Album per Maria Chiara - Album for Maria Chiara

Mi hanno chiesto un album-diario per una ragazzina che compie tredici anni e ho scelto come colori dominanti il lilla, il viola e il turchese. Poiché lo stile di questi fiori era piaciuto molto alla committente, li ho rifatti, ma ovviamente in lilla e viola. Ho scoperto solo dopo che questi sono i colori  preferiti della ragazzina.

I made this album for a teenager's birthday.




Ecco la prima pagina.
Page 1



Alcune pagine di questo set di carte sono glitterate. Per richiamare i disegni tondi delle due carte usate qui ho applicato elementi decorativi tondi: i timbri, i cerchietti alla base del fermacampione bianco, i due elementi che tengono fermo il blocchetto di fogli quadrati e il bottone. E ovviamente i  colori di queste applicazioni sono gli stessi delle carte.

Some of the pages I used are glittered.
These pages have circles decorations, so I used some circles decorations and the same colours.









Pagina 2
Page 2

Anche questa carta è glitterata e ha dei bei fiorellini viola su fondo turchese. Questi colori e la decorazione sono ripresi dal libretto in alto, dalle due taschine embossate a fiori e dal bottone a forma di fiore in basso, che ho cucito con del cotone lilla.

This page too is glittered. The main theme and colours are tiny flowers, purple and turquoise, so I embossed purple flowers, used a purple flower button and made a small turquoise book.





Mi piace fare le cose in miniatura, e per il mini libretto in alto a destra ho pensato a un gioco di contrapposizioni tra il bianco avorio e il turchese.






La carta decorata che ho usato qui, oltre al violetto, ha anche tante foglioline verdi, perciò come base per il libretto ho usato del cartoncino verde, come se fosse il prato su cui si trovano i fiorellini.

The paper I used here has tiny purple flowers and green leaves, so I created a green base as a lawn.




Pagina 3
Page 3

Per questa pagina ho deciso di usare solo il viola e il lilla.

Here I decided to use only purple and lilac.




E ora vediamo due pagine molto, molto romantiche!

The following pages are very romantic!



Qui Maria Chiara potrà scrivere i suoi segreti più segreti!

Here Maria Chiara can write all her secrets!







Quanti cuori ho usato per questa pagina? Mah!

How many hearts did I use for this page? Who knows!



E i cuori non sono finiti!
I cuori e i cerchietti sono di gomma crepla.

More tiny hearts! Hearts and circles are made of foam.




Sul retro ho creato una grande etichetta con il bordo a fiorellini, perciò la taschina l'ho embossata con delle farfalle.

This big tag is decorated with tiny flowers, so I embossed butterflies on the pocket.





Pagina 5
Page 5

In questa pagina e nelle seguenti ho deciso di creare delle paginette con delle forme insolite, per variare un po'.
Qui la carta ha dei disegni di fiori viola e lilla, perciò ho creato la stessa decorazione sulla taschina e delle pagina a forma di fiori. Anche il fermacampione è a forma di fiore! E anche il bottone in alto a destra!

I decided to make new kinds of sheets to write on, not thw usual square or rectangulae sheets.
The patterned paper has lilac and purple flowers, so I decorated the pocket with similar die-cut flowers. I also used a tiny white flower clip on the sheets and a flower button on the right.







Per tenere ferme le pagine, anche se non ce ne sarebbe stato bisogno, ho usato due mini calamite, una con maggiore potere di attrazione, che ho incollato alla carta decorata, e una sottile e un po' più debole per permettere di attaccare e staccare continuamente le paginette lilla.

I used two little magnets. One is stronger and I glued it on the patterned paper. The other one is thinner and weaker and I put it on the pages, so that Maria Chiara can take take from and put them on the round magnet.



Anche qui ho creato dei foglietti con una forma speciale, ma stavolta delle stesse dimensioni.




Pagina 6
Page 6

Qui ho creato una taschina molto piccola per lasciare a Maria Chiara lo spazio per personalizzare la pagina ed eventualmente incollare pagine di quaderno, disegni o foto.

I didn't use too many decorations here, so Maria Chiara can glue her own sheets, drawings or photos ad personalize the page.



La carta glitterata alla base è decorata con delle ruote, perciò anche l'embossatura e il timbrino usato sono a forma di cerchio.

The patterned glittered paper has circles drawing, so I used a circles embossing folder and a circle stamp.




E siamo alla fine. Volevo usare un materiale un po' diverso e mi  è tornato utile questo pezzo di juta turchese. Ho creato una grande tasca in cui ho infilato dei foglietti di tre tonalità di azzurro.

I wanted to use a different material, so I decides to put on this page a piece of turquoise burlap. I put inside this pocket three die-cut sheets from light to dark blue.



Fuori alla tasca, però, ho aggiunto con due micro mollette dei foglietti di forme molto carine che Maria Chiara potrà usare dove vuole nell'album per personalizzarlo.

Outside the pocket I added some small nice die-cut sheets and decorations that Maria Chiara can glue where she wants and use to personalize the album.








Spero che quest'album vi sia piaciuto! Se non altro perché mi ha richiesto una grande fatica e tantissimo lavoro! ;-D I tempi di realizzazione inizialmente previsti sono anche aumentati perché, anche se avevo disegnato una bozza di progetto, ho apportato alcune modifiche in corso d'opera.

If you like this album please leave me a comment. I would be very happy! You know, it was a really hard work!

    1. Ciao, Malida!
      Non dire questo, fai delle cose bellissime, perciò la manualità ce l'hai. Devi solo organizzarti per un progetto diverso dal solito. Disegna una bozza di ogni pagina, decidendo il colore e il design e scegliendo le carte decorate. Poi preparati in anticipo i piccoli pezzi, le fustellate, i bottoni con il cotone o lo spago, eccetera. Se lo fai un po' alla volta non è un lavoro molto pesante. Io l'ho fatto in pochi giorni e per questo è stato molto faticoso, ma se ti organizzi e cominci almeno un paio di settimane prima ce la fai. Fammi sapere!
      Un abbraccio!

  23. First: thank you ever so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment on my Inkspirational tags. You certainly added sparkle to my day, and a huge smile to my face! What a gem you are - and this album you've made for Maria Chiara is yet more evidence! What an investment of time and creativity; it's absolutely stunning! She will love it immensely, as do I! Albums, especially mini ones, are such fun to make! I discovered one recently that features Halloween papers (cute ones) and I'm on the lookout to find them (living in a small town in Alberta Canada makes that difficult...probably need a visit to the 'big city' at some point) to make one for my niece! Yours here is an excellent reminder to put this on my 'must do' list!

    1. Hello, I am astonished by what you say! Anyway, we often don't do anything to make someone smile, even if it is so easy. I am happy to know I made you smile! ;-D
      Well, Maria Chiara was crazy about this album! I had just a few days to make it, but I was told she couldn't believe what she saw! I love making mini albums and in general tiny things.
      I supposed in English-speaking countries it is easy to find crafters' supplies shops even in small villages, but maybe it is not like that. It's difficult if you have to go to the big city. There's a good shop not far from my house, but I also do on line shopping and I receive the items in a few days, even from the United States. I think you can receive quickly your favourite items from Canada and U.S.
      Hugs,

      Mariangela
