TUTORIAL - Isabelle Bureau Box and Album - PART 1

I listened and read all your comments for me to make the Baby Bureau box and Album into a tutorial... Well... here is the first in the series of tutorials for you to be able to make this project yourselves. I give you the measurements and make the Bureau and drawer on the video so you can craft along with me. I would love it if you would take a look and maybe subscribe to my You Tube channel and give it a share too xx

Baby Bureau and Mini Album Walkthrough

Hello everyone and a very happy Monday to you all. Just before Christmas we had some very exciting news! We had a brand new and shiny little baby come into the world and I came an Auntie again.  The joy it brings is just indescribable.  So for the last 4 weeks I have been designing and making a little (well, not so little) BABY BUREAU & MINI ALBUM KEEPSAKE BOX.  I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out. 

There are lots of places for added photos and memories plus a handy little drawer for those more 3D elements that you may find hard to incorporate into your albums.  The Bureau also has a deep acetate window that allows you to display extra bits and I have added some small card lights as an added feature.  

   If you read this blog post or follow the link to You Tube could you please hit the subscribe button it really does help and you will also be notified every time I upload brand new content to my channel. 

Photos of the Bureau.  This box is roughly 11" x 10" and has a little pull out drawer.  The other handle on the front is a dummy handle as this box has been designed to fit into an Ikea Kalax unit. 

This is the Mini album that is quite a large book so plenty of place for photos of all different sizes.  

There are a few more pages but you will have to stop by and watch the walkthrough on You Tube.  
Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you have enjoyed it.  x

Here's the next part in the Double Folio Album Tutorial and in this one I  make up the Page Sliders pages and show you how to make the wallet style pull out pages.  I have teamed this folio with papers from Stamperia Pink Christmas.

Take a little look at my new album walkthrough using Stamperia Winter tales paper. I have added a little box that would be ideal for keeping those more 3d memory elements that are not normal able to go into our albums. This is a double folio album with room for lots and lots of photos with different hidden places. If you like what you see and would like to make one of these albums, fear not as the tutorial will be on the way very, very shortly. There will also be a cutting guide that you will be able to download as well. #tamaramortoncrafts #tamaramortondesigns #tamaramortonmemorybooks #booksmadebytamara #folioalbumsbytamara #stamperiapaper #stamperia #stamperiawintertales #stamperiachristmas #stamperiaartdorota #tamaramortonyoutube #handmadememories
