Once Upon a Springtime Album by Lisa

We have another instore weekend retreat lined up for November this year and repeated in January 2016. Lisa will be teaching this amazing ‘album in a box’ which features another of the limited edition collector's packs from Graphic 45 - Once Upon a Springtime.

The album is actually part of a box. And the top of the box is just beautiful. Lisa likes her fussy cutting and you can tell by the amount of delicately cut out animals, flower and foliage she’s incorporated.


The inside of the box then opens out to reveal lots of pretty pages. All with the same format and all using the gorgeous papers from the Once Upon a Springtime deluxe collector’s edition pack. There are magnets and flaps and pockets and all the cool album techniques Lisa loves to feature when creating her albums.








The album is also on the counter in the Sir Stampalot, Peterborough shop for you to look at when next visiting :)

Absolutely beautiful. Thanks Lisa.
