A warm welcome to my new followers and regular visitors of my blog. Today at A Vintage Journey is the start of a new challenge called Love is in the Air, chosen by Astrid. For my DT post, I decided to make a Memory Album which is roughly 6 inches square which I gave to my Husband Chris - AKA The Photographer, on Our Anniversary to hold photographs of us on each year as we celebrate our Special Day.
I used a link from YouTube to make my Memory Album which is HERE. I did make a few adaptions to it along the way, but It's well worth a look should you want to make one.
I used chipboard sheets to make my Memory Album to give it the feel of a book. I layered on Kraft core paper which was tattered at the edges using Tim's Distressing tool.
Cream patterned paper was next added which I had layered Stencilling with Distress ink and Sentiment stamps with Archival Ink.
I also added Die Cuts and Metal Corner embellishments.
You will see on the inside of my album I painted the perimeter and added a text stamp with Archival ink before gluing in my pages to the album.
On the Spine of my Album I added a layer of Kraft Card wrapping it an inch over the edge of the front and back. Next layering on lots of garden string with PVA glue, once dry I trimmed the edges.
I punched a hole with my Crop-a-dile and added some Ideaology and old beads.
A couple of ATC's were made using inks and stamps with personal messages on the back, which slip into their pockets.
Inside I have strengthened the flexible spine using Tim's Tissue Tape and I love the finish it gives to my album.
As my pages are completed I will add Tags with more handwritten memories, little pockets and flaps to lift, using Tim's Style and goodies.
