Nordic Christmas Album

Good evening everyone, wow !! Your all in for a treat tomorrow Tonic Studios Launch the Christmas Nordic collection on Hochanda at 10am these dies are fantastic try and think outside the box a little bit with them and you will see you can make alsorts from wedding boxes to tag boxes tag books, albums birthday books ,bunting the list goes on and on . I was lucky enough to have a really good play with this launch I have lots to share with you over the weekend. Any questions just add them in the comments and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Right I set a bit of time to one side for this project I will say it took some card and a lot of die cutting but it was so worth it. I used the Envelope from the die set and created  an envelope album I thought this would make a beautiful gift in each envelope there is a Xmas card if you put a slightly smaller card inside you could include the envelopes. I know in the past I have made gifts similar but not as nice as this and they have been very well received. So here we go.

Materials needed :-
Merry Christmas sentiment from 2017
Nordic Christmas die sets Envelope and gift tag
Memory albums pine creator
Craft perfect Avocado Green card Stock
ivory Craft perfect Card Stock
Harvest gold Mirror card craft perfect
Die cutting Machine Nuvo craft deluxe Adhesive
Nuvo red liner tape

First you will need to make a spine this is created using the memory book 2 spine die, measure the envelope from the Nordic collection and work out what length spine you need just like you would when making a memory book.then decide how many envelopes you wish to put inside,this album has 6 envelopes placed inside so you only need to die cut the hinge die once make sure once you have folded the hinge back and forth you place it on another piece of card to add some strength to the album.

When you have die cut and made all your envelopes up you will need to add a strip of red liner tape to the bottom of each envelope and place wet adhesive to the upper part of the envelope and sick one envelope to one side of the hinge and the other to the other side of the hinge sticking 2x envelopes back to back.

To make the card to slide in and out I doubled over the card stock and just edged the die over the  spine so your only cutting 3 sides and then cut the detail part and place on top of the card blank. The inside pockets to hold the tag are from the flap of the envelope just adding red liner tape to the sides and bottom it makes a lovely pocket for the tags.

4 tags were made for  this envelope album 2x in the front pocket and 2x in the back pocket
The album cover is made just as you would make a cover for your albums and there are lots of videos on jodies group now. cover the inside of the album front and back to add strength to the album.

Thank you for visiting my blog , I hope you will click the follow button on the right side of my blog you will then receive a notification every time I blog something for Tonic.
Enjoy the shows and have a great weekend everyone xx

To create this card you will need to cut a frame with the bowscale die set this will be placed over the the decorative panel on foam pads to add some dimension to your card. The decorative panel is made die cutting the decorative bookmark died and cutting into your card stock just lining up the die with a very slight gap between each section this is then glued down to the pistachio green layer and glued flat to the card base then the frame added on top.
The tag was was die cut in matching colours and a decorative double bow was added in gingham ribbon and finished by adding a sentiment- for you placed onto a frame from the memory book 1 die set again using co-ordinating  card stock and adding ivory seashell nuvo drops to the corner of the frame.

Materials used:-
Bookmark & tag die set

The card was made using 2 of the largest tag die sets and placing a score line in the back of one of the tags then covering with decorative papers and inking around the edge with Nuvo brown  hybrid ink using a Tonic blending sponge.
A pocket was created for the front using the outer die from the sweet nothing - Sent with love die set.
And the placing this to the front of the card with wet glue  the bookmark was  die cut with the back panel in Kraft card-  decorative papers and Ivory craft perfect all glued flat then a decorative tassel was added punching a whole in the top of the tag and threaded through. The front of the bookmark holder is decorated with one of the tags from the same die set and finished with Nuvo drops in tow colours and using a pokey tool drag your tool through your drops just leaves a lovely decoration.

To create just a plain pillow bag you will need to trim off the handles but keep both the glue table at the bottom of both die cuts these will hold your pillow box together just to give you more choice. For this pillow box I went with patterned papers and a vellum wrap.

Materials needed :-
Lattice Lily pillow box die set 
Cream card stock 240gsm
Patterned papers
Pink -craft perfect 
 This is with the handle in place as a full pillow box,you will need to trim off one of the glue tabs at the bottom , the glue tab at the bottom and the top half of the bag have been glued together with wet glue left to dry and decorated flat as it's much easier and then once dry you can flip in the side pieces making sure the decorated edge is to the outside of the bag, the bow was then put in place using a hot glue gun.

Memory albums 2 Christmas Themed

Good morning everyone, just popping by to share the Memory Book 2 collection with you from Tonic Studios,also at the bottom of this blog post you will find a step by step slide show of me talking my way  through a basic album ,you  certainly  love these albums and being a newbie to albums myself I am  getting a bit addicted.
The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.

All the album is decorated with craft perfect card stock apart from the red base card which is fill a box and is 3oogsm so you can imagine this album is really sturdy as it's 600gsm when All the pieces are stuck together.
The decoration was snow flakes from Tonic Studios and the decorative papers are from every crafts a pound 6x6 paper pads.
This album has the two pages stuck back to back leaving a side pocket to add an extra page for a photo and journaling. 

Magnets for the album flaps are 10mm x 1mm and lots available from amazon & ebay.

Thank you for visiting my blog today Be sure to click the follow button if you would like to see more of my makes

Below is a basic album slide show of putting one together,I hope this helps if you get stuck just leave a comment or message me on FB no problem.

Until next time
