New Season

Labor Day means putting away my white shoes, linen clothes, and sandals. Call me old fashioned, but that's what I do. I think it is because I love tradition and autumn. And the beginning of September means a new Close to my Heart Idea Book!

I have been busy making all sorts of projects using products from the new catalog. And, being a stickler for the rules, I have waited until after September 1 to reveal them.

First I present you with a laced accordion album I made for a friend's wedding.

Perfect Day Accordion Album

I left the picture space blank so she can add photos of the two of them. The paper I used is from CTMH's My Reflections Perfect Day Level 2 paper packet. I also used some My Stickease from levels 1 and 2 as well as coordinating cardstock. This paper packet features 3 of our new colors, Tulip, Sorbet and Juniper. We have another color called Creme Brulee.

Second is a Star Book I made in a Big Picture Scrapbooking class. I have seen star books on other blogs and elsewhere online and have wanted to make one for quite some time now. This class was a blast! In addition to paper crafting, I learned some bookbinding techniques.


That's it for now, but trust me. I have much more!

Hi Rachel. I am trying to catch up visiting everyone but a little slow - once you get behind it is hard to catch back up.

The accordion album is wonderful. Fantastic job with the details. It looks like you have been pretty busy.

Take care:)

Cool binding with ribbon! Love these papers. I was contemplating getting the whole collection and I think these projects sold it.

Very nicely done.
