Scrapbook Multi-Pocket Mini Album -- Gabriella Paper Collection

This was a really fun project to work on.  The Gabriella Paper Collection from Bo Bunny was amazing to play with ... all those butterflies!

I used 6" x 6" chipboard for the cover and back, and used 6" x 9" manila envelopes for the inside.  Metal binding rings were used to secure the book together.  Generous amount of ribbons and fibers cover the binding ring.  A beautiful wood and gold tone cross necklace is secured on the binding ring as well. 

Titled, "God's Beautiful Promise" this album features scripture from Psalm 121: 1-8.  I didn't want to hide the lovely butterflies on the paper, so I used vellum framed out in pretty green trim to showcase the scripture.
There are so many pockets and fold out pockets throughout this book.  Lots of vintage lace, vintage buttons, vintage dollies pieces were used on every page.
Die cut frames were painted and hand-stamped with french script, then mounted on dimensional for depth.
This paper collection was just so pretty.  Added to this section was ivory lace applique and mother-of-pearl buttons.

This section has so many butterflies everywhere.  A beautiful fabric rose accents the corner and sports a gold tone butterfly stickpin.

This "desk wallet"  cover that is trimmed in tatted white lace and gold roses.  This fold out section opens to provide more journal and photo areas.

These die cut frames were painted with white paint and hand stamped with sepia brown ink in french script.  The mulberry paper roses are used throughout this album.

Hope you enjoy viewing this multi-pocket mini-album. You can see more about this album on my YouTube channel.

Have a most blessed day,
