Sandie's Vintage Book


Sandy has another of her magical books to show us .

'Remember 'Mini Album'

 I created this mini album to replicate an antique one I am lucky enough to own - it holds photographs beneath beautiful images.  

 The album measures 6.5" square, and hosts a range of papers from the various card-maker packs, available through Meg's Garden - these papers were perfect to create the photo-cut-outs to replicate the antique one.  At the moment, I have placed vintage images within each to complete the book, and these cannot be removed.  However, a photograph can be slipped neatly over the top.  Journal pages, also have hidden tag areas, and extra journal spaces. 

Each of the pages was highlighted with various flowers, leaves, and embellishments. I kept it fairly simple so there would be room for journal and further photographs.

Absolutely beautiful Sandie - love all the pages & also how you have mixed & matched so many different papers from each of the collections.  Each page is so gorgeous by itself.

  1. Beautiful album, love all the different papers you've used and they all go so perfectly together. The vintage images go perfect and I like how you are still able to add your own photos over top if you wish.
