Another Bride's Book Completed.........

Following are pictures of a "Bride's Book" that I just completed for my Sister and brother-in-law, Nada and Daryl, for their niece Sarah who is getting married the end of September.

I used the Close To My Heart papers from the Sonoma paper packet.

 The charms are: a cute shoe that symbolizes the bride's preparations for the wedding; a filigree heart symbolizing love; a ring symbolizing the promises made.
 This tag in the front of the book is for Nada and Daryl to write a note to the bride.
 This page has an "accordian" tag holder with four tags that can be used for pictures of the bride growing up = the future bride with notes of special memories.

 This page is for the bride to add photos and journaling about her search for the perfect dress.

  Interior of the "tag" shown above.
 The adjoining page has a photo frame to put a picture of the bride in her "perfect" dress.
 These two tags are for the mother-of-the-bride to write a note to her daughter and either, invite the mother-of-the-groom to write a note to her future daughter-in-law or to add a photo of the parents and bride.

Flip side of the above tags.

 Documenting the bridal shower(s).  This pocket contains four large embossed tags for photos, journaling, "guest book" or space for the guests to write "advice to the bride".
 An album-in-an-album.  This mini-book provides additional space for photos and journaling.

 The last two pages contain photo frames for the bachelorette party.

 Back of book.
 Ribbon closure.
 I also made the box to hold the book.

OUR HERO...............a new mini-album

Hi everyone,

It's been a couple of weeks since I posted but I have been busy working on several projects.  I just finished a mini-album titled "OUR HERO".  It will make a wonderful little book to acknowledge a verteran or current member of the armed services.  I will have this album for sale at "Wind Down Wednesday on Broadway" on Wednesday, July 18th, from 11am to 8pm.  I hope you will visit me.  I will be on the corner across from Sterlling Drug. 

Here are some pictures of the mini-album.....................................

 Cover:  I used the Victory paper packet from Close To My Heart for this mini. 
 These are the first two pages of the album.  Each page has a pocket that holds three picture mats each.  There is enough space on these two pages for at least 14 pictures or some of the spaces can be used for journaling.
 First two pages with photo mats inserted.
 Pages 3 and 4:  Page three has a side pocket with two photo mats.  Page four has three photo mats.  There is enough space for at least 13 photos or, again, some of the spaces can be used for journaling.
 Pages 5 and 6:  Page five would be an ideal spot to do lots of journaling.  Page six again contains three photo mats creating enough space for at least seven more photos.  The entire album has enough photo spots for 34 photos!
Back of album.

The album measures 6" X 6.75".

I have also upcycled some composition books into beautiful journals.  I will get some examples posted in the next couple of days.  They, too, will be for sale at the WDW event.

Have a scrappin' good day!
