Small Upcycled Valentine Heart Candy Box and Mini Album

This is an upcycled candy box that I altered and then made a mini album to go inside the box.  I also put a window in the lid of the box.  I used Delta Ceramcoat Crackle to give it a distressed vintage look.

A look at the box and mini album.

Small Upcycled Valentine Heart Candy Box and Mini AlbumI used a piece of acetate sheet for the window.  I just traced the shape of the box and cut the acetate to fit.  I cut the pages of the album from 1/8 inch thick chipboard.

Strathmore Pad Album

Turn this simple drawing pad into a fabulous album.  The camera really doesn’t do this album justice because of all the interactive pages.  There’s an envelope in the back for ephemera, a waterfall mini album, flip ups and flip outs.  The many different ways of folding the pages of the drawing pad lead to lots of pockets, tags, and journaling.  Lots of full size photos can be put in this album.

Father’s Day

This is a shadow box page that I made for my husband for father’s day (I took it out of the frame for photographing).  I don’t usually do monochromatic for scrapbooking so I thought I’d give it a go.  I sprayed the burlap flowers with a blue glimmer mist then added a little glimmer mist to the base page and doily (unfortunately the camera does not pick up the glimmer).  I did have to add a little white.  I couldn’t help myself.

Patriotic Album

I created a two ring binder using binder rings (I think that’s what they’re called).  Each page is made with cardstock and has a pocket with a large tag.  Very quick and easy to make.

Boxed Cover Wedding Album

This is a custom wedding album that I made.  The cover is 6 1/2″ x 8″.

Front Cover

The cover (the front, back, spine and side opposite the spine for a wrap around) is made with chipboard.  That’s why I call it a boxed cover.

Here you can see the wrap around cover that creates the “boxed” cover.  It has a magnetic closure.

Inside Front Cover and Cover Wrap Around

I like to stuff my mini albums full of tags and pockets, pockets within pockets and photo mats and interactive pieces to keep the viewer interested and guessing.

 This album has 6 very stuffed pages.  The binding has a 3/8″ gusset on each page and a three piece spine that allows the album to lay flat when open.

Opened Flat

The back cover has an envelope for storing ephemera that may not be acid free.
