I got some Graphitint Pencils from Derwent, and these colors do fit my color scheme! Soft, muted shades and they are easy to work with using the waterbrush.

Sweet Pea stamps and Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps (sentiments) and the waterbrush available from Crafts and Me, Martha Stewart border punch from CropStop. The labels are cut with the Gazelle.

Card album

This album is made in the same way as the one I showed yesterday, but it has only 4 paper bags and no birthday book. A gift for my niece.

The bags have different texts on them, to show what kind of card is enclosed. This is for birthday cards…

… one pocket for Thank-You-cards, and the other two holds cards with other texts and without texts.

For my SIL’s 40th birthday I created a combined birthday book and card album – keep track of the birthdays and always have cards ready at hand!

Materials:

2 pcs cardboard, 8×8″

12 paper bags, cut to 8″ length

ass patterned papers

12 pcs cardstock/paper with months and dates printed

1 1/4″ o-wires and

BIA

Dress up the covers and cut the paper bags to fit. Make the holes and bind together using the Bind-It-All.

Decorate the covers with papers and embellishments of choice, and make all the cards to go with it!

This is a great gift that will give pleasure in several steps – first the one who gets it, and then those that gets all the lovely cards!

For this album I used Webster’s Pages patterned papers, UTEE gold on the edges of the covers and embellishments from stash.

The Bind-It-All and wires and UTEE from Bumblebee.
