Romantic vintage style album **FOR SALE**

This album was so fun to make!  This one is inspired by SuperHappyScrapper and all of her videos on YouTube are awesome.  I think her techniques are super easy and the tutorials are a cinch to follow.

This album is for sale in my Etsy Shop!

I came up with the dimensions on my own to both minimize the trimming of 8 1/2" x 11" paper and the 12 x 2 card stock.  The cover measures 9 1/2" x 7 1/4" with a 3 1/2" spine. The pages are 8 1/2" tall and 6 1/4" wide, so that I could cut in half a 12 x 12 piece for matting and only trim one side of the 8 1/2" x 11" base paper.
Most of the flaps, tabs, and interior layering pages, etc, are made of the scraps of trimming the pages as well.  I assembled the pages with Score Tape to make sure they are extra strong and durable, and the trims, flowers and metal corners are held down with Glossy Accents to help them stay put.  There are 6 base pages with lots of pockets, tags, and flaps for tons of room.  I usually don't do vintage style things, but this paper just begged for inked edges and that type of vibe.  I made this album a while ago, and already had mach of the papers left over to use for this.
The products I used:
My Mind's Eye stack called Lost and Found Union Square Collection
DCWV Immortal Love stack.  
Eclipse Black card stock in 80 lb
Tim Holtz Thrift Shop ephemera pack, Vintage Photo and Old Paper Distress Inks, metal corners
Jolee's vintage embossed butterflies 
Joann's feathers and lace trims
Recollections Kraft envelopes and cards from Michael's
Flowers, buttons, brads, rhinestones, magnets, grommets, ribbon from my stash
Misc background stamps, rose edge punch, decorative corner punch

The left page has 2 flaps that open with a magnet closure.  The page on the right has a ribbon closure with tons of space for photos with waterfall style flip pages.  I left them blank because it was already pretty bulky and wanted to pictures to be the focus.
