An Album Fit For A Princess!

Warning!!! You might need a cuppa for this post, I went a bit overboard with the photos LOL!! This is an album I have decorated for display at the Hobby House, my local craft shop. The album is by Kaisercraft. I have painted all the edges with pink paint before decorating with papers all by Dream Street Papers, available from The Hobby House. I have used MS doiley lace and heart lace punches on the front. The die cut letter is from a set that matches the papers. The gems, pearls, ribbon and charm are from The Hobby House too.

The first two pages have space for a photo on the right and there is a pull out tag in the pocket on the left page for journalling.

The flower on the tag is a rub on , also from a set that matches the papers.

As well as as the alphabet die cuts there is another set available that has journalling tags and die cut shapes in. The "Todays Date" button is from that set.

I think these two pages are my favourites!!! The page on the right has a pull out tag for some journalling. You can see it half pulled out on the photo. When it is completely closed you can only see the circle "life's good" sentiment!

This is my absolute favourite bit! If you untie the bow.......
.....the sentiment circle folds back with the ribbon to reveal a little envelope.......

......which opens so that you can add a photograph!

Here's a close up of the page with the pull out tag (attached to the Life is good button).

The next two pages.

The flower centre can be written on on this page.

All the gems are from the Hobby House, the large ones are so gorgeous and incredibly sparkly as you can see!

The butterflies and sentiment are rub ons.

The arrow and journalling tag on this one are not glued down over the circle so that a photograph can be mounted onto the scalloped circle.

The back of the album is simply covered in a piece of pretty paper so that it can sit flat on a table!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
