Wedding Gift Album

Friends of ours recently got married and I made this wedding album as a gift.

The mini book was made with 6 envelopes and ivory pearlescent card and paper , the front and back cover from MDF. I made a similar one as a mothers day gift in our craft group on a Tuesday afternoon when Anita was the demonstrator. I think the idea was from Laura Dennison

The pages were decorated and embellished with varying sentiments from the internet and Stampin Up products Three of the pages were left blank to hold a photograph. The heart shaped border pulls out on each page to hold other photographs

Stampin Up Items:
Stamps: You are loved, Charming, tiny tags, broadsheet alphabet
Punches: Boho blossoms, decorative label, large oval, large heart, itty bitty punches
Embosslit beautiful wings, elegant bouquet embossing folder, vintage wall paper embossing folder

Please contact me if you would like any further information on the above or to order any Stampin Up products. Stampin' up Sale-a-bration is still on until 31st March, whereby orders over £45 qualify for free products.

Crafting Club

I have been meeting a few friends (Tracey, Anita , Margaret, Nicki and Beryl).

on a Tuesday afternoon for a crafting session

Each week we take it in turns to show how to make a little project.

This week was my turn and I produced these two little boxes

They have been made with the Mini Milk Carton BigzL die from Stampin Up. Other items used were Beautiful Wings embosslit die, eyelet border punch, scallop trim border punch, and dotted scallop ribbon punch. The idea was inspired from Sunghee and Kerry , you can see their versions at Creativity in Progress and KB Papercraft

The boxes can be filled with chocolates and given as lovely gifts, especially as Mother's Day and Easter is just around the corner

I have some more crafting projects which I will share tomorrow
