This album is a combination of an Mini Album and a Folio using the gorgeous Happily ever after collection by Simple Stories.
For a wedding album I felt the need to create photo spaces for larger photos, so I tried to create several places for that. Starting when you open the album with two highlighted photos one on each side.
The Album has two identical sides to it, this would also make it perfect for example a baby album for a twin. I combined the papers from the collection with gold foil cardstock and also tried to use the washi tape from the collection.
With decorating the album I tried as much as possible to use the papers effectively by using them on both sides of the album and alternate the pattern. This makes that you create a different look with the same papers and minimize your scraps.
This album has some really fun features like a hidden acetate window. But also there are large areas for multiple photos or to do something fun with the patterned paper.
The chipboard frames from the collection make for a fun way to highlight a photo. With the washi tape I created pull tabs for easy access of the photo mat behind the frame.
On both sides I end the album with an waterfall element that can hold 5×7″ photos in landscape directions or 2 smaller photos in portrait direction. I think its the perfect way to end the album!
