Vintage Album

Long time no see … ages and ages in fact since I posted … must be two weeks … well 10 days … no wonder I was getting withdrawal symptoms!!!

Better late than never I say and in between lots of other things I have been working on, here is an album which I am going to give to Amber.

That girl is crazy about anything Victoriana, vintage and just oldie worldy. If she sees anything that has lace, ribbon and vintigie she is like a kid in a sweet shop. Hence I love making things for her because they are so appreciated, loved and well looked after.

This album has a flap to it which will eventually hide some writing which her grandma … me … will write for her … and in my own fair hand. There are too many piccies to show everything in one hit so I am going to bore you with lots of piccies over the next few days.

First two pics are the front which has a flap opening.

These two pics show the front flap when opened, this is where I am going to write a journalling piece for her and it will stay hidden behind the flap … no writing in there yet … that’s between Amber and me ha ha.

I do love making albums especially when I create lots of pockets for tags and photos.
Have used loads of techniques again inking, stamping, stencilling, embossing, frantage, made my own flowers also used some of my new stamps from Anna Griffin.

Papers used are My Minds Eye, used 3 pads actually, Breeze, Paris & Co also Sunshine. Lightly inked over all the pages so that not too much white shows through.

Entering for: Frilly & Funky Challenge – Anything but a card with a twist … the twist is you must have somewhere to hide something.

    Oooooh Shirl how absolutely gorgeous is this, so so pretty, I struggle making albums and anything I have to measure. I did make your ATC accordian box but it went very very wrong. I have a cheapo scoring board but with no measurements on it so had to use my ruler instead say no more LOL! XX
