I always say.... any photos I use with Teresa's products pretty much need to be black and white... and they work a treat! Working with orange, white, black and cream is new to me, and I enjoyed it!! This might even get me working with more colour and pattern than I have in the past!!
For this project, it will be a 2011 calendar of monthly photos with journaling blocks to list or write about events.
You can find 'Giving Thanks' here


Image




The cover was a bit stark white so I covered it with a thin layer of orange paint and it calmed it quite a bit. It can be sealed with either modpodge or impasto if you prefer. The two diecuts on the cover are from the kit.
Image




The paper with the months listed on it (as seen in the first photo's top corner) has six months on one side and six on the other which isnt very helpful when wanting to use them all, so I photocopied one side onto a light cream cardstock.
The pattern paper from the kit was measured to fit inside the covers and cut to the length needed for fitting the portrait sized 6x4" photo and the month's journaling block so they could be be stuck down on it. The journaling blocks are left blank for now as I'd really like my girls to write on them... from their perspective as well as mine.
The pocket and tag is from the kit...

The clock and 'family' diecuts are from the kit

This page has a black spot where the photo for Easter will be placed.
The quote diecut is from the kit and I've cut out little easter eggs by hand from paper also from the kit.
Image



The rest of the months are finished except for photos and embellishments. I'll wait until I see what the photos are about before choosing what needs to decorate the top page.
One thing I did encounter was that the leftover paper after cutting half (weeeell just over half :roll: ) off for the first six months, wasnt quite long enough to use for the remaining months, so instead of cutting off the 'brand' strip along the bottom... I painted it black and that worked perfectly!

I hope you will give these album kits a go - they are fabulous!

This album looks terrific, very nice indeed.

I started a 365 project once but found I didn't have the time to do a photo a day, I am sure I could handle one a month. :oops:

Wow Mandy, This kit is awesome and you have done it justice too.

Mel gave me a Teresa Collins Notations memory kit for my Birthday so I will have to get in and complete it. These kits are fantastic!

Thanks girls for your lovely comments. I wasnt sure how it was going to look with a half completed album with the rest of the months not really filled in and decorated, but you get the gist!

Hey Leanne, how lucky are you!!! We want to see what you do with that kit!!!
