Vintage Album

Today's "Album"

Hey everyone! I made this album from scratch, I don't like to buy albums...what fun would that be, so I make my own with card stock and chipboard. I love this vintage feel. I used (I believe Basic Grey) papers. I used some spellbinders to layer up some mats. I added some metal (Prima) elements, bling, flowers, and so much more. I even took this old shopping bag and used matching papers to have a matching bag to place the album in. Check out the front and the back. I love this rounded spine:

I love this wooden clock which I painted to make it look more aged.  The spellbinders dies really add some details also to the front.

I love that rounded spine!
Simon Says makes that banner die.  I love their products!

On the left you can see I took two different stickers and adhered them on the page to create a "pocket". Then I added another mat.  This is great to do with stickers!

I love how pretty the papers are.

I used some sentiments to add a "bookie" feel.  I think that albums need more than flowers and I love adding these sentiments.

This is one of my favourites with the greens and yellows together.  I love the diagonal pocket for something different!

I love the bag, it just adds something to the album.  Again matching the papers and creating a secondary item to the album.
