My head is bursting with ideas but just when I find Mr Mojo right here ready, my body isn't having any of it at the mo and is forcing me to sleep plenty, so I was really pleased with myself when I managed to make these -
I saw Dawn Wheeler make them on the Sunday Scrappers show ages ago on Create & Craft and thought it was something I could do. It's easy, 1 sheet of 12 x 12 card stock folded corner to corner and half to half to get all the score lines, then cut to centre up middle line but not from a corner point. Fold backwards and forward on itself to get this triangle album. Decorate to your hearts content. These are blank as I'm going to give them as presents I think, people can then print their own wallet size pictures to add.
Here's the pages -
The embellishments are mainly flat so not to bulk the book up as these are perfect sizes to keep in your handbag. Just add photos of this Christmas of your family or friends. Perfect for those mums and grandmothers!
I'm going to make some non-Christmas albums too, again perfect gifts and may print off photos to pre-fill them for family members, like that idea!
I also started making cards for some family birthdays later this month, here's one I made for my boy to give -
I used the Quackers Reddy decoupage I bought from Crafter's Companion, I also sprayed it with their pink iridescent glitter spray which has given it a fab extra dimension. I must admit I'm having to stop myself from spraying it on everything!
Glossy accents on the bubbles works a treat too, I created the background using a Darice embossing folder and added my new Marianne die and some flowers. I sprayed the wooden butterflies with the pink spray which bubbled on drying but I liked the effect and thought it looked like they had flown through the bubbles!
Lace, Candi and sentiments finished it all off. So what do you think - of the albums and the card? I appreciate all your comments and love reading them.
Take care Zo xx
