I thoroughly enjoyed creating this album with my granddaughters birthday pictures. Along with the album, you will also find a new set of gorgeous dies perfect for your album! I've used some of them on the cover.
There are also film strips included with the album. Here I painted it with gesso and then wove ribbon through the holes. The stitched frame, arrows, and tags are all part of the new release. I have included complete directions on how I created the cover and this page below. I've also included a few more pictures for several other pages I created for your inspiration.

One of my favorite things to do with the film strip was to make a shaker window. I glued three strips together to create enough depth for the shaker. I created a hinge from the design paper to add the strip to the page.
