Make yourself a Concertina Album


Voyage Beneath the Sea Concertina Album Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Morning everyone, what a wet washout of a weekend we had here.  Rain rain and more rain kept me in crafting after having a bit of a sort out of all my left over papers and embellishments.  I put together this fun little concertina album using Voyage Beneath the Sea left overs.  Measuring 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" its the perfect size to use the smaller 6 x 6 papers and you can fit your 6 x 4 photos in it too.  A great little album to keep in your handbag or to make as a keepsake from an event.  You can add as few or as many pages as you like and with it's ribbon closure you can just keep filling it up.
Here's a few more pics from inside and a video link on how to make it too.

We had a great night at Harry's college last night.  I can't believe he's reached the end of his two years there.  The Art, Fashion and 3D Design students put on a great exhibition of their final end of year pieces and parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and more flocked to see all of their amazing pieces.   H is now 'officially' on holiday ......!!!! Results should be out mid July and he's got almost three months to chillax before heading off to Uni in September.  Maybe I'll get him designing and crafting ..........!  maybe he thinks not! 
Well the washings ready to hang out on the line before I officially start work so I'd better jump to it.  Great to chat, enjoy your day and look forward to catching up again with another crafty make shortly. :-) C

  5. Good afternoon Clare, I have to admit that I watched your tutorial for the concertina album on YouTube before it's posting on your blog and can tell you that I am alreadly searching through my "stash" for suitable papers! It's a great project and thank you for sharing this. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for Harry's results in July and hope he enjoys his well earned break. Take care
