The newest kit from Creatologie from Carol Wingert Studio is a 5×7 accordion book that features beautiful fall toned papers from Anna Griffin. The colors are reminiscent of early fall…where the leaves are russet and light brown…the skies have just a hint of gray in them…and the greens are beginning to get a tad bit muted. Although the sample is entitled “It’s A Secret”, the kit comes with 7 Gypsies naked chipboard letters which allow you to create your own personalized theme.
The structure of this book is the humble accordion. The accordion is such a popular structure because of it’s practicality and because it’s easy to make. If the truth be told, however, most of you have probably been there and done that. So, the challenge was to make it unique and challenging to the end user. Enter a pop up photo page, a unique pocket page, a stitched page and finally, another very unique accordion that you build and then insert into the original accordion. How fun is that? The unique accordion is a cut/fold/glue structure that is called a Diamond Book…they say that a diamond is a woman’s best friend so this should make us happy, right?
What’s so cool about the Diamond Book is that it meanders and it has lots of tiny pockets to hold those secrets…plus, once you learn how to do that structure (and it will be easy with the stepped out, full color picture instructions), you can make and use them independently of any other structure. There are also ideas on how to cover it as well as how to display it. Fun, fun, fun.
In addition to the accordion, thick chip cover boards and lots of paper, you will receive ribbon and trim, hardware from 7 gypsies, Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp, vintage bling pieces, rubons and chipboard letters… plus instructions on how to create dimensional paper and chipboard flowers and unique paper piecing ideas.
