So I don’t think there will be much time for crafting in the next week or so. We have a pretty full schedule with Puffing Billy on the menu for our grandson. Who would have thought that riding on a train, (an old steam train mind you) would be more exciting than the aeroplane that will bring him here.
While I still have some crafting time up my sleeve I have been putting together a mini album that I found on a lovely website called Embrace Serendipity. There is a very good simple tutorial to follow if you want to make one of these for yourself.
I have done everything wrong on this album, but it still turned out really nicely. I started by choosing much too wide a ribbon, but I tied it in a different way for decoration instead of to tie the album.
I used some black chalkboard cardstock for my covers, it had been in my craft cupboard for a while and I hadn’t found a use for it. It stands up really well as covers for mini albums when you don’t want a thicker bookboard. Smaller albums can be overwhelmed by a thick cover.
But the real star of my little mini album is the gorgeous ‘A Little Foxy’ 6″ x 6″ designer series paper stack that I have used for the pages and cover. Available in my online shop. There is also a matching stamp set which is on my wishlist at the moment.
I hope you like my mini album, I will add a few more elements and dress up the cover a bit more. Photo’s to come.
