Memory Album

Welp, after all these years I can at last say I've made an album.  I was sent it as part of my GDT kit from Love to Craft and Create so, although an album is normally something I would totally shy away from I gave it a whirl and .... it's a lot easier than I thought it would be.  Working with a paper pad and a set of chipboard embellishments helped it ll come together so easily,

I'll list all the Love to Craft & Create products used at the end of the post.

The cover of the album is a white fabric and I didn't want to cover it with paper so used a stencil and come embossing paste to add texture, then decorated with some flowers, die cuts and embellishments that I made using moulds and a hot glue gun.

There are lots of pages, so I've had to squeeze as many as I can into one photo else this post would've gone on for ever lol.

I made some acetate templates to make cutting and fitting photos behind the chipboard frames ... as you can see in the photo, the template slipped and I didn't have time to rephotograph it.

I made pockets to slip tags in, dug out some older stamps for sentiments, used digi sentiments, pulled out a whole load of dies and had a good old play!

I used some micro-beads to decorate the chipboard lavender pieces after painting to give extra texture.

The album also has a box that is made to fit the album - but Bev here went for the overkill on the embellishments so I can't push the lid down properly.  Only I could do that 😂

And now for the links

(I'll add the link to the album and box once it's live in the shop)
