Something Different Sunday...

Happy Sunday...

As I mentioned yesterday I wasn't able to post this yesterday and so Saturday becomes different Sunday!  I also have to say that I am a little disappointed with today's different which is a Photo album.  Last week I mentioned to hazel at work that I was struggling to think of anything for this weeks different project.  She sent me straight off to the Charity Shop next door to find inspiration and I did!  I now have loads of things to up-cycle and ideas of what to make.

This album is simply covered with a sheet of PMD white cardstock into which I have die cut Spellbinders Gold Elements one corner in a square pattern.  I placed a sheet of parchment behind the die cut then foam mounted this onto the front of the album.

Next I added a ribbon tie under the front and added a frame of gold mirror card.  The sentiment, designed as an anniversary gift, is stamped then embossed before being mounted on top.  A simple construction process that took hours of measuring and cutting!
