Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!
Today I’m bringing you an album I made using the August 2020 Cards, Tags, & More kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club! This kit was aimed towards an album, providing the chipboard and album base pages needed to get you going with the paper & embellishments! And well the kit may have included a set of split rings and the pages were pre-marked for holes, I went a different route and used part of the chipboard to create a hard spine.
Due to technical difficulties with sections of the process video, I decided to just create a walkthrough/flip-through of the final album. Check it out!
I used some White Artisan Cardstock from Country Craft Creations to build my cover and on my photo sleeves because it is a linen cardstock, making it nice and sturdy for creating hinges. To insert the pages, I used some Linen Hinging Tape from LineCo. It’s nice and thin, but because it is linen it will be able to take being used as a hinge! After I had my base put together I started adding in the patterened paper from the kit, then worked my way up to adding in the photo sleeves and card flip-outs. Finally, I added the embellishments I wanted on the inside pages before turning my attention to the cover.
For the cover I used the pearl strips from the kit, spacing them two inches to the center. Finally I created my flower cluster on the front cover and added on of the resin pieces where the seam binding was attached.
Now, how about some photos? I have the front and back covers first, followed by the pages in the order they are in the album.
Some of my flaps close with magnets (from my stash) and some have tie closures using the seam binding found in this months kit!
Here are the measurements for the photo inserts. For reference, “Solid Cardstock” with the circles is the light purple cardstock in my album that I used from my stash, “Patterened Paper” with the circles is the paper from the kit, and the solid rectangles is the white linen cardstock from my stash that have an extra one-half inch for the flips.
I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done using the items in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!
