ATC Trunk - Tutorial Available

Hello dear visitors!

A month ago I had a post with the ATC Trunk, created with the "Botany Summer" paper collection from Fabrika Decoru. 

I was asked if there will be a tutorial and today I am happy to update you that the tutorial is ready and can be purchased in my Shop here.

The tutorial is in the video format. I explain to you and show step by step the process of building the trunk, give you all the measurements for cutting the chipboard pieces and provide some crafty tips along the way too :)

"Photographs and Memories" will have an exclusive kit for building up the 'Botany Summer' ATC trunk. The kit will include all the necessary supplies not only for the trunk, but also for the ATC cards which I shared here. (The tutorial doesn't cover the process of creating the ATCs though).

If you purchase the kit, you get the tutorial for free.
The number of the kits is very limited, so hurry up! 

The second version of the trunk which you will see in the tutorial, features another paper collection by  Fabrika Decoru - "Botany Winter".

The trunk is built from scratch out of heavy weight chipboard:

Here is a video overview of this project:

I am thankful for your visit and support.

Top Load Mini Album In a Box - Botany Summer 'Fabrika Decoru'

One more belated project share is a mini album in a box, which was created for the 'Fabrika Decoru' design team. 

If you follow me and view the posts from time to time, you can remember that I already created this mini a box with the G45 "Voyage beneath the sea" paper line. I had a video tutorial for this project too. The sound quality is very low (yep, it was one of my failures to layer the sound on the video, instead of filming all together at the same time), but those who really like the idea and want to build the same album in a box, can turn the volume up and listen carefully :)))
This is exactly what I did, in order to recreate my own box one more time, with another paper.

So here is the result:

There are six pocket pages in the album, each page has a magnetic pull-out photo mat. 

When you take the album out of the box, the whole construction looks like this:

Here is the list of the "Fabrika Decoru" products which were used for creating this project:

I hope you like the idea of the top load mini album and find it inspiring.

Thanks for watching!

A Retro Style Mini Album - 'Studio 75' Inspiration

Hello everyone!

Want to share with you a mini album which was created for the Studio 75 design team. It's a retro style album embellished with the "Mr. & Mrs Black" paper collection (the links to the products will appear in this post below).

The dies are mostly from the Fantasy Hobby Shop, and the stamps are by Lesya Zgharda

Here is a close-up of the front cover. I've glued down a little acrylic glass pebble on top of the clock:

The album has a lot of flaps, belly bands and photo mats, although it doesn't have a lot of embellishments.

And here is the link to the paper set in the 'Studio 75' store (click on the image below):

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week.

A Suitcase Box with the G45 'Portrait of a Lady' - for the I Am Roses

Hello everyone!

Today it's my turn to share some inspiration over the I Am Roses Challenge Blog, so besides sharing the project which I prepared for this purpose, I would also like to remind you about the Anything Goes April Challenge and to encourage you submit your creations with the I Am Roses flowers to that challenge too.

Anyway, my project is made with the I Am Roses flowers (the links will appear below), as well as with the beautiful Graphic 45 "Portrait of a Lady" paper.

It is a suitcase-shaped box with a couple of envelopes inside. The box can be used for storing anything at all, and the envelopes are just a finishing touch :))

For cutting the shape of a suitcase (which is a top layer of the box), I've used a Sizzix die - 'Vintage Valise', while the parts of the box itself were created from scratch out of chipboard in the appropriate sizes to match the suitcase base. 

Here are some close-ups and more details of the front:

This is how the back looks like:

I've attached a chipboard tag and a metal key on a ball chain to one of the handles:

On my G45 projects I always like to put that signature title. Here I framed it with one of the La-La Land dies:

Initially I wanted to created an album with the tiny envelopes' base, and look where this idea took me. The envelopes are still there though :))) I used only two of them, and just embellished them in the most simple way:

So here are the links to the I Am Roses flowers which I used on this project:

And here is the link to the G45 'Portrait of Lady' collection which includes a lot of yummy items.
