Scrapbook Photo Album TRAVEL or LIFE JOURNEY themes with Graphic 45



** SOLD **

This beautiful album can be used to hold memories of travel or life journey. The album contains 12 pages not including the inside front or back covers. I used gorgeous papers by Graphic 45 (Come Away With Me) as well a paper from my own stash. The album measures 7" wide by 8-1/2" high and is 3-1/2" deep so there's lots of room between the pages for expansion. Each inside base page measures 6"w by 8"w and is made of two sheets of cardstock for extra sturdiness.

The front of the album is covered with lace stitched onto paper, eyelet, pink trim, Prima flowers, ribbon and organza flowers and "pearl" strands. The sentiment by Ralph Waldo Emerson reads:


"Though we travel the WORLD over to find the BEAUTIFUL,
we must carry it with us, or we FIND it not."

The spine is covered in a leather-look vinyl fabric and I attached a die-cut frame where you can write a title or date. There is more lace attached to the back of the album. A large ribbon bow keeps the album closed.

There are lots of tags throughout the album. Also each page forms a pocket on the side that holds a large tag measuring (6"w x 7-1/4"h). There are also many flaps and pockets.

All papers, cardstock and embellishments are good quality and acid free. The covers and spine are made of corrugated cardboard.

(People often ask me where I buy the albums to embellish... none of my albums are purchased. I make them all from scratch starting with a flat stack of papers and cardstock so everything is handmade - from the covers, spine and binding to the pages, pockets, flaps and tags.)

Below is a video that shows each page, flap, pullout and tag.  If you have difficulties running the video you can view it on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rd2wSXRcB1Y



I'm also including more photos below.


There is a flap that opens under the waterfall for more photos (forgot to show this on the videol!)


I really enjoy making these albums so I pay extra special attention to details. This album took me many days to complete. Comes from a smoke-free and pet-free home.

Please do not let young children play with this item as small embellishments might become detached which could be a choking hazard.
