Black and white Mini album

I'm winding a lot of projects these days and this is one of them...finally I'm posting it:)
Here I have made a mini album in black and white. The pattern papers are from Papermania.

Here are the pictures..

the cover page-decorated with handmade fabric flowers

The first two pages. Made the journaling cards and a few tags and booklets to hold the photographs. Used rub-ons as well. The stamps are from prima and Tim Holtz visual artistry. There is a side pocket on one page and an envelope shaped pocket on the other
this is the envelope page with the photo booklets and journaling tag
the inserts and the photo mats
The pages are all envelope pages and I inserted a big photo mat in each. This page has a rectangular envelope on the page with photo mat booklet ,a tag, a journaling frame and a date and year tag as well. The page on the right has a folded envelope to hold 6 photo mats in it. Have a look at the edge of the right page. Here is the large photo mat .Used some black lace to make the edges more sturdy.

this is the mini album insert with square tag inside

The pages on the left are more or less the same with little variations in the placement and orientation of the journaling frame and date and year tag. On he right is a photo mat book embellished with kaiserkraft heart rhinestones.

the left page has a corner diecut and the right has a mini album insert with few photo mats and journaling tag

the left page has the flower rhinestone from kaiserkraft and the right has a few photo mats and journaling spots


All the pages with envelope on them have inserts like this. The border punch is Fiskars Sunburst used both on the photo mat in the large envelope page and the small photo booklet.


the last page with the photo booklet the photo mat and the journaling...coz I have to write a lot..:P

and finally the back cover! made the pearl flourish myself!:)
