May 15, 2010: Italian Squash Album

Pin It Now! Thought you guys might be getting tired of cards - I do other projects, I promise. :)

This is a squash album I made on commission - I also made a matching card, which I'll try to remember to post tomorrow. The recipients were moving to Italy, and my customer wanted a mini album that they could put photos and memorabilia in of their move. I chose the squash design because it has a lot of visual impact and I really wanted to showcase these 12 x 12 papers.

I chose a mixture of diecuts and purchased embellishments to decorate the front. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Shadowbox Sizzix Alphabet! It's an all-time favorite. I really like the way the I can use solid cardstock to frame my patterned paper letters. So cool. In my tiny craft space it is hard to justify such a large set (mine is in two Sizzix towers) but it is worth it to me!

The back I chose to work with this cool paper I found, so I dolled it up with a few additional stickers and added my regular "Elin's Elegant Designs" stamps somewhat haphazardly as if they were country stamps on the passport. So pleased with how it came out!
