Two Ways to make a post bound photo album

Hi Everyone,  I hope you had lovely weekends.  Today I'm sharing a couple of ways to create fun post bound photo albums. With PROM celebrations coming up for all this years school leavers I thought this paper collection was a perfect choice to create a PROM keepsake album.  The albums have ten black pages inside just waiting for photo's to be added.  I made one for a 40th Birthday party I went to this weekend and then a couple more pictured below. I love these floral papers from G45 and chose two colour ways to create the different looks on the albums.  For the first I went for my favourite papers, Indigo Lilies and the B side of Burgundy Blossoms  .....  and for the darker version I chose Sunlit Melody, Verdant Blossoms and for the fussy florals, Midnight Melody.  I've put together an easy to follow video if you'd like to make on of these fun little albums yourself.  It includes dimensions for the chipboard covers, a full supply list for

June Giveaway 2018

Evening everyone, I've been so tied up with prepping the monthly kits I hadn't realised the June Giveaway post didn't go live earlier in the week.  Our giveaway this month is one of my Notelet Box kits and a roll of Black Construction Tape.  As always, to be in with a chance to win just leave your comment on this post before midnight on 30th June (BST).  Our winner will be announced here on the blog on 1st July.  To go with the giveaway I've altered one of the notelet box kits in my favourite papers from the Floral Shoppe collection - Indigo Lilies and Burgundy Blossoms, designed a set of notecards to go inside and put together a video that shows how to assemble the box and make the cards.  The supply list and cutting guide are listed in the video too.  This would make a great hand made gift if you're looking for ideas for Birthday and Christmas ...........  :-) All the products used in the video are also available over on my website via the link
