Past Times - CD Sunday

The challenge at CD Sunday this time has been chosen by Jane and she has picked 'Past Times'. I knew I had a Cd that was perfect for this theme - I'd won it in a prize draw from a now defunct craft magazine. It's called 'Summer of 59' and is from Krafty Hands(who also appear to no longer exist!).
I wanted to use several of the images from the Cd and decided the best way to do that was to make an accordion card. I have a couple of Die'sire Create-A-Card Accordion dies that I bought from eBay fairly recently and chose the circle version of the accordion die for this card.

I copy and pasted the images into Word and resized them so they would fit the central circular section. I then cut 4 pages using the main die and decorated each of the pages using a Die'sire Create-A-Card Filigree Circle Overlay die cut out of Tonic Craft Perfect card in toning colours to match each of the Cd images. I made a small string of bunting using a Tonic Jubilant Jubilee Bunting die and used Promarkers to colour it to match the rest of the card. And basically that's all that I did - the accordion dies did most of the work I just had to assemble it!

This is the front of the card:

The first 2 pages:      

The middle 2 pages:      

 The last 2 pages:          

I also decorated the back of each section using the same colour as the front but different images of the women.

The first 2 pages:       

 The back of the last 2 pages:    

And finally the back of the card:

The challenge ends at 13:00 on Saturday 26th August. To qualify for the prize you must use something from a craft Cd (not a download) and you must name that CD in your post.


  1. A beautiful keepsake Pamela must have taken ages to make especially since you decorated the back as well, love it.

  2. This is fabulous, love the accordion card. I have some accordion dies somewhere, think I used them once! Loving that filigree pattern it works perfectly with the 50's glamour puss ladies x

  3. Wonderful creation again Pamela. You made it sound so easy (for you perhaps) but I can imagine what it would have looked like if I had attempted it. Upside down and back to front.
    It all looks very pretty.

  4. Fabulous creation, wonderful images. Must have taken hours to make, a wonderful keepsake

  5. A really beautiful card - I love the die cuts that pick out the colours of the images.

  6. I have this cdrom too and love how you used it. I'm going to pin an image for future inspiration as it really is beautiful.

  7. I have a couple of the accordion dies but have not really used them but I love what you have made. The colours and the images look really pretty.
