This was a custom made album for a special friend. The album weight nearly 1 kg after all the embellishments were added. This 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 inch album has a 4 inch spine and was mated using various shimmer pattern papers with baby blue, pink and coral hue.
I included lots of photo spots and at least 10 areas for 5 x 8 photos. There is also numerous handmade embellishments in the book and 2 gorgeous clear photo frames to place 4 x 6 photos. The rest of the album has up to 127 places to add various sized pictures including eight massive 8 x 8 pull-out page. There were also 3 flip-open pages which is held shut by magnets and a large pocket to keep memorabilia on the back cover.
On the cover, I used some painted chipboard of their initials and decorate them with paper florals. To make the background more interesting, I used white embossing paste and a stencil to lay down a few scripts. I also added some jewels to the centers of the flower on the front cover and spine for extra pizzazz.
For the first page, I used a combination of handmade lace flowers as well as some mulberry flowers to decorate the focal frame. I used lots of white lace throughout the book as well as using pink lace for the closure. To protect the corners of the book, I used four metal white corner protectors to ensure longevity of the album.
This album features a pocket on the cover filled with photo mats, a tag and a handmade greeting card. There is also a clear frame on the cover where the recipient can stick a cropped 4 x 6 photo in. The book measures 6 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches with a 2 1/2 inch spine.
I used a theme could of pinks, orange, aqua, and grey throughout the book with a few gold accents. The album has a few flip out tabs and fixed photo mats. It also features a 3 x 4 waterfall page which can hold up to 12 pictures. Each page comes with a pull out page which can hold either two 4 x 6 photos or up to 6 3 x 4 photos. This album also has lots of built in areas for journaling.
In total depending on the size of the pictures, this album can hold anywhere from 40 to 62 pictures. There are also 2 functional corner pockets on the front and back cover which can be used to temporarily hold pictures for the album.
This was an album done is 2017. The album measured 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. The spine was 2 1/2 inches wide. The album could hold up to 87 photos in total. I incorporated many of my favorite elements such as waterfall pages, big envelope for temporary storage, polaroid photo frames, pull out pages and removable photo mats. The book had minimum embellishments to allow for a flatter closure when filled with photos.
