Heartfelt Creations Inspirational Mini Album in Altered Box

CAUTION LONG POST:  Greetings fellow bloggers.  Today is another Heartfelt Creations Garden Romance Project and I have created a mini album in an altered box.  This was so much fun to make!
 This is what it looks like tucked into the box.  The inspiration for this piece comes from all the beautiful albums I see on YouTube.   My desire to create an album has been overwhelming.  I would love to have the time to make more of them and get better at it!   I used almost every stamp from the Garden Romance collection when I created this.
Below is the picture of the front cover of the Album

If you have stayed with me the entire album (I know this was long) I will tell you that I made the album out of cereal boxes.  I cut the cardboard 4" x 3" and used a corner rounder.  I covered the cardboard with scrapbook paper and used to eyelets on each page so I could bind with twine.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I really do appreciate it.  Be sure to stop by on Friday as Cottage Cutz at The Scrappy Cottage is having a Blog Hop and you could win a gift certificate for some of their wonderful dies

Emily Keaton said...

Oh, MY! Carol, that looks so involved but completely sweet. You make the BEST projects!! I loved seeing each and every page. GORGEOUS!

Wow! I adore all this - so much eye candy and beauty!!! It is almost as cool as last year's stawberry book (almost but not quite - I think that strawberry book is my all time fav little book in the world). You know, I have almost bought those strawberry images a zillion times - I have gone to the site over and over and drooled over them but I keep telling myself that I couldn't even begin to do something as great as the strawberry book. Back to your current yummy creation - well done. I am guessing 8 to 10 hours of work and 4 lbs? LOL! Hugz!

Outstanding creation, Carol. I don't know where you find the time for all your beautiful work. I see Nancy guessed 4 lbs. If that is true, I'm going to make one of these. Ha Or, maybe several.

Oh, WOW! This is such a masterpiece, Carol. I'm so glad you photographed each set of pages so we can see the beauty inside as well as out. :)
