Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Photo Album

Back today with another Teresa Collins project for the Bloomington Scrapbooking Studio!

This is really not a mini-book!  It is a photo album with a few embellishments on each page...It started with a Basic Grey chocolate album from a bargain bin at the Scrapbooking Studio in Moline!  I used five of the ten chipboard pages to create the album.

Each page was covered with patterned paper, then trimmed with a pen knife.

Chipboard and die cuts, Prima bling, a few banners, a rosette and some stickers adorn the cover.  Some of that beautiful red gathered tulle ribbon was tied onto the binding rings.

The inside pages are simply mounted photos with some journaling, gems from TC Fabrications line, die-cut and chipboard phrases and stickers.

and...a little trick I used to make it appear that every other page of the album was dark, light, dark, light:  The back page was the dark red with polka dots, so a piece of cardstock was hand cut as an edge for the back page, so that when the book is closed, there is more symmetry with the colors.  Yeah, I know, I am a little picky...

I hope this album inspires your next project!

Be Inspired!
