Hallows Eve Mini Album

Hi all

Hope you are all well and have been busy crafting away or been getting inspiration from my posts.

Today I have another NEW Mini Album to share with you all which again has been made to go on sale in the market night. I will put all the info about this at the end of the post.

Now let's take a look at the mini album

The mini album front cover is interactive. The cards on the front can be moved to you can stack them all behind the top card or fan them out like pictured or fan them out the other way. This also means youc an move each card to take a proper look at the one behind.

Now for the inside of the album

Doesn't this album look awesome. I absolutely love this one and it is going to be hard to part with it but it has been specially made for the market night so I need to let it go hehe.

The mini album is approx 5x5 inches square and features a mixture of top quality designer series papers, card stock and the cover is made from chipboard. On the inside there is some flips and pockets with inserts.

The album can hold 18 3x4 inch photographs and a few other smaller size photographs, you can also add some little keepsakes inside the album, do some journalling what ever you like to make it your own.

Now where can you get this beauty and an array of other stunning products from?

This is being held on Facebook and is going to be an amazing event full of stunning handcrafted products from all over the world, so please do come and check it out.

Spellicious Tall Envelope Mini Album

Hi all

Today I have a new product make to share with you all which I have made for a Halloween/Samhain market night I am honoured to be taking part in. 

Here is one of two mini albums I have made for this event

On the front cover I have used some beautiful ephemera which is apart of the Spellcast range which matches the papers I have used for this album. I have also added on some stunning handmade flowers by Petal Lu and a lovely latch.
When the album is opened up this is how it looks

Now lets take a look inside this album

As you can see some of the stunning papers in this album have beautiful gold foiling on them and I have to admit my favourite papers out of this range are the rose and spider web paper and the moths, the pictures really do not do these papers justice.

The album features some flip out parts which are maginatized and each part has an insert so there is even more room to add your pictures, journal-ling, keepsakes or what ever you like. It would make a lovely Spell Mini Album to keep them safe.

This album will be available to be purchased in the Halloween/Samhain Market night 

Here is where you will find the Market Night. I hope you will join us and take a look at all the stunning handmade creations which are up for sale for this event.

Birthday Boy

Hello All

Today is a scrapbook layout share. This is another I have been itching to share with you all as the products I have used on this piece are from the Kaisercraft Factory 42 Range.

The moment I saw this range I fell in love with it and was so happy to see that it was part of our Crop Kit for August YAY!

So here is the layout, which I did do while at the Crop. As soon as I saw what was included in our kit I knew straight away what layout this was perfect for.

This layout is of my wonderful hubby to be on his 30th Birthday, the reason I wanted to use this range for this layout is because he is a mechanic. Yes his birthday cake was a Top Gear cake :D

Now for some close up pictures of different parts of the layout

Birthday Boy tucking in to his cake, the sticker i put onto this picture fitted so well and is so true "a party without cake is just a meeting"

I have to admit this has got to be one of my favourite layouts out of all the ones I have done so far. The kit which we had at the crop was supplied by Charmed Cards and Crafts and I have to say it has been my favourite kit to date.

This really does have a steampunk mechanical feel to it and it fits my hubby to be so so well, and I reckon I will be ordering more of these papers and embellishments. Can never have enough Steampunk/Mechanical goodies ;)

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this layout and it inspires you.
