Big "tradewinds" Album

I haven't been posting for a while because i have been very busy lately. But i have had some time last few weeks and decided to make an album, slightly bigger than those i have been doing before. I used the Tradewinds paper collection by DCWV. Love that collection. Got the idea after watching Kathryn's Ustream video of her Travel journal. Will be doing something similar soon. But for now, I made an envelope album and binded it with the Bind-it-all. The size of the album is 6 3/8 x 9, the C5 peal and seal envelopes. This album has space for close to 90 spots for photos and journaling as I created many flaps and pockets with tags and a waterfall pocket.

I used the flap on the envelopes to do many different flats in the album, as well as creating pockets in the album using the flap of one envelope adhered to another envelope. Will do
a video of the album when i am totally finish with it that explains this better.
It still needs some decoration and to be pimped up alittle :)

Some photos of the album so far:

A very inspirational video for this album is by Kathryn: well As by Paperphenomenon:

pink paislee butterfly garden and flowers

wow long time no posting... :)
But now i have some time for some creativity so therefore i have decided to make a nice chest box and decorate it with papers by pink paislee and flowers.

I got the idea for the chest from Crafting Clare. She has done a great job on her chest box and give a great template for how to make the box. all photos and template come from her website:

I am gonna do this chest box as it will function as a card and giftholder for a wedding. I will make a score and cut it on the top of the chest so they can put in the envelopes with their gift. I will decorate it with butterfly garden papers as the theme colors are gold and peach. i will decorate the chest with peach flowers, and ad some of the pinish ones Bunma sent as a gift.

Got the TC Notations kit!!

Now I've got the TC kit Notations home, went to pick it up from postoffice yesterday. The papers are in such a good quality and i love it. All TC kits are totally different when it comes to paper, that is why i love her kits, besides you can never fail with tc album kits, they are so well done and come with so many things they always end up really pretty. I have saved some cardstock from previous 8x8 7gypsies paper pads and will use them in this album to give more colour to it. Unfortunatly i paid much more in shipping than it say on the package and when i got it it was dirty package and also a scratch on the black album. But I am planning to cover it so that is ok. I just hope more online scrap stores think of these things to ad more quality to their service. Otherwise i am happy with the purchase. I know this collection comes with 12x12 papers but since the album is small i will not order any to avoid cut in the papers and kinda ruin them. Instead i will be using the coloured cardstocks to ad more space for photos and journaling.

Teresa Collins - Notations- coming up!!

Yaaay i just ordered the TC Notations memory album kit! This album kit is stuffed with all possible goodness that you would need for an album to look perfect.

Album Kit includes: album in black, 3 sheets of dividers, 3 sheets of die-cuts, 10 cards, 17 small journal die-cuts, alphabet stickers and 1 envelope

. Great for who has a huge family. Since we get an album included i was planning to buy black photo album paper which are thick cardstock papers and put in as well in the album for extra space for photos and use the 10 cards to write on instead. Luckily the album has no bind-it-all binding but 3 rings, so i can easily just punch 3 holes and put in which is great news to me who do not own a bind-it-all machine. The size of the album is 9 1/4 x 8 1/4. A youtube clip of the kit.

Charlie LaBonte made her own version of the album and inked it and her version will be my
inspiration for this album. Loved it!!!

I ordered this kit right after i found out that the SMASH book will be delayed due to manufacturing issues for few weeks, this will be a nice comforting in the waiting for the SMASH book.

House-shape mini album!

Finally done with my house shaped mini album!! It took so much time, because i dont have any die cut machine i cut every piece by hand in this mini album, all chipboard and designed paper aswell. I wanted it to look like a house when u look at it from front. I tried to cut different shapes until i was happy with it. So this is the result of my hard work :) but i enjoyed every minute. My family decided to buy a new house and i am planning to put in all the planing, photos and journaling along the way. These are the videos that inspired me to make the house mini house this way! Click the photos to make it bigger. This mini album has over 60 sports for photos and journaling, both big and small.
The paper used in the mini album is the complete paper crafting kit by Cosmo Cricket, the Earth Love kit and also papers by imaginisce as it had autumn theme, and the colours and papers with leaves on are just perfect for my trees. The kit came with 12 design papers, 18 element card, 8 borders and 19 cardstock stickers and i used almost everything.

The front page is the housedoor and window that i made out of a jounaling card and put glossy acent on to make it shiny like a window.

Through out the mini i have half pages for extra journaling and photo spots.

I made a mailbox by cutting out a shape of a mailbox, took me some time to get it the way i wanted.

This waterfall pocket i made my watching kathryns tutorial video on yt, a great tutorial! I made a change my putting extra tags in it aswell for more place for photos and journaling.

I loved making the tree but it was tough cutting out all leaves on the other side of the tree.

A house need a trash can.

Not to mention the tv! :)

I used my marta steward punch to make the fence..
