Another Album!

Sharing another album with you today, this is one I made for our daughter in law Lidia at Christmas. I filled it with photos of the boys, from babyhood to their lockdown summer in 2020.

I chose this metallic copper paper pad by Papermania for the pages - I had a hard time finding the right papers, as most of the photos were of little boys, I didn't want to make it flowery. Some of the papers are a soft peachy pink with foiling, but because the patterns are geometric, it still worked. The photos don't show a charm that dangles from the spine of the book - I found some metal charms that were tiny letters on chains, and used them for their four initials







The following pages are of their visits to their second home in Dorset. I found an old map showing their village, that's the central page you can see, I die cut a circle to highlight their village





 A lot of work, but I was very pleased with it, and Lidia loved it!

I blame the pandemic, I was facing yet another groundhog day, idly browsing the web I found a Scan N Cut machine on eBay and bought it. Old friends may remember that I bought one of these in America when they were first released and found it very frustrating, so I gave up and sold it. All I want it for is cutting out stamped images and pattern papers. It arrived and was unpacked (with a lot of buyers remorse going on - it's an expensive pair of scissors!). But, hooray, it's a lot more responsive than that early model, and cuts beautifully. I now have enough stamped images cut to make about a hundred cards, better get colouring, but I can't stop cutting stuff out ...............

  1. So beautiful! I can see that it took a great deal of thought, planning and effort. No wonder Lidia loved it.

  2. Wow! The album is fantastic!
    What model Scan N Cut did you get? I also bought one and sent it back, but keep thinking I should have tried harder.

    1. I got the CM900 Debby. It’s working pretty well, much more responsive to stamped images than the first one I had
