Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Good morning and a very happy Sunday. For my project today I've made a photo wallet using two beautiful Relatively Thoughtful collections Winter Wonderland and Christmas Vintage Postcards.

This base is cut with a huge A4 CoolKats die.

This sheet is from the Christmas Vintage Postcard collection, and I've used it for a layer for the front.
Then I chose my three main image papers. Winter Wonderland was the very first collection that I bought from Relatively Thoughtful, and it's still my favourite (don't tell my other papers lol)
Don't these look stunning as photo mats? These have been cut with another die from the photo wallet collection.
There's loads of paper left once the images have been cut out to make the final mats.
This is the inside. The images are so beautiful it will be a shame to cover them up. You can just see the slits in the corners where you can add your 6x4 photos.
This is the front, all tucked and folded away.
And this is the back. Of course I've used lots of glitter - it is nearly Christmas after all!
Some close -ups.

This is how it looks with a 6x4 photo
Or using it as a tuck spot for a smaller image.
As always the collections are available in the Relatively Thoughtful store.

Also check out our social pages where new inspiration is posted every day.

Take care and have a very happy week x

Here Come The Girls

 Good morning and a very happy Sunday!

Today I'm sharing a triptych that I made with the beautiful Poppy Fields collection from Relatively Thoughtful.

I started by cutting four black tags. Three are for the triptych, and the fourth is to make a little pocket for each. If I use the same die I know that they will fit.
I then taped the tags together so that they would stand up independently.
Aren't these papers beautiful? These are really nice nesting dies too as they just show a little border. This is the first layer done!
And this is my second set of tags. These will fit in the pockets of the triptych. These beautiful Poppy ladies are just a fraction of the cut-aparts in this collection.
You can see the little pockets here. There are also cut-apart sheets full of sentiments.
One of the lovely things about this collection is that there are plainer papers that really complement the fabulous patterned ones.
The Poppy ladies are SO pretty!
I've also added a little bit of glitter - well it would be rude not to!
As always the collection is available in digital and paper versions and can be found here in the Relatively Thoughtful store.
These cute Poppy girls are also available for FREE in the store here.

There's also a fun Christmas competition over on our Facebook page, so please pop across here to download your papers and join in!
I hope you have a lovely day whatever you are doing, and thanks so much for looking xx

Autumn Passions

 Good morning and a very happy Sunday. Today I'm sharing a small mini album made with the beautiful Autumn Passions collection from Relatively Thoughtful.

Again I've followed a Paul Lang Ford tutorial and I will put a link at the bottom of the post.

This is quite a small album, it's 6.25 x 4.25.

It has 6 tag pocket pages. If you pop across to Papercrafting With Paul he'll show you exactly how they are made.

The tags have been cut with the large G45 die and then turned into pockets.

I've used some of the images from the many cut apart sheets to make a pocket and a tuck spot.

I've put the tuck spot on the front cover and it will take 3x4 photos.
The pocket is on the back cover and will store 6x4 photos.
And just to prove it, look who's here again!
These are my 6 tags. Don't all these papers work beautifully together?
I've used a die to cut the slits into the paper so that you can change your photos around.
I've cut some of the images from the cut apart sheets to 3x4, and put them in place. That way you know where not to put your glue when you stick your paper to the base tag.

Such beautiful papers.

And I love the little pocket on the reverse. This will take 4x3 photos too.
Paul really is a genius when he designs his albums. He really knows how the get the most from the papers.

If I had to choose I think this is my favourite page.
I've die cut, then stamped and embossed loads of leaves for my front cover. I've also used some Little Birdie flowers that you can find in the store, together with images and a sentiment from the cut apart sheets.

Of course, I had to use some sequins and Glossy Accents too!
As always the collections are available here in Sally's store in both digital and physical paper versions.

There is new inspiration every day from my teamies and myself on our social pages.

For the full step-by-step guide on how to make this fabulous album please visit Paul's social pages.

I hope you like my album, why not have a go and make one for yourself.
Take care and have a very happy week!

My Birthday Mini Album Part 2

 Good morning and a very happy Sunday. Today I'm back with the second part of my mini album that I made with the Relatively Thoughtful Happy Birthday and Magic of Childhood collections. It's for my granddaughter's first birthday party next month, but I've added some recent photographs of her just to show how it will look.

This is the inside of the folio. Last time I showed the left side, so today it's the turn of the right. I've followed a tutorial by Paul Lang-Ford of Papercrafting With Paul, and I've added a link at the end of this post.
If you would like to see the first side please click here.

I also made lots of embellishments! There are tags, journalling strips, buttons, and lots of elements from the Magic of Childhood collection which goes perfectly with the Happy Birthday papers.
The top and bottom flaps open up.

Then when you close them the pages swing to the left. Then they open up. 

And up....

And up...
And up! It's 5 sides long when it's all open but unfortunately, I can't show them all open together. Try to imagine the two photos above joined together lol. I love how the rocking horses tie everything together

In the middle there is a pouch. I've made some tags and added white card to the back to write some details on.
This folio really does keep on giving! Just when you think you've finished you find another flap and more photos lol.
This lovely collection can be found here in Sally's store.
