wedding album

 my neice got married this month 
so i created this unique wedding album for her as my gift to her

i used 2 kaisercraft fairytale castles 
and added stampin up's beautiful love letter and newsprint designer series papers
along with a huge collection of accessories such as
ribbon, glitter, chipboard, antique tags, lace, brads, flowers etc etc
plus the obligatory stamps of course :>

normally when i do an album i usually keep it very simple and clean cut
but being the new year and wanting to try new things
i thought i would unleash my inner vintage/shabby chic/visual feast monster upon the world.
i also had limited supplies i.e. what i had brought with me to nz from sydney
so no zipping into the craft room to get stuff.
it also made me use what i had and think up different ways to use them.
i am glad i did this because it made me use a lot of my die cuts more and papers in different ways.

scroll on down for pictures of what it looked like inside....warning there are loads of them!!!!
if you see somethign you like and want to know how i made it or did it please feel free to ask :>




tomorrow i'll show you the card i made
and how i had to wrap it all up-that was a mission all in it's own!!!

cheers ears

Wowee!!!> I love it. I saw your cover photo at Split coast stampers and just had to go and have a gander at the rest of the pages. Absolutely great and if this is your first shabby chic style then you are way, way over my head. My first one is at and you leave me for dead.
