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 :}
