Well, here is yet another album, this time made from just one sheet of cardstock.  I used this kit:

Isn't it gorgeous?  I love the vintage feel of this kit and that is such an adorable bicycle!  It's a collaboration between Aimee Harrison Design Studios, Digilicious Designs and Snips & Snails Designs and they have done such a good job!

Anyhow, I started with the sheet of kraft cardstock which I folded in half length ways and then again width ways.  I then folded each half in again to make the four pages.  Each page was matted with papers printed from the kit, and then decorated using kit elements:

I added the organza ribbon to fasten the album together, and decorated the album using kit elements.  The flowers were taken straight from the kit, I just printed out two or three and cut each out individually before arranging.  the buttons/brads are also form the kit.  I just resized them to fit my 3/4" circle punch to save having any wobbly edges when hand cutting!

The tags were printed to fit the album and then I rounded the corners and added a tag at the top of each one using the Stampin' Up! round tab punch.  

I've been busy making stuff for craft fairs recently and will try and get photos of those posted.  I've made post it note holders, small pencil boxes, seed packet wraps, and calendars (trying to get a start on stocking fillers for Christmas ;) ) and have plans for lots more.  The trouble is, that whilst there is so much you can make and so many free tutorials out there, the one limiting factor I have is time.  There just aren't enough hours in the day or enough days in the week, so if you have any to spare, feel free to pass them along!

Then whilst I managed to take a weekend off to take my daughter back to Plymouth where she is at University, I actually managed to forget to take my camera.  I remembered half way down the M5 but how I managed to leave my camera behind is beyond me because it's like forgetting to take my right hand with me! I always have either a camera or a laptop with me when I am out and about!  It must be old age setting in so I dread to think what I will be like in a couple of years!

Finally, some news!  I am really excited as I am now a member of Nibbles Skribbles Creative Team and I am really looking forward to creating some hybrid items for her.  I have my first kit downloaded, I just need to print out the papers and so on as I have an idea for something I haven't made before.  I'll be altering a coffee tin, so watch this space to see what I come up with!

Happy scrapping!
