We're so excited to welcome Lydia John to our 2023 design team. We can't wait to share her work with you. Before we jump into that, we want you to get to know Lydia a little better.
Hello, this is Lydia from one of the most culturally diverse countries of the world, India. The rich heritage, vibrant colours, the warmth of love all inspire me every day, to create something new. What started as a childhood hobby eventually led me to find my passion and follow my dreams. And I believe that we can make even the ordinary moments of our life memorable by cherishing it.
I love to organize my craft space to the tiniest detail.
Portraying my projects in the best way makes me the happiest.
Always make it a point to learn something new every single day. _____
Hello lovely people! It's Lydia here. Glad to meet you all, with my very first project for the Design team. For this project I wanted to make something that you can put together in a short span of time which makes memory keeping easier for those who are busy! One thing I love about the Simple Stories product range is that you have everything already in place for you, just snip and paste and you’ll be good to go.
I put together this mini album in just 2 hours! Amazing right?!!!!
First, cut the 3x4 double sided elements that are a part of your 12x12 paper collection. Choose how many elements you would want and stack them vertically as pages, you can mix and match the page sizes. I chose to stitch over the border, but it’s entirely up to you!
Then, take 2 slightly larger (larger than 3x4 elements) pieces of thick chipboard and cover it with your favourite paper from the collection, this will be your cover. Place the stacked pages in-between the cover and bind it using rings/spiral binding/discs/ you can have it comb binded as I have here.
Here comes the exciting part!! EMBELLISHING!!
For the cover I used a sentiment from the foam sticker and added a cute mini charm. And for the pages, you can use the ephemera, die cuts, stickers, chipboard stickers, brads and washi tape that come with the collection and add photos to document your memory.
Viola, we have our mini album done!
Hope you loved this project and are inspired to create magic with this one-of-a-kind awesome collection!
Meet you all soon with the next project, until then find more inspo on my Instagram :
