An accordion style mini album for Altair Art

Today it's my turn at Altair Art blog, and I'm sharing this lovely accordion style mini album, made with the beautiful papers from Ever Dream collection and Flower Harmony collection.
This mini was made for a sweet 15Y young lady, and it can hold more than 15 photos. there're pockets and inserts, and place for journaling.
I wanted it to remain flat, so I didn't use 3D embellishments, just a few fun stickers and enamel dots.
Here're photos of the spreads and the inside:

Merry Christmas card for Altair Art

The new challenge at Altair Art blog requires using a natural element on your creation, so I've added some twigs to my center element.
I've stamped a large script plus Christmas greeting stamp on a pp, cut it around and adhered it on a wooden look pp.
I stamped some leaves with embossing ink and then used Lindy's embossing powder - Black Forest Black. I fussy cut the leaves and colored them with different Lindy's Gang sprays - Ponderosa Pines Olive shimmer and Cathedral Pines Olive shimmer.
A large red flower on top, and the twigs around - and my card is done!
Here're some close-ups on the details:

Life is good - CSI case file no. 267

A new month, with a new challenge at CSI, case file no. 267:
For quite a long time I had no idea what to do with this case file. I don't celebrate Christmas and the moodboard was so so Christmas! 
Finaly, I decided to go 'freestyle' and to let myself be inspired by the colors scheme. I used a photo from our travel to Paris. When we walked down Champ-Elysees, we were caught in a heavey rain and found shelter at Paul's, warming ourselves with hot chocolate and macaroons.
When I looked for the matching pp, I came across an old My Mind's Eye paper, which had all the colors on on side, while the reverse side had a great geenish pattern. I wanted to use both sides of the paper, so I decided to make the folded circles. Who said you can't eat your cake and have it too?....
The design is kind of scraplift from Stacy Cohen.
The pp for the base is from Craftandyou and the pp for the photo matting are from Studio 75 'The Peony Avenue' collection.
I also used the following clues: dots, a tag, create your design using a grid.
My journaling, on the tag attached to the photo, describe this lovely moment.
Here're some close-ups on the details:

US - a mini album for Altair Art

Happy Saturday, it has been rainy here for the past two days, but now the sun is showing..
With this atmosphere, I'd like to share with you a mini album I've made as a DT for Altair Art blog.
This mini measures 8.25"x5", and althouh it has only 2 pages inside, it can hold more than 20 (!) photos, in different sizes, and lots of place for journaling.
I've made this mini from scratch - chipboards covered with efalin paper, decorated with the beautiful papers from Altair Art collection  called 'Nightfall':
To make this mini I've used the awesome tutorial by Frances Long (Your Book of Memories), and you can fine it HERE.
I also made a walk through video, to show all the treasures inside this mini album:
I'd like to enter this mini album to the current challenge at Mini Album Makers blog.

Happy Monday, I'm excited to share with you my creation as a Guest Designer for Art & Soul Studio blog.
I was inspired by the current challenge, which is a bold and beautiful moodboard, and you have to use red:
I took my inspiration from the feminine photos, the checkered pattern and the splatters, and decided to make an art journal, with a message from the older me to the younger me.
Here're some close ups:







I also made a video of the creative porcess:

Two notepad holders - for Altair Art

It's my turn on Altair Art blog, and I've made two notepad holders with beautiful papers from the 'Nightfall' collection.
The folders were built from scratches - chipboards covered with efalin paper (which is a perfect paper to wrap chipboard for binding, much more than cardstock!).
I then covered the front and back covers with beautiful papers from the Nightfall collection.
In the inside, there's a place for the notepad.  A belly band holds the notepad, so it can be replaced, once it's finished.
On the other inner side, there's a pocket for notes, and on top I've placed a paper clip, also covered with pp.
Here's a look to the inside part:

And some close-ups on the details:
