My Valentine by Simple Stories 6.5 x 6.5 Album

Yes, one more project using the beautiful papers from Simple Stories My Valentine 
from the Country Craft Creations Craftology kit 

The kits are filled with everything you need to create some fabulous projects 
from beautiful pattern paper, chipboard, ribbons, flowers and other embellishments to finish your project to perfection.

This album is my own creation that I designed from various designs I have used in the past to a few I gathered from Tamra's Album in a Box tutorial.
I did a video walking through each page and included a cutting guide for each page but will not be sharing a tutorial since I used a few different designs. 

As you can see this little beauty has lots of interactive pages 
that will hold multiple photos and areas for journalism .

Truly blessed to be a designer for

Country Craft Creations January 2020 Craftology Kit Album in a Box

Good Morning!!  Yes I am back again with a fantastic project I created using 
the wonderful Craftology kit from Country Craft Creations 

Every other month Tamra owner of Country Craft Creations creates a kit filled 
with everything you need to create a beautiful project. Along with her free tutorial, a couple of her design team members also create a project with the kit and shares their tutorial free as well.

My first share is my take on Tamra's tutorial Album in a box  using the beautiful papers from
Simple Stories My Valentine 

I did change a couple of the pages from Tamra's tutorial but basically I followed her  tutorial 90%

This is the one page I created myself, different from Tamra 

You can find Tamra's video of her project here

For May, I was sent this beautiful collection from Authentique "Sea Maiden", this line is simply gorgeous with it's peach and mint green colors. The graphic are beatiful and is a great Summer line for those beach get away pictures.

 My album is a 8.5 x 6.5 cover with a 3 inch spine, inner pages are 8 x 6

Inside front cover holds to flaps that open to hold pockets and tags, with a large photo mat.
1st page has a flip up flap with a pocket and large photo mat 

2nd page features a criss cross pocket, 3rd page is a vertal waterfall page with 4 pages ranging from 
4 x6 to 5.5 x6 and a full page with lots of photo areas.

Page 4 & 5 are a double spread with a 8 x 6 pocket holding a photo mat and a flip open flap with 
mini tags for journaling and pictures 

This photo shows the photo mats that slips into the pockets.

Page 6 & 7 are another double spread layout with corner pocket that will hold photo mats.
I have 2 plus a cut out from the collection .

Page 8 is a flip up flap with pocket that hold mini journal cards and photo mats.

The page has a stopper at the bottom that holds 2 more photo mats and cut apart from the collection.

Page 9 is another vertical waterfall with belly band, giving you more 
space for those photos 

Page 10 has a flip out flap with pocket that holds to cut a parts, and large

The back cover has to smaller flaps that fold out to pockets to hold more photo mats and mini tags
for journaling. The bottom flap features a photo frame using a sticker from the sticker sheet matted onto cardstock, where you can slip your favorite photo inside. 

 To hold my mini album I created a treasure chest (full tutorial on my youtube channel).
For my chest, this was created with chipboard and then covered with papers Authentique
Past Time collection, I used Past Time Eleven side B wood grain. 

The inside of the chest is decorated with papers from Authentique Sea Maiden collection 

I decorated the chest with Flowers from my stash, 49 Market, Petaloo Textured Elements, along 
with pearls and buttons from 28 Lilac Lane Buttons Galore kit.
