How To Make An Autumn Themed Photo Album



Autumn is one of my favourite seasons with the rich array of colours you get when the leaves start to change.  September, October and November give us plenty of opportunity to make beautiful cards and crafts using the full range of Autumn colours.  Reds, yellows, oranges, greens through to rich dusky pinks, plums and purples.


My monthly DT post on the papermilldirect blog has a step by step tutorial showing how to make this colourful album and a list of the materials I used. 

It was easy to make and such fun to colour using distress inks.  The Sizzix leaf blueprint stamp and dies were brought out for this album, a large stamp with three dies, it just fills the front and the 3D leaf helps to hold the album closed.  I did add the two circles held with a brad so I can fasten cord round if my album gets too full.

You can find a selection of gorgeous autumn coloured cards in the papermilldirect shop, why not stock up on a box of mixed colours ready for your autumn crafting.
