I have to say that I am swooning over two paper collections from My Minds Eye - Chalk Studio and Cut & Paste - Flair. I love them both and together they are dynamite! The black chalk paper combined with the tasteful shabby blues and pinks really work together to make lovely pages.
|Inside cover with large tag and the beginning of the first page.
|Open the first flap the magic. This first flap has a pocket card glued on one side only
so that you can slip in photos or tags.
|This is the back of the first page. I haven't decorated all the tags yet.
|Open all the flaps on the back of page 1.
I used the 12x12 kit and the 6x6 pads from both collections as well as Cut & Paste brads, chipboard stickers, decorative stickers and the buttons. My cover is made with the MME Record it All Things Chalk paper.
|Bits of page 2
|I used the stickers and chipboard pieces.
|A little teal coloured ribbon is nice.
I plan to use this album for pictures of my husband and I from this point forward. All the kids have finally flown the coop and that allows hubby and I to travel a bit and do more things on our own. So the pictures are going to be more about our romantic journey and less about the kids buzzing around.
A few more random page parts.....
I made two involved tags for the front and back cover pockets. This is the first one and turned out to be too big to fit the pocket. The tag has two fold-out picture spots.
|The inside pages have partially glued strips so that you can slip in the pictures.
