Top Load Mini Album In a Box - Botany Summer 'Fabrika Decoru'

One more belated project share is a mini album in a box, which was created for the 'Fabrika Decoru' design team. 

If you follow me and view the posts from time to time, you can remember that I already created this mini a box with the G45 "Voyage beneath the sea" paper line. I had a video tutorial for this project too. The sound quality is very low (yep, it was one of my failures to layer the sound on the video, instead of filming all together at the same time), but those who really like the idea and want to build the same album in a box, can turn the volume up and listen carefully :)))
This is exactly what I did, in order to recreate my own box one more time, with another paper.

So here is the result:






There are six pocket pages in the album, each page has a magnetic pull-out photo mat. 








When you take the album out of the box, the whole construction looks like this:


Here is the list of the "Fabrika Decoru" products which were used for creating this project:

I hope you like the idea of the top load mini album and find it inspiring.

A Retro Style Mini Album - 'Studio 75' Inspiration

Hello everyone!

Want to share with you a mini album which was created for the Studio 75 design team. It's a retro style album embellished with the "Mr. & Mrs Black" paper collection (the links to the products will appear in this post below).

The dies are mostly from the Fantasy Hobby Shop, and the stamps are by Lesya Zgharda



Here is a close-up of the front cover. I've glued down a little acrylic glass pebble on top of the clock:


The album has a lot of flaps, belly bands and photo mats, although it doesn't have a lot of embellishments.











And here is the link to the paper set in the 'Studio 75' store (click on the image below):


Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week.

A Suitcase Box with the G45 'Portrait of a Lady' - for the I Am Roses

Hello everyone!

Today it's my turn to share some inspiration over the I Am Roses Challenge Blog, so besides sharing the project which I prepared for this purpose, I would also like to remind you about the Anything Goes April Challenge and to encourage you submit your creations with the I Am Roses flowers to that challenge too.

Anyway, my project is made with the I Am Roses flowers (the links will appear below), as well as with the beautiful Graphic 45 "Portrait of a Lady" paper.



It is a suitcase-shaped box with a couple of envelopes inside. The box can be used for storing anything at all, and the envelopes are just a finishing touch :))

For cutting the shape of a suitcase (which is a top layer of the box), I've used a Sizzix die - 'Vintage Valise', while the parts of the box itself were created from scratch out of chipboard in the appropriate sizes to match the suitcase base. 

Here are some close-ups and more details of the front:






This is how the back looks like:


I've attached a chipboard tag and a metal key on a ball chain to one of the handles:


On my G45 projects I always like to put that signature title. Here I framed it with one of the La-La Land dies:


Initially I wanted to created an album with the tiny envelopes' base, and look where this idea took me. The envelopes are still there though :))) I used only two of them, and just embellished them in the most simple way:






So here are the links to the I Am Roses flowers which I used on this project:

And here is the link to the G45 'Portrait of Lady' collection which includes a lot of yummy items.

The sentiment is from the decorative chipboard set by Fabrika Decoru.
