It's a record!

Well, it's true, this is a record! (Saves on cardstock LOL!!!). I made this layout in a class run at PaperArts, in Stroud, by the fabulous Cleo Jarvis, who recently took over the on-line shop Bellaboo. You can find her site here


It's such a simple idea, but so adaptable too - now I have a use for all those old albums my husband has stashed away (he buys them for the lovely artwork on the record sleeves). I dare you to try the technique!

I've not done this to mine, but you could easily drill / cropodile a hole in the top and turn your creation into a wall-hanging.
And before you ask me what that's flower is doing there, let me explain. It's another of Shimelle's colour prompts. I played around with the colour and saturation etc in Photoshop just for a bit of fun - and that flower is the result!


  1. The record Lo is a great Idea....... but I think my DH would blow his top if I niked one of his to make this ;)

  2. Great picture of the flower.

    Love that record layout. Such a good idea - I might have to visit the charity shop to get some records to use!

  3. wow that is such a cool idea!

  4. lol - I have a stash of old albums that I couldn't possible alter as they have specific growing up memories ;-) but I love the idea and the charity shop is a great comment - may take a visit later and see what I can pick up - now, what did you stick it all down with ? is this a use for the ModPodge I bought ages ago and as normal, haven't a clue what to do with it ;-)

  5. Inspired LO, love the idea of a wall hanging too. Daisy is gorgeous, great study.
