Accordion Flip Album

Hi everyone and a huge welcome to new followers. Its lovely to have you join me here in Blogland. 

Below is an Accordion Flip Album  in a vintage style.

The Sizzix dies that I used were designed by Karen Burniston and I love the way that it folds in to a little book/album and when you open it you can view all the details inside. You require to purchase 2 dies to make this album. The accordion album and the frame and label die.

Each section of the album is die cut separately and then adhered together, enabling you to  have as many pages as you require. I distressed the album pages before adhering them together. I did not attach the centre pieces until I had adhered the labels and stamped tissue paper. Embellishments could also be added.

Papers used were from Tim Holtz Paper Stashes and the stamps/sentiment used were from TH Stamper's Anonymous range. 
The papers were blended with Vintage Photo and Salty Ocean,  (the die cut album was blended with Spiced Marmalade)






 

I would like to enter this album in the following challenges : 





THanks again for dropping in x Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I will catch up with you soon. Although I dont play golf I do enjoy watching it and this is the first year that my DH and I have not attended on one of the British Open days. Although he has made a fantastic recovery it would just be too much to spend a whole day walking around following your favourite golfers/queing at the stands, especially in these higher than average temperatures..................so we are enjoying it at home.

Take Care and Crafty Hugs
