What a great concept. Every year I hand make a family Christmas album from photos taken at our annual Fish Night dinner - 60 to 70 family members in all! I'm always looking for new ideas on how to create albums that will house these precious memories.

Good inspiration with the accordionfold used as spine. I created a 'letterbak' (google translate says it's called type case in English?) from chipboard, painted it with black gesso and then I have decorated it with old curiosity shop DCE and some embellishments of my own. Can't post a photo here I think, at least I don't know how.

I have loved the combination of Wonderland and crazy, spooky Halloween. It's so imaginative. I've never made a book like this one, but it looks so great I'm going to have to try it. Thanks for sharing your creativity so I don't have to be so creative. LolThabks for the chance to win these amazing papers. I have fairies everywhere in my house and garden only second to all my precious kitties. Rescues all... my friends call me crazy! I call myself lucky!

Love everything G45! Have you ever thought about offering your paper in a digital format? I do a lot of digital scrapping or a combo of digital and physical elements. Would love to be able to add G45 stuff to the mix!

I'm especially fascinated by the details created in each of your projects . . . the little things that make all the difference . . . and of course the craftsmanship . . . because nothing ruins a great design that's not executed well. Your tutorials are the best because you not only include ALL the steps necessary you also include the very best detailed photos. Thanks so much for all the work your team puts into each project!
