Hello everyone! I love to make projects just because, things that I think up. Well when SVG CUTS released their Happy Trails kit I came up with the idea to make a Western themed album. I used papers from October Afternoon's Sarsaparilla line as well as a few from Cosmo Cricket.
It is really hard to show all the details of this album. I did take a video but between my allergies and me holding my Iphone it is pretty bad. I will try my best to describe it in photos.
This is the front cover. Left a place for someone to put a picture of their little cowboy.
Next I took the Cowboy card and cut out several card bases without the star. There is 12 pages to put pictures or journaling. I only showed an example of one page above.
Here is two simple pages for photos and some tags for journaling.
To the left is one mat for a large photo. One the right I made an accordion style album to hold several pictures. I had to come up with something to keep it closed so I used some die cuts and stickers to make a label. I put a magnet behind the label. The little album opens up and then folds down holding 6 photo mats. Then there is a place to tuck in extra pictures or tags.
This page I left as a blank canvas. To the right of the big cowboy a small picture can be placed.
Now on this page I put another accordion album filled with another 6 photo mats but it is facing the other way. To keep it closed I cut out several layers of the horse shoe and decorated it with some brads. Then I put some Velcro behind the horse shoe. You simply release the horse shoe and the album will open. Cute little way to keep the album from opening.
After you open the horse shoe this is what you will see. Simple photo mats.
A view when you fold down the accordion album.
It is really hard to show this in pictures but I tried. Hope you enjoyed it. I know I had fun making it. If you need an help or have any questions, just let me know!
