Nuts And Bolts Album

I love these nuts and bolts albums but I haven’t got the ruler binder which is how they are usually made so improvised and did my own version.

My crafty friend and I just laughed and laughed when we were making these. Now I didn’t have the cargo die which was needed for the front but she did (have it now). She also supplied the hinge die on the end, this is where I added molding paste through Tim’s Measured Stencil so it looked reasonably similar. What did I supply you ask … the nuts and bolts, oh and the card for the inners. My version is finished, not sure about hers!!! I have also just finished another but this time very much plainer and less inking. It actually looks quite elegant … well compared to this one it does.

Each page is loaded with heavenly collaged stamping. There are more pages to it but got fed up with the photo taking so jumped to the rather plain back page.

    Beautiful stamping in your nuts & bolts album. I’ve never heard of them but I’ve only made one album and slowly working on one scrapbook album. VERY slowly…. about two lay outs a year 🙂 Have a great weekend, Shirleyx

    Your album is fabulous, it looks like a real ruler on the front, you did a fantastic job with the measured stencil! Love the beautiful stamping inside. I have one of those ruler edges so I may just try to make up a little album too – thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration. Hugs, Anne x
