This is an ongoing project and as I finish a page I will post, yesterday I showed the album cover and today here is the front cover when it is opened plus also the first page. There are six pages inside and each of these have flap pockets added so that tags or photos can be slotted into them. The pages are suspended in the album and they are also pocketed so that they will take either 6 tags or 6 photo mats sized at 4″ x 6″, the album itself measures 5 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.

Used loads of stamps but the little French ones and sentiments on the tags were all bought at Ally Pally and they were only £1 a set … bargain eh … The gorgeous image is called Ophelia and she is another yummylicious from the Stampsmith, coloured her lightly with distress inks, if you have a look at the flap pocket you will see a smaller image of her … stamped onto shrink plastic, cut out with a nestie then made a hole at the top before I shrunk it down.

Nothing tomorrow as I am off to Waterford Hospital but will show more as and when … enjoy Shirl
