Michelle - Always and Forever Mini Album

The description of this Always and Forever Kaisercraft range starts off as the collection for the "True Romantic at Heart" .... so apt! And I loved working with it's rustic colours and warm tones - and here below is a few photos from the mini album I created using this beautiful range:

The album has been started from scratch with chipboard for the cover and is about 6" in length and 4,5" across. Covering the chipboard for the base of the album, is the Commitment paper and the spine is the Promise paper - which has been punched along the edges, finishing off the cover with stickers from the Always and Forever range, and flowers from my own stash.

Inside the mini album are 5 pages and a waterfall on the inside cover (middle picture on the bottom of the collage photo below). I have used a ribbon inserted under the cover pages to tie the album.

Each page has been created as a pocket with a tag inserted into each pocket - which has a circle pull tag to pull these out. Each page has been created to have tabs that either lift or open to reveal extra pieces to adhere photos, and other pages have pull out tags for photos. Papers used for these pages were Endless Love (includes cutting out and using some of the quotes on this paper), Commitment, Romance , Eternal (and such a versatile page to use both sides, including fussy cutting the flowers)  and the For Keeps paper (the doilies on this paper are great to fussy cut).

I also used the Devotion paper to create the little envelope and using both sides of the Eternal paper to cover the flaps. I have also used some of the Collectables from this range for embellishing the album. All the pages and the edges of the papers have been inked in a soft brown ink around the edges. Chipboard embellishments and the wood embellishments have been inked to match the paper colours.

I really loved putting this mini album together - and hope you have enjoyed looking the pages.
