I Loved making these books/albums. Each album base was made exactly the same, using 14 x 11 Matt board bases, then decorated for each person I made them for. They took from start to finish including all the embellishments, tags and cards about 3 days to finish. Each album contains some of the following, A set of greeting cards with envelopes, gift tags, tree decorations, bookmarks, photo matte pages, pockets, bellie band, pocket tucks, journaling cards and embellishments. The book is attached to the box, so once it’s emptied you can use it to store memories, photos and other bits and bobs. The Books were inspired by The Posh Paper Lady.

  • DCWV patterned papers as page backgrounds
  • Offray, Nuvo – Tonic Studios and American Craft ribbons/twine
