I have had Bags of fun this weekend making this 20 page Handbag shaped chipboard album.
The new Bittersweet papers from Basicgrey are sooo lovely, rich chocolates and pretty strawberry pinks and lovely classic pattens and plain distressed solid colours make them really yummy.
I cut the pages with a die that I designed myself , that cuts a square handbag , I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder to emboss some of the card pages and I used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch the pages and I made pockets for 2 of the pages for tags etc.
Embellishing them with all sorts of stash (This was the fun part ); prima flowers , Bo Bunny antique brads & clipz, doodlebug gems, May arts ribbons were just a few of the things I used .
Then I punched holes with the big bite enabling me to bind the book using binding rings and added more ribbon to finish it off.
I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Love Susie xx
