ATC Trunk with the "Botany Summer" by Fabrika Decoru


My today's post is for the 'Fabrika Decoru' design team and I would like to share a trunk which I created (as usual) from scratch out of chipboard. The trunk is intended for the ATC cards which I already own and will add to the collection in the future.

The paper collection which I used for embellishing the trunk is called "Botany Summer" and I loved it so much!!!

For the more convenient storage of the ATC cards, I created three sections in the trunk:

As you might guess, there was no ATC trunk without a new series of the botanical ATC cards :)

I hope you like them :)

G45 "A Portrait of a Lady" - Mini Album


Sometimes an idea for a project doesn't want to shape in our head, but sometimes the mojo visits and only after looking at ONE something, we get the full and immediate idea about how we want our project to be. This is what happened to me, once I saw a drawer pull.

I purchased that drawer pull a while ago from AliExpress and was sure that it will arrive with shorter screws, which will be just enough to attach the pull to thick chipboard. I was not expecting that the screws will be about 3/4" long.

That’s why I finally thought of using the them for holding the album’s pages and be a base of the binding. A little strap on the side to hold the album closed and a fantastic paper by Graphic 45 finished everything off. I hope you like the result.

Here are some details of the cover:

The inside pages are very simple, just a few cutout from the paper and a photo mat with the photo corners:

I planned to make a tutorial on this album, but than thought that the way of constructing the binding is quite self explanatory. Let me know what you think, because I have a shot video (which still needs to be edited) with the instructions, but I am not sure if it is worth uploading it to You Tube.

Candy Shop Mini Album for 'Fabrika Decoru'

Hello dear people!

Today I would like to share my inspirational project for the "Fabrika Decoru" design team. I created a 6" x 6" mini album using the sweet (in all the meaning) paper collection called "Candy Shop".

I wanted to use as less die cuts as possible, and as more of the cut out elements from the collection itself, as well as the accompanying flair buttons and chipboards.

Oh, I tried not to use flowers at all, even on the cover:

The album is kept close with a ribbon and has 4 spreads inside:

The frames are intended for holding the 3.5 X 5" photos, and the smaller photo mats will fit the 3.5" X 2.5" pics.

The first spread:

The second spread:

The third spread:

And the last, fourth spread:

 I think that this album will perfectly fit for keeping memories of a birthday party or any other celebration which included lots of cakes and sweet things :)

There is a short video overview of the mini album for those who want to better see and understand how the pages work:

I hope you like and thanks for stopping by.
