Precious Memories.

Happy Wednesday to you.  I hope you're weeks going well.  I've just taken Harry to college and enjoyed the drive through the countryside on this fabulous May morning. Its a wonderful 15 degrees outside and I'm thinking I should be outside in the garden rather than working inside :-)  Maybe after lunch! 
After a lovely weekend out crafting I've been beavering away back here at home with the gorgeous Precious Memories papers from Graphic 45 finishing off my latest vintage styled photo album.   I chose Kaisercard Bluebell card stock as the base colour and loved how it worked with all the papers and colours in the collection.  The album's full of interactive pages and pull outs to showcase all those precious pictures we have of our children, grandchildren and maybe even great grandchildren. Here's a few more pics and the video link too if you d like to see the whole album.

If you'd like to make the album yourself here's the link to the 
If you prefer to be able to see how everything goes together and follow along with me to make the project then try the on line workshop. Here's the link 

I had fun making cards from this collection for the last Graphic 45 shows on Create and Craft and thought I"d share a couple with you.  I picked out blue and yellows for this pretty card and rosebuds for the box card below.  

I'm off to ponder over paper cutting or gardening over a coffee, so thank you for calling by, enjoy the rest of your week and look forward to catching up again over the next couple of days :-) C

  2. Afternoon Clare, Truly gorgeous !! I've received my workshop, and can't wait to start my album for my Great Granddaughter, it was a 'Must Have' for me hahaha.
    Enjoy your gardening if you decide to do that, I'm still waiting for my grass seed to sprout before I cut my front grass again, I wish it would hurry up as the rest of the grass is racing away hahaha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
