Another Crafting Weekend



It's been one of those weekends where I crafted but felt dissatisfied with the results.

On Saturday evening, after a serious writing workshop in the afternoon, I took out the Echo Park Happy Days Collection Kit that I purchased and started making an album. I wanted to make an album using a die cut shape as a test. On top of that, I wanted to try using up the entire collection of items within one project. It's impossible. Besides not being able to finish up everything, I also found a duplicate purchase. Frustrating. Goes to show scrapbooking items actually go a long way!



Here's the resulting album. I think in the next album of this shape, I will punch the zutter holes differently. I also got some feedback from E and incorporated some decoration on the banner on the cover as well as hanging the embellishments on the spine as a "charm".  Let me know what you think?

























Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

  7. Love the bracket shape mini album, beautifully decorated and the patterned papers are gorgeous. Instead of binder wire, maybe you can opt for binder ring for easier flipping.

  8. hi paperpapier! thanks for the tip. it's not that hard to flip though, and i wanted a sturdier binding so i chose the binder wire. but on hindsight, i shouldn't have tried to stuff so many pages into the album! ^_^
