Bella Bleu Tri-Shutter Album

Before Christmas I was running a class to make a Tri-Shutter Album using the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit, like the one Andrea Walford has done. It was a very popular class and just like the Christmas Card Tin I did, I wanted to revamp it so I made this a few weeks back using the Bella Bleu Designer papers.

I've made quite a few of these albums now in different colour combinations and although they look complicated they're really not. They measure 6" x 8" and use 2 sheets of 12x12 cardstock to make the bare bones of the album.I've incorporated the Baroque Motifs stamp set and the very gorgeous Medallion stamp on the front of this one. There's no photo's in it just yet as it was something I was going to do last night and guess what, the printer ran out of ink. Here's a few shots of the inside though... And some a bit closer...

A greeting from the Whimsical Words, Sale-a-bration set..

These albums make a great gift, I made one for my Mother and Father in law last year for a 50th wedding anniversary which they loved. And something I didn't realise till quite recently, pointed out by one of my customers, they fit perfectly in the A5 silver tins!

Tfl,

Like many others I would love to buy the instructions for this album/card (also for the Card Tote). I have seen your work on the demo side of ILWS and it's fantastic.
