Mini Album

Hi Everyone
Another little mini album I made.
This is a 6x4 mini 
using the stack the deck binding method and envelopes this little album took no time at all to assemble
There are 6 pages full of pockets and tags and decorated with WOC flowers and silk flowers.
all the tags i have made myself using stamps from from stash and distress Ink by Tim Holtz
the front cover has a cluster of flowers again using WOC & slik flowers, some vintage images, and I gave it a title of '' unforgettable Moments''.

watch my you tube video on this album 

Wedding Mini Photo/Memory Album

Hi Everyone!
I just want to share a wedding mini Photo/memory Album That I made.
I used white & cream card stock for a clean fresh look on the cover and the internal pages
I made each page which is a pocket page with white card stock, I matted each page with Cream linen textured card and used a corner punch on all the corners.
there is a large photo mat/Tag in each pocket.
The front cover is decorated with Wild orchid Craft flowers, i used all white, cream and earth tone colours, there are roses, carnations and babys breath in the cluster.
i added some cream lace trim, a white heart doily, I have used a Mr & Mrs Heart topper over the top of the doily. There is also a bride & Groom topper down on the right hand side I added 2 silver filigree Corners.
The spine has been distressed and i used a script stamp to give some detail.

Wild Orchid Crafts DT Open call Entry

Hello All

So I decided to brave it and enter the WOC Design team call Entry this  month! 
It helped that i had just received an order of Yummy Flowers from WOC, I wasn't quite sure whether to entry or not, there are some amazing projects out there for this call, but i though what the heck! if I dont enter i will never know right??
My first project was an  Altered Frame, which i distressed and gave a crackled look using The Tim Holtz Crackle paint. added a variety of lush roses to my Frame and a few embellishments.
The Second project was an Altered Note book, I made the front and back papers myself by using Linen textured card stock, I distressed the edges with some scissors and Stamped a flourish design all over using walnut stain distress ink by Tim Holtz, I used the hanging sign from Tm Holtz and distressed it all with walnut stain, I used some chain to attach both pieces, Then i used a selection of flowers from WOC to decorate the top corner and the bottom of the note book.
You can get a clear look at both projects from the Video linked below.
These two projects were great fun to make and I wish everyone who has entered the Best Of Luck!
