Elegance Album

This is the completed album that I created following one of the My Creative Spirit Facebook Live classes that was taught by Clare Charvill, there are classes every fortnight and I have learnt so much from Clare.


This is the front of the album, I have kept it flat because it goes inside a shadow box that was also part of the class - you can find it HERE.


Above is the inside cover and first page, there is a tag and a little card in the flap on the inside cover - they have lovely verses about Mum on the inside.  Below you can see the first page open, there is a flap that tucks into a pocket and a photo mat that goes inside a large pocket, plenty of room for photographs.  There are four pages in total, and they alternate between this arrangement and the one I will show you next.


Below is the back of the first page and the front of the second, there is a small flap that opens to reveal small pocket that I have placed a journal card in.


The next photo shows the flap open and the journal card tucked into the small pocket along with another photo mat that fits into a large pocket.  All of the small flaps have magnets to keep them closed.


Below you can see the back of page two and the front of page three, I haven't photographed page three opened out as it is very similar to page one.


The next photo is the back of page three and the front of page four, this is the same as the front of page two.


Finally, you will be pleased to hear, you can see the back of page four with a little belly band that you can tuck photographs behind and the inside of the back cover.  There is a pocket, the same as the back of the front cover, into which I have placed a card with an other lovely Mum verse on the inside.


I am really enjoying creating these albums and following along with the My Creative Spirit Facebook Live classes, Clare is an excellent teacher and shares lots of tips and ideas.  I'm also using up lots of my stash of papers, I just need to make sure I don't buy another set to replace them.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Jules said...

Hi Pauline

Well this project has been a real labour of love.

It must have taken you hours and hours and hours to complete .. .. .. you should be super proud of it all because it is totally amazing!

I must admit I would probably replace the papers. They are very beautiful!

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx

Thoroughly beautiful album. Swoon!!! The colour palette here is amongst my all-time favourites and, perhaps not all that surprising then, makes up a sizable percentage of my current wardrobe.

its so pretty!

Albums like this one would make great personal gifts, but I’m afraid of the time I would spend (I’m a slow crafter, most of the time) and can’t see how I’d be able to pick coordinated papers. I so admire what you’ve done here.

Sue said...

This is such a beautiful project!
