One for the man in your life!

Hello crafty friends,
I'm back to share my latest Hybridchick post - it's a great mini album I made for my husband - originally for Father's Day but ended up giving it to him for his birthday.
I chose the gorgeous manly digital paper from SAS Designs and loved the combination of colours and elements in the kit. 

The file is a Lori Whitlock file (yes I use her files a lot - they are very easy to use). The file is called 'Hidden Binding Suitcase Mini Album' and can be found in the Silhouette Design store.
First I chose which patterns I wanted to use and laid them out on screen. I selected the print and cut feature and sent the file to my printer (I use a large format Pixma Canon iP8720).
fter the printing I cut the file out on my Silhouette Cameo machine and then also cut out the rest of the file pieces using plain brown cardstock.
I selected all my printed pattern pieces and attached them to the suitcase base and then glued and assembled the inside pieces.
After the whole suitcase file was assembled I slid in the printed inserts and decorated the handle, the front panel and completed the rest of the suitcase.
I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to give the #1 badge a raised glossy look and added some velcro to close the suitcase flap. I added sparkly white and teal enamel dots to complete the handle.
Thank you for visiting today! Please visit The Digichick for this great product, new in store products and other featured products.
