A masterpiece from Brenda

You're all in for a treat today with a beautiful project from our very own and talented Brenda of

"We are coming up to the end of our first anniversary challenge and I wanted to make something special to finish off with. This is an album full of flaps and pockets but I included some of my altered playing cards I have been making as well. The album itself has been made from chipboard with a card cover and every page has been designed with flaps or pockets that will hold some family photos.

Here you can see how the album looks with each page completed (although there are no photos in it yet).

The front cover also has a flap and the altered playing card is double sided and can be lifted to reveal a mat for adding the photo to.

Every double page has a different colour palette and design.

I used lots of Tim Holtz papers, die-cuts and embellishments to complete the look."

This is stunning Brenda, thank you!

Whether you're a card maker, into tag art, altered art, scrapbooking, journalling, whatever you happen to like crafting, there's plenty of scope with this month's topic. With TWO prizes to be awarded this month and the winners to be chosen at random ( EVERYONE has a chance of winning. We have another 10 days to go so please come and join in!

Another fab project in a few days. xxx

  2. I adore this album. I love the pockets left to hold photos. You can change these photos out for season or different occasions. Marvelous layers and I love the sentiments used throughout. Gorgeous as usual Brenda.-- Mary Elizabeth
