Revealing page one of the album……..

Image © Stampin’ Up! 1990 – 2008

This is just gorgeous isn’t it?? This was done by my sister. She doesn’t do much scrapping, she is the more of a quilter…….material excites her LOL!! She has enjoyed lots of papercraft too and I often rope her in to help me prep for workshops and we both made thousands of cards for the fete last year.

Much of this album is SU! stuff, much of it has now retired…..but I thought the layouts and colour combination can be useful to readers. The family we did this album for have given permission for you to see it. Although, they have yet to see it LOL!!. It gets ‘delivered’ next Tuesday and Nicole is already spending the money…..LOL!……she has seen a great making memories caddy that she has wanted forever for her desk at school. So I think that will be her special treat, especially as she has spent much of her holiday completing it.

The colours used here are cranberry crisp, buckaroo blue, cream wide grosgrain and a bit of mellow moss ribbon. The scallop circle was cut using a nestabilities diecut. The cream patterned paper is not SU!. It was actually a piece we had left from doing our mum’s wedding album years ago. When I look at this album though, it is so much better. Makes me want to go back and redo mum’s album……wonder how she would feel about that? I’ll have to look up and ask her LOL!!! She’d prolly roll her eyes and just laugh!!Mind you if it was a quilt that she wasn’t happy with, she’d just pull it apart and start again. I’ve seen her do that many times. Mum would spend hours rearranging a ‘random’ design – used to send me nuts!!!!!!

Stay tuned for page 2 onwards…………Pssst – Leave a comment for Nicole, she’ll get a kick out of it – she ‘wonders’ if they’ll like it LOL!!!

  1. She is mad if she doesn’t love it. It is the most precious gift giving an album so beautiful (even if she has made it on behalf of the family) and she should be proud to of completed it.

  2. Nicole this is just stunning! If this is the first page that the family will see, they will certainly be excited about the rest of the album. I know that I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the album.

  3. Oh Nicole this is just simply stunning and you should be very proud of your work and I know that the new owners will be so very touched by your work. Sharon could learn some things from you!! (luv ya Sharon mwah)
