So here it is, a fun little 8" x 5" album, perfect to add a picture under each pocket on the pages. The structure is made from card/cardstock and is just the right size to alter in papers from the smaller pads we have in our hoards:-)
My Ambassador box arrived direct from Graphic 45 on Tuesday. Thank you Diane, Charee and Aimee for all the gorgeous new collections. Each one is absolutely stunning. Much as I wanted to get creating I could only bring myself to cut into three papers from the Midnight Masquerade collection to use on this little album. I found a pad of An Eerie Tale patterns and solids and used the purple and orange papers on the inside pages. The colours from both collections work so well together. I had to add a few feathers to finish off the masks on the front cover................. too.
Here's a couple more pictures of the first of my little albums, the supply list and video video for you to follow along to if you fancy making this little album yourself.all the pages have a simple band on them -
the album is all tied up with a ribbon .................
