New Album but Still in Progress!!!

on February 11, 2013

This is another album that has been in progress for quite a while.  I didn’t like it to begin with but the more I do to it the more I like it….I have done most everything to it but the 5 by 7 tags to go in the page pockets….This is an envelope album made using 5 by 7 inch envelopes.  I inserted chipboard to reinforce it.  The envelopes were yellow and so I painted the chipboard yellow.   The front and back of the album are made from chipboard and also painted with a crackle paint method. This also has been made using a stacked hinge method using a scored hinge to give even more room for expansion of each page.  This is mainly because each page has a flip out page…front and back…so each individual page has 4pages for adding a photo.  Each flip out has full 5 by 7 pages, the front of each page has at least room for a 4 by 6 with embellishments.  I have embellished the front of each page and the backside of the flip out  with a frame, but the 2 inside flip out pages only have a paper covering so that you may personalize it even further or use a larger photo. I have since first publishing this added some doily mats and embellishments using some of my new Cheery Lynn Design dies..If you have not checked those out it is a must for a crafter.  Those dies are much better than any I have used…such intricate work.    Look at all the photos and you will understand what I am very badly explaining.  The front of the album has  cutout pieces with Memories on it.  The edges have been edged with gold rub n buff.  The lacy backing has been ruffled and also edged with gold.  The roses are pink paper roses with silk leaves.  The edging of the binding has a strip of edging in which I have made to look like pewter metal trim.  And then there is the vintage trim with the pink satin ribbon insertion.  Also on the front is one of the flourishes made with the Cheery Lynn design dies.  The binding has been made using the duct tape method and I used the pewter rub n buff on it. Then I have used fluffy fibers wrapped around the inside…each page and on the outside to completely cover the duct tape.  I think the fluffy fibers add so much to it.  I have a fluffy fiber tassle hanging and also added some charms.  The tags which I will make from chipboard, and they will measure almost 5 by 7 and will be covered with matching coordination papers and matting.
