Lovely Margot Minialbum or…New Prima Collection Rondelle

Can you make it through another CHA project? LOL- I have been quite busy before CHA ;) Here is another Prima Project using the new collection Rondelle.

I have to say this is not only my favorite line that Prima released this summer….

it is also my favorite project using some wonderful old photos I found of my beloved aunt

I used an old grammar book

and this is probably turning into an upcoming class

The embellishments are so cute

and I am in love with those clothespins

and the stamps

and the flowers are some of my faves too

    I found an old English grammar book that was my mother’s in school and it has some of her doodles in it and I think I will do this with it. I was trying to think what I could do with the book and still have a bit of “her” inside. I have some older pictures of her and some family pics that I can add. Thanks very much for sharing this wonderful project Natalie.

    Mannmann, ich bin ja gerade nich so bastelmäßig unterwegs, aber jetzt hätte ich Dich gern auf ‘ne Runde hier um mich, damit Du mir die Falterei näher bringst und noch einiges mehr. Totales Schmuckstück geworden!

    Awesome job Nat!! I love old books and have a couple waiting to be altered! Hope to see an online class on altered books. Your pictures are priceless especially the beach photo. I have pictures of my mom in the 1940’s style bathing suits – what a hoot!! Thanks for sharing!!

    This book is gorgeous! I love the ways some of the pages are folded. And the vintage look of a lot of the embellishments is really cool. Is that diamond border on the cover from a stamp?

    Absolutely stunning, Nat! Your details and fun folds are so cool, and the vintage book with those vintage photos are perfection! I’m sorry Auntie has been through a hard week, and I know a hard week for her means a hard week for you. What a wonderful way to find a bit of escape while maintaining a strong connection. Hugs to you both!

    Altered books are my favorite projects and I love this one!!! The folds and tags are great. This collection works wonderfully with the old book pages.

    This is so moving! I feel like I know your aunt seeing it. I am inspired to make a book about my late mother now with an old book that she would have loved and b&w photos. Thank you.

    I hope that Auntie Margo will be feeling chipper again soon.
