My Mini.... Albums.... First one!

Hi All!

Recently, I got addicted to making mini albums, basically these are 3 x 3 albums, made out of single sheet of 12 x 12 card stock...These are also called Meander books..  I made not 1 or 2 but 3... Yes... ! 3!!! That too in 2 days... :D...I will share the pics in my subsequent posts... 1st let me share my very first mini which I made last year for my 2nd exhibition... Have a look...

Rather than posting single photos of each page I made a collage for you people. Download it on your computer and zoom in to see the details...

I took the pics during the exhibition only.. the moment I sold it I realized I didn't click its pics... I asked the buyer to wait for a while till I finish clicking its pics.. :D

I think I did a decent job with my 1st mini book... isn't it?
I will share my latest minis in coming posts.. so keep an eye!!!

Hi All,

I am so excited to post my 1st project as "Love for crafting" DT member. The current challenge is up and running. The theme for the challenge # 5 is:

SPRING COLORS + More than one butterflies 

Here is my interpretation of the challenge theme. 

I made a tri-shutter album for you. It might seems complicated at first but its not. If you have ever made a tri-shutter card then its a piece of cake.. Only main task is to embellish it.

A zoomed view of the full album. I have not pasted any pictures as of now. Also, the theme is not decided yet so I have kept it as an all occasion album without sentiments.

Did you noticed the flowers, leaves and butterflies? I punched these out from Echo park papers and distressed the edges with distress inks.

Supply List:
Card Stock: local buy
PPs: DCWV from Itsy bitsy and Echo park's Dots and stripes from Kavitha's store
Diecuts: Kavitha's Store
Ribbon: American carfts from Itsy Bitsy
Daisy flowers: Kavitha's Store
Tools: Doily edge Punch, Fiskar's SureCut, JEF Flower and leave punches

Entering into following challenges:
1. alwayscrafting - Anything but card
2.Simonsaysstamps - Favourite tool (As usual my Fiskar's trimmer, I cannot imagine making even a single piece of craft without it... )
3. Divasbydesignchallenge - Anything goes
4. Creationsbygillm - Photo Inspiration
5. Challengeupyourlife - Photo Inspiration
6. Gingerloftchallenge. - Anything but card

I hope I was able to inspire you.... The challenge will run for a month... I am eagerly waiting what you people come up with...

Have a good day!
