Introducing the Concertina Album

Hi everyone, I hope you've had an enjoyable week and are looking forward to the weekend.  I'm off out tomorrow to run our first one day workshop of the year and looking forward to meeting up with all the lovely ladies coming along for a fun day of crafting Picture Perfect albums.  This weeks release is our new Concertina Album.  It comes in two styles, both measure 8 1/4" tall x 6" wide, one had six pockets and three styles of inserts and the other has twelve pockets and one style of insert making it perfect to make it into a Year Book or calendar.  There's a full PDF Tutorial with video assembly guides for both styles of album, including the dimensions to cut your own album covers, a generic paper cutting guide so you can use your choice of papers and how to make the featured Concertina Calendar Album in the Fashion Forward collection by Graphic 45.  Let's take a closer look at both albums.  Twelve Pocket Concertina Album  The concertina pocket sec

 .   .  Hi everyone, Happy New Year. I hope you enjoyed your festivities and managed to get some 'you time' to craft over the holidays too. With the boys doing their own things this year I headed down country to Falmouth, Cornwall to spend Christmas and the tweenie week with my lovey little sis.  We walked along a very blustery Maenporth beach on Christmas Day, entertained friends and enjoyed a lot of quality time together which was extra special in so many ways. Oli and his new girlfriend stayed at a hotel in Falmouth after Christmas too so we got to meet up some 270 miles from home lol!!
