I heard from Nick yesterday to say her Blog Candy had arrived safe and sound, so now I've got something I can show on here - I've not been a very busy blogger lately, so I can spin this one out for a few days if I'm careful. hehehe
I wonder if anyone guessed from the sneak peek I gave of the ribbons and fibres on the spine of the book which papers I used to make it?
Well as I received the new Crate Papers collection "Sweet Branch" the other week and hadn't had a chance to play with them, obviously it had to be number one choice. Ohhhh they are so pretty, the colours are all soft and subtle, what a joy to use.
I made another little album for Nick. It's along similar lines to the others I've been doing, with little double page LOs, one side for a photo and the other for some journalling; that's the idea I have in my head when I make them, but obviously how they are actually used is up to the recipient!
I decided to get the Bind It All out to make this one - this is the first time I've used it to make an album. I learned a little lesson too - you should always check that the page(s) you're making the holes in are pushed right down to the bottom before you pull the handle down and punch through........ooops! Ah well, I also discovered a pretty way to rectify my mistake. Whoever said Necessity is the Mother of Invention was spot on!
Anyway, I'll add some photos here and over the next couple of days to show the whole thing. I hope Nick enjoys filling it up, and I hope anyone popping by will like what they see.
Thanks for looking, please leave a message, its such fun to hear from anyone who pops by
