As I was designing my new classes, I had an idea for an album that would be both a book and a portfolio, but nothing like that existed, so I decided to create my own! The result is a super cool album with pages and “flips” and the fun interactive elements that I love in a book. Once you create this original album, you’ll be able to fill it with happy moments and recreate it in different sizes and for different purposes. When opened, this portfolio album is about 24" across!
Using pretty pieces from Crate Paper's new Craft Market and Confetti collections, we’ll create our books step by step together, featuring the darling vintage embroidery image on the cover. As always, your class kit will contain lots of paper options to use for the cover to make it your own. The little wood embroidery hoop finishes it off perfectly!
