Fabric Album

I have been enjoying the cooler weather in Missouri (at least until recently), family and good times.  Of course I couldn't resist taking a fun class with my mom at Scrappin' Oasis in Warrensburg, MO. 

The album has 6 chipboard pages. Each page has a strip of fabric on the bottom of it.  We both chose papers from My Mind's Eye in their Stella and Rose line.



I made several of my pages with hidden pockets and pull out tags for additional pictures, journaling or memorablia.



Our class kit also came with 3 clasp envelopes. The sample used the envelopes on pages, which I did here...



I also used one envelope as it's own page that folds out...


This is my favorite page...


We spent four hours at the store putting our album together and another (at least) eight hours at home embellishing and finishing the album.



The album was a lot of fun to put together.  I enjoyed using fabric as an edge to the album.  My album has a very shabby feel to it.  I don't often do much with that style so it was a good change of pace.  The paper flowers added some nice touches to pages.  The album as a very thick profile so it was finished off with twine instead of rings (but it just added to the shabby).  I can't wait to pick out some family pictures to complete my album (and maybe a few more embellishments)!
