Sharing a New Tutorial

Well can you believe it's Friday - this time last week I was waiting to collect my little sis from the station and this morning I dropped her back off to catch the train back to Truro - where has the time gone.  We've had a fab week visiting family and friends, entertaining and enjoying fab food cooked by Annie (high fat low carb style) and lost weight too.  Result :-)   The house seems strangely quiet and surprise surprise it's raining again............ so I've grabbed a coffee and sat down to share a new post with you ahead of what could be a very wet weekend.  
With larger sheets to work with its easy to create and cover larger projects with a professional finish.  The album has a floating spine and covers that sit flat as you open the book.  With four double sided pages and the inside of both covers you can create ten scrapbook pages that measure 11 3/4" x 11 1/2 or as I did in the original album five double scrapbook pages from A Ladies Diary Deluxe Collectors Edition. You can personalise the album by adding a picture in the frame on the front or leave the cover plain.   
Links to the PDF Tutorials to make the basic album and the full Ladies Diary Scrapbook and pics are below: 

       

We added black and white photos of ourselves to our albums , they really did look fabulous. 
If you're itching to get your hands on the new collections from Graphic 45 we're taking pre orders for them over on the website.  
I've got so many ideas flying around in my head I can't wait for my Ambassador box to arrive and see them in the flesh lol!!! 
We'll be using the St Nicholas collection for a number of projects at my November Retreat and I'll we'll be crafting with the Cafe Parisian papers at a couple of workshops in Edinburgh on 10th  and 14th September. Details of those are on the blog - click here for more info 
I'm off to run the hover round the lounge and then collapse for the eve I think.  Thanks for calling by, have a great eve yourself and look forward to catching up again over the next few days :-) C.

  6. Good morning Clare, I too just love your albums and this is another wonderful project. Unfortunately I haven't been around much lately due to back problems and as consequence missed all the fab weather we've all been praying for. I must have been the only person in the UK who was in bed using a heat pad despite the 30 degrees + temperatures! Thankfully I'm back and looking forward to catching up with your recent posts. Take care
