Embellishing Album Cover

Hello dear friends! 
Its Suzna here and I have to admit, when I received my DT package of beautiful DMC's

I really love these stuffs and I would say 80 percent of my projects use beauties from CC site
Today I will show you the album covers that I made for baby girl. This Album covered with a fabric and are so nice to hold them in the hands. Sometimes I make these type of albums as custom orders and really enjoy the baby theme the most. I already shared the idea of binding / Covering fabrics in my previous CC post

Check here Binding techniqueCovering technique

Here is an embellished cover of a Baby album: Prettypink 

The chipboards I have used is from Mudra and Wycinanka and the other fashion, bubble accessories from DMC and CC. I absolutely love it and think I need to buy some more designs. The flowers are all from prima. And those lace collection i bought it from different store


I hope you enjoyed checking out my project today.

Greetings Everyone
How have you been??

The entire team of Crafters Corner is super excited as the CRAFTY FEAST SEASON 3 is around the corners. I hope you all have booked your tickets.. Can't wait to see you all there.

Now coming back to my post I have a fun mini album which is inspired by wallet style and its super easy to make. But before that have a look ....

It is very simple, just basic tools and minimal accessories required to make this one.
I am in love this beautiful pattern paper by Dress My Craft Magnolias.
Magnolias pattern paper is new release by Dress My craft, Crafters Corner. It's a beautiful paper collection and also has Magnolia Motif sheet.

 I have a picture tutorial for you all, so let's get started.

Take a piece of cardstock measuring 8"x12" and score them at the 4" ,43/4" and 8",83/4".

Now take 3 pcs of cardstock measuring 4"x1" to make the hinges

STEP 3Lastly you will be needing 3 pcs of cardstock, measurement shown in image, I forgot to mention about belly band for that you will be needing one piece of cardstock measuring 12' in length and 2to 2.5 inches of breath, you can totally adjust as per your requirement and score the band at 4" ,43/4" and 81/4" and83/4"

Now attach the pages with hinge created and paste them on the base cardstock 8"x12"in the center area on the left hand side.
Once done it's ready to decorate with your favorite pattern papers.
Similarly attach the belly band and decorate the same and viola you are ready with your wallet style album.

Here are some more images which will explain better... how this album look-a-like.
The idea I had while creating this was to just maximize and emphasize pattern papers. Pattern papers are so beautiful and we always hide the beauty of them with embellishments, I hope I did justice to this gorgeous paper collection.

I hope you all like the mini album and was able to inspire you all.
Don't forget to keep checking the space for more inspiration.

Happy Crafting
Loads of love

Easy And Quick Scrabook Album Binding

Hey there! Suzna here......:-) 
Did you think I disappeared? I know it's been a few weeks since my last posting.
So my project today is a small scrapbook with easy binding technique. I took few the step by step pic. Hope u guys can understand.
And This is the cover design of my Album

This Album Binding originally by me ;-), Actually i am a lazy women - same time i am finding easy way to finish it.

Okay let start sharing the idea

Here i took 300gm Black cardstock, perfect for album pages

Main cover of scrapbook : I choose 1mm chipboard, In that i stick 300gm black cardstock. So that will get little more heavy weight cover.

These fabrics are Men's shirt pieces. Easily available in any textile shop.

This is rotary cutter, Easy to cut fabrics.

This is the way i am choosing pages. This album has only 2 pages. And i am planing each page can hold multiple pics.
  I start sticking with both cover sides. 
My album size : 6X8.5 inch
I score my cardstock like this : 8.5" - 9" - 9.5"
and the rest of the card stock is 2.5"
so that is the 1st page of my album
And i did same on other side too.

These two piece of cardstock going to sick on it. Like pocket style.

And here i stick small piece of fabric to cover / attach the 2 pages. Because of this style attaching pages (fabrics), this album can widely open.


Embellishing stuffs.

After pasting pattern paper, This is what my album looks like.

So how is my easy binding scrapbook Album? 
I hope you all like this Album
If you would like to create one of your own,
Don't wait for long, do it fast
Thanks for stopping by

Mixed Media Layout- Enjoy Today (with Step-by-Step Pictorial)

Hi folks!
Good Morning :)

For today's post, I've shared a Mixed Media Layout titled "Enjoy Today" and there is a Step-by-Step Pictorial as well :) The inspiration for the layout came from a photo of coffee, I simply love coffee, so I knew I had to create a layout around it. For me, coffee time is "me" time. I can sit, relax, be quiet for 5 minutes, sip my beverage, think & forget about other things. I wanted to remind myself that it is important to delight in the little things in life that give us joy & enjoy them today, to "live in the moment".

So let's get started :)

Mixed Media Layout- Enjoy Today

Here Are the Close-up Photos (to Show the Details):

Step-by-Step Pictorial:
(All the products used are linked to the Crafters Corner Store at the bottom of the post, if you wish to explore/shop)

1. On a sheet of  Dress My Craft's 12 by 12 sized Floral Oriental Collection White Cardstock, first applied white gesso to prep the page for mediums. Then I did ink smooshing to add color, by using different mediums. I used distress inks, Lindys Sprays and Zig Markers here. This card stock is meant for flower making so it takes water and mediums very well. I was happy that it did not warp at all. 

2. Created photo mats using papers from Dress My Craft's Dots n Stripes Paper Pack, distressed their edges and darkened them with distress ink to give better definition 

3. This is how the background looks after color is added, I also created a lot of ink splatters using a small sized brush. (Tip: Always keep tissues ready while doing any mixed media work, to quickly dab away excess color or errant drops)

4. Adhered the mats to the photo and created dimension between some of the layers by using 3d foam tape 

5. Added background stenciling using Tim Holtz stencils and distress ink 

6. Added vintage design washi tapes to the layout for visual interest

7. Did background stamping with multiple stamps using 3 shades of archival inks (browns and black)

8. To add more details to the layout, I used Tim Holtz rub ons, these are a great way to add quotes/text to difficult to reach spots, where stamping isn't possible. It is very simple to use them, just peel the backing paper, rub over the desired quote with the ice cream stick, a few times, putting a lot of pressure and poof, the quote transfers like magic! 

9. Heat embossed Dusty Attic Chipboards for the titles. (Heat embossing chipboards gives them added dimension and shine)

10. In the end, added Tim Holtz chit chat stickers, a little thread for texture and embellished the project with Dress My Craft Little Hearts and Sequins (used glossy accents to stick them) 

Products Used:
(All these can be bought/pre-ordered from the Crafters Corner store)

13. Mudra Craft Stamps- Simply Alpha (pre-order)
14. Dylusions Stamps- Basic Backgrounds (pre-order)
27. Lindys Gang- Midnight Bronze Embossing Powder (pre-order)
