Altered Single Plates Suitcase


                                           Hello my dear Blogsisters ,


                               The whole month of August I have been so busy.........
                           On the 30 st our niece Ruth married her prince Martijn
                         and I wanted to make them a present with a personal touch .

                                  It took me some time to think of something.....
                                and I hope they will like what I came up with.
                       You don't see these very often ........but when I see them in
                    a thriftshop.....I know they're mine and bring them home with me

                                        PLATES SUIT CASES..........!!!!

                               I absolutely love them !!!!! Seeing that great Bow
                                    when they open.......Soooo beautiful......!!!!

                                It has room for 20 records and I left 10
                                       of the compartments empty ,
                              to hold all kind of their own ' ephemera ',
                                 they may like to keep in this suitcase .

                                In stead of old record sleeves I made 10
                                         new cardstock envelopes .
                    Inside each of them I made one other little card and two tags.
                                     I wanted to create a lot of room
                            for photographs , and this is where they can go .



                         Ruth and Martijn both have 5 personal envelopes
                      starting at both ends and they grow towards eachother .
                          The very first are dedicated to their grandparents ,
                                         followed by their parents ,
                                the babyphoto's of the Bride and Groom.......

                           Growing up to meet eachother, see the Valentine
                                  in the collage and in the middle I made
                                      room for their Wedding pictures.

                                            Hope you enjoy !!!!

                       Click photo to enlarge.....



                                             For the fronts of the
                             envelopes I created 10 collages with images
                                           I found at the weblogs
                          that I mention in the sidebar of my blog...Freebies...
                        ( I 'm so sorry........I made a mistake some years ago
                            in naming my downloads and now I don't know
                                which image came from what weblog.... : ((
                           But all the Freebie Blogs I visited are mentioned .


With Love,

  3. Wilma......
    This just takes my breath away and brings tears to my eyes... What a thiughtful aunt you are! I am amazed at your details, i have never seen one of these cases before either, i dont think.... I have old books that held records, but not a case, i want to make something like these for my family members. What a fascinating work of art and love and family history... Oh, i long to have more things from my grandparents homes, but that is not a possibility since they have been gone a long time... But I do have pictures.
    This is a work and gift of love from hou to your niece... You are amazing!!!!
    Hope all is well with you!

    Wij hebben de pipowagen niet meer, vandaar dat je hem niet meer kon vinden.
