Too Cool for School

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but there is SOOO much pretty paper and you keep buying more. You physically have to restrain yourself  from buying more....

I am currently caught in that loop of drooling over all the pretty paper out that. Since finding out how  to make albums.... that I never use lol because I don't actually scrapbook. Coco Vanilla...... STUNNING...... Kaisercraft Whisper, Pen and Ink and don't get me started on Kaisercraft's Greenhouse.... Why do they have to make soo many pretty papers..... For suckers, I mean people, like me! LOL
People are suckers just..... it's soooooo pretttyyyyy

Today's project is another album this time for a new preppie in school. First year of school are called Preps or Fondation students, depends abit on area

This paper I loved soooo much I have 2, yes 2, of the smaller packs of this collection and a large pack of the more plainer version of this collection.... So there will be another larger version to come.

I need to find a way to use all this paper some how!

It is very bright and colourful range of papers, perfect for the school years!

I added a pocket on the front as I felt it was missing something. I also added 3 photo mats.

 The paper is abit hidden in this photo the pencils on the paper line up perfectly. With another pocket with quite a few mats.
The pages are staged. I used tutorial from LMSCreations, I am not up to a level to do these things from scratch yet. I have altered things slightly to make it my own a little bit. First step I suppose to doing one from scratch on my own.
 Little pocket with a photo mat in the edge. Sticker is also a Kaisercraft I added it wonky as I thought primary school art is never straight. ha ha.
 This opens up accordian style. See below.
 Double flap with a tuck spot on the inside.

 A couple of little pockets with photo mats.

With a little magnet to hold things closed. Pocket on the left.

Opened up.

 A little magnet to hold the 4 little flip panels closed.

Inside of the back cover with another pocket.

 Back cover.

That is it. Lots of photos.

I have recently graduated with a Diploma of Auslan. Some of you know this...

I had a woman in my class that I had to make this for....

On the back of her laptop she had almost this image and every time I see it I thought of this image.
It is a 49th & Market Ballerina Stamp. I believe it is discontinued as I can't find it anywhere.

A couple of weeks ago I had a card I couldn't tell you what I coloured it with apart from Copics and this is another....

I really love how it turned out.

The sentiment was a Concord & 9th Layers of Love

Next week I should have some cards with more information on colouring.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wedding Album

Good Morning...

Today I have a little bit of a different project. One, I have been really enjoying doing lately! So I made an album for one of my oldest friends using the Simple Stories Always and Forever range. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I was going to with it!

I also had some old handmade paper at home I wanted to use.

There isn't much I can say about it so sit back and enjoy the photos. If you have  any questions just leave a comment.

Disclaimer: Now the weather is starting to get cooler I am still trying to find a good time to take a photo, so some of the photos are a little bit darker.

I do hope you have enjoyed the photos. See you all next week.
