Hello :D Hope you are having a great day. Today we had a really wild, windy, wet day, I'm really looking forward to Spring!
As mentioned in the previous post, here are some more photos of the album I made at Christmas.
The first page, a spot for a photo from birth! I used my Big Shot to cut out the numbers and also to emboss the background strip.
The second page I used as a title page for the 5 photo insert pages to follow, one pocket for each birthday over the past 20 years. I did a combination of stamping, layering and stickers to decorate.
The page that follows is for a photo from the 21st party. Again, I used a corner punch to create a pocket for putting photos in. I also embossed a strip and again used the Big Shot for cutting out the numbers for the year.
I created a pocket sheet so an invitation keepsake could be kept safe.
Some photos of the pages that follow -
I created another pocket sheet, so that anymore keepsakes could be saved. I did a combo of dry embossing and heat embossing for decorating. On the pocket flap, I used a ribbon punch and threaded a ribbon through.
For the last decorated page, I again used it as a title page for the couple of photo insert sheets at the end. I used layering, embossing, embellishments and outline stickers.
I then used a Bind-it-All to bind it and I stuck it into the Cover All. This was my first scrap album to create using a Cover All, and I learned a few lessons along the way, the one that sticks out the most, I'm going to share. I used very thick board for the single sheets (approx. 300gm) and a lighter board (220gm) for the pockets. This allowed for a very sturdy sheet, but a little bit more difficulty when punching on the Bind-it-All. I added thick stickers too close to the bound edge, so when punching the sheet I had to remove them. This is something I will remember in future, as I had to replace a few stickers as I tore them taking them off.
Anyway, it is late here in Ireland, and I fear my little ones may have another night of wake-ups, so I'm going to bid you adieu! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed the rest of the album. You can also look at a youtube video here.
Have a great day,
