Brown Paper Crafts is now LIVE!

I wasn't going to bother posting to my blog any longer as I thought it was something I could lose from my ever increasing 'to do' list, but then as I was uploading photos of a commissioned album to the website I decided that the blog was a much better place for things like that.

So, from now in I shall check in as and when I have new things to show. If nobody else ever reads this it will be a good place to return to for inspiration and a reminder!

This album has been made for a customer to give to her boyfriend for Valentine's Day. She writes to him every week and wanted something for him to store the letters in. It is, in principle, a paper bag album but I have left the gussets in tact so that there is plenty of room for storage. She didn't want to add photos so I have put plenty of journalling spots in so that she can write him 'Love Notes'. I have given it ribbon ties so that when it is stuffed full it will still retain it's shape. She wanted reds, purples and golds but not 'gaudy', so used Basic Grey 'Perhaps' papers and added touches of gold embossing powder and mirri board.

Hope he likes it :0)
