Pop-up Purse Album

This is another class from the Cardinal Colours Retreat which I was able to take the kit away to make up at home following the instructions from the DVD included in the kit.
The Pop Up Purse Album was designed by Karen Burniston.

The kit content includes so much lovely stash. Products from Creative Imaginations IOD line. Including double sided 12x12" papers, flower brads, epoxy stickers, cardstock die cut stickers, brads (fabric, epoxy, gems and pearls). Then there is the 6x6" chipboard pieces, magnets,templates, wire, ribbon and the DVD.

I decided to use a collection of photos from a lovely day spent with friends who lived in Tunbridge Wells at the time. On the day I have scrapped we all wet to Groombridge.
 This was back in about 1984.

This shows the front of the album.

Here are the first two pages. 

The next double page spread.

Another double page.

The last double page including this delightful pop up handbag.

Detail of how the magnet closure is hidden under this epoxy ladybird sticker. 

This was an incredible project to work on, the instructions and templates made it very easy to follow, and it all came together very well.
Jill still has a few kits in stock and the price is fantastically good value considering all the stash you get. I have plenty left over for more scrapbook and cardmaking projects.
If you want to purchase a kit take a look HERE.

I used these photos and many other of these friends (Frances, Steve, Helen and Amy), from the 1980's onwards to create one of the first albums I ever made when I started scrapbooking back in 2003. I think I will put together a slide show as it is amazing to look back and see how your scrapbooking changes over the years.
