The Alberta Folio

I took part in another Facebook Live Workshop with Clare, My Creative Spirit a couple of weeks ago and this is the album that we created.

It is a large Folio Album, it measures just over 10 x 8 inches and has four pages - I used the Stamperia Sir Vagabond in Japan collection to decorate mine.

This is the front cover, I left mine plain, I love the papers so much I didn't want to cover them up with anything, it is a box folio with a magnetic closure.

This is the inside front cover, there is a box pocket with a policy envelope in it, the policy envelope opens out so that you can put things inside it.  There are four leaves that get slightly larger as you go through, the first page is split with two flaps that each have a small pocket, I have placed a bookmark, a tag and a journal card in the pockets. 

The back of each page has a small pocket, I have placed a tag in each of the pockets on the back of the first page.

Page two has  a fold out flap, mine has Lady Vagabond on it, isn't she beautiful.

Below is the back of page two with a journal card in the pocket and the front of page three which is another policy envelope,  I have used a large tag to keep mine closed.

I forgot to take a photograph of the front of page four, you can see it behind page three - it is just a plain page, you can see the back below, there is a large tag in the pocket.

On the back cover there is an expandable folder, below you can see the folder closed.

This is the folder with the side flaps opened out, all of the flaps have expandable sides, this gives you room to add lots of photographs or add-ons.

Here you can see the side flaps and the top and bottom flaps opened out to reveal two smaller flaps on the inside.

All of the flaps opened out, this was not the easiest album to photograph and the photographs do not do it justice, it looks much better in real life.

I hope I haven't bored you to death with all of the photographs, I really enjoyed making this project, the papers are absolutely gorgeous, now all I need to do is make sure I don't buy some more!

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