Mini Album thats not so Mini

Well as the title suggests this Mini Album is really not a Mini. It can hold over 60 pictures can you beat that and it has only 4 pages. This Album is inspired by the Build a page concept by Kathy Orta.

Album Cover
She is an amazing crafter, fabulous tutor and a wonderful person. I have learnt this from her and she is a super Creative Women, full of life and energy.

This Mini Album is 5 x 7 inches and I made this for a swap. I have use basic Card Stock to create the pages and have used the Basic Grey Wander Collection to cover the pages and the cover. I did not embellish it much as I have to courier it to my partner.

Pages with Tags

Each page holds around 14 pictures and most (9 to be exact) of them are full size (4 x 6) and the other 5 are 3 x 3, now that's a lot of pictures for a Page, it is a clever construct hence the album does not look bulky yet can hold so many pictures.

 There a pocket on the Inside Front Cover & Inside Back cover giving you more space for Photos and also there is a tag which can again hold a almost full size picture.

Pocket on the Pages
The binding is very simple and elegant, it looks like a well bound book. I am so much in love with this album that at one point I felt like not mailing it to my partner (sshhhh... don't tell her this).

However a man who stands by his words, I shall not fall to such temptations and have finally couriered this album to her.

Hope she likes it.

Would love to hear your feedback on the album.

Kimono Card - Simple yet elegant

This is an out of turn post 'Masculine Monday' will return soon...

Here is a simple yet elegant card that can be used for any occasion.

The kimono is the traditional clothing of Japan. There are many different types of kimono worn by men, women, and children. The cut, color, fabric, and decorations of a kimono may vary according to the sex, age, and marital status of the wearer, the season of the year, and the occasion for which the kimono is worn.

The Kimono Card is a simple adaptation of this traditional outfit and can be decorated and customized for the required occasion, be it a Birthday card, Thank You Card or Miss You Card. By changing the paper, colour, it can be customized to any occasion.

Enjoy the Kimono Card

A Wonderful friend...

To kick start the year I have made these cards for some wonderful friends that I have met on this crafty journey over the last one year.

The size of the cards is 4 x 5 1/2 inches and the focal panel is 3 x 5 1/2 inches. I have lined the sides with Gold Metallic paper and Silver metallic paper. For the sentiment i have used Vellum and embossed the sentiment using my Ranger Heat Tool.

 These two card are embossed using Ranger White Embossing powder and used Tim Holtz distress inks to create the background - Picked Rasberries & Seedless Preserve and Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade.
