When I got the super cool stuff for the Sidekick planner and saw that incredibly cool envelope I immediately thought….That’s a lot of fun to make a mini album. So I did but it wasn’t easy. In the end I am very satisfied and now it’s standing in my craftroom.
I made 5 envelopes, but before I glued them together, I tied them first. Like you tie a book. I found a tutorial on You-tube.
I made a cover with craft-board and added a ribbon in between so you can close the book with a bow.
The pendant is made with shrink-plastic and a stamp.
In each envelope there is a card with a picture on it. The cards are made with the note pieces set and Planner Essentials 4
The paper that I used is for a laser printer and therefore nice and firm. I’ve decorated it with acrylic paint and the Gelli plate, my latest addiction.
Blue had just been given a new collar here. Unfortunately he didn’t enjoy it for long, a week later he died suddenly.
And I’ve only ventured into the Selfies recently. I hate pictures of myself. Whose kids would have that anyway? hihi
For the closure I used eyelets, which was a bit fiddling with the Crop-a-dile but it worked.
This is what the bound book looks like before I glued it into the cover.
These are the dies I’ve worked with.
I thought it was a great project to work on and you can see that you can do a lot more with all those nice dies from the Sidekick Essentials line.
On the back of the book I attached flower lace.
For the Sentiment I used Sidekick Essentials 4.
I hope you are just as excited as I am about the new Sidekick Essentials dies. They are so versatile. And hopefully I’ve inspired you a little bit again.
See you next time!
