"Grace" Mini Album

Hi all, am here today to share with you all part 2 of my "Grace" project with you all.  A couple of posts back I shared my altered book box with draw and now I have finished the mini album to go inside the draw.

I have followed Faiths SENZ class tutorial which you can find here, so unfortunately I can't give away too many details on how this mini is constructed.  I have used A4 black card stock and Authentiques "Grace" collection.  I have used Kathy King's (Paper Phenomenon) hidden hinge binding to create the binding. Any hooo without any further ado here are all the glamour pics :)























  I have recently started to work more with Kraf-Tex and O M G guys I absolutely love this stuff!! It works a treat on mini albums!! No more ripping or tears in the paper and for me no more tears of anguish....






Well readers that is my project for this week.  As always, please come join us on....
.
till next time...
....remember to live your bliss......

Vintage Accordian Photo Holder

Well readers I am kinda stuck as to what to actually call this project.  I keep refering to it as a concertina accordian photo holder thingy, but all of that would make for an awful long title.  So I have shortened it to Accordian Photo Holder.  






A little while ago I saw something similar to this over on Pinterest, which then led me to the Youtube video.   You can find it here.   So I went on the hunt for a tutorial or even a bit of a walk through on how to create this, but I found nothing.  So I set to work on having a go at creating this from scratch.  Below are some glamour shots of my prototype.  I really learnt a lot from creating this.  I now know what NOT to do and what to use.  Soooo if you would like to join me and create this unique way of storing photo's please leave a comment and I will get to filming a tutorial on how I createde this.











Yes readers, you read that correctly up there ^^^^ filming a tutorial.  I will create another of these for you to create along with me, so please leave a comment to let me know you would really like to see how I created my version of this... and as usual  please come join us on....

till next time...

Book Box with Drawer

Hi readers, Today I have an upcycled book that I would like to share with you all.  This month's creative kit from Faith Pocock Craft Studio included the gorgeous "Grace" collection from Authentique



 I couldn't wiat to bust these open and I had the perfect project in mind for them.   I took an old hard cover book that picked up for a few cents at my local op-shop.  The rest is not fo the squeamish lol...espeically if it is particularly hard for you to see a book massacred :D

 I cut the pages from my book and set them aside.


  I then cut some sides from a piece of corrugated cardboard.


 Once I had done this.  I chose my papers and began covering the cover.


...and the sides.


I attached the sides to the box
  and lined the insides.

  It was at this stage where I decided to not turn it into a box but to add a drawer instead.



 and I also decided to change up the orientation and started decorating the front vertically.





and as always here are all the glamour shots :)















Well readers that is my project for this week.  Please be sure to come back and check out the mini I have created to go inside the drawer.   As always, please come join us on....
