Mini Album by Lisa Maybank using Garment District 6x6 paper pad

No comments:
This beautiful mini album was created by Lisa for an all-day class at Sir Stampalot. The mini album is sewing themed and uses the 6x6 Garment District pad by Marion Smith Designs.

There's lots of fun techniques and products Lisa has used on this project, including the (unfortunately discontinued) Sewing Room die and on the edge Sewing die.

Lisa has used the Button Box embossing folder, mini spools and metallic wax rub-ons.

Love the handle, it's by The Hobby House and the Pearl Strings to accent the front cover.

Take a peek for yourself, isn't it cool? Each page is made from one 12x12 black sheet of Bazzill and folded so that you get flaps and pockets.

Enjoy :)

Times Nouveau

No comments:
Don’t the weeks pass so quickly? Well another “weekender” session at Sir Stampalot is nearly upon us :)

Lisa will be teaching here this weekend. She’s created this amazing album using the deluxe edition pack from Graphic 45 – Times Nouveau. Lisa has already taught this class once but due to the interest she’s running it again this weekend. I was so busy last time I didn’t get to see the girls putting the album together so I hope to be able to take several sneaky peeks at what they are doing over the course of the weekend.

Here's a couple of pictures of the front cover:

Lisa has used one of the Hobby House drawer knobs and the Tim Holtz elastic band to create the closure for the album. A lone hitch fastener is attached to the clock on the front cover to create a hidden spot behind if you open it :)

The inside front cover has a little open pocket to slide in a tag or notes, along with some 3/4 sized pockets for tags 'n things:

Lisa has created a little waterfall on the next page with a closure using one of the designs from the paper.

Plenty of flaps and pull out sections with chipboard closures using the chipboard pieces from the Times Nouveau kit.

Lovin' the big dotty paper:

you've guessed it, more flaps and flippy bits!

and then finishing off on the back inside pages with a grid area for multiple mini photos.

And finally the back cover. A drawer ring holding the elasic in place and a border edge punch on the spine cover:

Amazing, classy and elegant :)

Another album made completely from scratch. It makes you feel so good as you go throughout the day just using G45 papers, some Bazzill and chipboard and suddenly you have an album forming – a real satisfying feeling :)

Happy Crafting Always
