Morning everyone!!

Today, I'm sharing something I'm really proud of and I hope you love it, just as much as I loved making it!! So, without further ado...ta~dah....here is my Memories Album!!! Sorry for the photo overload but there was a lot to show...so, sit down with a nice cuppa and enjoy....
Would you believe that this actually started life as two cardboard boxes??? But with a lick of paint from a couple of Adirondack Paint Dabbers, I transformed those boxes into these brushed metal look covers, which I then went about decorating, with lots of my favourite bits and pieces and using some of my favourite Sizzix/Tim Holtz dies!!
The flowers are all made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die from Sizzix and I coloured the plain cream card using Dylusions Spray Inks and Perfect Pearls Mists from Ranger. I've added various bits of Tim's Idea-ology, including the fab Hitch Fasteners, which woohoo....are finally back!!!

For the inside of the book, I used paints, inks and some of my favourite stamps from Tim.

So, that's about it from me for today and I really hope I've inspired you to make a little memory book of your own!! They are such fun to make and I really enjoyed building up the pages....now, all I need to do is fill them with photos and voila!! I'm done!!

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at what I've created and I'm really looking forward to reading all your lovely comments!
See you all soon...bye for now!
Love Emma xxx


  1. Amazing project Emma, love both the in and the outside!! The flowers are stunning (I need lessons!!lol) and each of the inside pages is so creative! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. Emma this is the most amazing project I have seen you create. The colours are stunning, and the brushed metal effect you have achieve is fantastic.
    The inside pages are edgy and modern, yet classic enough to compliment any memory you wish to add.

  10. This is lovely. I am blogging a album tomorrow as a DT piece that I have been making for my sister. I have nabbed your use of the filmstrip ribbon as I could not see what was lacking on mine until I saw your's, so then I had to redo my final photo and resend it all to her to blog. lol I will link to you in my post. But I must say your's is lovelier than mine, and has a lot more going on. x
