July Anything Goes Challenge @ I Am Roses


The winner of the June Anything Goes Challenge was announced at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog and now it's time to start creating for the July 'Anything Goes' Challenge :)

I'm sharing my inspirational piece with you today and it's a mini album, on the cover of which I used a lot of the flowers:

Pink Cherry Blossoms
Soft Green Mini Lily Crafts Paper Flowers
Mixed All Turquoise Tone Mulberry Paper Flowers

I love how everything came up together. I think this is the most pastel project of mine :)

I also used the dies from the Russian company called "Fantasy", and the papers from the Ukrainian brand "Fabrika Dekoru". The paper line which I used is called "Vintage Romance" and the die cut embellishments inside the album are from the set called "Love letters". 

Here are some of the close-up pictures.  I used a wide lace for creating pockets on the inside of the front and back covers:

On the front cover I layered several papers from the "Vintage Romance" collection, and on the spine used the die-cuts from the "Love Letters":

The inside pages were created based on the tutorial from an American crafter Cathy Chapdelaine known as "So Much Scrap". I loved her "Precious Memories" mini and purchased the tutorial for building the pages. You can have a look at Kathy's works here:

I have a video flip-through for this album:

  1. Such a pretty mini album, love the idea of lace for pockets! I too purchased a tutorial from Cathy, almost a year ago now, I have most of the pages completed,(I just need to get the time to finish the album now), so i know exactly how much work went into this, those pages are a labour of love! :) xx


Thank you for the kind comments!
