I'm liking Pink Lemonade a Lot !!!

Hello my Lovely's,  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.   I had a lovely day on Sunday with my Daughter and dear friends at our bi-monthly crop session, we didn't get an awful lot of crafting done but we had lots of laughter, tea and cake, biscuits more tea and cake. lol 

Anyway I'm here to share a Tag I made using sweet Pink Lemonade Tilda, I'm just loving this collection, haven't found an image that I don't like. !!! 

I've used lots of elements on my tag. First I cut out some Kraft card and white card stock. shaped them and then ran them through my crinkle machine to make them corrugated, dabbed some paint onto them for effect. 

I will pop a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post with links where possible.  That's all from me today but I will see you tomorrow with hopefully another Tilda creation.

Have a wonderful day everyone

Revamped Graphic45 Place in Time Mini Album

Hello my dears,  I made a mini Album last week using some Graphic 45 papers called Place in Time.  I made it first with the idea of holding it together using large metal binding rings,  but when I finally managed to find the rings I just didn't like how it looked. 

So I had a dilemma !!!!!!  I had already punched all the holes for the rings (here is an example) 
how do I save this album and make it more beautiful!!!!

Easy Peasy!!!  re-do the front & back covers, make a spine with and accordion page holder, take all the pockets off of each page and cut off the side with the 3 punch holes. Bwaaaaaaaaaah!!!!

I only lost about 1/4" from the side, which gave me an opening to attach to the page holder.  Anyway if you scroll down you will see my now revamped and much prettier mini album. 

Below is the revamped Album

Front Cover of album which has been decorated with various mediums, Memory Box honeycomb stencil,  Cheery Lynn small flourish die, Martha Stewart Butterfly punches. Heartfelt Creations Vintage morning background flower stamp and Vintage morning Die. Wild Orchid Crafts small roses.

Top View of album, all pages have been distressed with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.
