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:

The two frames were cut from:

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 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

Mothers Day Card

 Mother's Day is just around the corner, are you ready? I love themed cards, it makes one think about who we are making the card for and the memories that it evokes. Usually around Mother's Day I think of my two girls and without them I would not be a mother (and a proud one at that) and enjoy all the goodness that comes with that privilege.
 This card was made using Bazzill white, lime and pink cardstock. Kaisercraft Secret Admirer Collection P1002 Sweetheart, I love their new papers, also used their pearls. Stamps by JustRite Botanical Medallions & Banners CR-03705. Ribbon and mother stamp by SU. 
Ink by Tsukineko Black Tuxedo-ME-000-900 fade resistant dye ink.
