Album 18° compleanno - 18th birthday album

Ho creato quest'album per il diciottesimo compleanno di una delle mie nipoti, una ragazza matura, responsabile, molto bella e che ama studiare.
Gli anni sono passati velocemente e mi sembra ieri che era una bambina allegra e già dall'animo gentile.
Ho creato un album delicato e romantico come lei, non da bambina e quasi da donna. Potrà inserirvi a poco a poco le foto di momenti importanti della sua vita e spero che la accompagni lungo la sua strada.
Nel prossimo post vedrete il biglietto d'auguri.

I created this album for one of my nieces, a mature responsible girl. She is very beautiful and she loves studying.
Years have gone by so quickly and it seems just yesterday when she was a joyful child and she already had a gentle soul. I created for her a delicate and romantic album, just as she is, not childish and nearly for a woman. She will put little by little inside of it the photos of important moments of her life and I hope it will accompany her along her way.
In my next post you will see the birthday card.

L'album è composto da sedici pagine che formano otto tasche. Dentro ogni tasca c'è un altro cartoncino su cui potrà incollare delle foto. Su ogni lato di questi fogli c'è un timbro che lo decora.

The album is made of sixteen pages that form eight pockets. Inside of each pocket there's a square cardstock on which she can glue some photos. On each cardstock there's is a stamped decoration.



Qui potete vedere le prime libellule di quest'album.

Here you can see the first dragonflies of this album.



Alla fine del post vedrete come ho creato questo fiore e le farfalle.

At the end of the post you will see how I created this flower and the butterflies.





Di nuovo delle libellule. Le ho timbrate e poi vi ho passato sopra le Perfect pearls.

Again dragonflies. I stamped them and then I put on them Perfect Pearls.



La pagina 13 è doppia. Ho aggiunto un secondo foglio con l'effetto legno.

Page 13 is double. I added another wood-like sheet.


Qui ci sono di nuovo delle libellule.

Here there are more dragonflies.


Ho creato anche una libellula grande, ma non l'ho incollata. Mia nipote potrà metterla dove vuole, anche nella sua camera. Questa libellula è libera di volare.

I created also a big dragonfly, but I didn't glue it. My niece can put it where she prefers, even in her bedroom. This dragonfly is free to fly.

Se ho messo tutte queste libellule nell'album c'è un motivo. La libellula è il simbolo del pensiero libero, della maturità, ma anche del sogno e del contatto con le persone che amiamo e che sono in un altro mondo. È il simbolo dei cambiamenti che sperimentiamo nella vita e della nostra identità. Della nostra capacità di vedere oltre i limiti umani. Ho trovato delle informazioni molto interessanti in rete e in particolare qui. Sono questi i motivi che mi hanno spinta a regalare a mia nipote una libellula.
Ma c'è anche un altro motivo, più concreto. Quando era piccolina le piaceva guardare "Il segno della libellula", con Kevin Costner. Certo, non un film per bambini, però bellissimo.

There's a reason why I put all these dragonflies in this album. The dragonfly is the symbol of free thought, of maturity, but also of dream and contact with people we love and who are not anymore in this world. It is the symbol of how we change during life and of one's own identity. Of our ability to see beyond human limits. I found many interesting information in the web and especially here. These are the reasons why I decided to give my niece a dragonfly.
But there's another reason too. When she was alittle girl she loved watching "Dragonfly", by Kevin Costner. Well it's not a movie for children, but it is amazing.

Per fare questo fiore e le farfalline ho usato i pennarelli acquerellabili, ho creato delle sfumature e poi li ho fustellati.

To make this flower and the tiny butterflies I used water markers, I created some shades and then I die cut them.

Ho usato lo stesso metodo per le libellule, ma ho aggiunto anche le Perfect Pearls per farle brillare.

I used the same method to make the dragonflies, but I also added Perfect Pearls to make them shine.

Fare tutti questi fiori è stato molto divertente!

Making all these flowers was very funny!

Qui potete comparare le loro dimensioni.

Here you can compare their size.

Le scatole le faccio sempre io su misura.

I myself always make the boxes.

Per finire, voglio lasciarvi una canzone che quando ero piccola mi piaceva tantissimo e sentivo già di capirne il significato e la malinconia. È "E intanto il tempo se ne va" del grande Adriano Celentano. Ascoltatela ad occhi chiusi.

I leave you a song that I loved listening when I was a little girl. I felt I already understood its meaning and its melancholy. It's "Meanwhile time goes by" by great Adriano Celentano. I'm going to translate the lyrics for non-Italian speakers. These are words a father tells his teenage daughter.

Where did that dress came from?
That's so impressive to see you wearing it.
If your mum sees you
tonight we'll get into troubles.
It's strange but this is just you,
fourteen years or a bit more,
it's a longtime you don't play anymore with your Barbie doll
and you walk as a woman by this time.
That's always a secret when you talk on the phone,
how many words whispering,
and I would like to ask you who is he
but I  know you're embarrassed at talking with me.
Your room's door half-closed and you
the mirror, make-up and pulling up your breast,
and you are going out tonight,
these nights I will never sleep.

And meanwhile time goes by
and you feel you're not anymore a baby.
You grow up quickly at your age,
I hadn't realized that before.
And meanwhile time goes by
with dreams and worries,
Stockings have already replaced socks.

Becoming a woman is just normal,
but your own daughter is something special.
Maybe you have a boyfriend,
sometimes you have cried for him.
Your skirt shorter and then
malice in some of your gestures.
and you are going out tonight
these nights I will never sleep.

And meanwhile time goes by
and you feel you're not anymore a baby.
You grow up quickly at your age,
I hadn't realized before.
And meanwhile time goes by
with dreams and worries,
Stockings have already replaced socks.
la la la la...

  4. What an amazing scrapbook and so many nice details !
    Thanks for joining us at Crafty Creations Challengeblog,

  5. Ma che bello questo album!!!! Davvero favoloso, mi piace un sacco!! Ci sono tanti particolari bellissimi oltre ai tuoi mitici fiori e alle libellule: mi piacciono tutte le taschine, le tag, i timbri.... (anche io invidio i tuoi timbri... :-)) ) e pure la splendida scatola con quella carta meravigliosa...
    Le rose sono spettacolari e molto realistiche, con che fustella le hai tagliate?
    Utilissimo il punch "taglia e embossa", è un'altra cosa che mi manca e vorrei avere...
    (e già si scatena la sindrome da acquisto compulsivo.... :- O )

  6. Mariangela, hai fatto un lavorone!!!

  13. Sei bravissima Mariangela. Così attenta ad ogni particolare e al significato degli elementi da inserire. Anche a me piacciono tantissimo le libellule danno proprio il senso di leggerezza. Tua nipote deve sentirsi fortunata ma anche tanto amata. Queste creazioni acquisiscono un valore in più quando c'è dietro l'affetto per la persona a cui verrà donato. Grazie anche per mostrare sempre le tecniche per creare. Il tuo blog è una sorta di corso per me! Ti abbraccio Giorgia ♥
