Vintage Travel Album - Music Notes Challenge

Today's "DT Post Card"

I love the front!  The black and gold accents!  A look just into the first flip of the album.

All three sections open.

I love this picture seeing most of the areas opened.

A closer look.

More details, love the die cuts and the layering with black.  Really adds pop!

The two tags I made!

Hey everyone!  This challenge is a to incorporate music notes!  I just loved making this vintage travel album.  I designed the album based on a tutorial I saw awhile ago.  I didn't care for the tutorial and I altered it so there was more room to layer items in the album.

I used an older paper line by GCD called Paris Nights.  I love these papers, but really you can find papers just like them at most scrapbook stores!  I used many die cuts, parts of patterned papers, and various images throughout this album.  I just love the black elements as well as the black matting to make each item stand out.  I hope you love this album check out my tutorial!

Please follow the tutorial as I embellish the album.  If you are interested in how to create the base of this album, scroll down to the videos I created showing that!

Please follow along with me in my video tutorial of putting this card together!

Part 1:  Building the base of the album.

I hope you enjoy this video and album and check out my other videos here.

  3. This travel album has such a great vintage vibe! I love the feeling of elegance you gave it with all the metallic touches. And the gold pairs so nicely with the black. It is classic and I'm so impressed at the clever way you used all of those materials! So many great lacy borders and fancy edges, along with plenty of great space for journaling. I really liked all the stitching detail, too. You've created a real treasure here and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
