Male Accordion Album

Hey there crafty friends! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog – Melissa with you today and I am sharing something new and different.

I thought I would have a go at creating an accordion album (just because) and decided to make it a male themed album.

To create this album I followed Einat Kessler’s tutorial on YouTube.

To see a quick flip through of my album, click on the YouTube link below.

I hope you liked my latest project. Maybe you can give this accordion album a try too someday.

I will be back with some more crafty inspiration very soon, until then…happy crafting!

Special Love – Scrapbook Layout

Hey there crafty friends! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog – Melissa here with you today and I am sharing a beautiful romantic red and white coloured layout. I hope you like it.

For this layout I have used 3Quarter Designs’ beautiful ‘Forever You’ collection.

I did some background stamping with a script stamp and mahogany ink to start with and then distressed and inked the photo matting pieces.

I cut up some hexagon chipboard and coloured it with gold wax.

I then arranged some elements around my photos, using mounting tape on some to create layers.

I arranged the flowers and used some gold wax on them, and then sprinkled some gold glitter over the top as well and around the layout for some sparkle.

I heat embossed the title and attached it to the bottom of my photo.

I hope you liked this layout, I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration. Until then…happy crafting! 🙂

Together Forever – Scrapbook Layout

Hey there crafty people! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog.

Today I have a new DT layout, filled with beautiful Autumn colours. I hope you like it.

For this layout I have used the Autumnal Equinox card stock and elements collection from 3Quarter Designs.

I cut some burlap lace and placed it behind my photo – a piece vertically and a piece horizontally.

I arranged some cut out pieces from the collection as photo matting.

I embossed the chipboard borders, used Little Birdie sparkle paste on the chipboard flowers and used metallic paint on the title.

I attached some beautiful Little Birdie flowers, as well as some other unbranded ones in between.

To finish off, I used some glitter accents on some of the flowers and also sprinkled some gold bling over and around the layout.

I hope you were able to find some inspiration from my latest creation – I will be back very soon with some more crafty inspiration. Until then…happy scrapping! 🙂
