OK, so as you know I love making altered items. So for my first album sample I chose this cute mini album. I like to add trinkets (or in this case a dolly) to my binding. I think it adds to the album theme and makes the album seem more complete. I really like the cute wood doll.
The cover has a pocket and a journaling card "10 Things I Love About Christmas"
I wanted the colors to be subdued and traditional so I choose brick reds and browns. Isn't this dolly so cute? I wish I remember where I bought her so I could get more. The album is from My Little Yellow Bicycle.
Notice how I sewed my mattes. I really love sewing the mattes to give my album a finished look.
I used these flag stickers, double mounted on cardstock, strung them with fiber and pop dotted.
Since the title of the album was "10 things I love about Christmas" I chose to use the numbers as tabs for the pages with room for journaling.
There are 12 chipboard pages including the covers. It measures approx 6x6. Each page has a sewn double 4x4 matte with 10 journaling strips for you to title your favorite things. Also notice how the album pages have different edges.
