Architecture Art

The roof on this Tea Shoppe lifts off  to reveal a hollow interior which will hold a mini album. As soon as I make it! I had so much fun making it that I cant stop to make the mini album yet. I just started the next building which is a Dress Shoppe. Both buildings are made of chip board, card stock and scrap book paper. In this case the paper is Graphic 45. The Botanical Tea collection.  The pattern is from Laura Denison at

In progress here. The mansard roof was not difficult, but the window sure was!!

New Mini Album

I love thiz design!! It's called "The All Occasion Mini Album" and the directions came from Kathy Orta. The paper I used is from Hobby Lobby. One of the things I love about this design is that it allows full size 4 x 6 photos. No cropping!!
Spine full of charms. Tim Holtz fasteners.

The pocket on the left holds a folder with more pockets and photo mats.
