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!

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! 🙂

Hello Handsome Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog, Melissa here with you today. I have a new male scrapbook layout to share with you and we all know how tricky the male layouts can be, so I hope you like this one.

For this layout I have used Little Birdie’s ‘The Classic Gentleman’ collection. I ripped the cog image card stock in pieces, used brown ink for the edges and used mounting tape to attach it onto the main cardstock.

I fussy cut the images and arranged them around my photo.

I ripped some corrugated cardboard and tucked it under the dimensional cardstock piece.

I coloured the cog chipboard with some ‘Wild Wasabi’ arcylic chalk paint and attached the pieces slightly tucked under the side openings.

To finish off the layout I sprinkled some bling randomly.

I hope you liked my latest layout and I hope you found some inspiration through this one.

I will be back with some more crafty inspiration for you soon. Until then..happy crafting! 🙂
