Jim, The Gentleman Crafter

HeadShot_super close

Jim has created a Graphic 45 Communique Hemingway Mini using our Communique paper and Playtimes Past collections along with a number of our Staples products, the metal Flowers and Chipboard buttons to name a few.  Here is what Jim has to say about this fabulous mini: "The Hemingway Album is 8 x 10.5"  The cool binding technique is held in place tightening the nuts and bolts onto the chipboard page units.  To allow for embellishments as well as the page thickness, I have stacked and adhered five, 1-1/4 x 6-1/2 pieces of medium weight chipboard.  I then adhered a binding strip to the stack.  I did this for all four page units."
