Provence custom made album for Tanja

Album front cover has a beautiful silver foiled pattern with french words as the focal point

I've added personalised names at the top, distressed the title black and added beautiful soft paper roses

Metal key hole is by TIM HOLTZ- there is a key hanging from the spine too

Photo matt also doubles as a pocket! The opposite page has a flap for extra space

Here is the flap extended

There is an extra page/flap here with the purple. Which i have hand embossed and distressed

back of album

Here is the 8x8 album I’ve made for Tanja and her daughter themed Provence.
When I think of that region in France , i think of  lavender and the green, flowers, springtime, fresh and classical yet modern and funky. 
There is a touch of silver foiled paper throughout which gives this album a really classy feel- I’m not sure that I’ve photographed it that well but you can see slivers of the silver throughout.
I’ve added lots of extra flaps as well as generous journaling areas. A sprinkle of silver metal daisy embellishments and lots of ribbons – to which photos can be slipped underneath.
LOADS of stamping with lots of images throughout.
I wanted a real Paris – France feel to this album so I’ve added a few French words as well as some postage mark shabby chic stamped images and the odd eiffel tower!
There are 12 pages plus fold out pages 8x8 paper bags.
I hope you like it Tanja- Its softer and prettier in real life than my photos :-)
