My husband and I have our dating/engagement album and our wedding albums. But, we have been married for 20 months now and we still have tons of romantical photos. Where should they live? So, I made a special album just for our, as yet unfinished, love story. I used one decorative office folder and about 5 Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic Memory File Folders. I also threw in a few 12 x 12 papers and some Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic Memory File Mini Folders. I placed them one inside another and stitched them together at the spine. I don’t recommend stitching that many at one time though. I broke one needle and threw the machine out of time!!! It is probably safer to stitch 3 at the most.
|These stickers are from the Teresa Collins Now and Then collection.|
|This is such a pretty banner across the top of the folder!!!|
|I made a closure for it out of Pink Paislee Mistables Resist paper and cut it on the design lines. I topped it with the Pink Paislee Mistables Resist Journal Tags and finally one of the flowers that I fussy cut.|
|This closure is really cool!|
|This says it all about the theme of my book!|
|Lifting up the layers reveals more journaling and photos.|
|Journaling lends to the story of the picture below it. This is a chip board journaling tag from the Teresa Collins Now and Then collection.|
|These are some fun pics of my cutie that really show his personality.|
|This Heidi Swapp Memory File-File Labels V2 has journaling that describes all of my boo’s faces!|
|I love adding in handwritten journaling.|
|Look how many layers there are here! I have tons of room to add pics and this is only the first page!!!|
|And look how many pages there are! Don’t worry, I plan for this love story to go on and on….|
