I can tell you all about this:
You might remember the image from my POST BACK IN SEPTEMBER.
This is Lechatelier photo album and it is now available at MY ETSY STORE. Since Etsy allows only 5 images per listing (unless you pay extra) I will show all the details of the album here.
The album was a breeze to make, I think it is mostly because of the paper: I fell in love with BASIC GREY'S CURIO COLLECTION the moment I saw it. I bought several sheets, paired it up with paper from my stash and began creating.
Surprisingly, the album cover was the most challenging part. I just could not find a colour that would tie everything together. Finally, I decided to use HELLO LUSCIOUS collection from Basic Grey. I contemplated between 2 different designs and picked the green one. I really like how it pairs up with all the embellishments.
By the way, it is the same paper I used for ONE OF THE CARDS from this line.
I decided to leave the inside of the front page almost bare. To add some functionality, I made a roomy pocket for extra photos, keepsakes, or notes.
A cute card, attached to the pocket creates a perfect place for journaling.
The second page was actually the first one I made. I was excited to try TIM HOLTZ'S DISTRESS CRACKLE PAINT and was super happy with results.
I aged the die cut card and lightly stamped onto it. I think it would be a nice spot for a photo caption.
Finally, I layered paper and embellishments to decorate the page, without making it too ornate.
The album is availalbe at BRASS AND RUFFLES Etsy boutique. I will show more of it throughout this week.
