A new year a new start.

Well here it is. my first post of the new year.  I wanted a book where I showcase alot of pictures.  This particular one hold 21 and room for journaling.  I have gotten away from traditional scrapbook pages in the recent past and branched out into books.  I like these so much because as you can see I can bling it up and it has alot of interacting parts.  So thanks for being patient and waiting sooooooooooooo long for a new project.  I hope you like it.

I add som Tim Holtz corners to just pop the edges a little.  The cover has a lot of layered elements on it as you can see. 

I started with a distressed box top. I then layered on a princess saying from the Cricut cartridge "word collage. I surrounded that by so flat backed pearls and that really formed the base for me to layer all my lovely little trinkets. 

To close the book I used a Tim Holtz element and an elastic hair band on top I added a charm chain for a little exta dazzle.

Since I added most of my bling on the cover I really saved the inside of the box for pictures.  As I said I can added 21 full size pictures on the inside.  On each of the inside covers I added 2 5 picture fold out books.  I was able to add 5 4 by 6 picures on these pieces.
I then made 3 pieces for the inside of the book two hidden hinge pieces that I was able to fit three photo pockets.  Bcause of the size of the book and the orientation of the photos I needed to cut each photo down to 4 by 5 I used the back for journaling.
For the center piece I made a 2 sided photo flip album which I had room for 6 photos (altogether) 4 by 5.75 inch photos.  I didn't want theses to look too busy so I only added journaling on the last flap of each side.

I made this one to be all about pricess and fantasy so that I could maybe add room for a gift card and use it to give someone a cute little story book for a present.  Thanks for visiting my blog and as always I would love to hear what you think of my project.
