Word Album Friendship

Hi as I have finished my college work for this term, hopefully, fingers crossed, yippee, I can post a few things on my blog.  This is an album I made for my neice for finishing college.  Graduating as the Americans call it but without the ceremony!  I keep saying this but I dont get the opportunity to play in pink very often so when i can I take it.  I am also glad to say my neice loved the album, phew!

The letters were cut from the Old West Cart from DCWV The Sweet stack which has some lovely papers in.  Ribbons from my stash and some vintage lace from my Dad's stash that he left me.  Bound with my lovely Cinch, I love my Cinch!  Its so easy to bind stuff with it.  Letters were cut out at approx 9.5 cms (3.5 inches) with the word "ship" cut from Gypsy Font and welded together.  The box I made from a 12 x 12 peice of paper just fashioned round the album with acetate wrapped round and eyelets fastened on using my cropadile II, then I threaded ribbon through to hold it all together.

This is the Vintage lace.  
Thanks for looking.

Stained glass panel for college

Just thought I would show you all this.  Its what I have made for my college course.  Although its a ceramics course we can incorporate other materials into it if we want to.  Its not all finished properly just got to glaze the pot but wont look much different.  Thanks for looking.

Fathers day book with box and room for treats.

This is a box and album with space for some sweeties.  I used the box fromTags, Bags, Boxes & More on page 124.  Cut at fit to page on a 12 x 12 size paper then sized it down a couple of millimetres.  I used a pattern from the JT cart.  Using printable acetate I printed a photo of the boys on it and did a few Happy Fathers Day all around it and cut it at fit to page.

The words on the album is from Paper Lace which is a lovely font.  Cut at 1inch.  The word love is from Home Decor and the Tag is cut from TBB&M at about 5 inches, the paper was from a Colorbok stack from Walmart and I just cut the cream square to fit.  A few eyelets on the cover to thread the string through and the cover has been stamped to give a distress look.  Album bound using the cinch.

Thanks for looking.
