The Making of the Making of Harry Potter Folder

23:12 Karen 8 Comments

Gracia and Josh visited The Making of Harry Potter tour just before Christmas and she took over 300 photographs (I have trained her well)!  As luck would have it Ann Freeman runs a crop on the 2nd Saturday of each month and Ann's December class was a fabulous folder with inserts for photographs
(Ann's beautiful folder is here). Ann used October Afternoon Make It Merry range. I was given an 8 x 8 pad of this as a present and used it to add to my folder.  I also cut out lots of stars from mirror card - using my Silhouette of course!

Front with date stamped onto label

Ann had shown us how to make a little pocket on the inside of the front flap - I put their train tickets into it.

On the second flap I stuck two decorated strips of white card to keep their entry tickets safe.

Gracia chose 8 photographs to put onto the folder inserts.

Gracia and Josh had returned to Newcastle before I had finished this little project but she each time she phoned she asked if it was finished yet - a sure sign she was keen to have it in her hot little hands.  I posted it last Saturday and she was thrilled with the end result.

Reasons to be cheerful:

1. The wonderful projects that Ann devises.

2.  Gracia is now a Pinterest Addict and we can share cupcake recipes.  

3.  Looking forward to the start of Telling Tales.

Your project is super gorgeous, no wonder Gracia couldn't wait to get her hands on it.

BTW loving that you're blogging more.

Great project Karen! My oldest was a Harry Potter fan - started when she was about 7 (when the first book came out) but it took Rowling so long to write all those books that she was 17 by the time the series finished! It's one of my topics to scrapbook at some point.

You have done wonders with this album, Karen. No wonder Gracia couldn't wait to receive it. The papers you used (and the stars!) are just perfect!
