Design Team Project #2 for Country Craft Creations using Simple Stories Vintage Botanicals
What a fun fun project and so very easy. I wanted to use up the rest of the Simple Stories Vintage Botanicals Collection, as I just loved it. I made sure I got the 'frames' part of the collection and knew the first time I saw it at Simple Stories exactly what I wanted to do with it.....make a "Frame Album". This album measures a nice size at 6 1/2 X 9 1/2, perfect to hold those 5x7 photos. Each page is also a pocket that has a large photo mat and will hold many more. Each page also has a small magnetic 'flip pocket' that is perfect to hold more photos or journaling mats. Plenty of space in this album for tons of pictures and journaling. This collection flows so easily making projects come together quickly. I will include a materials list along with a link to the youtube walk through video and Country Craft Creations where you can obtain the materials to complete this project.
On the front cover of this "Frame Album", I of course used one of the frames in the collection. Photos can be easily slid in from the open top. These frames are beautiful and a must have. I also used some of the smaller cut a parts I matted and stacked for dimension creating a 'pocket' for the tri-fold booklet.
The spine is adorned with a wide sheer ribbon in pink and tied up in a pretty bow. I thought simple was best since the graphics in the collection were stunning.
Opening the album, the inside cover has a bottom pocket I made from one of the cut a parts. It will hold several photo/journaling mats. I have added two. This collection has so many usable cut a parts that make perfect pockets or can be used to fussy cut and create embellishments. All pages in this "Frame Album" are the same in style.....they all have a usable photo frame, they all have large top loading pockets that hold large photo mats and they all have smaller magnetic pockets with photo/journaling mats and roomy enough to hold several more.
Just a couple of the photo/journaling mats from the inside cover. Aren't the graphics in this collection fabulous!
This is the first page. Each page is the same in style.
A smaller magnetic pocket is on both sides of the page (front and back) and will hold photo/journaling mats.

Turn down the small magnetic pocket and the "frame" page is shown. Photos can be easily slid into the frame through the open top. The frame is already decorated so it wasn't necessary to add more.
The large photo mat from the large page pocket. All pages have one, with plenty of room for more. Oval scalloped pulls allow for easy access.
Aren't the frames simply fantastic!! This is a double one that would hold 2 photos.
Gorgeous double frame.
Another pretty frame and pockets galore!

A look at the inside of the back cover. I used a cool chipboard piece as a photo mat holder.

This was indeed a fun and easy album to create. I love how it turned out and hope you all do as well.
