Polkadoodle Challenge Week 2 - Love

It's Friday again and another Polkadoodle challenge! This week, the challenge has been set by Polkadoodle creator, Nikky and her challenge is:


The Design Team were asked to use her brand new cd Love, Marriage and More. I created a little book of 4 Wedding photos. You will have seen the acrylic album I made for Donna and Danny and I thought I'd make something smaller (and quicker!) for this challenge!

I've actually used one of the frame toppers from the Boundless Love collection - the word Love was already on the topper and I've added the names and date. On the reverse of each page I've used part of the design sheet - I selected an area that I wanted, copied and pasted it into word and then resized it to fit my project.

The red card is from my stash and it is a lovely leather effect finish which just does not show up in the photos!

I've used the smallest Nestability die in the set to create the aperture for the photos (printed in black and white) and then hole punched down one side of the book and tied it together with red ribbon from my stash.

I've used a thick white linen card from The Papermill shop to print on as it adds a lovely texture and makes the pages sturdy even before layering them together.

I actually thought it would take me ages to make this little album but it took around 3 hours in total including printing, resizing the images and making it. Not bad for a Sunday afternoon!
Hope you can join us in our challenge - you have until 12noon on Sunday 24 January to enter. Good luck!!
