Hi, Michelle here!
The new design team is furiously creating wonderful things to fascinate and inspire you. Today I have the privilege to show off Chrissy’s fantastically unique blue jean pocket mini album!
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first saw it. It’s such a simple and wonderful idea! Have some denim that’s just too tired to hand over to Goodwill? Don’t just throw it out! Scissor it up and refashion it into something useful!
As Chrissy tells it: “I was hacking up a pair of jeans because I want to make my own denim flowers and pleated trims and such and I had actually thrown them away. About 3.7 seconds later it occurred to me that the pockets would be really awesome on a page or something. Well, after I cut all of the pockets off and had them in a stack, I saw my mini! I really liked the idea and it was WAY more fun than a traditional chipboard mini. I even busted out the ol’ sewing machine!”
This simple twist on the chipboard mini goes right along with the current denim trend in the scrap industry. I especially love the punchinella border and the pom-pom trim around the “So Tweet” page. Chrissy got maximum display impact for her already wonderful photos and really brought home the idea of a fun and carefree summer family outing.
Chrissy used our Lace Ribbon Variety Pack along with some Punchinella.
So what’s your summer story? Have a unique take on the mini book? Does it feature Gauche Alchemy products? Leave a comment below and let us in on that action! Or even better, upload your projects to the Gauche Alchemy Flickr group!
