Enchanted Forest Mini Album/Journal

Hello there!

I'm sharing another of my mini album/journals with this post.  This one-of-a-kind album/journal was made using Graphic 45's "Enchanted Forest" papers and ephemera and is filled with fairies, princesses, princes, maidens, a knight in shining armor, and even a dragon or two!

The album/journal was made using Graphic 45's Enchanted Forest papers and ephemera.  It measures 6 3/4" tall x 4 3/4" wide and is 1 3/4" at the spine. I did a lot of fussy cutting throughout the book and that can be seen above on the cover.

The cover is made from chipboard which is then covered in black cardstock.  I matted the cover with a page that I cut and crafted to fit.  I then added the layering, to bring texture, by fussy cutting some of the elements.  After it was completed, I added Wink of Stella clear to add some glitz and to make the elements on the cover pop.

Within, the book you will find 9 envelopes (sizes can be seen in my video on YouTube) and 3 large tabbed inserts/booklets.  There are 6 album pages and a few of them have flip out pages.  There are 2 belly bands, 6 pockets, and 6 "tuck spots."

The reason I call this book both an album and a journal is because it can be used as either or both.  You will find lots of landscape for photos and plenty of space for journaling as well. 

This mini album/journal is for sale in my Etsy Shop, here. SOLD
