Show & Tell . . .

If you're a frequent visitor of CraftFusion, you know we always love to hear about the different types of projects our guests are creating and are always encouraging them to bring in and show off their creations.  Once again, we've been lucky enough that another one of our favorite visitors (actually, you're all our favorites!) took us at our word and did just that.

Kathleen Lee absolutely loves to create albums, whether for family members, friends, and occasionally even for herself.  In the past, she's come in to visit, surprising us with some of her amazing creations.  When she brought in her most recent, though, she definitely "blew our socks off" and we couldn't wait to take photos to share with everyone!  The photos hardly do this gorgeous album justice, but see if you don't agree.

After a month or so of planning, she began by using one of her favorite paper collections, "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" from Graphic 45.  When completed, her finished album holds more than 100 photos with areas for journaling and all types of memory keeping.  With a dual binding system reinforced with duct tape, the album has twelve pages fashioned in a "gatefold" style, with six pages on each side.  Overflowing with pockets, tags, flips & flaps, and so much more . . . did we mention repurposed toilet paper rolls? . . . the end result is outstanding.  Embellished throughout with antique buttons, feathers, charms, ribbons of all sizes, computer generated images . . . as well as over a cup and a half of gears! . . . Katheen's finished album is nothing short of a true work of art.  Of course, we couldn't capture all the wonderfulness of this album, but here's a sampling . . .

Kathleen created this beautiful album as a Christmas gift for a good friend, but wanted to show it off before it was passed on to it's new forever home.  What a lucky friend and amazing gift!

There you have it . . . more beautiful work from another one of our mega talented artists!  We invite everyone to leave a comment below to let us know what they think of Kathleen's beautiful album.  And if you'd like to have us showcase and share one of your projects, please bring it in to show off.  We always love seeing and hearing about everything you create!  Who knows? You just may be our next "Show & Tell" Super Star!

Thank you for sharing, Kathleen!
