Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a project created for this month’s Eileen Hull project. My best friend’s son was married this past Saturday I decided to use the Full Size Journal Diecut to create an album for all the wedding photos I’m sure that was taken.
I had 12″x12″ Mat Board that I used to create the cover with but if you have a hard time finding mat board that size chipboard is the next best thing. Since the finished journal is around 8 3/4″x6 1/4″ (not counting the spine) I used 8.5″x11″ Adhesive Sheets (so much easier than piecing together 6″x6″ sheets of adhesive) to adhere patterned cardstock to both sides of the mat board before running it through the Diecut Machine. Next I adhered both covers together at the spine and strung the spine with elastic cording.
The colors of the wedding was navy blue, modern gold and cream but I was given the go ahead that I could use muted and soft greens as an accent color. I added an assortment of patterned cardstocks to the cover and placed Foam Pop Dots to the largest diecut from the Reflective Moment Diecut Set (retired) that I cut out. Next I applied glue to three sides of the Vintage Artistry Sage Stitched Frames (retired) and added on top of the frame diecut. I cut out several flowers from the Tattered Flower Garland Diecuts (retired) in White Cardstock and shaped each with a Stylus, adhered on top of each other, added a flat back pearl to the center of each and I cut leaves from the foliage diecuts from the Artistry Sage 12″x12″ Collection. I used this collection through out the album.
I started out with three pages per signatures but as I added cardstock and tucks and flip outs and waterfalls the album bulked up. So I removed the third page from each signatures.
To keep the embellishments to a minimum I used rub ons from the Vintage Sky Collection and an assortment of embossing folders to add a little texture and visual interest.
I used the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and created a place in the back of the album for candid snapshots.
I can tell you the wedding was a beautiful event (even though the ceremony was outside…it was cold). Also the bride loved the album…YAY! That is always stressful to me especially if I’m not sure of the brides style…modern, vintage, etc.
