Just in time for Father's Day, Kim has created this vintage mini paper bag scrapbook album. If you are interested, it is currently listed on eBay -- just click on the link above.
The album measures 5" (h) x 6-1/4" (l) x 2-1/2" (w), and the thick chipboard cover has the strength, stability and feel of a bound book -- no rings or spirals -- and the front cover has protective silver metal corners. There is also a smaller leather bound wallet size (3-3/4" x 5") scrapbook album tucked into a pocket on the back cover of the larger mini album. Both albums were created using top-of-the-line papers and embellishment by Tim Holtz, Graphic 45 and Bo Bunny, etc. So many details, including copper wire, metal charms and embellishments, and photography flim, that add just the right touches to emphasize photos. There are enough pockets and multi-layered photo mats to hold over 50 photos, and many journalling tags with questions to aid in discovering family history.
Since these albums have just too many elements to describe here, be sure to check out the captions below the photographs for all the details.
This is the front of the album.
The album's title is made with a mini film strip and pop dotted for a 3D effect.
The front features a Tim Holtz pocket watch with a tattered rose floral spray. The watch opens in the rear, and the photo inside can be replaced with one of your own.
To allow for the photo in the pocket watch to be changed, it was been secured with Velcro so that it can be removed and replaced without damaging the album.
This is a view of the spine which has been matted in coordinating paper.
The back of the album has also been matted in decorative paper for a finished appearance.
This is inside of the front cover and Page 1. No detail has been left out including the front cover which has a corresponding mini flim strip.
