All our new Mixed Media Albums in Black, Ivory and Kraft!

Nichola has the best idea for her mixed media album for fairy magic and beautiful memories! She used our Kraft Mixed Media Album and Once Upon a Springtime for this gorgeous idea. There are so many possibilities with these albums. What will your imagination come up with?

"This book is actually a work in progress. It isn’t filled yet. I’ll be using it to sketch, plan and chronicle my fairy adventures this summer. Every year I work closely with the little people to build houses, picnic areas and camps for my fairy friends. Children (and grown ups too) come to visit to see if they can spy winged creatures on my lawn. What could be more perfect for fairy planning than Once Upon a Springtime?! I wanted to make this book look as though it was discovered in the forest, old and well worn, with a dash of magic too but I also wanted to make it practical enough to be put to good use. The outside embellishments are not over-the-top and inside I’ve been conservative too. I’ve grunged up the divider pockets, and only used small die cut labels as embellishments. Sometimes a little touch is all  you need." ~Nichola

Katie shows you how fabric and our Black Mixed Media albums are a match made in heaven! We love this An ABC Primer album. So absolutely fantastic!

"Inspired by one of g45 DT teammies, Nadya who does gorgeous fabric-based paper albums, I just wanna make one (though it’s not as gorgeous as Nadya’s). I tea-dyed my left-over polka dot fabric just to blend in well with the vintage ABC Primer collection and made this school sketchbook, ready for a student for this new year..." ~Katie

I have the kraft mixed media album (it's fabulous!) which I plan to use for a new baby album for my nephew and his wife. They're expecting a boy, so it has to be more masculine than Miranda's album...I'll probably use the Cherished Memories collection:)

The books are just amazing. Thank you for sharing.
