I used the Classic Handbag tutorial from Paper Phenomenon without the handbag closure of course. I also added 1 inch to the width of the base pages so that I could get more 4x6 photos into the album.
Here is the cover with all its wonderful cogs and gears.
I used a lot of goodies on the cover alone....
- Creative clocks and corners from Butterbee Scraps
- Gear Assembly die cut from Memory Box
- Cuttlebug embossing folder on the tag
- Metal key and brads from Michael's
- Paper line is Kaiser Kraft Betsie's Couture
- Everything is inked with Distress Brushed Corduroy
- I inked the gears with Inca Gold Turquoise and Copper
- The pin is from Prima
The clock at the top rotates!
|Inside cover pocket with goodies!|
This is the first page with all its flaps and pockets.......
|First side of first page.|
|Open the page flap to reveal more pockets|
|Back of first page. Large pocket contains a folder from Marion Smith.|
Paper clips are from Prima.
|Page mats are embossed with cuttlebug folder and then rubbed with Inka Gold.|
Here is page two ....
|This page has a flap that folds down and one that opens the page.|
|More embossing and dies cuts|
|Inside the page|
|Back of page and start of #3 with its waterfall.|
More of Page 3 - this is where I introduce the Kaiser Kraft Antique Bazaar collection.
And now we are repeating page styles .....
|The left page is collaged with several pieces from the ephemera packs.|
|There is a Butterbee Scraps filigree on the top waterfall flap.|
This is a great tutorial and very easy to follow. You can get it here at Paper Phenomenon.
I used three paper collections: Marion Smith Nirvana, Kaiser Kraft Betsy's Couture and Antique Bazaar, as well as a few pages from Recollections Espresso.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my new album creation.
Have a Happy Scrappy Day!
