OK, I have all of 10 minutes until my plane boards, so this will be a very quick blog post, but I just have to share this collaborative Accordion Album project.
Back in April I had a great idea - I asked my "Super Six" designers - my "go-to" girls who are always willing to help me out with samples for the show, blog content for the Sizzix blog, etc. - to each make a 2-page Accordion Album card in their signature styles, and send me their pages, making sure that they did not cut off their tabs so that I could connect all the pages together.
I asked them each to include a picture of themselves, their name and their blog address. Other than that, the only rules were to make it in their signature styles.
My goal was to have the album done by CHA so I could take it as a show sample to really celebrate the amazing designers who have been so instrumental in getting the Karen Burniston brand out there and better-known. I made it, but barely! Finished assembling it about 10 pm last night, well past dark, so the photo isn't the greatest.
From left to right the album consists of 2-page spreads by:
Shelly Hickox - Mississippi
Helen Cryer - Cambridgeshire, England
Fran Sabad - Kentucky
Anna-Karin Evaldsson - South Africa
Kelly Booth - Arizona
Gretchen Schmidt - Texas
If you'll be at CHA next week, make sure you stop by the Sizzix booth and see it in person. It is a masterpiece!
Thanks, my crafty friends!
