Today I have a 6" x 6" album using Heartfelt Creations' beautiful stamps, papers and dies! Here's the front and side.
|Click on the photo for a better view|
I purchased this Book Binding Album at Hobby Lobby for $7.99, which I thought was a pretty good deal! It has 8 heavy-duty pages with plenty of space for embellishments inbetween.
For the inside of the album, I used corner sections of the designer papers and matched them with journal blocks. I also added solid color mats for some of the journal blocks if they needed it. Here are photos of the inside. These aren't very good photos, but I thought it might help you if you wanted to make one of these. You can also add lots of embellishments inside if you want to! (You can click on any of the photos for a closer view.)
Aren't these designer papers gorgeous? I just love these!!!
Well, that's my project for today,I hope you like it and it gives you some inspiration! Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see the all the designers beautiful creations this week!
I'm submitting this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #91 - Anything Goes.
