Spellbinders Explore Beyond- International Flair

I am privileged and excited to be part of the 
2013 Spellbinders Explore Beyond Team
as an International Blog Ambassador. 
Here in Australia we will be celebrating 
Mothers Day on May 12th. 
What do you give grandparents and great-grandparents 
when they want for nothing?
You give them memories!
This Mini Photo Book is made entirely of Spellbinders Dies.
Using my favourite go to cutting machine:
The covers were made using the third smallest size of:
I then embossed it using:
The two frames were cut from:
The sentiment is by:
JustRite Royal Antique Labels One CL-03840
Ink: Tsukineko Black Tuxedo Me-00-900 Fade Resistant Dye 
and cut with Just Rite custom dies:
Flowers and pearls are by KaiserCraft.
Xyron 5" Creative Station


Assembling the signature pages with the inside frame cut out of Antique Frames and Accents.
Papers are from Kaisercraft Elegance Collection
The photos slide out and are attached to the Antique Frames.
The signature pages were cut with the second smallest:
and folded into thirds. 
The blue piece was cut from the third smallest:
The ribbon buckle was cut from:

 The photo frames slide back into their pockets.

Card-stock made by Bazzill


  All the pages were held together with the middle cut-out of the Spellbinders Antique Frames and Accents, folded in half and glued together. I try not to waste anything and reuse/recycle.

Edited 29 April 2013: I was asked what the whole album weighed, with 10 photos inside it weighs 70grams or 154ounce, great weight if you are thinking of posting it overseas



Footnote: I had such a great time making this album. I looked through each photo and the memories of how wonderful and privileged it is to be a Mother encased me and made my heart warm and reminded me that I have so much love to give to my two girls. xoxoxo
