I hadn't made anything like this before and i was honoured to be asked to make something so special.
The Sea and Sand collection by 49 and market were i perfect paper for making such an album. they are a very heavy weight cardstock, therefore great for making pockets and staying secure once folded and scored.
I decorated the front with mulberry paper flowers and sea glass. The closure was held to gather with a magnet. I just love the jelly fish on these papers. Kinda reminds me of finding nemo!
I left the inside fairly plain with room for keepsakes some photos and plenty of room for journalling. i used some bo bunny 'down by the sea' and some bazzill texture card for the inside. I used a martha stewart edge punch to create the edging patterns. I then used the We r Memory keepers envelop punch board to make a few envelopes on the back pages.
Usually i would embellish a lot more on the inside but this was asked to stay a plainer contents. I think overall this was a great idea because the papers are really beautiful and it allows them to be shown off to their potential.
Thanks for reading and happy crafting pickles!!
