And now for something completely different....

Once upon a time I did a lot of papercrafting as well as making jewellery, but since B has come along and I started my business properly it's taken a back seat. I've packed up some of my materials and other bits and pieces and put them in the loft for when B is older and can use them or for when (one day!) I have a bit more time, but I've got a few bits and pieces in my workroom too, and got the chance to use them yesterday to make a small photo album.

I've already made a couple of these for my mum to give as christening presents for her friend's grandchildren, so I obviously had to make another one when the third child was born! It's a simple accordian album with little pockets behind the photomats for tags for journalling. I've cut out titles for each page, and packaged up some embellishments too. I know that the children's mum liked the first two albums, so I hope she enjoys filling this one up too.

It made a nice change cutting paper and cardstock rather than silver today. I don't think that I'll ever spend as much time as I once did on papercrafts, but you never know, I may finish the scrapbook I've started for B's first year before he starts school!

  1. That looks so sweet Jo.

    I still make cards, but my scrapbooking takes me so long I don't think I'll pick it up again until all my children have left home !


Thank you for leaving a comment. I read every one and will do my best to get back to you!
