Small album for memories
I´ve made this small album for some pre school memories, it also works well with school memories. It´s great to collect photos from plays, mascerades, outings and exhibitions. You could make an album for best friends too. This is for Simon Says Stamp.
It´s so easy to make these if you have Melitta coffee/tea filters. You will also need a bunch of matching decor papers. I´ve covered both sides of the filter with DP. I sewed all sides on the first and last filter, the other filters still have the opening left for private tags with journaling or more photos.
For this album I used 8 filters, I didn´t want to bore you with pics of all of the pages.
I´ve borrowed the album idea from a book by Cathrine Rein Carlson and Turid Eide and it´s called new Scrap ideas. I don´t know if it´s available in English too, mine was in Swedish.
Papers are from a retail shop called Clas Ohlson, a heaven for men with some goodies for us too, hehe. I´ve used Distress Inks and stamps from Tim Holtz, House Mouse, Prima, The Paper Studio, Panduro and a nameless one. Dies are from QK, Cuttlebug, Sissix and Nestabilities. I have also used a flower punch from Panduro, Sakura pens, Dimensional Magic, DMC thread and been handy with me scissors. Lizards are from my stash.
I got my Magnolia Fall Kit today, hooray! I´ll go and play with those cuties now. Take care!!!
