I have been watching a lot of You Tube lately while I craft and I am amazed and humbled by some of the mixed media and other art I have found. I will post some of my favorites here, in no particular order, so that you can also become addicted to watching. ;-)
My Creative Spirit
There are more, I will list them at another time.
Inside is room for 7 photos or journal spots. I didn't put paper on these as they are only just a little bigger than the 4 x 6 photo size.
Opposite that is a pocket with tags I cut using the Sizzix original die, Tags, scallop Combo #2. I still have some string to add to the larger tags I was waiting on it to dry. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang, Steam punk Sepia for coloring the twine.
This page is a slide for an insert.
When you pull out the insert you have room for two more pictures.
On the next page are two large tags from the Tim Holtz alterations die, Tag and Bookplates, in two pockets. These large tags can be used for smaller pictures and have journal spots on the back.
Like this. I left the tops blank to stamp or title them as needed.
Another pocket with large and small tags.
Something pulls out!
A Mini inside a mini! Room for 16 more photos!
Hmm. This is a flap. I used spellbinders grand labels # four to cut that. I will decorate this page more, I just wanted to keep the bike uncovered. Stumped.
Another magnetic clasp.
Inside there is room for 8 more pictures.
More pockets and tags.
And the back cover.
Things I learned. I should have made the album a bit taller. I only just have room for the 4 x 6 photos on some of the pages with no frames. That is OK as it has a lot going on already, but Next time I will make it a little bigger.
The craft card stock is fine for the pages but not really tough enough for the pockets with things moving in and out a lot. I ended up doubling up a lot. Also, on that note because this is so fat I probably should have bound it differently because the holes from the cinch are not going to hold up over time either. I could have reinforced with eyelets but didn't have any at the time.
Making a mistake on a page is fixable. And believe me I fixed...a few times. ;-).
I hope you like it.
