5" x 4" Mini Album "Purple Memories"

Hi there,

some of you might have wondered where i have been all day yesterday, but i was really busy with this album and the tutorial for it, so i did not have time to look after my blog and the fb groups yesterday, apologies for that!

I just love making books and albums and boxes, suitcase, purses and god knows what else i might create in future..So i am currently also working on my Etsy shop where my makes will be available to purchase or made to order if not in stock.
This will keep me busy for a few more days i am afraid but i really hope to find good homes for my beautiful albums and cards so i am excited to put them online shortly!
This album was created wit the designer papers from the neutral collection , and i used chipboard and purple card stock  for the album.

I purposely kept decorations to a minimum to give the album this elegant look.
Loading it up in shabby chic style with tons of paper roses, flourishes and tags and sentiments seemed to be somehow the wrong thing to do and so i stuck to minimal decorations .In fact,  the only decorative part is the belly band with its large front panel.

I hope you like my newest make and rest assured the video tutorial is 85% done, i am still joining sections together and cutting it, adding additional information to it etc. but i am positive to be ready to publish it late this evening today.
So if you haven´t subscribed yet to my blog and/or my Youtube channel, feel free to do so now as you won´t miss out on any of my releases like that.
Thanks for dropping by today and i will add the measurements and the product list in due course to this blog.

Bye for now
