Introducing our new Album Boxes - Part 1

Happy Monday everyone.  Get me, two posts in two days lol!!!  I must be on a roll. They've been a while in the planning but I'm really pleased to be able to share the first of two new album boxes with you today.  If you're an avid follower and maker of my album projects you may have noticed that I have two standard sizes for the larger albums I make. Size 1.  a square 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" designed to fit the gorgeous 8 x 8 Graphic 45 papers, 
Size 2.  a taller/wider one measuring 9 1/2" x 7 1/2" that suits larger G45 paper pads I love to design with. 
After oodles of requests for a box that fit's both album sizes, they are finally here, well the square one is! I'll share the other one with you shortly.
Coordinated with the pre cut album cover kit the decorated album and box would make a beautiful keepsake album for a special event in your life.  My samples below have been altered in papers from the Portrait of a Lady collection. 

I've aded links to the individual products below and the Album Cover and Box bundle too.

On a totally different note I came across a fb post from a dear friend, Ruth Ann that was sitting, waiting to be added to my timeline. As I read it, I realised she was talking about me!!!!  It bought a tear to my eye so I thought I'd share it with you all.  Ruth Ann, I know you've had a dreadful year, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful words. xxx  Sending crafty hugs right back at you xxx

Well thats all from me for today.  Enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to catching up again  later in the week. Ta ta for now :-) Cx

  8. Good evening Clare. Having been unwell for a few weeks I am only now getting around to reading your blog posts. I so love this project and like all your altered kits I fear my list of "must haves" is growing ever longer. Thank you for sharing your fb message from Ruth-Ann.. it was indeed very touching and a sentiment which I am sure is shared by all your many "cyber" friends. Take care
