When my daughter Rachel got married last November the camera went into overload. I downloaded the photographs to my external hard drive and when anyone wanted to look at them out came the lap top .
So I decided I would make myself a little album to show people and let the photographs tell the story of what a wonderful day it was.
The outside of the book is made with the Tattered Angel Glimmer Chip Tiles, Nature. I bought these in the Graphicus sale and put them to one side, you know how it is, you will always find a use for them at a later date. I distressed the tiles with Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inkpads and gave them a quick spray with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Once that was dry a quick spritz with hairspray fixed the colour.
A pearlescent card was used for the pages and the corners were cut with the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper, Scallop/Cloud. The edges of the pages were gilded with a Krylon gold pen. The book was bound using the Bind-it-All.
This is the first page, the Romance Rub-Ons look really good. I placed vellum pages between to protect the photographs. As you can see the pages overlap each other as the album is bound at both sides.
The photo corners are a Cuttlebug Die and just lend themselves to the photographs giving it all a touch of class. In hindsight (hindsight is a great thing) I should have put the photographs, corners, done the stamping and everything else before I bound the book, it would have been much easier than working with the completed book. In saying that I did take it to bits at least twice. The stamps are from the DL stamp set Hearts and Flowers.
A little album to keep and treasure.
