Hinged Books {TTCRD Challenge May 12-18}

{My DT work for TTCRD}

Hi everyone! Time pass by so quickly and unbelievable that we are now living on the 12th day of May. So what have I been up to? The usual routine of course except creating different things day by day depending on my mood. Today is time for another challenge at Through The Craft Room Door and as usual we allow you to link up with your own two Anything Goes projects this fortnight.

I have made two mini books using hinges; something I have been aiming doing in several moonlights over the years and only now I managed. I remember buying the hinges two years ago! Enough blab; here's the pictures:
 Supplies of products used can be read in TTCRD the upcoming edition of July/August magazine. Click here for magazine subscription/renewal.

Some close-up pictures:
I made these little books for my girls who want something different. This is not my original idea however. I came across this wonderful idea while reading an Australian magazine way back in 2007. My credit goes to Brigette Grant whose lovely hinged albums was published in Stamping & Papercraft magazine Vol.11 No 3. I tried in vain to get in touch with her so I could thank her personally. If any of you know her, please email me {thank you}.

This is an easy project to make but bear in mind that the size may be small yet it is quite heavy so be careful not to drop it and hurt your toes!

I'm taking these little books into these challenges:
1. 613 Avenue : Anything Goes
2. Craft Your Passion : Anythingg Goes
3. Sister Act Card : Anything Goes
4. Inspiration Destination : Anything Goes

Once again, please know how thankful I am for seeing you here and supporting my work. I shall always try to return the favor whenever possible. 

Hugs and smiles,
