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.
And for the current challenge at Craft O'clock blog, with this beautiful color combination:

Just be yourself - an art journal for Art and Soul Studio

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:
I was also inspired by two more challenges:

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:

Parisian Chic - CSI case file no. 265

I'm a little late with my lo for the new case file at CSI - case file no. 265, which has this beautiful inspiration photo:
This time I went free style, and not 'old school' as usual.
I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo and fashionable look on the whole, so I decided to use a photo (one of many) of a street lamp on one of the bridges over the Seinne in Paris.
Street lamps are one of my fav things, and I can take hundreds of photos of a single one LOL.
I did use some to the clues from the case file: checker pattern, frames, text print (hardly can be seen, but it is on the pale gray pp under the photo), arrows, metal, triangles, something ahiny and gold/silver accents.

All pp are Lemoncraft's from the Heart Painted collection.
I used Lindy's Gang products:
Chipboards are Creative Embellishments and Scrapiniec. I also used a Creative Embellishments' flair button (the other one is from StudioFourteen40). 
For the final touch I splatter some mists and added enamel dots
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Together Forever - GD for Scrap The Boys

I was very honored to be invited to be a Guest Designer at Scrap The Boys for November, with the them of: 
The only problem was to decide who will be my valentine - my eldest boy or the younger? Choosing one, or the other, could have caused WW3.... LOL
So I solved the dillema by picking a photo of me with my eldest, while I was pregnant with the youngest. So it's me with my two men.
I've used the Beautiful Altair Art papers, from the Ever Dream collection, and did a lot of fussy cutting.
I did some stamping here and there and used Lindy's products to add color to this beautiful pp. I used: 
sprays: Sweet Violet Purple Teal, Aloha Avocado.
ep: Weeping Willow Green Gold, Mery-Go-Round Green, King Midas Gold.
magical shaker: Bavarian Blue.
The chipboards are all Creative Embellishments.
Here are some close-ups:

I really loved working on this layout. I hope you like it.
