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

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!

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!   
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)

The first tag was inked lightly all over wi…

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
