Altered album with shaker - Baby girl

As I often do, I start with some episode, I experience with my kids. Here is the dialogue I had the other day with my 7-year old daughter.

- Mo-o-o-m! Where are my sandals?

- Where should I know, maybe in the bag?

- Ahh, here they are!

- Is that the role, I have in the house, remembering for everyone, where the things are?

- No, mommy, it is your destiny!


Altered album in Scandinavian style

I love Danish design, and when you look around, there are many pastel colours, white and gold. New trend is creating that famous "hygge" - cousiness at home, without sharp accents. I made this mood board, looking through the new catalogue of Bolia.

That inspired me to alter old albums, I had in my stash, with a touch of the Scandinavian design. For the base I chose a think white fabric and beautiful design paper by Trimcraft "Paper Flowers" edition. I stitched the fabrik and the paper alongside the album cover. On the side, there is a trim of lace, with an eyelet for a tassel and feathers. Embellishments are centered around the shaker. I added a golden wreath with leaves, roses and other flowers. Doily by Tim Holtz is cut in two and added symmetrically in each corner.

The back of the album is kept rather simple. Paper comes from one of the favourite collections "Mariposa" DCWV, which is golden foiled bird cages. Inside the album there are approximately 50 white pages, which are kept as they are.

Thank you for stepping by, wish you a wonderful day!


I would like to enter this project for "Around the world in 80 days" marathon from Fabrika Decoru", visiting Scandinavia, as I guess I would be representing Denmark, where I live :-)
