I'm not sure where the idea came for this one, but I know I sat here with a daft grin on my face as I was making it! I also know you're not supposed to laugh at your own jokes but I can't help but chortle at this one.
In my head I can see Mrs Owl, arms folded, curlers covered with a headscarf tied on the top of her head, standing on her "Coronation Street" style doorstep in a Northern town keeping her beady eye on all the passers-by, missing nothing and ready to sort out any bother that might occur.
My non-card project for June's kit was an acetate album.
I've had an acetate album and some spare acetate sheets lurking accusingly in the drawer for some time as I hadn't a clue where to start with them.
For some reason this kit gave me the inspiration I was waiting for, I think it was probably the floral papers and those owls that started me thinking about making this little album. At first it was going to be photos of a "falconry day" I booked as a birthday pressie for Hubby a couple of years ago, but then I decided to alter the theme slightly and just have some photos of flowers and some of the wildlife in our garden
I used chipboard to make the covers rather than make them from acetate - I was after a sketchbook/notebook sort of effect and the lined Adornit paper was perfect for that. The large letters on the title are the alphabet stickers which are part of the Sassafrass Lass "Pocketful of Rosies" collection.
I used the Bind-it-All to make the book, but it would have worked well with bookrings too
Most of the pages are single layers of acetate, but a couple of them are actually pockets made my folding an A5 sheet in half. I'd decided to use the lovely papers on the edges of the pages - I folded strips of the papers in half, then used fancy edged scissors, or the pretty scalloped edges that these papers have, so making pockets was easy - I just folded the paper strips around both layers to enfold the edges and make the pocket.
I can use the pockets to add notes to the tags I've made, or to pop extra photos into.
The new July kit has just gone out to the subscribers and is full to the brim with gorgeousness and fun stuff. so if you're looking for a crafty treat why not pop on over to Bubbly Funk and see if there are any left - I don't think you'd be disappointed.
