A Page in my Album

Just a quick post :)  I am in the middle of making my first mini album and this page of the album is for the Cherry Lynn Challenge 'Lace'.

For this page I first covered both sides of white card with the backing papers I wanted to used and then cut the shape with a Spellbinder die.  Next I started to decorate the page.  Each page in my mini album will have a pocket with a tag inside and each tag will have an inspirational saying.  The one on this page says 'I don't just want to survive, I want to live'.  After the page I attached some lace at an angle then created the pocket by by cutting a quarter circle and embossing it with a heart embossing folder. This was attached to the card and some lovely maroon lace I have was added.  Next I used my lovely Cherry Lynn Dreamcatcher die to make three circular doilies which I attached over the edge of the embossed circle section and placed a gem in the centre of each.  I printed the text for the tag and then cut it out with an XCut die and added pink ribbon and a small flower so it is easy to pull out the pocket.

  • White card from Craft Creations
  • Dies used - Cherry Lynn Dreamcatcher, Spellbinder Grand- Labels 1, X-Cut - large tags
  • Ribbon, backing paper, lace, flower and gems from my stash.
I am entering this album page in the following challenges:-


  1. Ooooh, how pretty .....I love the idea of an album of inspirational words. I love all the lace and embossing. Now can we count the ways you have used your Dreamcatcher die ...1 ...2....3.... well, let's just say enough to know that it is amongst your favourites. This has all the promise of being an awesome project and I'm excited about seeing more pages so please do not. .... I repeat, Not, leave your craft room until you've produced more pages.
