What a beautiful day! We spent the day with family at my sister and her husband's home in Mass. They have a fabulous pool! I spend most of the time up to my neck in the water in the pool! We had great food and great company! It was a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th ! Thank you Lenny and Adrianne for the invite!
The above picture is of an album I made this past week! I think it really is cute since it looks like a suitcase. The instructions are by Alexandra ( I think )- and you can find the video in the link in her blog here-
I couldn't find the envelopes she used with the same dimensions so I made my own. I also had paper that looks like leather so I didn't have to do any of the coloring she mentions in the instructions. I just glued it to some cardstock to make it more sturdy.
Here's a few more pictures-
This album has 8 pages! Plenty of space for journaling and pictures!
Each page has a pocket for either a tag or a folded book. Check out Alexandra's blog to find her walk thru of this album. I used Graphic 45's Love Notes collection for most of the pages. Love that collection!
I still want to do some more decorating on some of the pages. I loved making this album! One other project I have been working on is the lighted winter scene below.
My wonderful brother in law made the frame for this project. I still need to spray paint the frame white. But I do like how it came out. I plan to do some more lighted winter scenes to sell at our Christmas fair. They are really fun to make!
Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July! Stay cool!
