In the end this turned out to be a project that just didn’t stop.
*** Heavy on photos which is so unlike me as you all know I am not a fan of taking them ***
Desperately wanted somewhere to keep my ephemera goodies of Tim’s and also wanted to decorate the box which I bought from the MDF man at Ally Pally in 2012 … yep had it that long. The goodies fitted perfectly in the box, which you can see here if you want to see the post. This left a lot of room at the top so next came the album.
Finally cut into the Menagerie paper pad which wasn’t as bad as I first thought, what is it with me and papers? I am always the last to show off papers used because I can’t bring myself to show them the scissors. Used a variety of G45 papers from different pads which was teamed up with Tim’s.
Lots of stamping, fussy cutting, pasting through stencils and painting with pearlised translucent paint leaves me one happy bunny. Totally love this album so keeping it for myself oh and the box, sorry Amber!!
See how much space was left even after adding Tim’s ephemera packs so I designed the album to fit perfectly and to leave room so it comes out easily.
Remember all the rage about faux leather well I have lots made and that’s how I did the strap for the buckle. Glued two pieces together before cutting to the right size and stitching around for added strength.
Even more photos …
and more …
Nearly finished …
PHEWW – THE END
Well the back of the album anyways!!!
