An album made using templates!

I've been having so much fun making
albums lately!  Last month I shared a flip book
I made using templates from Jenofeve Designs.
I've now made several of them.  :)

I purchased "Stack the Page" album templates from Jennifer
so now I've been making albums, too.  She makes it so easy to build and create albums
and I'm thrilled to have found them!!

Link to Jennifer's Etsy Store
and her templates here.

I made my first album with DP from
Graphic 45: By the Sea Collection.
The album measures 6 5/8" tall x 4 7/8" wide.
The spine is 1 1/2" wide.

NOTE:  This album and another now for sale on my blog!

**Please click on photos to enlarge them**

Front cover

To give it some texture, I cut out the image
of the woman and layered her over
the base cover, and then did the same
with the shells.
The cover is sealed with Ranger Multi Mat Medium.

The album has six double-sided pages
( and it contains several pockets, flaps, 
inserts, tags, and booklets.  I left lots of room for
photos and journaling.

Inside cover and first page
The inside cover has a pocket which contains
a booklet with 4 sheets of paper to journal on
and a cut-apart from the collection.  I did some stamping
on the cover of the booklet and on the first page of the booklet.

The first page has a pocket with an envelope
which contains a double tag.

Second and third pages

On the left, you see a stamped pocket
which contains an envelope with a small booklet.
The booklet has four pages of paper on which to journal.
There is, also, a cut-apart tag from the collection.

On the right, under that belly band, are 3 small
envelopes, each containing a small insert for
photos or journaling.

There is a tabbed booklet (with paper for journaling)
in the pocket which sits between the third and fourth pages.

Fourth and fifth pages

On the left (page 4), is a flap with an embellished paper clip.
When you open the flap, you will see a cut-apart tag
from the collection and plenty of room for photos.

On the right (page five), you can see a pocket
with a flip tag and in the pocket
is a cut-apart tag from the collection.

Sixth and seventh pages

On the left (page 6), is a blank page for a photo,
if you desire, or to leave as is for the beautiful
images in the paper.

On the right (page 7), I left this blank as well.
I just couldn't cover that beautiful paper!  :)
I did add a flap, however!

Between pages six and seven,
I placed a tabbed booklet (with journaling paper).

Pages Eight and Nine

On page eight, there is a tuck spot with
a cut-apart tag from the collection.

On page nine, you'll see a blank page
with an embellished paperclip.

Pages Ten and Eleven

On page 10 is a pocket containing an envelope
which contains a double tag.  Behind the envelope
is a cut-apart tag from the collection.

On page 11, you can see a belly band holding
two small envelopes and a tabbed booklet
which contains paper for journaling.

 Page Twelve and inside back cover

What you see on the left, is a flap which
has an envelope and tag on it.  Once you open the flap
you see a cut-apart tag from the collection
 The opposite side of the flap has Designer Paper on it.

On the back cover, there is a tabbed booklet
with paper for journaling in it.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I've been making.

I will be back shortly to share another album!
