Sharing a little love Graphic 45 Style


Mon Amour Post Bound Album  Clare Charvill Graphic 45

A very good morning to you from a very stormy Cornwall.  Hope your New Year Celebrations went well and you've recovered from all the excitement of seeing in 2016.  All the ships horns in and around Falmouth harbour went off at midnight as the fireworks lit up the sky and the stormy sea.....  very moving start to the new year. 
Love is definitely in the air over on the Graphic 45 blog.  What a fab way to start off another uber crafty year.  Jane and I are really excited to be sharing projects made from the beautiful Mon Amour collection.  Just perfect for valentine and wedding inspired inspired projects! Click here to take a look at Janes gorgeous cards more of my albums. 

If you follow me you may have already seen my large Mon Amour album.  I used one die from Tonic Studios throughout to add the lattice and shaped detail to the pages.  With it's little heart design it was a perfect match with the Mon Amour papers. Here's a couple of page views and the link to the full video of the album too. If you'd like to make it yourself the on line workshop is available to to order from our website.  

New out on the Graphic 45 blog yesterday was my Mon Amour post bound album.  I chose a monochrome look for this darling keepsake, using Precious One 12 x 12 papers for the pages, fussy cut flowers to accent the oval photo frames cut from 12 x 12 Dearest Darling, one pink sheet of patterns and solids and Ephemera Cards to create the front cover and pockets on the left hand side of the pages. This would make a lovely wedding keepsake album of just a few favourite photos and would make a gorgeous gift for grandmas, aunts, bridesmaids and and and..............................the possibilities are endless. :-) Here's a few more pictures and the video that goes with the album too 
The project sheet of my post bound album will be available on our website shortly.  
Well that's all from me for today my lovelies from a very wet and windy end of the country.

Thank you for calling by, have a great day and look forward to catching up with you again soon

  3. Good Morning Clare!! Oh what a beautiful, fabulous little album! I just love it, my mind started going in a 100 different directions upon seeing it. Of course it is "YOU" my friend that inspires us each and every day. Thank you, may 2016 be fabulous for us all! Wow the photo of the waves pounding upon that church are amazing, I wonder how long it will last with the surf washing it all the time! I am sure it has been there for years and years but interesting to see nonetheless!!! Thank you for posting it and hope you are having a wonderful getaway in Cornwall!
