Well there was no 'fun in the sun' here yesterday I can tell ya! and it doesn't look like it's happening today either - unless it warms up soon.
I have made a summer photo album and hope to put some pictures in it from my holiday this year on the East Norfolk coast but if it doesn't warm up soon I will be pictured in my warm woollies instead of summer T-shirts :/
It holds standard 4" x 6" photos but I plan to collage them with an editing program to get more than that to fit in.
You may remember the tag I have used on the front, it was made for a recent DT project for 613 Avenue Create and thought it would make a fabulous addition to the front cover. Details of that can be found in this post. What do you think?
The title and crab embellishments were cut on my Silhouette Cameo and the wave is a La, La Land Die-cut.
I constructed the pages and covers from kraft card and folded them in half and glued for strength. These were then covered with digital papers from Snap, Click, Supply Co using Bo Bunny - Barefoot Bliss and Echo Park - Walking on Sunshine papers and the album was bound with my Cinch. This is probably only about the third time I have used this binding machine and I really should make more books and albums with it as it is a fabulous piece of kit. I just can't seem to find the time to make many things for myself, they are all commissions or DT work nowadays.
Each page has two die-cut corners attached diagonally to tuck your photos under and these were cut using a die from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accent Set.
Here is a collage of the album showing all the pages and papers...
...and some larger photos showing more detail...

Well thanks for stopping by, it's a bit of housework for me (the dreaded ironing :/ ) then I've earned a play in my room, so I will be round to comment a bit later.
