunity to indulge myself in thoughts of my sister.
Why not have a try at making your own personal little tag album. This one measures 7 1/4″ x 4 1/8″.
If you would like to order any of the Stampin’ UP! supplies that I have used, or if you would like a Stampin’ UP! catalogue, or perhaps you would like to attend one of my card making or album making classes. If so, please leave me a message or call me on 0414 887 738.
