Gatefold Album - Entry 1 for Itsybitsy Challenge 13

Hi friends...
today i am happy to share my latest work on Mini albums - Gatefold Album.
Based on the tutorial Corenescreation , i have created this album .

Papers are from ItsyBitsy's Little Birdie 'Cottage Lace ' Paper collection.
Flower embellishments are from Little Birdie brand.
The inside of the album are done without any embellishments ,as i felt the pattern papers were enough to add beauty to the same.









1st entry for the  challenge -

Handmade flowers with Papers bought from ItsyBitsy

Hello there..

Today i would like to share my long time pending post about handmade flowers with different papers bought from ItsyBitsy store.
I have been making flowers quite some time. My main challenge is always to get the right sheet of paper to get the right outcome.
Few days back,thought of trying papers from the ItsyBitsy store.
Here is the store link https://www.itsybitsy.in/ 

Flower made using Gold tissue paper of size approx.1 ft.
(My long time desire to make a gold flower! )
Here is the link to purchase : https://www.itsybitsy.in/products/papercraft-papers--card-stocks-papers/itsy-bitsy/premium-tissue-paper-gold/pid-12914516.aspx 




These flowers are made using Deckledge  Papers from the store.
I loved making flowers from these.  Dies are used to cut the flower shape and misted with water , so that they become flexible and  the petals are twisted and shaped very easily.
( Had purchased only Raisin and Tanquil Blue as a trail . Now time to grab all the colours availble ;) )

Here is the link to purchase : https://www.itsybitsy.in/products/papercraft-papers--card-stocks-papers/itsy-bitsy/deckledge-paper-raisin/pid-12914514.aspx




These flowers are made using Thick Vellum sheets. 
I really liked the outcome.

Accordion card/album + Photo Tutorial and a Greeting card.

Hello there!

Today i would like to share with you all my latest work on the newly launched paper pack 'Succulent Garden' by ItsyBitsy.
Loved this pack, its very bright and colorful.

I thought of trying a Accordion card/album for this paper and had came across a tutorial of the same in YouTube sometime back.

Also, why not post a photo tutorial for this. it that awesome! ?

So, grab some coffee, sit back , relax as you go through this picture heavy post :)

Have fun guys!


Loved this paper pack!!!




I have used embossed black card stock from Itsy bitsy of A4 size - 2 sheets and 
cut them into 6 by 12 and scor at  4, 7 1/2, 11 inches
Cut another card stock at 6 by 11 inches and scor at 3, 6, 8 1/2 inches.




Join them together in such a way, when folded it forms a 'step' accordion.




Cut Green Card stock in the following measurements :

2  - 2 3/8 by 5 7/8 inches
2 - 2 7/8 by 5 7/8 inches
2 - 3 3/8 by 5 7/8 inches
1 - 3 7/8 by 5 7/8 inches

Cut Pattern papers in the following measurements :

2 - 2 1/4 by 5 3/4 inches
2 - 2 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches
2 - 3 1/4 by 5 3/4 inches
1 - 3 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches




Also, fussy cut the cute Succulent figures and sentiments. Approx. 16 inches Green organza ribbon required to fold together the card.




Now, lets make a Box envelope for the card.
I have chosen green card stock for the same of size 10 by 10  inches.
Using MS scoring board, i have made the envelope with the help of the measurement guide given on the board. 
I have taken the width of card as 3/4 inches so that the card can fit in easily. 





The edges are cut as shown for neat finish.




Here it is !
Accordion card/Album with a Box envelope!
Had fun creating this.



Here is the unfolded view of the card/album.
I have inserted small pockets to hold tags and space for photos too.





Succulent paper pack is very apt for making greeting cards too.
So, thought of giving a try on a CAS card.

Isn't that cute ?


Thats all for today. :)
