More projects

Today I want to share a album I made from 'nothing'.... as in nothing pre-made. I bought a box of biscuits the other day and it came packaged in this cute corrugated board. I see a book cover immediately. Woohoo..... ! Sorry... I am just too lazy to crop away my big toe...... hahaha.... From the above, I transformed into this cute mini album. My Dec daily kinda of album....... after finishing this album then I realised our family did so many fun stuff together. My kids now love love this album cos there are such good memories of their 'holidays'...... Dec (in Singapore) is usually like a holiday period, kids are off from school..... Christmas... taking vacations.... etc. I made 4 sections inside (all Graphic 45 papers)......... and sew papers together and then I punch hole and tie them to the spine of the album. See it looks like this:
I sprayed 2 types of mists over the cover....
Will post some pages soon....... i counted.. there are 48 pages... hee..hee... 4 sections with some sheets and hamblys each. I like that they are different sizes so one pattern paper peeks into the next. Nice! I like!
And I am so thankful for all your birthday wishes. Thank you for every comment and wishes you made! God bless you

Amazing use of the corrugated card. I love this stuff, it's so shabby looking, in a great way! Love the gorgeous book! x
