This is my last project for my Guest Designer Spot over at
Crafting With Dragonflies for the month of April.
The theme this time is to take an old CD and alter it /or use on your card.
I chose to make a card mini album.
First thing was to find some CD's.
These were old ones I had been saving in my Stash to be reused at some point.
I started with sorting through my lace trims to get a colour theme going and chose
to work with Creams.
Next to look through my files of digi papers and finally my bling.
And then some more !!
I used the CD's as templates and cut my design papers to cover .
These are by Bearly Mine from their ' Steam punk -fantasy' range.
I used Mod Podge to glue and a distress ink round the edges to age .
I found my pink Crop-A-Dile cutters worked a treat to cut the holes that I needed.
Next came the fun part, piling on the embellishments.
I made pockets on the insides to hold tags by cutting half a circle and gluing to the lower halves.
Tags were made using my new Tag topper punch by SU. and tucked inside the pockets.
Wooden embellishments were in a selection I had purchased a few yrs ago and forgotten about!
Added loads of lace , assorted flowers, old broken jewellery and sequin shapes.
As the DP. had clock faces and fob watches on it
I found these freebie digi's on Beyond The Fringe
and used them on the tags leaving the other sides blank for messages.
The back showing another freebie watch
this time from Free vintage Digital Stamps
Lastly the front with the CD's tied together with loads of scrunchy ribbon and chains
Not quite sure whether I have achieved a vintage/shabby chic /steam punk or grungy look
but I love the result.
