Vintage Camera and Snap Shot Mini Album

Hello everyone ... I have a second Vintage Camera for you!  Here is the link for the you tube video.
I love photography!  Naturally, I acquired a taste for the old vintage cameras.  This pattern is created after the large format camera’s which were designed to be used with a tripod.  The front portion is called the view plate, which is where the photographer can view the picture they are taking.  The billows (the accordion part in the middle) holds all the focusing equipment and needs to be light tight.  The back portion is where the picture’s information is stored.  Likewise, the back portion of this camera is the storage for the Snap Shot Mini Album, which of course holds your precious memories.  The album has interactive elements that show off the older styles of picture taking and storing, such as the film strip and the Polaroid picture.
   You can purchase the Vintage Camera and Snap Shot Album pattern here ... or ... just the pattern for the Snap Shot Album here.  As always the directions to create these items are in a pdf downloadale format.  They include written directions, pictures, and any other diagrams or templates to complete the project.

Exploding Vintage Camera

As promised here is the Vintage Camera made from the same pattern as the Exploding Mailbox.  The pattern includes alterations for both the Mailbox and Camera mini albums.

Dresser and Z fold Mini Album

I have another vintage project for you, however I think this would be a darling baby dresser as well (maybe I'll get around to doing one to show you).  It is a functional dresser as well as being super cute.  All the drawers pull in and out, except the bottom drawer because it is actually the mini album.  The drawers could easily hold little memories or trinkets, likes baby bracelets and other bows :)  The mini album has 6 base pages and each page has a flip out piece and a tag (your favorite baby photos for each month, perhaps, to show your little ones growth). 

For those of you who live local to Cedar City, Utah ... this is the Ladies Night for this month, so save the date:  March 20th from 6-9pm. Sign up at JoAnn's.

For those who do not live locally, the pattern for this Dresser and Mini Album is available on my website ... the link is here.

FairyLand Digital Collection
Spring is beginning to peak through a little bit (and here the wind has started to blow). I always think of bright colors and fun activities that don't require hats, coats, and gloves.  Perhaps an afternoon tea party, or a trip to the park.  The FairyLand Collection is very versitle and can be used for many occassions, especially anything super girly and cute!   
This collection was inspired by my 6 year old daughter.  She is the true artist of these darling fairies, crowns, and wands.  Her style of art is truly unique and darling!  I love it!  The older she gets the more I realize that she is very crafty and her little mind thinks a lot like mine.  One big difference we have is that I tend to be clean and orderly and she is a disaster! lol  Ah well ...  she is still very fun to make 'projects' with and I can't seem to supply her with enough paper, tape, and glue.  Thanks to her for the inspiration.

Below are some detailed veiws of this collection.

 Here is a fun handbag and mini album project, I've shared on you tube, that I made using this darling collection. The dimensions are in the video as well. :)

Handbag and Mini Album_Noteworthy Series

This month for my Noteworthy Series on you tube video...
I am sharing a darling project as well as a quick and easy album.  This video gives you all the dimensions you need to create the bag and mini album, as well as, shares extra ideas you can make you bag look like.
 This bag is made from one sheet of cardstock and the mini album is made from cards and there coordinating envelopes.  The one shown above I decorated using my FairyLand Digital Collection.
I do not have a pattern available for this project, because not all cards and their coordinating envelopes are the same.  But it was very easy to put together and print out.  Next, month I will be sharing a more detailed post of how I create these amazing digital albums.
