Another Page

Saturday and brrrr that’s cold … looks like winter has started but on the bright side at least it’s dry.

Some more pics of Amber’s album and how it looks when opened.
On the left is the hard chip board cover and on the right is the start of the pages … eh, only one at the moment. Behind the tag and twine Amber can slip in a photo if she wants plus she could add a little photo on the other page … between the dresses.

There will be four pages by the time it is finished and each page is double sided … eight pages in all with lots of hidden pockets for tags and piccies. Also included will be envelopes and these are for the journalling/photos. Love this album because you can work on the pages before you add them.

When you have finished a page simply add by gluing to the spine, then make two holes with the cropadile before adding the ribbon. The picci below shows how it will look on the outside. When completely finished there will be four bows showing … might even be lace … not sure yet but that is the beauty of this album you can change how you want the spine to look when finished.

The above pic is the page when opened again she can add a photo behind the twine, also there is a pocket behind the corset. Come back tomorrow and you will see another page added, this time showing one of the envelopes.
