Altered media mini-albums

Hi, folks, I was just browsing my YouTube site and thought I would post some of my altered media mini-albums here, for your interest. The three I have posted below were my first attempts at various types of mini-albums.

It was a really important year for birthdays in our family, which you will see as you read on. And, it was even more challenging, because three important birthdays took place between December 10, 2011 and January 28, 2012–so close together and during the busiest time of the year. I was really proud that I managed to get them all done…and, it was soooo worth it in the end!

Chipboard mini-album for my son, Neil

The first one I made was for my son, Neil’s, 40th birthday. I used chipboard pages, covered in vintage papers. The theme was “You’re a classic,” which, in this mother’s heart he is. It was a real hit and was certainly the most unique birthday card he had ever received. Here is the video…

Toilet tissue tube mini-album for my granddaughter, Lindsay

The next one I made was for my granddaughter, Lindsay’s 21st birthday: This one is made from toilet tissue rolls. It was fun and easy to create, and Lindsay really loved it! I secretly hope she will tuck it away and someday show it to her grandchildren.

Envelope mini-album for my grandson, Austin

The next one was for my grandson, Austin’s, 18th birthday! I made this one from business envelopes I had left over from when I sent out my C.V., way back before e-mail…hmmmm, that brings back memories…but that’s another story.

I hope you like my mini-albums, and more importantly, I hope they inspire you to create some mini-albums of your own. I promise you they will be a hit with the recipients and will likely become treasured keepsakes to show future generations.

Thanks, so much, for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Mini-album Birthday Card for Lindsay

A unique card for a unique young woman!

I wanted to make a special card for my granddaughter’s 21st birthday. And, I wanted it to be unique, just like she is. So, I created a mini-album from toilet tissue tubes and filled it with lots of flowers, bling and sweet sentiments. I hope it inspires you! If you like it, please let me know by leaving a short comment! If you have a special card, mini-album or other project you would like to share, please leave a link in your comment.

Turning scraps and snippets into a pretty card!

Why didn’t I think of this?

This pretty card is such an inspiration! It was made by Gina and can be seen, along with more of her beautiful work at Paper Made Beautiful. Take a moment to drop by her site and be inspired!

What a great way to use up bits and pieces of pretty paper.

Fairy wings and sparkly things!

A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes. . .

A Dream is a Wish you Heart makes.

This pretty fairy card would be just perfect for some lucky girl’s birthday! She is so feminine and romantic in her blue sparkly dress! And her lovely golden wings must surely carry her to many magical places!

The background on this card has a beautiful embossed design, which I created on my Cuttlebug. The pretty fairy is a Stamp and Create image that I coloured with my Copic markers and embellished with sparkles (I like to think of it as fairy dust) from her wings down to the tips of her little blue shoes.  I DO love sparkles! I decided to cut her out and put her front and centre on jewel-tone sparkly blue paper. Bright yellow flowers, sparkling blue butterflies and a sweet sentiment completed this card that I call, “A Dream is a Wish your Heart makes!” Below are a couple of close-ups.

All cards on this site are available for sale. Every card is hand-crafted with attention to even the tiniest detail. I also make custom cards for any occasion. If you would like to give someone a hand-crafted card, please contact me at gloria.sauve@gmail.com.
