Masculine Themed Pocket Album

Hi all….

Hope you enjoy this little pocket album I finished today.  I can not take credit for the design, it belongs to Kathy Files of Paper Phenomenon.  Woo Hoo Kathy, love your tutorials!  Please visit her here for some awesome inspiration.

I used Tattered Time from Die Cuts with a View.  This paper is absolutely gorgeous.  I have also used it on my masculine themed photo notebook which I will post soon.

I  just love the vintage feel of this paper.

Kathy has designed fun pockets so there is a place to add journaling and photos.  There are lots of real estate here for a 5″ x 5-1/2″ mini album!

This is the back of the album.  I hot glued the strap down so it would remain attached to the album once it is opened.

I just love how the closure came out.  I used Tyvek for the strap and inked  it with black ink.  The fibers in the Tyvek absorb the ink so well it truly looks like real leather.

I used my linen-look background stamp on both sides of the journaling cards.  A few coordinating photo mats add to the options in this design.

Thank you for stopping by :}
