Enchanted family album

As soon as I saw the new papers from the Craft time Enchanted line I knew they would go well with the beautiful cabinet cards I have of my family. I made the album from scratch using a binding method I have recently come across called "Stack the deck". The inventor of the book binding used envelopes for her pages but I thought of using the Woodware Cd sleeves The fruit Pixie sales instead. They made nice sturdy pages and were the perfect colour too. If you would like to make this album the you can find all the information on the Fruit Pixie blog.

This time a mini book I have designed to incorporable windows to show a sneaky peek of the pages to come. The kit includes the book, papers and plenty of travel themed collage sheets you can use to tell of your travel dreams or use to embellish your own travel photos. The kit also comes with my step by step photo instruction which will take you step by step through cutting your windows to photos of every page in my book to give you inspiration for creating your own.

Catching butterflies art journal page

It feels like ages since I could create in my Art Journal with the caravan, just too many things to create and too little time to create in! Tangie gives us such wonderful words each week to inspire us, along with lots of other things but its the words I love. This one - apolaustic which means addicted to enjoyment was perfect for me to get back on the caravan with. I loved creating this background just done with acrylic paint and my fave stencil. The images are from a Tangie digi kit and just fitted perfectly. Great to be back with the caravan again!!

Olympic record book

Now for all those who are visiting from another planet you might not know the Olympics are only a few weeks away now. I must admit to say I am not that bothered about sport is an understatement, except downhill skiing of course, but I am trying to get into the Olympic spirit. One big problem with getting into a crafting Olympic spirit is the very strict and over the top copyright that is on absolutely everything you could possibly think of to do with the Olympics but as this is NOT for sale and is just to give the lovely customers of The Fruit Pixie an idea of the sort of thing they can do, I hope I am OK.
  So here is my Olympic record book for the 2012 Olympics. It was made from a bare chipboard tab album and used the Ruby Rock it Vintedge collection paper pack all available from the Fruit Pixie. For full instructions go to the Fruit Pixie blog and Facebook page.

  The plan is to write down the main medals, there are so many sports, on the Gold, silver and bronze pages

  Then a pocket at the back to store any keepsakes I pick up along the way. If you are going to watch a sport at the Olympics why not use this as your diary of the big day.

Paris mini book

Altered Pages have so many wonderful collage sheets that sometimes us designers get carried away and use several  in one project. For my blog post this week I decided to just use one collage sheet to make a project to prove how you only need 1. So here is my little Paris accordion book. For full instructions just go to the Altered Pages blog.
