Christine`s Paper bag Mini Album

I have made this Album for a dear crafting friend, she is not to well at the moment so I made this to cheer her up   I Also sent her some lunch bags in case she wants to make one herself ,she has enough to make two mini albums

This is the front cover, I cut the little frame on the my cricut using an SVG file from Penny Duncan, I cut four of the frames then stuck them together to give a chipboard effect, the flower was also done on the cricut, this one I designed myself by having a little play with some shapes, i inked the edges and scrunched the flowers up before joining all the layers together with a pearl brad

For the next page I cut out her her sons name RYAN on the cricut glittered it up a bit with glamour dust, I also added some buttons to the side edge, for the smaller page I added some contrasting paper cut a tag on the bug and slipped this in the pocket

The next  pages I have left quite simple, I have cut a scroll corner edge again using one of Penny's files, this  can be used to slip in a photo of Ryan or some journalling mats,

these two pages are just covered in backing paper, I have left them plain so Christine can add her own photos , mats and embellishments

This is Sophie`s pages again her name has been cut and glittered and I have added some girly flowers to the corners, I have made a tag for the smaller page, it just slips into a paper band

Again on the other side I have added a corner to catch the photo edges ,and a large flower on the small page

Each of the edges of the Album have pockets , I have made some pull out mats ready for Photos or journaling to be added to by Christine, I have put some of the papers I have used onto the edges,

Here is the revers side of the mat shown above, again edged with pattern papers

For this one I added a blue ribbon and a matching blue flower.

Here is the back with a punched border

This time I made a mat in blue card and added two of the scroll corners photos can just be slipped inside, a few blue flowers to finish

I have added some lined papers to the back to journal on, rubbed an ink pad around the edges coloured a white flower with the same ink pad and added a cream one to the centre held together with a brad

ripped the edges of patter papers then layered up some flowers, only the one edge of the flower is stuck down so Christine can pop a photo edge underneath

This is the back to the one above done the same way but with different flowers

I have tied lots of different threads to the book rings, I have also added some beads to twine and also added a little made with love heart.
hope you like it Christine and have fun finishing it all off, would love to see what you do so show on your blog please
Hope you feel better soon
Big hugs

crafters companion DT card

Here is my DT card or this weeks challenge over on crafters companion blog, we had a sketch to follow and we were asked to use 3 papers, brad,buttons or pearls and one flower we also had the option to add a secret tag
The papers are from the very first Crafters companion CD that I bought all those years ago Florals set 1.
I  cut out the scallop edge mats on my cricut, coloured the magnolia image with some pro markers( you don't have to use all crafters companion product on your entries, but it would be nice to see something)
the flower came from eBay
Here you can see my hidden tag, I have stamped greeting from SU and added some bright threads
I have taken the same papers into the inside of the card, the mat was also cut on my cricut
