Hello Maja Friends. A very Happy New year to all of you. I am happy to start my first post this year with a special mini album made for my friend’s Granny. And you may guess that it was such a pleasure to look at all these old precious photos and to read the story of one family.
I have chosen Vintage Summer Basics collection to create with, I think it is so perfect for such family history album.
There were many photos that my friend wanted me to include into the album. It was not simple, but I made several hidden pockets and placed some of the photos under each other.
I added lace, fabric trims and some embellishments that can remind you about those times
Some of the photos had some notes, so I scanned them and placed into the album too
just love this wooden prints on the paper, so perfect for black and white photos.
I didn’t want to use any extra mediums there, just some torn edges, fabric touches and beautiful papers
I was very busy while stitching papers, trims and string
some more ideas to hide your photos:
and finally the last page has a pocket for any extra photos or cherished things
Hope you have liked my album and you have got some more ideas to create your family album.
