This is the
most beautiful paper I have seen in a long time (except Christmas paper of
course) I purchased this paper a while ago but had a hard time using it because
I wanted just the perfect album to make out of it. This is it, this is the
album. I got this idea from LMs Crafty Creations on you tube. She is brilliant and
a gift to the You Tube scrapbooking world.
Here is a link to her channel. www.youtube.com/user/LMsCraftyCreations/videos The paper I
used for this creation is Graphic 45’s Secret Garden collection. It holds enough photos for any occasion you
like. The album is for sale at $100.00 Here is the
cover. I left it plain because this paper does not need frills and bling. Its
beautiful all by itself. I did put glossy accent on the key and the flower
centers at the bottom. Just to add texture and make them pop a little.
open the book, it folds open on both sides of the album. The purple cards on
the top and bottom open to reveal more space for photos or journaling. …
I decided I wanted to scrapbook a few pages of
Christmas and Winter past. Looking out the kitchen window at mom & dads,
you see the beautiful winter wonderland and one bright red cardinal perched on
the bush. I think that’s a lilac tree but I do not remember. I thought it was
so exciting that Carta Bella made a paper that accented that beautiful bird. I
also added stickles to the birds to make them pop off the paper. Then
I added rhinestones in the trees to make them sparkle.
This page was fun to create because floods of memories
came rushing back from my childhood. I was 13 and my sister Melanie was 6. I
remember the hat and mittens because I think I wore them every year until they
wore out. The dog in the picture was Dolly. I loved her so much. She ran away
one year while dad took her hunting. She never came back. This is the same
paper pack as the last photo Snow Fun by Carta Bella. I added some red sequins
with rhinestones on them and some red pearls at the top. The snowflakes,…
This album was so fun and creative for me to make. When my
sister passed away last May, we found several of these photo album collections
in her home. I took them and …… you guessed it. I am making decorative photo
albums from them!
Then I RIPPED
out the insides……..
And threw it
Then I was off
to make a fabulous Mini Album or 2 or 3 or…. I have Black
and white and I have Brown Earth tones. Both beautiful I believe anyway! Here is the
page has a pullout folio. Then folds over so you can affix 4 photos if you like. The other pages have pockets with tags in
them. Another 6 or more photos can be put on these, or journaling if you like.
This is just a few of the pages.
Let me know if you like it. If you really like it, share it for me :) Thanks so much for taking the time
Butterflies in the Fall
When The cool crisp air comes to our yard, the butterflies are gone. However I am still in love with this beautiful butterfly paper. The papers came with other fall paper and ephemera that are very fall looking so..... I made a fall folio with the butterflies 💗
I absolutely LOVE this paper. It is so adorable. (Bo Bunny) Inside this cute little folio I put a waterfall of eight photo mats. This means it will hold 16 photos. The mats are 3x3. There is also a pocket on the side for extra photos if you have more of that event.
I spent a little bit of time make some waterfall folios. I absolutely love making them. The January Folio turned out so cool. I am going to make one for each month!! The purple one is March and has two waterfalls in it. That is why it looks a little bit bigger than the others. I thought all the flowers, pansies and daisies on the front really gave it some spring love. The Sweetheart Folio is February. Valentines Day is always so special. I love my hubby very much and we celebrate it big time! My Dad used to write my mom poems every year.....That is so sweet and yes, I do have a few of them.
My Candy Cane Christmas Folio I love this folio. It's candy cane sweet (ha ha) I would almost hate to put photos in it the paper is so cute. I have made mini albums and scrapbook pages and flip books of all kinds. The waterfall folio is my favorite. Favorite to make and favorite to sell. Everyone loves them because they are practical. When you have an event, you take 25-50 photos and sometimes even more ... if you are like me. But, how many do you actually print and want to keep. 15-20 is more like it.
The waterfall holds 16 photos on the fronts and backs. 17 if you use the underneath mat at the bottom. There is also a side pocket that holds some tags. You can also use the pocket to hold all those extra photos you have left from the event.
Here are the journaling tags and photo tags I made to put in the pocket of the folio. You can also put a photo on the front and journal all about the event on the back.
I know I have made a lot of these. If you ever use You Tube go to My Sisters…
In October we were blessed with another Grand~child. Zackery. He is perfect. Such a cutie and so good...omg he seldom cries. 💗 I "needed" to make him a baby book. I had soooo much fun making this album. I used the Bundle of Joy paper from Echo Park. I LOVE this paper.
The way the ultrasound photos just fell into place with the dates on them and I love the title "Life in the Inside" Stole that from Pinterest.
Then in the center...Daddy holding his son for the first time...Awww how can you not get emotional at the photo. That is why I placed it in the center.
First time meeting my favorite Auntie 💖
I love photos of the child sleeping on the father. So this one just melts my heart.
This is another photo that just melts me...Ya, I melt a lot like the Wizard of Oz witch ha ha
Are those not the most darling flirty eyes? You just want to pinch his cheeks and kiss him all over!!
Grandma and the twins were the first visitors. Grandma looks so happy…
