Sizzix Friday: Travelling Family Album

Hi friends!
Today on Sizzix.uk blog I'm sharing details of the new project - travelling journal inspired by old family photos... and tea! This altered book is starting it's journey on Sunday - and when I'll get it back it will be full of beautiful pages done by wonderfully talented creative friends :) I can't express how excited about this project I am!



About altering the book: I didn't want to lost it's beauty under heavy paint, spraying or texture - that's why I decided for only some Tim Holtz add-ons: few metal embellishments  alphabet Sizzix die (Word Play) and  plain cotton ribbon to close the book.
I used Glossy Accents from Ranger on the floral elements and Crackle Accents on the painted chipboard letters. I love the efect!


On the Sizzix blog you can see the book before altering, but also have a detailed peek inside: I've made double page with envelope and one of my favorite photos of my dad and his brother! You will also find a full product list and some detailed photos :)

I hope you like it - I'm totally in love and I know I HAVE TO make another book just for myself!!!
Tomorrow I'm sharing more of the pages - stay tuned!
xoxo
Finn

This is gorgeous! Wondering how you covered the rest of the inside pages. Looks like the book print on each page is white instead of printing. Did you take the other pages out and replace them with paper? Thanks for the inspiration.
