Mini Accordion Album

I have just made a cute mini book from the new Couture Creations Hearts Ease papers - one sheet, three cuts and some folding creates the centre and one more sheet does the covers and lots of pull-out bits to pop into pockets inside.
These were the papers used, here is the album:

 I will be teaching this at the next Social Capers get-together on the last Monday night of this month. Phone the shop on 9448 4470 to book a kit if you'd like to join us.

CC HeartsEase

After teaching two cards from one of the new Couture Creations Hearts Ease papers I had three panels left over. We sent our class students home with a bonus kit for this card. It is copied from the CC magazine but I have added depth to my card by cutting around the flourish edges to recess the central panel and the area with the Kaisercraft large pearl brad. I will admit that the cutting took a while but the final effect is worth it! I have also lightly 'grunged' around the outer edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and edged all other cut edges with a Forest Moss Distress Marker.

The foliage is from a Couture Creations Vintage Branch die. The back pansy has a single thickness of Magic Mount, the front has double mount. The pansies were cut from another of the left-over panels.
