Bridesmaid album 1 for Sarah

Bridesmaid Album number 1
Champagne, vintage, flowers- pink and purple!
This sounds like it’s going to be the most beautiful wedding :)

One of the most satisfying things for me making these albums is to think I have been part of some ones special day and journey :)
Thank you Sarah!

This is the first of three albums for bridesmaids presents.
I’ve matted most pages in an off white and gently distressed the edges with a light brown for that old fashioned feel.
I have also distressed the patterned pages but instead using a  metallic gold which gives them a lovely lift.
I’ve kept the pages light and bright with plenty of room for photos. There are friendship quotes scattered throughout.
Where you see ribbons tied across the pages you can easily slip photos underneath. The key charms have a heart theme and a real brass metal keys. I have even added rub on words to the ribbons!!
Some of the photo areas I have doubled up as pockets and they have tags inside- these I will distress a little more and I will add more tags to the pockets in the  finished album when all 3 albums are completed.
I have added extra flip up and flip out areas for more space.
The papers are all vintage themed with also a splash of foiled gold swirl paper to give it a bit of a lift.
I’ve scattered cream, pink and lavender pearls throughout too.
I cant wait to hear if its ok- then onto the next 2 :)

The cover has cream / honey coloured paper flowers and a ribbon tied to a metal key

The cute flower motif I have raised on foam to be slightly 3d

an extra page folds out to show vintage style paper with loads of room for photos. The journal area on the l/h/s is on foam so is slightly 3d

Extra little flap

extra little flap along with the tags from the pocket

the extra little flap here has a hand stamped bit  that forms a handle!

I have added a pearl envelope  which I have distressed with soft metallic gold ink, to slip in memorabilia!

even the back I've added a quote and an area for a picture or writing
