Graphic 45 Communique Mixed Media Photo Album / Journal Inside the Lamp Box

Hi everyone :-)
Here is some pictures of the mixed media photo album / Journal inside the clock lamp.
I used the new released Deluxe collector`s edition Communique papers from Graphic 45 and these where so fun to work with again :-) I used Ground espresso and vintage photo distress ink, Inka gold browngold to make this project a bit grunge and old looking :-)

The mixed media album from Graphic 45 is placed on the shelf under the clock and I did not decorate for a snug fit. Used a door knocker also from G45 for the handle.

There is 13 pages in this album so I did not use all the pages this album comes with.
They are great to use for some other projects :-)

Made a side pocket on the inside cover with a large photo mat.
Pocket with a photo mat on the 1. page.

Place for some journaling on th right side and another pocket with a photo mat on the left.

I cut down 2 pages and made a pocket page on the right.

Seen from the other side and there are 2 pockets on the right.

 Photo mats and tags taken out.

Pocket on the left and 2 tags ( regular tag album G45) fastened together with a magnet under the little slider tag.

Lots of room for pictures and journaling in this album :-)

Used one of the vellum sheets in this album and framed it with border strips. 

 The vellum and next page holds together with a magnetic book mark in the corner.

Fastened a chain on the eye and the tag on the backside.
Made an angle pocket on the right.

Flip out page on the left and I used a large tag for the right page.
The arrow die is from Sizzix.

Made an envelope out of 3 of the craft pages that comes with the album.

Large photo mat inside.

 More fun pockets and flip out camera.

Little booklet on the right with 2 pages.

 Angle pocket page on the right.
The film strip die is from Magnolia.

The pocket on the left has a flip out on the side.

Last page and backside cover with a side pocket.

The hat from the configuration box can also be attach on the gentlemans hat.

Made this  lamp clock for my eldest son as a gift for his new house :-)

  2. Absolutely wicked project and once again so great ideas in the album! Thank you so much for sharing, Anne :-)

  3. Anne - thanks for showing us this project. I have a pad of these papers from a few years back and now I have the perfect project to use them for thanks to you. All your projects are super. You have one of the most creative minds I have ever seen. Give you doggie kisses

  4. Wow fabulous mixed media project.

    Hugs Diane

  5. Anna you are, always inspiring. I loved the masculine take for this line of paper, thanks for sharing.

  6. Absolutely fabulous. Thank you for the last bit showing the way to make the hinges.

  7. For other people who don't have their hearts set on the exemplary look, an advanced booth might be the appropriate response. Computerized booths have the upside of being light weight and very portable, and in this manner are less expensive, typically going from $1000-$1200 for an occasion. trade show displays
