Morning all,....

 It's finally finished, my photo storage album that's for my niece who loves to travel.
It measures 10 1/4" x !0"x 4" and closes up as a box. I did use binding to help close the box but in hindsight it really doesn't need it as the box lid fits so well.
It is very sturdy as I used 2mm chipboard and decorated it throughout with the lovely "Cityscapes" collection from Graphic 45.
There are a total of 10 pages (20 sides) decorated both sides, with many additional flap pages, flip-flaps, pockets etc and each "page" has a large pocket which holds a large pull out  tab which can be used as a journal or more photo storage. I've only shown the front cover, side view and the album open at the first page so you can see how the sides drop down. I had so much fun doing it.
I will be moving forward with technology and will soon be able to show this and other albums onYouTube where you'll be able to see them properly.

More news...........

I will be demonstrating on Hochanda on Monday 20th (7 am  &1 pm ) using magic markers to decorate Johanna Basford 12" x 12" art canvasses which are fab!!
 I can't put one down once I start and have to set an alarm as I get so engrossed.

It's a busy week ahead as I will be back on Hochanda Friday 24th (8 am & 2 pm) demonstrating products for "A touch of Eleganza" using stamps and papers from Studiolight.
 I'll be posting sneaky peeks during the week.
 A huge thank you to my crafty friends who are helping to make up some wonderful samples, we're having such a good time when we all get together, and its amazing how many different ideas happen as we "spark" off each other.
Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely weekend,


  1. Hi Maggie love these albums you showed on Hochanda, do you do courses, if not where are you? Many thanks

    1. Hi
      so glad you liked them. They are so much fun to make but very addictive once you start. At present I don't do courses but am looking into that possibility and also a you tube channel. I live in Cambridgeshire, and you can contact me via email:
      hope this helps,
